America caused a lot of countries to become dangerous hell-holes. All of this wealth and cleanliness that we have in the United State of America is the result of a complex history of dirty dealings and conflicts abroad.
America has a long history of meddling in the politics of foreign countries, replacing foreign leaders with puppet governments, having business interests in other countries and exploiting the citizens of other countries as labor.
The most gross example is United Fruit. United Fruit was a banana company that existed in Guatemala. They owned 42% of the land there. United Fruit owned Guatemala’s telegraph and telephone systems. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
When leaders in Guatemala attempted to threaten United Fruit’s iron fist over Guatemala, the company put out propaganda against Guatemala in the United States, condemning them as “communists.” The leader of Guatemala, Arbenz, was forced to resign.
The United States CIA installed a military dictator into the leadership and called him a “liberator.” This is the kind of stuff that really screwed up Latin American countries that immigrants are now coming from.
America, and other countries like America, have put tight reigns on less powerful countries, and have confined less powerful countries to only exporting out one or a few raw goods while the world powers force them to buy expensive finished goods. The people who work on Wall Street seem pretty suspicious when it comes to this whole situation.

Now, there are immigrants walking through the desert, trying to reach the nearest place where they can receive water, food, shelter and work. Some people die on the way over, because the Mexican-American border is located in a desert.
Once immigrants find work, the fight is not over. A lot of undocumented immigrants are abused by their employers, and do not report these abuses for fear of being deported back to their countries after all of the trouble that they went though to come here. It is a glorious sight to seen an immigrant who has come from nothing build themselves up and find their place in American society.
Jim Lacey and Michael Larkin are educated about this whole series of events in history, and the current conditions that affect people who decide to cross the border. To protect these people, they created the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund to take part in correcting the social, political and economic wrongs that have been imposed on the countries of people who are coming over here illegally.
Important Stories That Lacey And Larkin Are Tied Closely To
Front Page Confidential is a relatively fresh digital news media publication that largely contains coverage and opinions of current events, others’ opinions, and important matters related to the freedom of speech, press, and religious preference and practice.
The site was founded by Village Voice Media, the 1970 creation of Michael Lacey and James “Jim” Larkin, less than a year ago, in September 2017. Larking and Lacey are actively involved in deciding the overarching direction of the publication, its writers, and advertising and marketing decisions, though is the chief editor is Tom Finkel, a long-tenured veteran of the world of journalism.
Lacey and Larkin’s link to John McCain
Not too long ago, Front Page Confidential ran a lengthy story totaling a word count in the tens of thousands that chronicled the bad deeds John McCain has acted out throughout his lifetime.
Larkin and Lacey ordered the publication of the article because they firmly believed – and still do believe – that what Senator John McCain stood for was against the best interest of the constituents he has served for decades in the state of Arizona.
About the civic-minded, justice-seeking Frontera Fund
To keep a long, twisted story relatively short, Lacey and Larkin won a settlement of $3.75 million from Maricopa County, Arizona, a few years ago. They decided, instead of keeping the money for themselves, to dole it out to people who have their rights violated in the United States to those who either can’t afford it or have tough cases that desperately need assistance to have the objective dish of justice served as soon as possible.
The Frontera Fund is the name of the nonprofit entity that takes care of the aforementioned objectives and responsibilities. Lacey and Larkin alike are both involved in monitoring its operations, as well.
