Valley Interfaith Fights for DACA, Sends 10,000 Cards to Congress

Wielding 10,000 signed postcards to Congressional Representatives and scriptural passages on the subject, Valley Interfaith leaders and Catholic Bishop Daniel E. Flores  forcefully called on Congress to protect DREAMers as they decide the future of DACA.

“The Bible is clear,” declared  Msgr. Heriberto Diaz of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Brownsville.  “We are to welcome the immigrant, as we were once immigrants in a foreign land.”

Bishop Flores emphasized, “Young people are not statistics…not just numbers…they are young people with hopes and dreams.”
