Bishop Flores on DAPA-DACA Decision

Local News

Immigration activist groups continue to protest outside the Supreme Court. The 4-4 split decision means that the DAPA and DACA case will be sent back to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The decision sparked outrage amongst immigration groups across the country and here in the RGV.

Some lawmakers took to social media to voice frustrations. KVEO News Center 23, reached out to the Catholic Diocese of Brownsville who says this is just one let down in a long line of disappointments.

Bishop Daniel Flores says, “What we say is people rightly look to the government to in some way hold up a standard of justice that works in favor of people instead of putting obstacles in front of them from being able to flourish in life. And this issue from the very beginning  either it was in the congress, the administration or before the courts has been an issue of helping young people to really live up to their aspirations and kind of have the chance it’s the opportunity to live and work freely in this country and get an education.”

Bishop Flores went on to say, he does not want people to lose faith. He also says to keep working toward a better future.
