As a United Methodist pastor for more than 25 years, and as someone who has worked tirelessly to try to keep families of all kinds together at any cost, I applaud the state of Washington and the 15 other states (and the District of Columbia) who are standing up against the current administration’s attempt to try to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

This attempt by the Trump administration to end DACA will break up families and destroy the very fabric on which our country is built. It is the opposite of the compassion and understanding heart God has called us to share, the heart that I believe is at the very center of what it means to call ourselves the United States of America. Way to go Washington! Keep up the good work!
