“This is so that kids stop suffering and start appearing. We hope that the prayers will create a powerful movement for these children,” Herrera said in Spanish. “I hope people take action, and urge the government to help these children.”

Samuel Rodriguez, Russell Moore Ask Trump to Find a Way to Keep Immigrant Families Together

June 1, 2018 

Today evangelical leaders sent a letter to President Trump expressing concern over the new “zero tolerance” policy at the U.S.-Mexico border that is dividing children from their parents.

The new policy, announced recently by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, already has separated hundreds of families, including those who are seeking asylum in the United States. In their letter, evangelical leaders urge the president to work with the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security to reconsider this “zero tolerance” policy and to provide due process to people seeking asylum.

Major Christian leaders from Samuel Rodriguez to Russell Moore have called on the nation to pray as the White House mulls a solution to immigrant children who were illegally brought into the United States.

DACA deadline arrives without action

March 05, 2018

WASHINGTON—Monday marks the deadline set by President Donald Trump to find a legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but recipients likely won’t feel any immediate effects. Trump announced the demise of DACA in September with a six-month delay for Congress to reach an agreement on how to replace the Obama-era program that protects immigrants brought to the country illegally as minors. Lawmakers failed to pass any immigration legislation despite bipartisan support to protect the 700,000 DACA recipients.

February 27, 2018

MISHAWAKA — About 150 people gathered at Bethel College for a program Monday called “Evangelicals for Dreamers” to show their support for open immigration.

“On the news, we are regularly told that evangelicals and Dreamers are at odds,” the Rev. David Cramer said of the young immigrants whose fate rests in the nation’s capital — whose legal status is protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. But evangelicals, he said, aren’t all “white conservatives who are opposed to open immigration.”

Trump Gets What He Wants in Immigration Debate: Quiet on the Right

February 15, 2018

WASHINGTON — In 2006 and again in 2013, Republican moderates joined Democrats in the Senate to pass sweeping overhauls of the nation’s immigration laws with a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, only to see the compromises torpedoed by a wave of angry activism in the conservative news media and grass roots.
This time, as senators again search for a way forward on immigration, a revolt from the right has so far failed to materialize, in large part because of the intransigence of a different player: a man in the White House who has mostly satisfied immigration hard-liners.
