“Though there are various moral and legal ambiguities in the issue of immigration, there is no ambiguity to ‘Dreamers’. They are in no way at fault. To leave them in the shadows would be morally abhorrent. To deport them would be abhorrent. The only morally acceptable option would be to create a pathway for them to stay here legally and participate fully.”
