I am a very religious person who firmly believes in the spiritual life. I honestly think that religion, proper religion that is, can propel mankind forward so that they see a better world for everybody.
In order for this society to exist, we need to band together and stop other human beings who are committing acts of social injustice. Today, there is a great injustice happening against the Hispanic community. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/about/ and http://james-larkin.com/press/
I know that the heavenly father truly believes that these Hispanics are being mistreated and he wants his children here on earth to advocate for their basic human rights. These immigrants suffer from extremely low pay since bosses can pay them underneath the table.
They also deal with substandard education and they are not allowed medical benefits. All of this must stop. I understand that we need to take care of Americans first.
However, we live in the wealthiest nation that ever came into existence. There is more than enough here to provide everybody with the rights to live freely in this country.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are immigrant activists who consistently promote the idea that we can warmly welcome the Hispanic community into our great country. However, by publishing the stories of compassion, they have come against a man named Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Because Sheriff Joseph Arpaio believed that Hispanics should be shipped back to Mexico, he began advocating to shut down the media could Corporation that was owned by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. He wanted to punish them for owning the Village Voice Media and also to punish the 9 million readers who believe in immigration reform.
His efforts to shut down the paper legally were unsuccessful. In retaliation, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin began reporting how Sheriff Arpaio systematically persecuted the Hispanic community. They told true stories about how he allowed his security guards to routinely beat Hispanic men to the point they die because they were denied medical care.
They told true stories about how he strapped a pregnant woman to her jail cell when she went into labor. He refused to call a medical doctor to her side and as a result her baby died. If this was not disgusting enough, he then refused to grant her leave in order to attend the funeral of this child when no chance to succeed or enjoyed this life.

This publication made Arpaio even more angry. Since he could not shut down the media Corporation legally, he decided to bend the law. He gave false evidence to corrupt judges in order for them to write up a false warrant.
He then use that warrant to gain entry into the bald Lacey and Larkin’s home. Once he was there, he held them at gunpoint in order to scare them enough so that they would destroy their news articles.
This attempt also failed and in the and he was indicted on charges of were thinking his office and violating their great American right to freedom of speech.
