Every single one of us should fight for justice and equality for all. There are many different worldviews where social justice is important. There are atheistic humanitarians who believe it is within our power to create utopia. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Facebook
There are naturalists that believe we have even called beyond our ancient ways of discrimination. Then there are those like me who are Christian and believe God desires them to promote social justice and fight for those he would consider oppressed.
Regardless of your reason why you are engages social justice; we all can agree that the American dream is not just belong to those inside the United States of America. Our country grew because immigrants came from other countries to hear in order to pursue a greater life.
We tell stories of how great and brave our ancestors were for doing such a thing. And yet, today, we look at the Mexican population coming across the border and act as if they have no right to a better life.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have moved to the front lines of the American political debate concerning immigration and they argue that we should extend the hand of fellowship to the Hispanic community. They rightly believe that the Hispanic community has every single right to pursue the best life for them and their families.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken to social media and newspapers in order to tell stories so that the hearts of the American people may be moved to welcome our Mexican brothers. In their reporting, they often discuss a name, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio.
Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is the head Sheriff in the Maricopa County. He is known across this nation as a hardliner and a ruthless man who takes extreme measures against immigration. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have reported on these extreme measures so that American citizens may call for justice.
Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is guilty of stacking the police department in the Maricopa County so that it was full of those who would racially profile Hispanics.
On top of this, he also stacked the security guards in the local prisons with those who hated Mexicans. This led to needless abuse of Hispanic men and the death of many Hispanic women.
Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is a man who believes he is above the law. He does not believe he needs to listen to the rules that regulate everybody else. He thought it would be right for him to take away the first amendment of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.
In the middle of the night, he grabbed his personal Army and loaded up in black SUVs and went to the homes of these two men. Under the threat of murder as well as detention for life, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio ordered them to shut down their media organization.
News concerning this action spread across the country like wild fire with people calling against this action and demanding that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin be released to their homes.
