There is a war that is occurring between the 50 states that make up this great country of America. This is not a war fought with guns and the victory is not shown in the extension of borders. This is a war that is fought with words and ideas. Victory looks like love growing in the hearts of the American people.
The war I am discussing here is the war concerning immigration reform. There are two sides that are very passionate in their beliefs. On the one side you have those who advocate that we should allow anyone that wants to come into this country to enter without checking to see if they belong here.

Then on the other side you have people saying that no one should be allowed into this country and we only focus on our own.
In this war of ideas both sides seem to have some validity to them. However, I believe Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have the best all-around view when it comes to immigration reform.
They believe that America should not fully open the borders to allow people and because by doing so these people will not be successfully integrated into this great country.
However, by shutting our borders we forsake the American dream. They instead propose that we create a system in the government that allows for Hispanics to be moved safely from the moment of entry all the way to integration. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | LinkedIn
In order to pull this off the United States of America must agree to allow a set amount of Hispanics into the country. This includes planning how many will come over that are connected to their families both teams and extended. The next step is to build temporary homes which will house the Hispanic community during their time of transition.
Thirdly, America must then provide education so that the Hispanic immigrants coming in can learn the necessary trades, techniques, and skills to add to this country. Fourthly, there must be corporations who agree to hire Hispanic workers so that they can be fully integrated.
While Michael and Jim have been proposing this idea Sheriff Joseph Arpaio has attacked them. He decided that the best way to defeat this compassionate view was to increase hostility toward the group of Hispanics.
He has been solely responsible for increasing the beatings that occur in his prisons, the amount of the tensions in deportations based on racial profiling, and has even were Hispanic men to death as if he was running a blog.
He also wanted to stop Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin from informing the world of what he has done. This led him to break a multitude of laws and violate the First Amendment.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were detained and he refused to let these two men go until they destroyed all magazines that discussed his crimes and agreed to shut down the media Corporation they work for and owned together. This led to Joseph Arpaio’s arrest.
