I was a stranger and you took me in: Immigration Reform and Evangelicals

It is no secret that the immigration debate in the USA has become louder, especially as the country's white majority quickly loses influence. At times, the church has (and is) behind the curve on important social issues. The below video, however, suggests that some are realizing that the we have to rethink our xenophobia and find a way to solve the problem. And for Christians, it means treating the foreigner among us the way that God commanded Israel in the Hebrew Bible and Jesus in the New Testament.

In the video and in an open  letter to President Obama and other national leaders, they ask not only for leadership and action on the issue, but the chance to meet the leaders and support them.
