America is a lovely place. It’s safe, for the most part. Well, how safe America is for you depends a lot on what neighborhood you live in and where you live. However when people come here from other countries, they are glad to be here and generally believe that they are a lot safer here than their own countries—which are many times completely overrun with violence, gangs and war.

People do anything that they can to get here: they float on dinghys, trek through deserts, pack themselves into odd parts of random vehicles and trust shady strangers who promise to smuggle them into the good ol’ US of A. People are really taking a risk when they do this, because people commonly die as they are being smuggled into countries.

People in the desert die from thirst and starvation. People who pack themselves into random vehicles to be transported into the United States sometimes suffer from suffocation. Dinghies and boats sink, leading the occupants to a fate of drowning.

Once people get here, they have to figure out how they are going to start new lives for themselves and keep under the radar. New immigrants are subjected to all kinds of misfortune once they survive the trip here.

For example, many immigrants who have just come here are walking around with their life savings, which they get robbed for by people already living in America, and perhaps other immigrants, who are wise to their situations. Sometimes immigrants are picked out and robbed by authorities.

Even people who are American citizens are robbed by authorities if they have large sums of money with them. As immigrants find work, they are sorely taken advantage of by abusive employers. On top of it, many immigrants, especially non-white immigrants, are subject to certain stereotypes and judgments.

These are common facts that are known to enlightened human beings like Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. These make up the plethora of reasons for why both men have put heads together to form the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, a company that give money to other charitable companies for the sake of the immigrants.

It saw its beginnings in 2013, following a giant, larger-than-life settlement awarded to the gentlemen for an inappropriate, humiliating experience that they were subjected to at the hands of the county that they resided in.

NAMBLA

Anybody who is told about this organization will probably automatically stick his or her nose up at it. The name stands for North American Man/Boy Love Association. Its members are proud, self-proclaimed pedophiles, which would shock run of the mill citizens.  Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

The word pedophile has such a bad connotation that some people may scratch their heads over why exactly anybody would come out and proudly say that they are a pedophile. There is such a bad stigma attached to the label “pedophile” that in prisons convicted pedophiles get treated even more harshly by inmates than murderers.
