National Faith Leader Applauds Supreme Court’s DACA Decision

Washington, D.C. — The Supreme Court struck down the Trump administration’s immoral termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program protecting young immigrants from deportation.

Rev. Jennifer Butler, CEO of Faith in Public Life:
“I’m grateful that the Supreme Court recognized the human dignity of DACA recipients by striking down President Trump’s cruel and racist termination of DACA. Young immigrant activists led the way in this fight, and millions of people of faith nationwide followed. Together, we rejoice.

We still have much work to do in defense of immigrant families. Now Congress must pass permanent protections that honor the dignity of every immigrant in this country. People of faith will continue working and praying to ensure that all God’s children are respected and protected.”
