Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision today which prevents the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The following statement can be attributed to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World:
“Today’s Supreme Court decision prevents the removal of the hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients who are making positive contributions to our country. More than 200,000 DACA recipients are front-line workers and are putting their health on the line every day to keep the U.S. going during this unprecedented pandemic. They are doctors, nurses, factory and food production workers, and other essential workers who Americans continue to rely on.
“Bread’s work on immigration reform is rooted in our Christian faith – and God’s commandment to love and care for our neighbors. Many of the young people who enrolled in the DACA program are from households that often experience hunger and poverty. They have worked hard and played by the rules to build a better life for themselves and their families.
“We urge the administration to automatically extend DACA permits that expire in 2020 and ask Congress to pass legislation granting permanent legal status to DACA recipients and putting them on a path to citizenship.”
Climate Change Worsens Hunger in Latino/a Communities
Climate change threatens the traditions and lifestyles of Indigenous people.
While climate change impacts everyone, regardless of race, policies and practices around climate have historically discriminated against and excluded people of color.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.
The Bible on...
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
