“If you talk to 100 Californians, 100 of them will say we are living in unprecedented times. There are questions about public health and freedom, questions about prosperity and poverty, and there are crises in every direction. We have a housing crisis in California, we have a drug crisis in California, a homeless crisis in California, and in a state blessed with more natural resources than almost every country in the world, we haven’t been able to find sustainable solutions for clean water, forest management and clean air,” said Rev. Samuel Rodriguez. “Increasingly, California’s vast Hispanic community is faced with the prospect of determining the future of our state in all respects. It is a quintessentially Californian constituency in its diversity and in its values. We are pro-immigrant and we believe in reforming our broken immigration system. We are advocates for justice but extend our advocacy for justice — because of our Evangelical and Catholic faith — to the fundamental right to life of the unborn. We are a pro-freedom, pro-justice, pro-religious liberty, pro-life constituency present in every corner of our state, and, in all likelihood, we will determine its future, including this recall election. So it’s essential that Latinos in California have the opportunity to hear directly from Mr. Elder, and we hope that Gov. Newsom will also accept an invitation from the NHCLC, so California’s Latinos can make an informed decision.”
