With technology transforming the world into one large market, people are traveling every day to live in different countries. This is in search of employment and survival. To some immigrants, the political and civil status left them with no choice but migrate.
Unfortunately, most countries have policies that make the life of immigrants very difficult. Most of the immigrants, cannot practice democratic rights or participate in any decision making of the country. In the worst scenario, they are denied the most basic needs. As a result, many philanthropist groups have been formed to improve the lives of the immigrants. Some of this humanitarian groups include;

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been known for fighting for their rights in most times of their career. The two published the evil acts of the Sherriff. On learning this, the sheriff arrested the two journalists from their homes at 12midnight.
The public held demonstrations, demanding their release. Lacey and Larkin were, therefore, released in less than 24 hours. Ongoing to court, the arrest was considered illegal. The two received a compensation of $3.75 million.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin used the money in financing the humanitarian groups of Arizona. Currently, the organization’s project is on the DACA foundation.
DACA foundation was formed to take care of immigrants who are in the state illegally. The organization has 800000 beneficiaries.

Its close down would cause severe damage to the big number of beneficiaries. The members are worried, especially, after Kelly made his announcement. He said that despite the efforts the staff was putting on the matter, the organization was still unstable.
The Frontera Fund has promised to ensure that the DACA issue finds a permanent solution. This has restored the hope of the members.
The Arizona settlers are very angry at the action taken by the AG. They have described the action as ungrateful and malicious.
The Arizona occupants, explain that the immigrants have also contributed to the well-being of the state. Deportation is, therefore, a mean way to pay back the immigrants.
