Cardinal O'Malley urges President to keep DACA Policy

BRAINTREE -- Cardinal Seán P. O'Malley urged President Donald Trump not to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program amid reports that the president is considering doing so.

Set into place by the Obama administration in 2012, DACA grants permission for unauthorized immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children to work and obtain an education in this country. To qualify, they must have entered the country before the age of 16, have resided in it continuously since June of 2007, and have committed no serious offenses and pose no threat to public safety.

About 800,000 immigrants, frequently referred to as "Dreamers," currently benefit from the program.  See rest of Article here.
