The Tent City of Mr. Arpaio and his several orders against inmates and women holding their status as the immigrants were severally brought up by various publications.

Since Arpaio took a position in the office, there have been a lot of cases where he was informed what was legally right and what was wrong. Without the available evidence showing if the detainee had proper status or not, holding such a person was against the constitutional law.

Such instances were addressed in private before 2011. Finally, they were all over when a lawsuit was filed against Joe Arpaio around ten years ago. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey began exposing Joe Arpaio to the American public. They wrote much about multiple instances of Arpaio and butted heads on many occasions against the department.

The suit exposed a lot of information that concerned the malpractices and corruption of Joe Arpaio, and it was settled for $ 3.7 million. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey operate one of the largest organizations nowadays.

Lacey and Larkin utilized the cash for the settlement and the time given to the time given to them when they retired to create the Frontera Fund. Frontera Fund is a group that usually helps Latinos and other society members to protect their first Amendments.

Once again, The Chainsmokers make the news after a recent interview with Alex Pall. After only two years, the DJ/Producer Duo has become one of the most successful in the world. Since the release of their top 10 song Roses in 2015, they have consistently proven to be the experts of the Pop EDM world. They have won 24 awards at several awards ceremonies, including a Grammy in 2017 for Best Dance Recording.

After not releasing anything new in the 8 months between the lyric video release of Young in June of 2017, The Chainsmokers have come back with a new sound that is darker and more of a reflection on society than ever before, with their new song Sick Boy. It’s lyrics about the effect of social media on their lives is chilling, but their openness about who they are is refreshing.

If you have never heard of The Chainsmokers, or haven’t closely followed them, they first broke into the limelight with the song Roses two years ago. A year later, they released Dont Let Me Down, which hit number 3 in the US. That same year, they released the #1 hit song Closer, showing the world that they are the hit-makers.

This has all culminated to their new album, which currently has no release date. But so far, the duo has released four songs from the album which have gotten over a quarter billion views together in less than 5 months. Sick Boy alone has gotten 175 million views, and speaks to the younger generation, who have become trapped in a social media run world. The song speaks truth about how narcissistic and negative we have become in our life hiding behind a screen, and is a refreshing breath of relief among songs that beg for more fame, or that complain about how hard it is to be rich and popular. The Chainsmokers have hit a balance between upbeat dance songs, and a close look at society, and plan to develop this sound further in their upcoming album.
