Protecting Young Immigrants - An Ignatian Outreach

The Ignatian Solidarity Network and the Jesuit Conference have been working with Faith in Public Life to create a way for educators in the Jesuit/Ignatian network to show their support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA, an immigration policy founded by the Obama administration in 2012) as it comes under attack by state governors and attorney generals. 

Jesuit and Ignatian educators across the U.S. are invited to amplify the recent statement written by Bishop Joe S. Vásquez by joining a sign-on letter to former DHS Secretary and current White House Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly. The letter, emphasizing Catholic values of dignity and compassion, calls on the administration to maintain the DACA program.
