Evangelicals Praying For Boehner to Take Up Immigration Reform

Rate this Entry
Lest you think immigration reform is just a priority for heathen ultra-lefties, it's helpful to know about the important work of groups like the National Association of Evangelicals. From the NY Times:

A coalition of evangelical Christian churches pushing for an overhaul of the immigration laws will run radio commercials over the next two weeks calling for prayers for the speaker of the House, John A. Boehner of Ohio, to take up legislation on the issue.

The Evangelical Immigration Table, which includes the National Association of Evangelicals and 10 other Christian organizations and churches, will run 60-second spots on WTOP, a news and talk station in Washington, and on more than 30 Christian radio stations throughout North Carolina and the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Ads in Spanish will run in Orange County, Calif.

“More than ever, Speaker Boehner needs our prayers,” says Pastor Dub Karriker of the Christian Assembly Church in Durham, N.C., in the ads running in that state. He says Congress should pass “a true conservative solution” to fix the immigration system. “Please join me in praying for Speaker Boehner and House leadership, that God will help them find an immigration solution that reflects biblical values,” Pastor Karriker says.

The coalition said it had spent more than $1 million this year on ads promoting its message, and more than 200,000 people have signed up online to pray for House leaders. The groups favor broad legislation that includes a path to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally.
