LCWR Urges Action to Support Dreamers

In the spirit of our Congregational Statement, Welcome Immigrants and Refugees, we stand in solidarity with Dreamers and stand with the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in their statement urging Congress to pass the bipartisan Dream Act 2017.

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) shares the disappointment of millions of people across the country who had hoped and prayed that President Trump would continue the protection offered Dreamers by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA is a common sense path to stability for families, communities, and local economies and a reaffirmation of American values. Ending DACA will cause irreparable harm to families and communities and force 800,000 of our young people back into the shadows.

In the wake of this unconscionable action by President Trump, we urge Congress to immediately take up and pass the bipartisan Dream Act of 2017.
