United Methodist Immigration Witness

On Feb. 17, 2014, United Methodist faith leaders, undocumented immigrants and labor leaders gathered in front of the White House to pray for immigration reform and the end to deportations that are separating families across the globe.

The pray-in was to call attention to the fact that nearly 2 million people have been deported during the Obama Administration. “Two million are too many, it is always the right time to do the right thing,” said Bishop Julius Trimble of the Iowa Area.
