PRESS RELEASE: Evangelical Leaders Plan DC Day of Prayer and Action at Key Moment in Immigration Reform Discussions

WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH 25, 2013 — The moment to fix our broken immigration system and restore hope to millions by passing immigration reform has arrived. On April 17, a unified evangelical voice will echo through the halls of Congress proclaiming a biblical vision for immigration reform that respects the rule of law, reunites families and upholds human dignity.

Evangelical leaders are planning their day of action as bipartisan leaders in the Senate try to reach final agreement on the elements of immigration legislation before their two-week Easter recess. At this critical moment in legislative negotiations, members of the Evangelical Immigration Table pray that all stakeholders involved can work toward a compromise. The hopes and dreams of millions lie in their hands.
