The Latest George Soros Group: The Evangelical Immigration Table
A number of evangelical leaders in America joined on to the Evangelical Immigration Table early. They felt a calling and need to help. But more and more of them are backing away now that they know it is just another left-wing George Soros funded group designed to appear both moderate in its intentions and ecumenical in its outreach.
It is not.
In fact, as Marjorie Jeffrey writes
EIT reportedly does not legally exist and is an arm of the George Soros funded National Immigration Forum, which as a “neutral third-party institution” facilitated EIT’s $250,000 radio ad campaign urging Evangelicals to back mass legalization of illegal immigrants.
So if the EIT is just a front, then what exactly is the National Immigration Forum? NIF received over three million dollars from Soros’ Open Society Institute (OSI) in 2009-2010 alone, as well as one million dollars from the left-wing Ford Foundation. Furthermore, Sojourners is also a recipient of Soros’ money, and their President and CEO, Jim Wallis, is prominent within EIT.
It was clever attempt to bait evangelicals to again compromise themselves in favor of what will ultimately be a left-wing political organization. How can I say this? Well, donors do not put their money where their hearts are not. George Soros would not contribute to a political cause unless it pushed left.
