Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Say Trump Is Heartless To End DACA

The ending of the DACA program is heartless, says Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, founders of the Frontera Fund.

In upholding his campaign promise, President Trump ended the DACA program that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who grew up in the United States. An unwise decision that especially will hurt the country, says Larkin and Lacey.

Just days before his decision, President Trump had told news sources that “I have a big heart, so dreamers should not be too worried,” so this about face came as a bit of a shock.

Trump could have listened to the advice of business and political leaders of both parties. They had insisted not to stop Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) because the country benefits economically from the program.

The DACA program guarantees a right to remain in the US for young people whose parents are illegal and brought their kids to the US. It ensures that they can be official members of society in the only place they call home.

More than 800,000 dreamers are not at risk of deportation, unless Congress finds a solution. President Obama enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in June 2012. Read more; Michael Lacey | Twitter

As of March, 2017, US Citizenship and Immigration Services say the United States has about 800,000 registered DACA residents. According to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, advocates of immigration like the Frontera Fund will continue to protests for the rights of dreamers. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael:

The DACA program is set to expire on March 5, the 2018. Until then, President Trump has handed the issue over to Congress, telling them to find a solution.

According to Lacey and Larkin, this move is just a way for Trump to keep his campaign promise while placing the issue in the laps of others. New applications for the program are no longer being accepted, but up until October 5, 2018, current dreamers are able to extend their two-year work permit.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin both say this program has a positive impact on the hundreds of thousands who came into the US as children of illegal immigrants, but also to the US economy. Larkin and Lacey also express concern about a significant increase of upcoming arrests and deportations.

Established in 2014, the Frontera Fund helps to promote equality and justice for immigrants. Founders, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are dedicated to exposing injustice and advocating to support the rights of migrants, and immigrants.

James Larkin; Irish Labor Leader

James Larkin was born on 28th January 1874 in Liverpool, England as the 2nd born son of Irish immigrants, James Larking and Mary Ann McNulty. James lived in Liverpool’s slum was brought up poor, due to their state.

He worked from the early age of seven to supplement the family’s income. His father passed away when he was only fourteen years and had to drop out of school and become the family’s bread winner.

By 1903 he had become a foreman and worked at the docks. It is at this time he saw how his fellow workers were treated so inhumanly. He developed a deep interest in socialism. In 1905 he was one in a few foremen who took part in a formal strike. The strike ended up costing him his job at the docks. Learn more about Jim Larkin:

However, as luck would have it National Union of Dock Laborers (NUDL) were so impressed by him that they offered him a post in the union as a temporary organizer which later led to him getting a full-time position with the union.

Jim was very successful in reeling up workers all over Ireland in 1907. It is here that in 1910 he was expelled from the union as an official and formally prosecuted for allegedly misappropriating the union’s funds. He was sentenced to 1 year in prison but only served three months after Lord-Lieutenant, Lord Aberdeen pardoned him.

Though down he certainly was not out; he started Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union (ITGWU) in 1908 which still exists up to date under the name Services Industrial Professional & Technical Union (SIPTU). He settled in Dublin making it the main base for the union.

His most infamous achievement occurred in early 1913 where he staged a strike that involved a hundred thousand workers and ended up lasting for more than seven months. It is during this momentous occasion that he coined his most known phrase, “A fair day’s work for an honest day’s pay.” Read more: Jim Larkin – Biography and Jim Larkin | Wikipedia

He, later on, shifted to the United States where he tried to raise money to fight off the British during World War I, which he opposed. He was later arrested and convicted of anarchy and communism in 1920. James served three years of his sentence and was deported to Ireland, where he organized the Workers Union of Ireland.

It was for his efforts that the Communist International in 1924 recognized him. James had married Elizabeth Brown in 1913 and were both blessed with four sons. He died on January, 30th 1947 and was buried in Ireland, his parents’ home country.
