Evangelicals Urge Trump to Protect Immigrants, Families in ‘Temporary Protected Status’ Program

(Worthy News) – An evangelical coalition that lobbies for immigration reform has asked the Trump administration to extend the “Temporary Protected Status” program for four nations.

Signatories for the EIT’s letter included Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals; Shirley V. Hoogstra, president of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities; Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention; and the Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

The TPS program allows for nationals from certain designated countries to remain in the United States due to temporary conditions that would make it dangerous to return them, such an armed conflict or a major natural disaster. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More…) ]
