Natural Allies for Immigration Reform

Since 2013, a network of conservative faith, law enforcement, business leadership, and veterans have come together to establish a new consensus on immigrants and America.

These allies have a common goal, for good reason.

They have seen the changing face of America in their congregations, businesses and communities. Their response has been to advocate for policy solutions that will strengthen their communities and help new Americans attain the opportunities, skills and status to reach their fullest potential.

Through strategy sessions, roundtables and visits to Capitol Hill, they’ve advocated for broad immigration solutions that keep us secure, respect the rule of law, help grow our economy and are compassionate.

“For evangelicals, the Bible is our top authority. The Scriptures are clear that God loves and protects refugees and other immigrants. He cares for children. He made each person in his image, and their lives are worth protecting.”

– Trillia Newbell, Director for Community Engagement, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention

“Immigrants are important to the military today because of the critical skills they possess, as well as their sheer numbers as we currently face a dire recruitment challenge.”

– Lt. Col. Margaret Stock, Original MAVNI Project Officer, Veterans for New Americans National Co-Chair and U.S. Army Reserve Veteran
