Statement of Cardinal Blase J. Cupich on the Catholic National Call-in Day to Protect Dreamers

February 21, 2018

Last week, we watched the Senate fail to protect young immigrants affected by the uncertain future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which is set to end on March 5.

Given our heritage as an immigrant community, I urge the faithful across the Archdiocese to stand together in solidarity with our Dreamers and to join the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for a National Call-in Day for Dreamers, Monday, February 26. I invite you to call your members of Congress, and urge them to protect our young immigrant neighbors who want nothing more than to continue to contribute to the nation they call home.
