Evangelical Leaders: Jesus Would Want Immigration Reform

Evangelical groups are planning a major campaign to sell congregants on immigration reform, arguing that the Bible offers theological support for aiding the undocumented population.

The Evangelical Immigration Table, a coalition of evangelical churches and organizations, say the new “I Was A Stranger” program will ask pastors to educate their flock about the Old and New Testament’s calls to aid outsiders, especially Jesus’ own sermons on the topic. Leaders say that Scripture’s recurring concept of the “stranger” in need is synonymous with undocumented immigrants today.

1. perhaps they should also talk about the poor, the homeless and the ill

since it seems that the evangelicals don't have much kindness toward their fellow Americans who have hardships in their lives.
