Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference Speak Out: ‘Fund the Wall and Give Us DACA’January 8, 2019
SACRAMENTO, CA – In response to the passing of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez issues the following statement:
“President George H.W. Bush leaves behind a seemingly irreplaceable void in the fabric of America’s political landscape. He was a decorated war hero, venerated statesman, devoted father and loving husband. While all of this is true, it falls well short of paying proper tribute to the total sum of a man whose legacy is quite literally unparalleled in modern American history.
“In a time where Washington can seem more fractured and divisive than ever, President Bush’s life serves as a powerful reminder that we can indeed come together, regardless of our differences, for the common good of all Americans. He was that rare politician who possessed such integrity, honor and good humor, that he was embraced and respected by Americans of all political parties and persuasions. In so many ways he represented the very best of us, and we are all blessed by his extraordinary life of public service. May we honor President H.W. Bush’s memory by modeling his grace, dignity and kindness toward our fellow Americans.”
‘Rev. Samuel Rodriguez is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, executive producer of “The Impossible” with 20th Century Fox, and bestselling author of “Shake Free.” He has been named by CNN and Fox News as “the leader of the Hispanic Evangelical movement” and TIME Magazine nominated him among the 100 most influential leaders in America.
The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference is recognized and identified by Time Magazine, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Christianity Today, Charisma Magazine, NBC, Telemundo, Univision, Fox News and CNN as America’s largest and most influential Hispanic/Latino Christian organization with 40,118 certified member churches in the United States and chapters in Latin America.
