The DACA program has allowed nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth who were brought to the United States as children to obtain work permits, attend school, and contribute openly to our economy. In September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Trump administration’s decision to end the DACA program. Several presidential executive orders have made it easier for the government to arrest, detain, and deport immigrants, even those who have been in the U.S. for many years, have committed no crimes, and who have family members who are U.S. citizens. By supporting dreamers and undocumented immigrants, we are fulfilling a demand that is repeated 35 times in the Torah. Leviticus says, “The stranger who sojourns with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
