A new group in Alabama, Faith Leaders for a Welcoming Alabama, has a new ad up on TV in the state denouncing the nation's harshest immigration law, for what it says is the negative impact on Alabama’s churches, farms, schools, children and families.
The ad, featuring Birmingham Baptist pastor Rev. Steve Jones, begins with him saying: "We believe in reaching out and ministering to our community. Yet under Alabama's immigration law, we could be prosecuted for following God's call to be good Samaritans."
The 30-second spot will air in the Montgomery area for the next two weeks.
