Cardinal Dolan Weighs in on DACA Decision

NEW YORK— In the audio link to SiriusXM’s Conversation with Cardinal Dolan, Cardinal Dolan weighs in on the president’s decision to end the DACA program, which protects immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. He gives some background on the program, how it’s benefited the country and how this is making our immigrants “political hockey pucks.”

During the broadcast Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin calls in to talk about President Donald Trump’s decision to end the DACA Program, a program that had protected nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the US and their children from deportation. Earlier today, Cardinal Tobin issued a statement on the decision, calling it malicious. Both cardinals talk about the privilege and pleasure of having immigrants in our parishes and in our communities.

During his live show, Cardinal Dolan discusses important religious issues, gives his perspective on news from around the nation and the world, talks to big names from both in and out of the church and takes your calls and questions about faith. He might also mention baseball or food every once in a while, too.

During SiriusXM’s Conversation with Cardinal Dolan, the Cardinal referred to the measure as turning immigrants into “political hockey pucks.” He also spoke about the subject with Cardinal Joseph Tobin, cardinal archbishop of the Archdiocese of Newark, NJ.
