Statement on the Elimination of Deferred Action (DACA)

En Español

We deeply regret the President’s decision to rescind the DACA program and initiate steps to end the program without any replacement.  Catholic Charities remains steadfast in our solidarity with the 800,000 “Dreamers,” who face even more uncertainty and threat.  We recognize the  six month wind down period provides an imperative for us to act quickly.  We urgently call upon the President to support and Congress to promptly pass legislation that will protect and provide opportunities for these “Dreamers.”  We will work with any and all to achieve this goal. 

- Monsignor Kevin Sullivan
