Boehner 'Taps Brakes' On Immigration Reform Due To Obama Distrust; Evangelicals Decry Inaction

Date: February 7, 2014

Evangelical groups are asking how many more families will be broken apart due to lack of action on immigration reform in Congress, after House Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday that such reform will have a tough time going forward due to Republican distrust of President Barack Obama...

"With a strong majority of Americans, including evangelicals, wanting leaders to fix our broken immigration system, immigration reform is going to happen. The only question is how many families will be broken up and how much our communities have to suffer until Washington acts," Sojourners President Jim Wallis, who is part of the Evangelical Immigration Table, told The Christian Post on Thursday.
