Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the DACA renewal program in September 2017 placing about 800,000 people collectively referred to as Dreamers in jeopardy of deportation.


The tenuous immigration status of the Dreamers received a reprieve January 13 when a federal court order ensured that “the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on Sept. 5, 2017.”

SAVANNAH--St. Frances Cabrini School, a Catholic elementary school, will close at the end of the current school year due to a decline in enrollment.


The announcement was made by the Diocese of Savannah, which operates the school located at 11500 Middleground Road in Savannah.


With a steady decline in enrollment at the school over the past six years, St. Frances Cabrini Parish has been unable to manage the financial impact of the decrease in tuition collection.

Ever since the announcement in September of this year that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) is to end, my hope has been that Congress acts swiftly and effectively to provide a sensible solution that will be beneficial to the young men and women who now have DACA protections.
