Since 2006, a number of evangelical Christian leaders and organizations have become allies to the movement for comprehensive immigration reform in the United States. Starting with the historical context of the Civil Rights movement, this study will examine points of contact and divergence among the positions and practices of white, black and Latino evangelicals regarding the issue of Latino immigration. Notable nuances within and among the groups exist due to theological traditions, lived experience, socio-economic considerations and demographics. In order to become more effective allies in the comprehensive immigration reform movement, evangelical Christians need to address a number of challenges as individuals, churches, and denominations.
