Pax Christi USA signed on to an amicus brief in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The program’s very existence will be determined by the Supreme Court with oral arguments beginning November 12.

Until there is a moral and ethical pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, DACA is very important in ensuring the safety and well-being of immigrants who were brought to the US as children.

As we said in our statement against disassembling DACA in 2017, “PCUSA is committed to supporting DACA recipients and their families. We speak loudly and forcefully against the political tide of disrespect and continue to join with others until the DREAM Act becomes law. We pray that our government will not continue to break apart families, interrupt livelihoods, and take people from their homes. We need immigration policies that promote human flourishing, not suffering.”
