Recently, the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund released news that a few federal prosecutors are reopening more than 1,300 cases of immigrants who were sent back to their homes or arrested under Donald Trump’s orders as the U.S. President. These deportation cases are being reconsidered because of some federal law enforcers who believe that Trump’s exaggerated deportation spree would be harmful to the country’s future.
Different from Ex-President Obama’s policy for immigrants, Donald Trump was not saving any immigrant that was illegal, while the last President was even allowing immigrants who were already a few years in the country to stay there if they were not posing any sign of threat to the American nation.

Becuase of Trump’s policy, many families are split in half, while women and children are allowed to stay in the country and men are sent back to their respective homelands, many immigrants become really poor individuals, which is also detrimental to the nation’s future.
The cases are being reopened, and this seems to be great news for everyone involved or not, as the United States will only get prejudice from not allowing these people from entering the country.
Now, Lacey & Larkey are acting with their entire potential, funding migrants’ rights lawyers who are helping analyze these cases with the federal court. With the Frontera Fund’s support, professionals in the legal area are optimistic about the future of the nation.
