Evangelicals Launch “I Was a Stranger” Immigration Reform Effort

immigration-iwasastrangerChristian groups ramped up their push for immigration reform. At a media event in Washington, speakers sat at a table with empty chairs meant to represent deported family members of immigrants living here. Meanwhile, evangelical leaders launched a campaign they are calling “I Was a Stranger.” In a video released this week, they urged churches to spend 40 days studying biblical passages that relate to immigration, in order to build grassroots support for immigration reform.
