NHCLC President, Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, Releases Statement on Eric Cantor’s Defeat
Correspondingly Tuesday night, non-amnesty immigration reform supporter Senator Lindsey Graham triumphed in his South Carolina Republican primary re-election. In that regard, while a recent study by the Public Religion Research Institute indicates that there exists a bit of angst amongst conservatives regarding a path to citizenship, the majority of Americans do support a non-amnesty immigration reform solution that legalizes and integrates individuals currently undocumented while simultaneously securing our borders. Finally, just a few weeks ago, the Tea Party came out in favor of immigration reform, prompting the question, “Is the Republican Party suffering from multi-personality disorder and short-term memory loss?” Now is the time to pass immigration reform – for the good of America, for the good of God-fearing families and for the good of all.” The NHCLC is the largest Hispanic Christian organization representing millions of Evangelicals, 40,118 U.S churches and more than 500,000 churches across the globe. Seeking to reconcile evangelist Billy Graham’s message of salvation with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s march of prophetic activism, the NHCLC emphasizes “7 Directives” of Life, Family, Compassionate Evangelism, Stewardship, Justice, Education and Youth.
