Evangelicals Announce Mobilizing Strategy for Immigration Reform

Posted: Jun 12, 2012


More than 150 influential evangelical Christians across America, including Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, endorsed an “Evangelical Statement of Principles for Immigration Reform” released on Tuesday during a press conference on Capitol Hill. Following the press event, prominent evangelical leaders delivered these principles to leadership from the Obama administration, Senate and House of Representatives.

Evangelical leaders formally announced the creation of an “Evangelical Immigration Table” to advance a cohesive immigration reform message and strategy while building political will in the pews. The leaders made the case that humane immigration reform should be a moral priority.

The Evangelical Immigration Table ran on Tuesday a full page ad in Politico announcing their principles for immigration reform and listing the 150 evangelical leaders endorsing the principles. The Table also released a radio ad that will begin running next week on Christian radio stations in Colorado and Florida. Further ad buys and earned media work will target publications and geographic areas with high populations of evangelical and Hispanic voters.
