WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than 600 conservative leaders from close to 40 states called on House Republicans to vote on immigration reform this year. In more than 100 meetings with members of Congress, the coalition of Bibles, Badges and Business leaders discussed the need for reform for our nation’s economy, security and moral integrity.

Support also spread on social media, including more than 10,000 tweets so far this week at #Ready4Reform, an effort that will continue as the House of Representatives decides how to proceed in coming days and weeks.

“Immigration reform can grow the economy, uphold biblical values and honor the rule of law," said Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum. "Republican members of Congress can take great encouragement in hearing that message from their conservative base. They can move forward knowing that they have unprecedented support from all corners.”
