Dreamer Talk: How Immigration Policy Impacts Real Immigrants

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals would end. DACA will be phased out over a period of six months. You are invited to come hear the details and how this decision impacts 800,000 people currently in the United States.

Archbishop Schnurr writes:

“The U.S. Catholic Church is deeply concerned by the many years of failure by Congress, whether controlled by Democrats or by Republicans, to address the plight of immigrants who were brought to the United States when they were young and who have no pathway to regularize their status. Started in 2012, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which the Trump Administration has announced will end by March 2018, has protected hundreds of thousands of young people from deportation. In our Archdiocese, many DACA youth worship in our parishes, attend our schools, and contribute to our communities. We urge Congress to provide a path to permanent residency for these young immigrants by passing the DREAM Act or similar legislation.”
