Evangelicals Push Immigration Reform By Lobbying And Preaching

Date: June 12, 2012

Jim Wallis, president and CEO of Sojourners, said he supports including same-sex couples in the definition of family and acknowledged there are differences of opinion within the evangelical community. But he said the fact that there is a diverse coalition working toward immigration reform is important, even if they don't agree on one piece of the issue.

"You have a variety of opinions on issues such same-sex marriage in a group like this," Wallis said, "but I think everybody knows how important families are."
