US Bishops Call for Legislative Action on ‘Dreamers’
The chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Migration, Bishop Joe Vásquez, of Austin, Texas, on April 26, 2018, announced support for H.R. 4796, the “Uniting and Securing America” (USA) Act of 2018 as it is currently written. The USA Act is a bipartisan bill that offers a path to citizenship to Dreamers and augments existing border security technology at the U.S./Mexico border.
“We are hopeful our support of the current version of the USA Act, and our continued support of the Dream Act, will encourage Congress to act now and find a humane legislative solution for Dreamers,” noted Bishop Vásquez.
