As Evangelicals ‘Pray for Reform,’ Bipartisan House Group Agrees in Principle on Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON, D.C., MAY 20, 2013 – On Thursday, a bipartisan group of House lawmakers announced that they have reached an agreement in principle on immigration reform. The announcement comes in the midst of the Evangelical Immigration Table’s campaign “Pray for Reform: 92 Days of Prayer and Action to Pass Immigration Reform.”

The following statement can be attributed to the Evangelical Immigration Table:

“This week, evangelicals participating in the Pray for Reform challenge have been praying specifically for the negotiators in the House to resolve their differences and put forward a proposal that reflects evangelical principles for immigration reform. We are pleased to see that they have an agreement in principle, which shows courage and marks a significant step forward.

“The momentum for immigration reform continues to grow. As evangelicals, we strongly support members of Congress who continue to work together. The agreement in the House is momentous. We look forward to seeing details of a House bill that brings honor to the rule of law, keeps our borders secure and is fair to taxpayers —  and also emphasizes the God-given dignity of every person, unifies families and includes a fair path to earned citizenship.

“We will continue to pray for members of Congress to come together on immigration, rise above partisan politics and — this summer — pass an immigration bill that will strengthen our families and our communities.”
