Larkin & Lacey vs Donald Trump
In an article by the phoenixnewtimes, it explains how disgusted and offended many were for President Trump’s pardon of a racial-profiler. The article goes on to explain how Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff who had a lawsuit against him for his unjust actions, was pardon just weeks before he was scheduled for sentencing.
The pardon itself was not as offensive to people as the timing of the pardon according to many people.
Where Larkin & Lacey come in is their powerful platform. With the news of the pardon, the article alludes to how successful the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund were in voicing the opinions and animosity the general public had against president Trump. In addition to this, both Jim Larkin & Michael Lacey individually voiced their resentment towards the president of the United States and his own actions to pardon such a universally disliked person.
With Jim Larkin himself pointing out president Trump’s low approval ratings, he also was quick to say that Trump’s actions to pardon the sheriff were a way to show his position of authority over the Mexican people in the United States and Mexico.
Wheather that is true or not, one thing that is certainly true is that impact that Larkin and Lacey have had thus far. Just like any other fund or advocacy group, the lacey & Larkin Fund does have its supporters as well as haters but, does not plan on stopping in their efforts to improve the greater good of the people.
