African-American, Caribbean-American and Hispanic Pastors Challenge Immigration Critics' Divisive Charges

WASHINGTON, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A coalition of African-American, Caribbean-American and Hispanic-American pastors will hold a joint press conference on Tuesday, May 10 at 2:30 p.m. to respond to scurrilous attempts by immigration foes to divide ethnic groups in order to derail comprehensive immigration reform.

Pastors from across the country formed the African American Clergy for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (AACCIR) to advance immigration reform initiatives in Washington. They also are challenging the divisive charges that Hispanic and Caribbean immigrants are stealing jobs, public resources and civil rights advancements from African Americans.

First they could start by not spinning the word "immigrant" when the subject is illegal aliens. Good luck to them trying to prove the pro-illegal propaganda. Most of us aren't that stupid.

It's a shame Black pastors are lending their weight to illegals but I take solace in the fact that their flock is by and large against them on this issue.

Churches of course are going to be at the forefront of liberalizing immigration laws and being soft on illegal immigration. So many desperate illegals are uneducated, and very religious/socially conservative... which is right up the churchs' demographic.

Today, African American and Hispanic clergy were able to hold an honest dialogue and found common ground on this important issue that affects the faith community across ethnic lines. I am proud to join with such a distinguished group of clergy to move the issue of immigration reform forward," said the Reverend Cortes. "The biblical basis for immigration reform is a bond that brings our communities together to fight for the immigrant community."]
I thought the Bible said to "Obey the law of the Land"

It does but it is just like our immigration laws that are being ignored by these types.

I'm sure many believe that in spite of high unemployment and outrageous government debt that we can import many millions more from all over the planet and pay them to breed here and give them all a nice cushy American lifestyle.

It's getting to the point where we cannot keep bringing in the third world poverty and birth rates. They are beginning to outnumber the working taxpayers in many places.

These church leaders a joke. Why aren't they off in those other nations doing some missionary work trying to improve conditions in those countries? Of course not, just bring all the impoverished of the world to the USA and help them find ways onto welfare handouts. That's the new kind of "charity".
