What Frontera Fund is doing to support DACA

The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program has lately come under a string of attacks from President Donald Trump and the Republicans, who have shown every willingness to disband or water down the program. According to Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, the program was ostensibly established to offer undocumented youths the opportunity to live, work and school in the US. Besides getting a reprieve from deportation, beneficiaries of the program receive social security number, and a chance to work. In some states, DACA recipients receive access to college tuition and the opportunity to apply for a driver’s license. It is slightly over 5 years since the program came into being, and its benefits have been far reaching for both dreamers and the host communities.


Statistics indicate that as much 95% of all DACA beneficiaries study, work or do both. The contributions made by the recipients towards the US University and college education system run into millions of dollars. The same effects are felt in the areas the beneficiaries reside, since many have established new businesses that never existed and purchased homes and cars. The latest push to admonish DACA began when Ken Paxton, the Texas attorney General wrote a letter to the Trump administration requesting that DACA be rescinded. In his plea, Ken threatened more actions if the request is not approved by September 5, 2017. In his support, one governor and 9 States Attorney Generals in Republican appended their signatures. News of the plans to imperil DACA send chills all across the nation.


In its response, an influential Hispanic group called Hispanic Caucus held a closed door meeting with the Secretary of Homeland Security, John Kelly to lament over the decision, which if implemented would jeopardize the lives of over 800,000 DACA recipients. For those who hope to apply for the program, an elaborate application appears on the UCLA Berkeley website. The list of documents needed for initial application are School ID, birth certificate, Consular ID and Passport. The beneficiaries must also conform whether they were physically present in the US as of July 2th, 2012. Several organizations and funds have been established to assist immigrant family’s lead better lives in the US. The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund is one such program.


The fund was established to support civil rights groups vouching for the rights of immigrants living in Arizona. The founders of the fund are two seasoned newsmen and former co-owners of the New Phoenix Times, Mr. Jim Larkin and Mr. Michael Lacey. The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund also regularly cover news reports concerning DACA, immigrant welfare, state and national government policy directives on immigrants and other trending issues. Making its latest pronouncement on DACA, the Supreme Court denied Trump administration officials the opportunity to challenge DACA. The move left an earlier decision made by the lower Courts to stand, albeit temporarily. In a recent DACA installation published on August 2, 2017 the Frontera Fund website discusses the critical processes and guidelines for DACA consideration.

Securus Technologies: Charting The Course In Innovative Security Solutions

Innovation is one of the most important aspects that determine the success of a business in the long run. When we hear the term innovation, we immediately think of new inventions and products, but innovation can be as simple as just finding a new way to do something that is already being done.

Innovation is usually the result of creativity and a lot of hard work. An idea in business is considered innovative if it satisfies a need, and can do so without incurring too much expenditure.

Securus Technologies is arguably the most successful and reliable provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions. The company provides powerful and affordable technology solutions to numerous prisons and public safety agencies across the country.

The company’s success can be directly attributed to its focus on innovation. The company hires the best designers, engineers, and thinkers, all of whom are tasked with creating new solutions to emerging problems. This has enabled the company always to stay miles ahead of the competition.


Anti-drone Technology

Inmates in correctional facilities are becoming increasingly inventive when it comes to ways of smuggling in contraband. A few years ago, the only way that an inmate could get contraband was if a visitor brought it in, so all the prison guards had to do was conduct a proper search on anyone entering the premises.

Nowadays it is not so simple. The inmates are hiring people on the outside to airlift contraband into the prisons using drones. Drones are too small to spot with the naked eye easily. Making these drops at night in the dark means the guards have no chance of intercepting the deliveries.

Some of the items being smuggled into prisons pose a serious security threat to both prison personnel as well as to the other inmates.

Securus Technologies has stepped in to help the authorities deal with this problem. The company is developing new anti-drone technology that will enable guards to detect drones no matter how small and stealth they may be.

Over the course of the past eighteen months, the company has been using its many partnerships with other technology companies to perform a thorough evaluation of available anti-drone technology.

Securus Technologies clinched three awards at the 2018 edition of the prestigious Stevie Awards for sales and customer service. There were more than two thousand nominations from companies all over the United States and abroad, covering every industry.
