Evangelical leaders shell out $250,000 to support immigration bill

Evangelical Christians are taking to Florida's airwaves in support of immigration reform.

On Thursday, the Evangelical Immigration Table announced a quarter-million-dollar media buy that will include radio ads and billboards in Florida. They're hoping the effort will convince Republican leaders on legislation that provides a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. 

"We’re expecting thousands more to stand up and be counted as advocates of immigration reform," said Dr. Russell Moore, president-elect of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

In a media call, spiritual  leaders called immigration reform a "biblical and theological issue."

"Before my political affiliation, I am a Christian," said Rev. Dan Krause, the lead pastor at Chugach Covenant Church in Anchorage. "My values are rooted in that place... I’m completely convinced that God has spoken on this issue. It is our job as Christians and as Christian leaders to love those who are here in Jesus’ name."

The Senate version of the legislation, which is headed to the floor, establishes a 13-year road to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. The bill also creates new opportunities for low-skilled and highly skilled workers to come to the country, and strengthens border security.

The faith-based leaders called the provisions "fair."

Their ads, urging Christians to pray for reform, will air nationally on the Salem Communications Network. There will be additional ads in Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

Florida's share will feature Rev. Dr. David Uth, senior pastor at First Baptist Orlando.

Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas will also see the message plastered on billboards located near a handful of key congressional offices.  

The media buy is part of the Evangelical Immigration Table's #pray4reform campaign.

We will trade Mexico out EBT addicts for their hard workers. That would be a deal for the ages.

Bad things happen in Washington when no one's watching. THEY ARE NOT BEING HONEST WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?


Democrats are scheming to grant Amnesty on the sly, behind closed doors, while attention is deflected to the other scandals erupting all over our nation's capital. Harry Reid's gone so far as to say it will "easily" pass. IF THE GANG OF EIGHT MEANT TO OVERHAUL IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT, BECAUSE THEY ARE CRYING ABOUT THE 1986 LAW IS BROKEN, THEN WHY DID THEY SHOVE ALL THE POSITIVE AMENDMENTS ASIDE AND REJECT ANY AMENDMENT THAT MADE GOOD JUDGMENT? Decent lawmakers as Senator Sessions was derided when he came forward with logical laws, but fell fail to their objections.

Guess what? They got to go through “THE PEOPLE” first.


Reid claims he has all the democrats in pocket and just needs four more Republicans to pass the proposed legislation. Now folks, I know this looks like tough odds BUT patriotic Conservatives, Republican numerous other political parties and even Liberals. Black, White, Hispanic, Asian; it makes no difference, where you’re from if you pay taxes? We are in this chaos together. Obama and his mob have used every method to divide the country and even the top senior officials have promoted their socialist agenda by implicating the race card. This is a desperate move usually of last resort. But we’ve rallied before when the race was too close to call...and we've won! STOP THE AMNESTY TRAIN WRECK NOW!

That's where you come in..?


If the Gang of Eight Amnesty Bill passes in the coming days or weeks it won't be because Americans want 33 million illegal’s--new dependents--on their back. Who ends up paying for the family members they sponsor? Eventually you do. It'll be because Patriots didn't step up. Remember if this law passes without any enforcement triggers, and the badly intentionally estimated 11 million claims a path to citizenship, the taxpayer will reap the negative reward of more taxes. If you really believe that the Politicians will not reward illegal aliens with citizen entitlements, the joke will be on you. These people will find a way through loopholes, as they have always done. You cannot trust either political party, except for a very few who have not been bought by the Special Interests.

So, you ready for the challenge? Good, here's our mission:


Start blasting "NO AMNESTY! DOWN WITH THE IMMIGRATION BILL!" Send blasting faxes into the in-boxes of every member of the House and Senate at www.numbersusa.com . It’s free or you can help out with a donation? Let lawmakers know, “A vote for Amnesty means no re-election for you!" We can jam their phones at toll-free -- 1-888-978-3094--. Set up your message on Twitter or Facebook as the Left is doing their counterproductive misleading information. You can reach millions of people on these Social networks, so we can hammer away at these slimy politicians The Liberals are not going to tell you the truth, as illegal aliens gaining legal status, means future votes or for the Republican elites its plenty more profits for their corporate friends. While we pay for all the illegal alien families living expenses, they walk away and expect us through forced taxes to pay for it all. It’s the same with the Guest Workers on the farms? Who do you think pay for the Health care, education for their kids. Not the agricultural community? YOU DO. As I have said many times read the true information that has surfaced in the E-media at American Patrol about the daily news on illegal immigration.
Every American no matter the state they live in, should check out the incredible stomach churning outlay that illegal aliens cost Los Angeles County in just one month, let alone annually? For stopping unauthorized job seekers, for voting, claiming welfare and for credit security we must demand that the Federal government issue a citizen biometric identification card.

fedup

Evangelical leaders did NOT shell out $250K for these ads. The money is from George Soros, multibillionaire atheist, who thinks he can "play God." The evangelical leaders belong to the Evangelical Immigration Table, which does not legally exist but is an offshoot of Soros' National Immigration Forum. In other words, both are "fronts" for Soros. "Follow the money." You will be shocked.
