Several leaders of the Roman Catholic, United Methodist and Episcopal churches in Alabama have written Alabama's governor, saying that they are praying he will show "great political courage" and support repeal of Alabama's immigration law.

The church leaders sent the letter Monday to Gov. Robert Bentley and made a copy public.

They said, short of repeal, they pray the governor will work for revisions in what they call "an unjust and unfair law."

Those signing the letter include Roman Catholic Archbishop Thomas Rodi, Episcopal Bishop Henry Parsley, and United Methodist Bishop William Willimon.

A spokeswoman for the governor said she had not yet seen the letter.
