Palmetto state is focus of immigration reform battle

Date: May 30, 2013

South Carolina has become the newest battleground state over immigration reform. Thursday, one organization announced a campaign across the state to push for passage of an immigration reform bill.

The ad campaign comes from a faith-based group called Evangelical Immigration Table, that crosses some bipartisan lines uniting conservative and liberal denominations. As the Senate takes up the debate over immigration reform, listeners of Christian radio stations around the state will hear the group's ad in the coming weeks.

"So please join a growing movement of Christians asking our political leaders for immigration solutions rooted in Biblical values," says Rev. Jim Goodroe, the Director of Missions for the Spartanburg Co. Baptist Network in the commercial.
