CWN Editor's Note: Following the Supreme Court’s ruling on DACA, Archbishop José Gomez (president of the USCCB) and Bishop Mario Dorsonville (chairman of the Committee on Migration) said, “In times of uncertainty, let us remember the teachings of the Gospel which encourage us to be open and receptive to those in need: ‘If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him?’ (1 John 3:17).”

    Yet another example of the Church gone wrong: the Supreme Court basically said Obama can issue the DACA executive order but Trump can't use the same power. The Church might be happy with the outcome but it is based on a fundamental contradiction so if the end justifies the mean, be very careful of why you applaud.
