SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Mormon church leader says the faith is largely in line with President Barack Obama on what needs to be included in a comprehensive immigration bill. Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ governing First Presidency, joined 13 other faith leaders at a private meeting on the issue with Obama on Friday.

Uchtdorf told The Salt Lake Tribune that Obama talked about his principles concerning immigration and the president’s statements were “totally in line” with the faith’s values. Obama expressed support for a bill that would streamline the legal immigration system and provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Uchtdorf says the government should respond with compassion to illegal immigrants who have a long history in the U.S.
