The whole Latino and migrant community in Arizona felt disappointed after President Donald Trump issued a pardon for Joe Arpaio.
They stated that they could not believe the decision of the president, and they have been working with two of Arizona’s brightest migrant activists – Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin – to persuade the president to change his decision.
Joe Arpaio, known as the best and the toughest sheriff in the United States, has already warned the public that if he would be sent to prison for contempt, President Donald Trump will be releasing him right away.
The two have a strict stance on the issue with immigration, and the latter stated that he would not welcome immigrants, especially those who are undocumented, in the state of Arizona.
The infamy of Joe Arpaio was published online, and it became viral overnight. The post was made after he announced his plans to run for the Senate.
The posts that are being shared thousands of times of social networking giants have shown how Joe Arpaio treated the migrant population.
One of the posts talks about a pregnant woman who was left to die by the heartless sheriff, and he claimed that whatever the medical condition is, without papers, outsiders would not be able to enter the country.

Back in 1992, when Joe Arpaio was named as the sheriff for the Maricopa County, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin already wrote an article critical of him. Joe Arpaio saw this as an attack on him, so for the next couple of years, he would consider the two as his enemies.
The feud between the sheriff and the writers would broaden after the arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. The public saw it as a complete violation of the constitution, and they put pressure on the judge who is handling the case.
In the end, their case was junked, but Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin filed another petition and sued the Maricopa County. The two earned $3.75 million, and they are using the funds today as a part of the larger Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are using all of their influence and networks to ensure that Joe Arpaio would never make it to the Senate.
