Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is set to expire on March 5th. In response to this deadline, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has called for a National Call-In Day for the Protection of Dreamers on February 26th. Communities are encouraged to contact your members of Congress by calling (855) 589-5698 and visiting Justice for Immigrants for additional resources.
In the Diocese of Brooklyn, advocates welcome the call of the U.S. Bishop’s to:
- Protect Dreamers from deportation
- Provide them with a path to citizenship
- Avoid any damage to existing protections for families and unaccompanied minors in the process
