Prayer Vigil Set for Immigration Reform

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas nonprofit group is joining other grassroots organizations in a campaign for what it calls comprehensive immigration reform.

Sunflower Community Action says the “Keeping Families Together” campaign will be launched during a community prayer vigil at 7 p.m. Friday at Newman University in Wichita.

The group says it plans to call on U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran to support an overhaul of the system and work on a path to citizenship that allows families to stay together. It’s also asking Gov. Sam Brownback to oppose policies it considers hostile to immigrants.
