Hundreds of Catholic hospitals are urging Donald Trump to keep the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, saying it has been critical to providing the nation’s healthcare services.
Members of the Catholic Health Association, which represents 600 hospitals and 1,400 long-term care facilities, said DACA benefits the nation’s team-based approach to medical care delivery. Catholic hospitals provide more than 15% of U.S. hospital services and care to one in six patients.
