Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey began their path in altruism after an incident with Joe Arpaio, the Sheriff of Maricopa County. Joe Arpaio was less than reasonable during his time as sheriff, arresting people illegally and intimidating his political opponents.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were victimized by Arpaio when they were arrested for their journalistic efforts. The newspapermen started The Frontera Fund, a charitable organization that works to better the lives of Hispanics and Hispanic-Americans. Jim and Michael assist Hispanics simply because Joe Arpaio targeted Hispanics. As fellow victims of Arpaio, they can relate.
The Frontera Fund works along side the ACLU, Aliento, and many other prominent immigrant focused charities. Michael and Jim have also provided immigrants and potential immigrants with educational reading material on The Frontera Fund website.
There are many other immigrant focused charities currently operating in the United States. With the current administration in the white house, immigrants are going to need all the help they can get. Donald Trump has already issued bans on Muslims and talked about future plans to build a wall between Mexico and the United States. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Twitter
The International Rescue Committee was founded in memory of Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein is one of the most intelligent people to ever live, and he is still respected by modern scientists.
This organization is working to directly combat Trump’s Muslim ban. They have also partnered with HBO and Game Of Thrones to provide relief for the refugees of the Syrian Civil War. The Game of Thrones casts urges their fans to “Rise Up. Stand with us” in the new ad campaign.
The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, like The Frontera Fund, operates out of Arizona. This organization provides services to non-Americans who are arrested or detained in Arizona. This organization provides free legal and social services to both adults and unaccompanied children facing trouble at the border.

The Immigrant Defense Project is another organization that assists would-be deportees. This organization is different from the charities mentioned above. This organization puts education first, fighting for a long term goal, educating the future leaders of the world on migrant rights.
With Republicans in control of both houses of congress, this is the only way the people of America can speak up against the immoral viewpoints of Donald Trump towards non-Americans. Impeachment is unlikely as long as Republicans hold the majority on Capital Hill. These organizations are all that stand between happy lives for hundreds of thousands of people and deportation.
