The Frontera Fund Continues To Support DACA In Its Mission To Protect Immigrants

The United States of America is called the land of dreams where endless wonders come true, because of the policies that support the rights of people living in the USA. However, due to various incidents that have recently occurred such as racial profiling, segregation, and discrimination of immigrants, people have started to question if the United States of America will stay true to its once made promise.

Organizations such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Frontera Fund have stepped up to the challenge and have been walking the talk since these organizations were founded. The founders of these initiatives have been toiling on a daily basis to ensure that various types of minorities, especially immigrants are protected, and they are not denied their civil rights.

DACA works on the principle of providing eligible undocumented youth immigrants with a social security number and the chance of a lifetime to work in the USA for a renewable period of 24 months. These attempts are made to prevent youth immigrants from being deported as a result of arriving as children in the USA without proper documentation.

The Frontera Fund was established by Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, two citizens that lived in the Maricopa County, that were made to be the victims of a vengeance scheme plotted by Joe Arpaio. Although Joe Arpaio, as a law personnel was sworn in to protect the people of his county, he did the opposite of this. This fund was established in 2013, with the settlements in the name of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey that were received as a result of many years of legal battles with the Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Ever since then, the Frontera Fund has been actively engaging in various methods to protect the Hispanic people of Arizona. These attempts have been in conjunction with DACA and other noble organizations.

Good things rarely last for a long time, and with the arrival of the Trump Administration, a few members of GOP and other extremist groups have strengthened their hold and are making an increasing number of claims to deport immigrants. Due to the actions of these radical groups, the direct result was a letter released by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that was directly addressed to the Trump Administration to rescind the DACA program. This letter dated 5 September 2017, mentioned that legal action will be taken if the demands are not met promptly.

The letter that was crafted by Nine attorneys general and one governor of red states did work wonderfully to persuade the Trump Administration from allowing DACA to continue helping immigrants who had nowhere else to turn. However, this very letter might also have also been responsible for killing the hopes of thousands of immigrants who were working continuously to improve their life while contributing to the growth of their community. Although DACA has shown remarkable progress in the last five years to advance the economic growth of the country by promoting education, this organization will not be allowed any further to take in new applications from now on.

While people might wonder if the statements and claims that are made by GOP along with the support of the Trump administration are justified, groups such as the Frontera Fund, DACA along with numerous civilians, continue their fight to put humanity over everything else and treat everybody with utmost respect.
