Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York charged Tuesday that President Trump’s termination of the DACA program “is certainly not Christian, and I would contend it’s not American.”

Ending the program to help immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, he said on the SiriusXM radio program “Conversation With Cardinal Dolan,” “turns our beloved immigrants into political hockey pucks, and they shouldn’t be.”

Dolan noted Trump’s oft-expressed concern that immigrants can bring crime with them, but suggested that fear is overblown.

“The statistics show that way less than one percent of the immigrants are criminals, are drug carriers, are terrorists,” said Dolan. “Way less than one percent.”
