Citing a new focus on biblical passages that call for Christians to treat foreigners and strangers well, Colorado evangelicals are turning into a potent force in the push for immigration reform.

Colorado evangelicals have joined a national immigration-reform movement that began two years ago with discussions among evangelical leaders and resulted in the formation of the Evangelical Immigration Table. The group includes more than 150 leaders, including the left-leaning Sojourners Christian ministry and the conservative Southern Baptists.
