”As religious women committed to the Gospel, we the Sisters of the Divine Compassion stand in solidarity with other religious congregations and with our brother bishops, the United States Catholic Conference, in support of the Dream Act of 2017 (Senate proposal 1615), namely the continuation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The words of the Gospel, “I was a stranger and you took me in…” echo in our hearts as we support this legislation. We believe that the immigrant young people in our midst, close to 800,000, should be protected and able to live without fear of deportation to a country they do not know and separation from their families. We support the intent of DACA that these young people, also called DREAMERS, have the opportunity to become educated, distinguished citizens, and to contribute their gifts and talents in service to the community, as many of them have already done.
