As a pastor to a community of immigrants, Benjamin Marsh is very passionate about those who were brought to America as children having a pathway to citizenship. These individuals, termed “Dreamers,” have been shielded and protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. However, the days of DACA are numbered. Now, many fear they will lose the only place they have ever called home.
Marsh points out the facts: many of them served as essential workers during the pandemic, work in education, and other frontline capacities. He also references Galatians 6 to compel evangelical readers to consider why they should not ignore the plight of their neighbors.
