Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: Appealing to the President to Reverse the Pardon Granted to Joe Arpaio

Joe Arpaio recently announced his plans to run for the Senate, which was greatly opposed by Phoenix-based journalists and activists Michael and Jim.

According to them, Joe Arpaio does not deserve to be elected in the Senate, because of how he maltreated the migrants living in Maricopa County in Arizona. Serving as the county sheriff from 1992, Joe Arpaio enacted county-wide regulations that targeted people who are suspected of being undocumented and illegal immigrants.

His extreme measures in countering the rising problem of illegal immigration sparked protests all across the country, and he was accused of being a human rights violator.

Joe Arpaio was running for re-election as the county sheriff in 2016, but he failed to claim victory as his opponent had more votes than him, with the figures stating that he only got 45% of the votes. After he was stripped of his power, Joe Arpaio was plagued with hundreds of lawsuits, originating from the days when he served as the county sheriff.

In 2017, Joe Arpaio was arrested for contempt in court, and he was put behind bars. He was never threatened, stating that President Donald J. Trump will be pardoning him because they share the same belief. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were surprised after learning about the pardoning of Joe Arpaio.

They wanted to appeal to the president to reverse his decision, and according to the migrants’ rights activists, the former Maricopa County sheriff does not deserve any pardon because of how he treated the migrants living in Phoenix when he was in charge.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin believed that befriend President Donald J. Trump is one of the plans of Joe Arpaio to benefit from a Republican-dominated administration. He sensed that the man would win, and he gambled to show his loyalty to the president.

Earlier in the 2016 elections, Joe Arpaio has already campaigned for Donald J. Trump, and he was right in choosing the man as his president because the results in 2016 have shown that the Republican has won. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Michael Lacey | Twitter

Despite the accusations about his infamy, many conservative and nationalist Americans see Joe Arpaio as a hero, and the president wanted to show these people that he is still loyal to them by giving him pardon.

After Joe Arpaio went out of the prison, he immediately stated that he would be running for the Senate in the 2018 United States Midterm Elections. Vice President Mike Pence endorsed him, and he is confident that he will be winning the Senatorial elections, as he has a substantial number of supporters in Arizona.

Meanwhile, Michael and Jim are now working with their fellow activists to mobilize their groups and campaign against Joe Arpaio.

They believe that once the former sheriff of the Maricopa County will be elected in the Senate, he will do everything to eliminate the migrants working in the United States, and deporting millions of people back to their home countries in the South. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin believe that it would cost the United States billions of dollars, and would cripple the national economy.

Charity is held in high regard. Yes, the value of charity transcends cultures, religions, socioeconomic boundaries, and the world over. People all over recognize and appreciate the social utility in helping one another. A famous Jewish proverb says, “Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world.” Similarly, Muhammed said circa 620 CE that “A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world.” Aristotle, widely studied philosopher born 384 BC who is known as the “first teacher”, likewise taught that, “the essence of life is to serve others and do good” and Jeff Schneider, CEO and father, seeks to reflect to do the same in his own life. The famous, American businessman and car manufacturer, Henry Ford is documented saying, “The highest use of capital is not to make more money but to make money do more for the betterment of life.” It’s apparent that humans hold charity in high regard, but how many humans are actually acting on that notion? Jeff Schneider is.

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, “The volunteer rate declined by 0.4 percentage point to 24.9 percent for the year ending in September 2015.” Most people in the United States complete a majority of their community service in life for a high school or college requirement. After reaching the designated number of hours, people quit and go back to living their lives as they did before, but this is where Jeffry Schneider stands out in a crowd. He’s outstanding as he didn’t quit volunteering after it stopped being required of him. He integrated it into his routine and specifically continues to make time for it without having to. He volunteers his time at all kinds of charities including Austin Pets Alive!, the Gazelle Foundation, and LifeWorks.

Jeffry Schneider seeks out a variety of unconventional ways to give back and contribute to the bettering of the community. He tries to find fun and creative ways to contribute to society as a means of spiritual growth, happiness, and personal development. Mark Twain is quoted saying, “The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer somebody else up” which Jeff identifies with on a deep, personal level as Jeff Schneider’s mission is all about helping others. He volunteers his time at all kinds of charities including Wonders and Worries, the Gazelle Foundation, and the Cherokee Home for Children. He hopes that by doing so he improves the lives others while inspiring them to contribute to humanitarian efforts.
