New Evangelical Immigration Table Ad: We’re Praying For You, GOP House Members
WASHINGTON, D.C., JANUARY 29, 2014 — As House Republicans leave town for their annual retreat in Cambridge, Md., and prepare to release their principles for immigration reform, the Evangelical Immigration Table is offering support for positive movement toward immigration reform in the form of a full-page USA Today ad.
Addressed to GOP members of the House, the ad offers prayer and support as Congress moves forward toward “meaningful and urgently needed reform.” It also highlights the Evangelical Immigration Table’s own principles.
Citing the Biblical imperatives for a path forward that honors the rule of law (Romans 13) and the call to welcome the stranger (Matthew 25), the ad concludes by saying that “our churches, our communities, and our country urgently await your action.”
The Evangelical Immigration Table is a broad coalition of evangelical organizations and leaders advocating for immigration reform consistent with biblical values.
