GAINESVILLE, Ga – In response to President Trump’s announcement over the weekend that DACA will be a priority for the administration, Jentezen Franklin issues the following statement:
“I was incredibly encouraged to hear the president’s recent announcement that he will be signing an executive order protecting Dreamers and providing a path to citizenship for them. This is the right decision and a just decision. It will provide a way for hard-working young people to pursue the American dream with confidence and dignity. These precious souls add tremendous value to the fabric of our society and we should welcome’s them with open arms!
Make no mistake, It is still the responsibility of Congress to create a permanent solution and find common ground on immigration reform. But this announcement from the President is a giant step in the right direction. Well done.”
