Praise for Obama on Immigration from the Religious Right

posted on June 18, 2012

The Atlantic’s Molly Ball reports on the response from some prominent conservative Christians to President Obama’s announcement that he has moved to halt the deportation of young illegal immigrants. Many on the Christian right, like the Southern Baptist Convention’s Richard Land, continue to criticize Obama for what they have called the president’s “war on religion.” Yet, Ball writes, “Land and others … part ways with some of their Republican brethren when it comes to immigration, and they have been increasingly vocal about their views on the issue, which they see as one of universal human dignity.”
