Latino Pastors in Oklahoma To Hold Prayer Vigil for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Tulsa, Oklahoma – On Saturday, June 23rd at 11:00a.m., Latino Pastors from all over the state of Oklahoma will gather to hold a prayer vigil at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Tulsa located at 1082 E., 31st Street. The National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC), the largest Latino Christian advocacy organization in the nation stands firmly in support of Senate Bill 1348 and the STRIVE Act (HR-1645) and has organized multi-state effort to mobilize Church leaders in support of a comprehensive solution to our nation’s broken immigration system.

”We thank Senator Harry Reid for allowing this bill to be considered and debated on its merits and we urge members of the Senate to pass this critical legislation. The millions of good hardworking people and our nation’s economy are depending on it,” said Reverend Miguel Rivera, President of CONLAMIC.

“Our leaders will be holding prayer vigils in Oklahoma, Georgia, New Jersey, Washington, DC, Florida and other states this month to demonstrate our commitment to comprehensive immigration reform,” added Rev. Rivera.

"Latino pastors from different faiths from Tulsa and throughout the state are gathering together in unity to pray for a solution to this critical issue and an end to the anti-immigrant sentiment. Together we will demonstrate the true power of faith of the church in effort to bring millions of Christian families out of the shadows,” said Rev. Orta.
