Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey have voiced their concern about the pardon of the former sheriff of Maricopa County named Joe Arpaio.
The news about the pardon of the sheriff by President Trump angered them as they knew the man so well and were certain that he did not deserve to be pardoned, the crimes he committed were too many and of great magnitude that they needed to be dealt with in the right manner which was sentencing.
Larkin and Lacey have now decided to voice their concerns to the people about the pardon. They have opposed it and will continue opposing it. The former sheriff committed crimes which deserve to be punished, and they can only sit pretty once they know the sheriff is in custody. Although the pardon by President Trump is final, they still think that there are opportunities for the sheriff to be taken back to the courts.
Lacey and Larkin have voiced their concerns of the immigrant’s community living in the country who were being discriminated by rogue officials such as Joe Arpaio. They maintain that the immigrants have a right to live in the county without being asked by anyone.
The law allows any human being to live in the country without being harassed. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey will continue asking the government to obey the rights of the immigrants. They deserve to live the same life as other people in the country.
The pardon by President Trump was seen as unusual as presidents do not make controversial pardons at the beginning of their terms. President Trump has the controversial pardon less than a year after he took office.
It looked like it was a pre-planned affair since the two had already worked together in promoting the birther movement which was behind the demand for Former President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase
Other presidents preferred to make such decisions towards the end of their terms but not for Trump, who in any case is not new to controversy. His term in office has been full of drama and first-time actions. Arpaio and Trump believe that the country should tighten the immigration laws since they feel that immigrant are the cause of all the problems facing the country.
They are concerned that if the country continues allowing immigrants to be entering the country with ease, there will be repercussions which will not be good. They have recommended discriminating and torturing the immigrants as the solution to stopping immigration.
Lacey and Larkin who have suffered in the hands of the former sheriff are concerned that the country is slowly sliding into a situation where there is an almost total shutdown of immigration. President Trump is making it hard for anyone in the country to enjoy life as long as they know they are from his preferred race.
He has shown clearly that he is a racist who will treat the people depending on their color. His sentiments regarding the Latinos and building of the wall are indicators of intolerance.
