Bishop Kemme's Support For Dreamers /EL APOYO DEL SR. OBISPO PARA “LOS DREAMERS”

President Trump’s decision to end the DACA program is a matter of serious concern. The immigrants protected from deportation by the DACA program came to this country as children, some at such a young age that America is the only home they have ever known. “Dreamers” live and work among us as contributing members of society. While DACA was never a permanent solution, it did provide as many as 800,000 people with a measure of relief from the constant fear of deportation.

As bishop, I stand in solidarity with the "Dreamers" and call upon Congress to pass permanent protections on their behalf. I do so with the recognition that immigration has become one of the most contentious issues in American politics. While consensus on many aspects of immigration policy remains elusive, it is my hope that people of different perspectives on immigration can agree that immigrants brought to America as children should not be deported and sent back to a place they may have no memory of. Only a law passed by Congress can bring a definitive resolution to the plight of these individuals.

I ask our people to join me in prayer that such a resolution is forthcoming and to ask Kansas’ congressional delegation to work with other lawmakers and the Trump Administration in fashioning a policy for "Dreamers" that upholds America’s highest ideals as a beacon of welcome to immigrants.
