In Washington, evangelicals gathered to pray and call once again for comprehensive immigration reform. Evangelical leaders have been lobbying Congress to pass legislation that both secures the border and provides a pathway to citizenship. At a press conference on Capitol Hill, they said immigration reform is a matter of moral urgency.
Rev. Russell Moore (Southern Baptist Convention): “We’re here as a group of believers in Jesus Christ who want to let our elected officials know that we’re praying for them. We’re praying for wisdom, we’re praying for discernment, and we’re praying for justice and for compassion in a system that is broken.”
