Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund’s support of DACA

Members of the Republican party have been pushing for the end of a very important program protecting thousands of young immigrants in the United States. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has been under extreme pressure to come to an end by those who oppose it. Ken Paxton, Texas’s Attorney General, along with 9 other red state attorney generals addressed a letter to Donald Trump pressuring him to end the program, which he promised he would end during his presidential campaign. In the letter, Paxton gives Trump a September 5, 2017, deadline to end the program, threatening to take legal action against Trump and his administration if he doesn’t.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a program created in 2012 by President Obama which protects those brought to the U.S illegally as children from being deported. The program’s protection is issued for two year periods and has to be renewed at the end of the time period. There are a series of qualifications to be eligible for protection, such as, currently enrolled in school, no felonies or significant misdemeanors, and under the age of 31. The program allows recipients to receive a work permit and social security cards allowing them to be productive members of society. Through the program, thousands of individuals have been able to start businesses, apply for college, and buy cars and homes providing billions of dollars to our country’s economy.

Many of those who receive DACA protection were brought here as young children and have no memory of their original birthplace. As a result, all they know and have is here in the United States. Therefore, by ending the program would not only be devastating to the innocent people but would also be an extreme detriment to the economy.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund supports the continuing of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The Lacey and Larkin fund was started in 2007 after an illegal arrest and detainment of Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin by the Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office. As a result of their illegal arrest, the two were rewarded a $3.7 million dollar settlement at the end of a long court battle between the two and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Mike and Jim used their reward to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The fund helps those of the Hispanic community who are constant victims of civil rights violations and discrimination.

The Lacey and Larkin fund has shown strong support of the DACA program started by the Obama Administration 5 years ago and will help in the fight to keep the program. All for the hope of one day having possible a DREAM act passed legislation providing DREAMers with the opportunity to become permanent citizens.

The New Acquisition By Goettl Air Conditioning

The acquisition of Walton’s Heating and Air by Goettl Air Conditioning has recently been announced. Walton’s Heating and Air is based in southern California. It is a family owned HVAC business. The financial details are yet to be disclosed about this deal.

Post this acquisition, Goettl Air Conditioning will be able to extend its operations in California too. Presently it is based in Phoenix, besides Tucson, as well as Las Vegas. Even Walton’s will be able to grow and expand. It could not have managed this on its own. Hence this acquisition will be benefitting both the companies.

Walton’s had become stagnant as the family-owned business was not able to expand any further under its present ownership. It was in 2015 that Goettl Air Conditioning had shown interest in acquiring this company. At that time, its owners were reluctant. However, they were convinced as they got positive vibes from others in the HVAC industry about Goettl Air Conditioning and its owner, Ken Goodrich. Hence Longbrake, the owner of Walton’s decided to go for it.

This acquisition finalized in 2015 itself. Longbrake is happy as his company has grown ten times since the acquisition. Now he is working as the sales manager as well as field supervisor after this acquisition. He has adjusted to the company culture really well. He is a leader for the entire organization.

Even though this deal had been finalized long ago, the announcement has come only now. This was due to several operational issues in Walton’s beside a number of marketing complications too.

Hence all this had to be put in place before the takeover by Goettl Air Conditioning. All this was managed before making the announcement about the acquisition.

The reason behind the smooth acquisition is stated to be the similarity in the family background as well as values of the two companies. Walton’s was able to provide a platform where Goettl Air Conditioning could grow.

Due to this acquisition, Goettl Air Conditioning currently has 306 employees. There is a projection of 200 new jobs that will be created. These will be mainly in Tucson as well as Phoenix, as they are the largest markets for the company.

In this way, Goettl Air Conditioning will soon become a nationwide brand. By 2018, the company will be expanding into northern California. This will soon be followed by entering into Texas. Hence the growth plans have been charted out.

The Visionary Leaders Of The Ubuntu Fund, Including Andrew Rolfe, Focuses On Needy Children

The founders of the Ubuntu Fund incorporated the institution for purposes of assisting disadvantaged children in the society. Since 1999, the Fund has used its resources to help more than 400,000 needy children. Owing to the large number of less fortunate families in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the founders of the organization deemed it fit to establish a school in the locality. Initially, the school campus provided the children with education. However, the enrollment and children performance in class did not impress the leaders of the Fund. To this end, they decided to undertake a research to unearth the reasons thereof. The studies showed that HIV/AIDs epidemic and hunger were making many children not to realize their potentials in school. The management of the Fund moved with speed and started offering nutrition and catering for their healthcare needs.

The institution has a sound program that seeks to support needy students once they join the campus until they finish their studies and start their careers. In the spirit of helping more needy students, the management organized a gala dinner in London. 300 guests attended the invitation-only event. The management of the Fund had set a target of £600,000. The gala dinner lasted the entire night. The leadership of the organization posited that they were able to raise more than £603,000.

This fund shall be used to expand the school’s infrastructure, including the development of a modern pediatric clinic. This facility will ensure that the children lead a healthy life. The rest of the money shall be expended on providing more needy children with education and basic needs.

Money and More

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know all about helping migrants make money through the Frontera Fund. They also know the value of human rights, collectively. Frontera leads the way. Frontera has raised plenty of money toward the good cause and hopes to raise some more next month and beyond.

Migrants often don’t come from money, and that’s a sad fact we forget most of the time. These people usually flee their past countries to learn something new and make enough money just to eat and drink. Most of their countries’ labor laws are so strict and misunderstood that they are not even thought of in the U.S. Read more: Michael Larcey | Facebook

For instance, many laborers in the Mexico, even those with the most experience and the highest salaries altogether, tend to barely enough to cover one meal a day – and that’s usually only for one person. Imagine the sacrifice that many of these people must make just to survive, much less thrive and advance with their lives: The reality is quite brutal, then, is it not?

A decent wage laborer in Mexico City may earn the equivalent of $7 USD in one full day’s work, which is almost enough to buy a Pepsi and a small plate of food that day. Some top salaried positions in Venezuela, for instance, pay what is equal to $40 USD a month.

No one in their right mind can possibly budget such a small amount and support a family in this way; think about it. Thus, risking it all to move to the U.S. in considerably the best option: These migrants know that, when they are there, things will most certainly begin to look up.

Getting into the U.S. is the hard part; since many cannot afford so much as a plane ticket, they attempt to cross over illegally and are caught and deported 9 times out of 10. Once they escape their country’s return deportation or are released, they feel there is nothing to lose and try to enter the U.S. again.

Some are successful after several tries, and that is where illegal immigrants come from; their story is one of much sweat, tears, bloodshed, and loss altogether – but still one we can learn much from.

Once they finally enter the U.S., they make every attempt to hold onto every bit of money they have while trying to get a job. Illegal immigrants are very limited on the jobs that they can get, not to mention that these are even scarcer for those who do not speak the local country’s language:

Nonetheless, they put their best feet forward and work hard within a niche, eventually moving up and showing their employers what it means to have a disciplined, dedicated and intelligent worker at their side whenever they need one. In this regard, they also hope to remain in good standing with the company and with the country as a greater whole. They make every effort to keep their nationality in good standing in the country.
