Obama Immigration Action May Split Evangelical Coalitionposted on December 2, 2014
USA Today‘s Alan Gomez reports on the effects of President Obama’s decision to protect 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. The president’s decision “threatens to fracture a broad, and rare, coalition of religious groups, mostly Christian, including moderate and conservative evangelicals and Catholics, that had come together to push for a solution to improving the nation’s immigration system,” Gomez writes. “Anytime you’re going to build a coalition, you have to know when to walk together and when to walk separate,” Reverend Tony Suarez, pastor and vice president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said.
