posted on April 30, 2014

Adelle M. Banks of Religion News Service reports, “Trying yet again with new voices, more than 250 evangelical pastors came to Capitol Hill on Tuesday (April 29) to push for immigration reform.” The Evangelical Immigration Table held another conference before trying to urge Republican members of Congress to grant a legal pathway to citizenship. One new voice present was Eugene Cho, a Seattle pastor who is of Korean descent. “I didn’t want people to think this was only a Hispanic issue,” he said at the news conference. Banks writes, “He pointed out that one out of five Korean-Americans are undocumented.”
