Immigration Subcommittee

DACA Action Alert from U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Approximately 800,000 young people face the loss of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protections, which include work authorization and protection from deportation. These are young people who came as children, some so young that the US is the only home that they remember. Pope Francis has called on us to pray and provide support for our brothers and sisters who are migrants and refugees through the historic Share the Journey campaign. Heed his call by speaking out on behalf of young people in our communities who are facing an uncertain future because of the Administration’s recent decision to end the DACA program.
