Kansas Prayer Vigil Set For Immigration Reform

By  | 

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.
