Refugee and Immigration Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is among the signers of a letter from 850+ national, state, and local non-profit organizations to President-elect Trump requesting that he continue Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in light of the public safety, economic, and humanitarian benefits.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an immigration option for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States before the age of 16. Although DACA does not provide a pathway to lawful permanent residence, it does provide temporary protection from deportation, work authorization, and the ability to apply for a social security number.
