Evangelical Christian leaders call for immigration reform
Evangelical leaders, longtime advocates for immigration reform, call on the president and Congress to introduce legislation quickly in 2013.
Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, called immigration a Christian and moral issue.
“As a Christian, my faith calls me to be concerned for all my neighbors, whether or not they look like me, talk like me or even believe like me,” Anderson said.
He said he wasn't “counting votes” in Congress on the issue.
“My sense is that political momentum is moving toward immigration reform,” Anderson said.
