"We are grateful to see American leaders taking on the complex issue of comprehensive immigration reform. Millions of undocumented people in this country, many through no fault of their own, have been trapped in a marginalized limbo with no clear way out," said, Dr. Carlos Campo, President, Regent University.
Campo concluded, "We urge leaders to make reforms that respect the rule of law and are administered with compassion and dignity for all involved."
In 2008, the NHCLC initiated the National Latino Evangelical Coalition for Immigration Reform. Today, the NHCLC ( www.nhclc.org) has expanded that coalition by launching the Hispanic Evangelical Justice Coalition in 2012 as a subsidiary with an expanded agenda in order to do justice in the name of Jesus.
The Hispanic Evangelical Justice Coalition exists to defend and promote respect for the imago Dei, as a foundation for the defense of fundamental human rights. The coalition will focus on the horizontal plane of the cross, the justice platform that includes addressing issues such as immigration reform, human trafficking, poverty alleviation and religious liberty.About The NHCLC The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the nation's largest Christian Hispanic organization, is the Hispanic Evangelical Association unifying, serving and representing millions in the Hispanic Born Again Community via 40,118 member churches by reconciling the vertical and horizontal of the Christian message through the 7 Directives of Life, Family, Great Commission, Stewardship, Justice, Education and Youth.
