Series on Immigration Reform – Part 1:
Evangelical Leaders Call for Immigration Reform
6/12/12 8:53 AM
I’ve joined 150+ evangelical leaders in calling for #immigration reformbit.ly/KKpkn7If you click on the link, you will see that the list of evangelical leaders who have joined together in calling for reform is quite extensive. It includes the Presidents of some of America’s largest Christian denominations–the Southern Baptist Convention, the General Council of the Assemblies of God, the Christian Reformed Church of North America, and many others. Likewise, this list also includes the signatures of heads of prominent Christian ministries–such as Focus on the Family, the Willow Creek Association, World Vision, and many seminaries and colleges.This groundswell of support from leaders in many different churches and across denominational lines speaks volumes. The fact that all of these leaders agree that Immigration Reform is a top priority says something about how important it is for our politicians to deal with this issue head-on. As this article says, these evangelical Christian leaders are so committed to this issue that they will be airing radio ads in key states about the need to attack this issue and find compromises between party lines.
So we see that there is a growing consensus that immigration reform is necessary. Let’s look tomorrow at what is being done about reform in some of the individual states.
