Evangelical leaders are pointing to scripture to persuade Christians and lawmakers to support immigration reform.
The campaign, called "I Was A Stranger", asks Christians to spend 40 days studying Matthew 25, which calls on believers to clothe and feed the stranger.
This push is coming from the National Association of Evangelicals, the Southern Baptist Convention, Willow Creek Church Pastor Bill Hybels, and author Max Lucado.
The leaders are not endorsing any specific legislation. They say they are seeking a balance of national security with policies that keep immigrant families together.
What do organizers expect to happen by Day 41 of the campaign? Galen Carey, vice president of government relations for the National Association of Evangelicals, has more, on CBN Newswatch, Jan. 15.
