Prayer vigil counters hate speech in immigration debate

The faith leaders who spoke included Yvette Schock from the Interfaith Immigration Coalition, Bishop Thomas Wenski, Archdiocese of Orlando, Dale Schwartz, Chair of the Public Policy Committee for the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Bishop Price Singh, Episcopal Archdiocese of Rochester, and Bishop Minerva Carcaño, Desert SW Conference of the United Methodist Church. These faith leaders were joined by Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO).
