Soros-Funded Evangelical Immigration Propaganda Has Infected Evangelicals at an Alarming Rate

The Evangelical elitists have been relentlessly pushing pro-open borders propaganda on Christians in the name of “loving your neighbor” and “caring for refugees.” Russell Moore, along with other well-known established Evangelical leaders and groups, have been operating through a Soros-funded think-tink called the Evangelical Immigration Table to advance this agenda.

The Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) is a front group for the National Immigration Forum (NIF). The EIT is not an entity that even legally exists in the corporate structure. It is nothing more than a group of leaders who, at the behest of the NIF, carry out the agenda of the NIF into Evangelical circles. It’s that simple.

In 2013, Ali Noorani — the executive director of the National Immigration Forum and a man who Russell Moore worked with regularly during his tenure at the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) — stated that the NIF received about 10 percent of its funding from Soros’ Open Society Foundation. This was reported at TheBlaze and the information is confirmed if one takes the time to dig through the 990 filings. These filings date as far back as 2006 and even earlier and show that Soros’ Open Society Foundation has granted hundreds of thousands of dollars to the NIF over the years.

And it’s not just that the NIF is funded directly by the Open Society Foundation either. But the NIF is also supported by MALDEF (Latino Legal Voice for Civil Rights in America), the ACLU, the National Immigration Law Center, La-Raza, and the AFL-CIO which are all funded by George Soros. If you really want to dig into the facts of the National Immigration Forum’s funding and George Soros’ involvement, here’s an actual trustworthy fact-checking site that lays out the actual facts.

So, how does the NIF control the EIT? The EIT told Breitbart in an email that they selected the National Immigration Table to “facilitate its work.” The email reads,

The Evangelical Immigration Table functions as a coalition of partners and does not exist as its own non-profit.

The principal organizations that serve as the coalition’s leadership are listed on our website and include Bread for the World, the Christian Community Development Association, CLUE Orange County, Esperanza, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the National Association of Evangelicals, the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, Sojourners, World Relief and World Vision.

The organizations that make up the leadership of the Table are predominantly 501(c)3’s but some have affiliated 501(c)4’s.

Funding for our work comes from a variety of sources including the organizations that make up the leadership of the Table as well as other individuals and institutions that believe in our message.

Early in the formation of the Table’s work, the leadership sought a neutral third-party institution, the National Immigration Forum, to help facilitate our work.

In an email to Breitbart, the EIT said that they do not exist as their own legal entity, the Southern Baptist Convention’s ERLC (formerly led by Russell Moore) is a leader, and that the National Immigration Forum — which receives 10 percent of its funding according to their own executive director — is who facilitates the work of the EIT and that the NIF is “neutral.”

To make matters worse, Jim Wallis of the highly liberal Sojourners who is also a leader of the Evangelical Immigration Table admitted to receiving funding from Soros after initially denying it. In an article now deleted from Christianity Today but still available on archive.org, Wallis stated,

I should have declined to comment until I was able to review the blog post in question and consulted with our staff on the details of our funding over the past several years. Instead, I answered in the spirit of the accusation and did not recall the details of our funding over the decade in question.

These are the Evangelical elites pushing the pro-open borders and amnesty propaganda into Evangelical circles and one can hardly walk into a Southern Baptist church without being bombarded by it. Yet, despite these efforts, an overwhelming majority of Evangelicals, 78 percent, still believe the borders need to be secured, yet believe that those who entered illegally should be offered amnesty.

According to a poll published at LifeWay, “Nearly 4 in 5 evangelicals (78%) would support changes to immigration laws that both increase border security and establish a process to earn legal status and apply for citizenship for those currently in the U.S. unlawfully.”

One of the primary means the Evangelical Immigration Table uses to manipulate Christians into being on board with their amnesty and open borders agenda is to redefine what it means to be a “refugee,” and essentially label everyone who shows up at the unsecured Southern border as “refugees,” rather than illegal immigrants. Thes groups now include those who are “fleeing poverty” as “refugees.” By doing so, most Evangelicals would agree that the U.S. has a moral responsibility to accept them.

Matthew Soerens, one of Soros’s mouthpieces at the EIT urges Christians not to look to conservative commentators for actual sound advice on the negative impacts of rampant immigration, but rather listen to him. “Evangelical Christians should be looking to the Bible—not any political party’s platform, media personalities or even a survey of fellow evangelicals—to determine how they respond to the arrival of immigrants to their communities,” said Matthew Soerens, national coordinator of the Evangelical Immigration Table. Of course, Soerens said he and other leaders worked to develop additional resources focused on a “biblical perspective on immigration.” You can rest assured that his resource is anything but “biblical.”
