“We are Trying to Live the American Dream”

America’s Bishops are mounting an urgent campaign to protect the ‘dreamers.’ Along with the Bishop of Brooklyn Nicholas DiMarzio, who’s an internationally renowned champion of migrants and refugees, the prelates are calling for the preservation of DACA. The program is facing a legal threat. DACA protects some 800,000 young immigrants from deportation and gives them the right to work. Our Michelle Powers reports from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Sunset Park where she speaks with a young ‘dreamer’ and a priest who is helping them.
