Social Justice News
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has come out and supported the BRIDGE (Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy) Act which is being proposed in both Houses of Congress. This is a bipartisan effort to sustain temporary relief from deportation and employment eligibility offered to youth through the Department of Homeland Security’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The Justice for Immigrants website of the USCCB has a link to help those who wish to petition their representatives in Congress to pass the Bridge Act. Please refer your people to http://justiceforimmigrants.org/category/action-alerts/.
