The usual suspects pushing immigration reform have a new ally in the fight this time — the religious right.
Christian conservatives, who stayed on the sidelines in 2006 or opposed reform outright, have sprung into action for the cause.
They’re talking to their congregations from the pulpit. They’re urging lawmakers in private meetings to support reform. And they’re even calling for change publicly.
Given my past research on religion and immigration attitudes, I find these developments very encouraging.
