Missouri Bishops Call for New DACA Program

The Missouri Catholic Bishops are calling for Congressional action to pass a new DACA law. In a joint statement issued this week, the Bishops said that:  “To send these young people back to the country of their parent’s origin would not represent the spirit of compassion and welcoming for which our country is so justly revered around the world, nor would such deportations reflect our Judeo-Christian teachings which calls upon us to welcome the stranger as our brother and sister.”

You can encourage Congress to act on DACA.  Read and respond to this USCCB Alert.
