A letter from Fr. Jenkins

Dear members of the Notre Dame community:

With the plight of Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) now attracting attention at the highest level of government, it is both timely and urgent that we express unqualified backing for a critical piece of legislation. The BRIDGE Act (Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy Act), which has broad bipartisan support, would codify protection for our DACA students and classmates. I urge members of this community — faculty, staff and students — to contact their representatives to ask for swift passage of this legislation.


Fr. John Jenkins
