Immigration Witness in Washington DC


Bishop Julius Calvin Trimble and Minerva Carcaño, who co-chair the denomination’s Interagency Immigration Task Force, will be among faith leaders, undocumented immigrants and labor leaders who will gather Feb. 17 — President's Day — to pray in front of the White House as President Obama nears a record-breaking two millionth deportation, expected to occur in early April. They are risking arrest at a pray-in at Lafayette Park at 1 p.m.

Hear Bishop Trimble talk about Monday's events in a phone conversation with Dr. Art McClanahan
