The nation's largest Presbyterian denomination denounced the announcement of DACA being rescinded. Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Stated Clerk J. Herbert Nelson, II wrote a letter to President Trump condemning his decision.

"DACA has provided safety and protection for approximately 800,000 individuals from detention and deportation. The program offered empowerment to those made vulnerable by a failure in our laws," wrote Nelson.

"Your decision now pushes these empowered and responsible individuals into making unthinkable choices about how to maintain their families. It is an attempt to return them to vulnerability."
