On October 20, Julie Driscoll, SCN; Joetta Venneman; and Agnes Coveney, OSU went to visit Senator Mitch McConnell’s office in downtown Louisville regarding The DREAM Act of 2017 (S. 1615). The group met with Senator McConnell’s aide, Andrew. Andrew spoke of the Senator as being empathetic toward those who are DREAMers here in the United States. During their time together, they felt Andrew understood the complexities of the issue remarking that other DREAMers had come to the office recently.
They shared a personal story from a resident of Nelson County (provided by Brenda Gonzales, SCN) and also left the LCWR statement in support of the DREAM Act, the USCCB position, some economic concerns that are documented, and information on The DREAM Act of 2017.
Next week, all are invited to pray and act in support of DREAMers.
