Focus on the Family joins evangelical call for immigration reform

Date: June 12, 2012

 

More than 100 pastors, academic leaders and others endorsed the “Evangelical Statement of Principles for Immigration Reform,” unveiled Tuesday, which calls for bipartisan legislation protecting family unity and guaranteeing secure borders. The group said it is planning a radio ad campaign to support its push.
 
“Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in America,” the statement reads. “We urge our nation’s leaders to work together with the American people to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and that will make our nation proud.”
