Continued work for immigration remedy urged

January 16, 2018

WASHINGTON (BP) — Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore and some other evangelical Christian leaders are urging the federal government to continue to work toward a long-term solution for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children in the wake of reported comments by President Trump that have embroiled the effort.

Trump made critical comments — allegedly marked by obscene language — about African countries in a White House meeting Jan. 11 with legislators. The controversial remarks came two days after Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), and the other evangelicals had called for Congress to prioritize a remedy for Dreamers, a label that stems from the name of a bill introduced to protect this category of immigrants.

Líderes evangélicos conservadores urgen al DHS extender el TPS para los salvadoreños

January 4, 2018

Líderes evangélicos conservadores urgieron este jueves a la secretaria de Seguridad Nacional, Kirstjen Nielsen, a que extienda el Estatus de Protección Temporal (TPS) para cerca de 200,000 salvadoreños cuando anuncie su decisión el lunes próximo, para dar tiempo a que el Congreso reforme el programa.

En una carta enviada hoy, líderes de la llamada “Mesa Evangélica sobre Inmigración” (“Evangelical Immigration Table”) indicaron que si bien es necesario reformar el programa de alivio migratorio instituido por el Congreso en 1990, ese proceso requerirá tiempo, y una extensión del TPS evitará la separación de familias.
