Pass the Dream Act

Dear Members of Congress,

In March, President Donald Trump will end DACA, putting hundreds of thousands of young people at risk of deportation. They came here as young children and would be deported to countries they know little of. This is profane and unjust, and Congress has a chance to change this reality before the New Year by passing the Dream Act.

Pope Francis's words to Congress in 2015 ring in our ears: "We need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves troublesome. Let us remember the Golden Rule: 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'"

To this end, we believe that deporting exemplary young people who were brought here as children and who know only the United States as their home – or failing to do all we can to help refugees and their families, who are often driven to exile by war and extreme exploitation – is not in our interests as a moral and generous people.

As people of faith, we urge you to pass the Dream Act now.

    It is time for working together and compassion, not divisiveness and cruelty.
