The following resolution was passed unamimously at our National Assembly 2017.
From the resolution:Dreamers Welcoming the Stranger
BE IT RESOLVED THAT THE LADIES OF CHARITY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:
- Will reach out to and stand with this group of young people known as the DREAMers–contributors to our economy, veterans of our military, academic standouts in our universities, and leaders in our parishes and communities;
- Will study and educate our members about this issue and enlist their support;
- Will participate in the efforts of the USCCB to find a legislative solution such as Dream Act of 2017, S. 1615/ H.R. 3440 which will provide “conditional permanent resident status” and a “path to full lawful permanent residency and eventual citizenship”; and
- Will keep the DREAMers and their families in our prayer.
