Archbishop Lucas Statement on the Supreme Court Decision Regarding DACA

June 18, 2020 (Omaha, NE) – I applaud the U.S. Supreme Court decision that supports the human dignity of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.  The decision keeps intact the federal program that has allowed young Americans born elsewhere to flourish in this country and to contribute to the common good of us all.

I invite all in our community to join me in encouraging Congress to find a permanent solution to keeping Dreamers in the United States, a solution that will afford them stable protection and lift the burden caused by legal uncertainty.
