Religious groups push for US immigration reform

Date: June 13, 2012

 

The group, called the Evangelical Immigration Table, blames the current political tension within the American political system for the inability of the government to be able to do anything.

Jim Wallis, a member of the Evangelical Immigration Table, said the group was committed to ensuring the government recognised the 'moral and biblical imperative' of creating an immigration system which fellow member Tom Minnery said was centred in an 'atmosphere of human dignity'.
