They have dedicated their resources, skills and time to the push for the rights of the immigrants across those states. They have always wanted to show these people how well they can do simple things. Their stand is just ensuring that there is greater consideration for these great people.
These problems of the immigrants being mistreated started way back when the existing presidents did not care about the undocumented citizens. Since then they started facing a lot of challenges even from the authorities.
The minorities and most of them happened to be extremely poor were not given a chance to express themselves neither did they have the best environment to expand their skills.
Larkin and Lacey ended up becoming great supporters of the immigrants when they were the journalists at the Village Voice Media. The company was an alternatives newspaper in the city of Arizona.
They were also from the Spanish world and thus committed their life and excellence in the pursuit of the rights of the immigrants. It is also worthy to note that Arizona was actually located at the Mexican border and they used to host a lot of immigrants from the Spanish world.
As a result, there emerged so many immigrants defenders who were committed to pursuing different actions. Larkin and Lacey founded the famous Larkin & Larkin Frontera Fund from the money they had received a settlement in their case against Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio.
