300 Tennessee Clergy Gather To Prevent Spread Of Anti-Immigrant Laws To Their State

Faith in Public Life reports that an interfaith coalition of nearly 300 clergy met in Nashville, Tennessee, to discuss the moral implications of anti-immigrant laws that are spreading throughout the country. Faith leaders in states like Alabama, who view the new laws as divisive, bigoted, and un-Christian, have been at the forefront of the fight against them. Bishop William Willimon of the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church keynoted the event. Willimon has joined the federal lawsuit against Alabama’s draconian immigration law, which he’s dubbed “the meanest immigration law in the nation.”
