An "emergency delegation" of Bishops and prominent religious leaders from Arizona flew to Washington to ask Sen. John McCain and White House officials to set politics aside and take immediate action on comprehensive immigration reform.

These religious leaders are on the front lines of the immigration debate, as their state enacts Arizona SB-1070 - an extreme measure that will likely lead to increased discrimination and racial profiling, and penalizes families and faith communities already living in fear. This draconian legislation, which has been denounced by religious leaders from across the theological, political and ideological spectrum, demonstrates the urgent need for political leadership from Arizona's Senators and the President to move on comprehensive immigration reform immediately - before other states follow in Arizona's footsteps.

Delegation Members:

Bishop Gerald Frederick Kicanas, Tucson Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church

Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño, Desert Southwest Conference of The United Methodist Church

Rev. Monsignor Richard William O'Keeffe, Episcopal Vicar, Yuma - La Paz Vicariate Immaculate Conception Parish

Rev. Dr. Gary D. Kinnaman, Pastor at Large, Phoenix-area and Chairman, AZ Governor's Council on Faith and Community Initiatives, 2008

Rev. Jan Olav Flaaten, Executive Director, Arizona Ecumenical Council
Rabbi John Andrew Linder, Temple Solel, Scottsdale, Arizona

Joseph David Rubio, Lead Organizer for Arizona, Industrial Areas Foundation
