Evangelicals: Pray for Boehner on immigration reform
CNN ^ | 12/5/13 | Dan Merica

Posted on 12/06/2013 6:55:59 AM PST by jimbo123

A group of evangelicals in favor of passing immigration reform have a message for House Speaker John Boehner: "We're praying for you."

In new ads, Evangelical Immigration Table–group that has been behind immigration reform on Capitol Hill–asks people to pray for Boehner and House Republican leadership on immigration reform and urge those leaders to listen to their prayers.

The group says the ad will air on WTOP, a radio station in Washington, D.C., as well as 30 Christian radio stations in Texas and North Carolina. A Spanish-speaking iteration of the spot will also air in Southern California.

"Our immigration system is broken and it is hurting everyone," says Dub Karriker, senior pastor at the Christian Assembly Church in Durham, N.C. "Families are separated, employers can't find the workers they need, and the undocumented who want to get right with the law are told to get in a line that doesn't exist."

The ad continues: "More than ever, Speaker Boehner needs our prayers. Congress can pass a true conservative solution that will actually fix our immigration system...Please join me in praying for Speaker Boehner and House leadership that God will help them find an immigration solution that reflect biblical values."

Employers can't find the workers they need??

Why dont they hire those poor underpaid abused Walmart employees that the progressives(libs)/unions keep complaining and protesting about. (all last November)

If there are so many empty jobs in USA then why dont the Walmarts and McDonalds employees take them and quit those places? Why do we need more of them?

High skilled/educated immigrants is a different situation, but the above shows we are being lied to.

Aren't things so lax now that they could just order a green card and get it delivered to whatever their US address is, if they wanted to bother?

I am totally in favor of immigration reform:

1) Secure the border
2) Enforce the current laws

Now that would be a change I could support.

LOL, looks like they dont want to get ‘right with the law’ quite that much.

Looks like they want the law to change to make what they been doing illegally into being ‘right’ (legal)

George Soros and Evangelicals cannot be used in the same sentence. This man is a rabid anti-Christian, anti-jew hater who is a commie through and through. America needs to sit up and look around at what has happened to “Organized Religion” in our nation. They are political pawns.

Self hating pseudo evangelicals. And a lot of self hating pseudo Roman Catholics are in that boat too; it knows no denomination.

Of course as their ‘god’ runs out of credible options, maybe they will be sold on the real God and leave that boat.

From the grief that illegals were giving Obama at that CA immigration rally it must not be as lax as is thought by most here.

They insisted he stop the deportations and heckled him over it.

I am connecting the walmart and McDonald protests to the claim that all these jobs are unfilled and we need illegals to fill them, clearly this contradiction is glaring.

But no one in GOP has guts to call it out anymore.

Evangelicals who are proselytizing for "social justice", not Jesus Christ are a cult more dangerous than anything Jim Jones ever dreamed up.

Jones was content to force his own followers to drink the Kool-Aid, not everybody else.

I figure libs are not going to heckle Obama unless they have a real grievance.

These are his base. Its different with them and GOP.

Some libs were speculating that if Obama stopped deportations then there would be little pressure to pass amnesty with citizenship, so Obama actually told these hispanics that the law requires him to deport, believe it or not, and they need to pressure congress to act.(Dems see this as a easy win political issue to win elections)

You never saw that exchange? Just curious.

The real problem is when the libs including Obama attack employers for hiring unskilled workers at unskilled pay, blaming them for medicaid and food stamps,

and then at same time GOPe + CofC demands amnesty with these claims that too many unskilled jobs are wanting of unskilled workers

It just makes GOPe look like prostitutes that libs accuse them of being.

More than 50% of the workforce is either underemployed, or unemployed, and employers can’t find any employees unless they hire criminals?

Alrighty then...

RE :”The fastest way to fill those jobs is to cut welfare benefits.”

I seem to remember that idea posted every day since FR opened up for business in late 1990s.

You holding breath for it?

Libs got a argument they been using for many years now.

That its McDonalds and Walmarts that are stealing those benefits from taxpayers by underpaying their unskilled workers who get those benefits(they dont talk about the unemployed) .

And YES I have heard real living Republicans accept that faulty reasoning,

Those aren’t Evangelicals and they’re not Christians either.

You don’t support rewarding evil acts (breaking our laws) and call yourself a Christian.

You don’t support forced “Charity” by Government taking our money, that we worked hard for, and giving it to someone else at the threat of a pointed gun.

The hispanic hecklers were young hispanics and they seem to be complaining about their relatives being deported,

I thought of Obama;s contrived deferred action program but maybe thats just for those who grew up here, not their older relatives.

I know people getting those jobs here, but they have to have the right education and experience.

One friend of mine got his Masters in IA while working as IT network engineer here and he has it made now.

Sure they will reject someone with Walmarts experience and education.

The problem I see here is young adults here are not attracted to those college programs, they waste their college money on liberal arts degrees

its the Indians and Asian immigrants who are attracted to those careers

There was an irony to Obama being heckled by them, but he tried to use it to Dems advantage,

Of course they were in CA probably in Dem district so its not like they can vote (many) Republicans out there.

Let me explain it. The problem is nobody wants to major in the hard scions only to be undercut by the H-1B visa indentured slaves.

You have it bass ackward. To correct the problem cease H-1B, wages will go up and viola, kids will major in the hard science again. I smell troll...

Wages for those jobs are fantastic here.
Yet I see many american kids here living with parents after getting useless degrees.
They work part time at idiot jobs
I ask them why they dont go for a real career like IT or engineering and they say ‘I dont like stuff like that”

Too much work and studying

Hell, the companies actually go to public schools HERE to convince American kids HERE to take up technical careers HERE in college.

Rush wont tell you that.

RE I smell troll... “

HAHAHA, did Rush tell you to say that?

“Evangelicals who are proselytizing for “social justice”, not Jesus Christ are a cult more dangerous than anything Jim Jones ever dreamed up.

Jones was content to force his own followers to drink the Kool-Aid, not everybody else.”

This is the truest statement I have read in a long time.

In fact, many believe that this “social justice” movement will one day be used by the false prophet talked about in Revelation to unite the religions of the world under some watered-down version of Christianity where it’s all about “feeding the poor” and taking wealth from the developed world to help 3rd world countries. During that time, it will be all about finding “common ground” with all religions and working together toward building a better world.

The true gospel and saving souls for eternity will no longer be on the agenda, and any bible-believing Christian that dares talk about such things will be ostracized (and perhaps even martyred). The leader of this false global religion (the false prophet) will also advocate for a one-world government to help enforce this redistribution scheme. This of course will bring about the rise of the anti-Christ.

When you look around at what’s happening out there, it appears that we may not be too far off from these things occurring.
