Frontera traces its roots from October 2007, when the county sheriff of Maricopa County, through his Selective Enforcement unit, decided to arrest and detain Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin. Joe Arpaio decided to halt the two young journalists for allegations that they had written some provocative ideas about the government through their Phoenix New Times newspaper. They had exposed the evils that mar the leadership of Joe Arpaio like misuse of funds as well as the abuse of office that was rampant in the Joe Arpaio regime. However, in its determination of their case did not take long. The judge at the courts decided that there was no crime committed by the two journalists hence making them be released for free.
Upon the declaration by the courts that they did not have a case to answer. These men were set free and paid 3.7 million within 24 hours. Frontera Fund is active up to now, and it deals with the provision of basic needs to the less fortunate in the USA. Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin played their part in the arrest, but they successfully utilized the money from donors to change the lifestyles of the Luos.
