The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart are compelled to express publicly our deep disappointment in President Trump’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
We stand in solidarity with all those thousands of other people who see this act as completely lacking in compassion and respect for the dignity of the human person. It flies in the face of all that is good and sacred, of everything that has already made America great!
A nation that can reject fellow human beings who seek the same things that we seek is no longer on the road to greatness.
We pray that as a nation of immigrants, we will see the beauty of and our genuine need for diversity. Therein, only, lies our true greatness.
We call on Congress to immediately take up and pass the Bipartisan Dream Act of 2017.
