Faith Groups Push Congress to Pass Immigration Reform


Faith groups are ramping up pressure on Congress to pass immigration reform. In early September, Catholic priests and bishops around the country will deliver sermons on immigration, part of a larger effort to persuade Catholic lawmakers to support an immigration bill. Meanwhile, some Christian activists in California are marching for 21 days on what they call a pilgrimage for citizenship. A group of prominent evangelical Protestants is now running radio ads aimed at 50 mainly conservative House members who rejected an immigration bill approved by the Senate.
