The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was established a few years ago by the Phoenix-based journalists Micheal Lacey and Jim Larkin.
The Frontera Fund has been funding and helping organizations and groups to promote and protects the human rights of minorities such as immigrants, refugees, LGBT members. The organizations that the Frontera Fund has been supporting also provide undocumented individuals with legal representation, medical attention, and more.
The Frontera Fund has been supporting the organization of DACA since Lacey and Larkin established it. Earlier this year it was made clear that DACA will no longer be in operation. The devastating news sent a wave of horror through more than 800 000 people across the United States of America as there are nearly one million immigrants under the protection of DACA.
The organization of DACA has been carrying great importance both for immigrants and for the United States. The youth under the protection of DACA has been able to live in the United States to study and work in the country.
At the same time, the United States of America has been benefitting significantly from the presence of the youths. The extra million people working in the country has been bringing down the unemployment rate, and thus they have been increasing the GDP of the United States by a few billion every year.
DACA will not be around anymore because Trump decided that the United States should be ”purged” of immigrants, as he put it. He stopped DACA from operating and now nearly one million people are losing their jobs, their education, and their lives in the United States. They are facing imminent deportation as Trump refused to provide any chance to those to keep their lives in the United States. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Angel.co
As a result, the states are loosing so much money that Trump single handedly has created a new economic crisis that has began. According to experts, the prognosis is rather grim. Th United States will lose more than $400 billion the next ten years all because Trump wanted to remove immigrants from his country.
Another enormous problem that the United States is facing is in the education sector. Most of DACA youth was training to become teachers. The United States has been facing a significant shortage of teachers over the past year, or so, we are talking tens of thousands of teachers short across the states.
The teaching staff has been leaving their jobs because the government does not invest money into the profession.
