The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), the largest Hispanic Christian organization representing over 40,000 U.S. churches and more than 16 million Evangelicals continues to urge the GOP to support some changes in immigration reform.
“Whether this nation secures its borders and values lies in the hands of Republican leaders in the House of Representatives,” said Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, NHCLC president. “GOP leaders have an opportunity to exhibit prophetic courage by passing immigration reform in a manner that advances an agenda that reconciles the rule of law with a non-amnesty process of integration.”
Recently, the organization joined leaders from around the nation in publicly thanking Senators who voted “yes” on immigration reform through a Politico advertisement.: : The issue continues to be a divisive one for the GOP leadership, and many in the Evangelical world, including: David Cerullo: of Inspiration Network speak regularly to Hispanic leaders.
“Members of the House that embrace reform are poised to make history by reconciling Abraham Lincoln’s justice imperative with Ronald Reagan’s conviction regarding immigrants,” Rodriguez added. “It was Reagan who said that immigrants really embody the future of America. True conservatism means that if we are to conserve the spirit of entrepreneurship, we need to welcome these immigrants. Now is the time!”
