In the Daily Caller story about the "Evangelical Immigration Table", a Treason Lobby group on the Religious Left, I don't see any support for their claim that there's any increase in enthusiasm for legalization among evangelical voters.
There's enthusiasm for legalization among evangelical preachers, and enthusiasm for legalization among evangelical bureaucrats (which is who issues these reports) but none among evangelical voters, who tend to be regular Americans.

We've written about this repeatedly. For the full scoop on this group, see The "Evangelical Immigration Table"—A Treason Lobby Front, by Allan Wall, and more here.
