Fast For Families Tour Of US Promotes Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON – Four activists for immigration reform are taking their cause on the road. They will board a bus Tuesday and urge people in 100 communities around the country to fast with them until Congress passes immigration reform...

The Rev. Jim Wallis, president and founder of Sojourners, said the campaign is for all immigrants.

“This is not just about Latino communities,” Wallis said. “It’s about all of us.”

Wallis said the movement is important and requires a group of people to change the broken political system and the broken immigration system.

“We are a wind changing group,” Wallis said. “We are a social movement changing politics.”
