The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship denounced the move by the Trump administration to wind down DACA, calling upon supporters to contact their congressmen and senators to urge support for the DREAM Act.

Stephen K. Reeves, associate coordinator of partnerships and advocacy for CBF, said in a statement last week that "churches have the chance to demonstrate the love of Christ in tangible ways by stepping in with a message of hope and with vocal and visible support, advocating on their behalf."

"We as Cooperative Baptists are committed to advocating for just treatment of the strangers among us, just as scripture commands," stated Reeves.

"[The ending of DACA] provides Congress the opportunity to do the right thing and for CBF folks to play a role. Congress must act now by passing the bipartisan DREAM Act."
