WASHINGTON, March 19 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The President of America’s largest Hispanic Christian Organization, The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals), Rev. Samuel Rodriguez will address Sunday’s Pro Immigration Reform Rally at the National Mall in Washington D.C. The NHCLC mobilized churches throughout the nation to participate. Hispanic Evangelicals are scheduled to travel from California, Texas, New Mexico, Washington, Nevada, Colorado, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Georgia, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois and Arizona in order to demonstrate support for immigration reform in 2010.
Hispanic National Association of Evangelical leaders unveiled a national “Just Assimilation Strategy” engaging the 25,434 member churches to serve both as local and national advocates of the plan that would address immigration reform in a matter that would engage both conservatives and liberals. Rodriguez will once again meet with White House officials to discuss the future of immigration reform on Monday.
“To the Democrats and our President we say, keep your promise. If not now when, if not you then who? To the Republicans we must ask whether you are the Party of Lincoln and Reagan or the Party of David Duke and Tom Tancredo? Finally, to the American people we say once again it’s time for a nation to rise up against injustice. Let us pass Just Assimilation Immigration Reform that will protect our borders, end illegal immigration and protect the American idea.”
The Hispanic NAE, NHCLC, recently profiled by CNN and Univision as America’s largest and preeminent Hispanic faith organization serves 16 million Hispanic Evangelicals and Born Again Christians via 25,434 annually certified member churches through the seven directives of Life, Family, Great Commission, Stewardship, Justice, Education and Youth.
