Evangelical conference preaches support of immigrants

Date: October 21, 2011

Several of the speakers are conservative politically but liberal on immigration. The two biggest names are Jim Wallis, president of the social-justice group Sojourners, and Richard Land, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. The two men represent opposite ends of the spectrum politically, Ruby said, with Wallis on the left and Land on the right.
