More than 300 religious leaders are reportedly writing President Donald Trump to urge him against eliminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Ending DACA protections would impact one of the fastest-growing demographics in evangelicalism, Christianity Today reported.

Hispanic Americans membership has surged in Pentecostal and Assemblies of God traditions as well as among Southern Baptists, CT reported.

The letters, which were organized by the Evangelical Immigration Table, will be sent to the president, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. and Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the Tampa Bay Times reported.

"Open the door," Gabriel Salguero, president of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition told followers last week, CT reported. "Perhaps they’re the next missionaries that you’re opening the door for."

The religious leaders' letters will also reportedly press Trump to work with lawmakers to pass legislation for Dreamers, The Hill reported.
