Jim and Michael are no exceptions since they pooled minds and thoughts and then initiated the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media.
They pooled money that arose from the settlement of their arrest by Sheriff Joe Arpaio to sponsor the right of migrants in the organization that advocates for justice and equal treatment to all in the entire state of Arizona.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin obtained settlement money for being arrest by Joe Arpaio who was the Sherriff attached to Maricopa County. The journalists were apprehended at midnight for having disclosed the existence of great proceedings by the jury that pitted the Sheriff.
The jury needed the notes in the custody of the reporters which contained the information of Sherriff Joe Arpaio.
The jury demanded to figure out those who accessed the news in New Times online. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin filed a legal suit against the County of Maricopa demand a legal redress due to the infringement of their First Amendment Rights.
Their case prevailed finally and they were accorded compensation for the damage inflicted on them. The case was conducted and the verdict given in the ninth circuit by the Court of Appeals of the United States of America.
The Republican Carmen Cornejo has gained a good deal of support from the parties support the immigration laws. This is because he had the courage to be the only Republican from Arizona to oppose the anti-immigration that is issued by President.
The draconian Laws are only meant to infringe on the rights of the immigrant and they seem discriminatory in their implementation.
This will threaten the dream of the American “fathers” who declared that every human was equal and that each was born with fundamental and basic inalienable rights. Everyone was born equal in spite of their creed, social status or color.
Carmen Cornejo received solid support from The Arizona Employers for Immigration Reform. He noted that there were bureaucracies were imposed on the workers and the raids that were systematically conducted.
He viewed that as overstepping their mandate and then he decided to oppose the move taken by the president segregate people. He organized to meet with the Dreamers who always dreaded being in the open lest they were caught, arrested and repatriated to their countries of origin.
Cornejo converged with them and shared their stories and fears. He gave the hope of things becoming better in due course.
Cornejo accosted Flake who had come up with a bill that was geared toward making the dreams materialize. This is because the bill has some compromise on that which allows both parties to identify with the prevailing condition.
