Cheyenne faith community leaders come forward to talk about DACA

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo.- Several faith community leaders in Cheyenne came together Monday morning, February 5, to talk to Wyoming's Congressional Delegation about DACA.

Not only do they support the program, saying it's important to look at the individual face as well as the benefits of how they support our economy, but they also say a decision needs to be made soon.

The president rescinded DACA back in September, and Congress now has the pressure to come to a solution.

The decision will impact more than 800,000 people in the United States- 600 of those recipients are from Wyoming.

Rev. Rodger McDaniel of Highlands United Presbyterian Church said it's not often all these different faith leaders can agree, but they all believe it's important to speak up for this large population who are left in limbo while they wait for a decision.
