Lenten Action for Dreamers
As you know, Congress has been attempting to address the issue of the dreamers during the past week and has failed to pass meaningful legislation. Within a matter of days, these young people who grew up in our parishes and attended our schools will be facing grave legal jeopardy. A failure of legislation to help the Dreamers in the Senate would likely lead to a moment where the bishops of the United States organized a nation-wide effort to generate support for legal protections for these immigrants who have never knowingly violated our law.
This moment has come. The Bishops of the United States are asking the Catholic community to call their Congressional representatives next Monday, February 26th and register their support for bipartisan legislation to protect the young women and men who will soon lose their legal status and their legal right to work in our nation.
