Group Fasts Near Capitol For Immigration Reform

Date: November 13, 2013

WASHINGTON - Prayer and fasting might be the push needed to get Congress to agree on something.
Beginning Tuesday, a group of faith, immigrant rights and labor leaders holed up in a community tent set up on the National Mall.

Just blocks from the Capitol, they're fasting and praying for Congress to pass immigration reform.

"Sometimes you can organize and march and struggle and work as hard as you can," says Rev. Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners. "All you can do sometimes is pray for a miracle."
