A Immigration Reform Pledge has been written by Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, and Robert Gittleson, Co-Founder of Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
This pledge calls on all candidates for elected office in local, state, and national races, particularly those running for President of the United States on both sides of the aisle, to commit to three basis points addressing the immigration reform issue confronting America.
The pledge asks candidates to sign this pledge that makes it clear they are for legal immigration supporting a practical federal solution to the country’s immigration problems that “recognizes the importance of immigration to the past, present, and future of the United States.”
The pledge states in part: I will not engage in rhetoric that exacerbates or polarizes the current immigration debate in our country; I will advocate for positions that are pro–legal immigration and pro–Hispanic American. This does not dilute my commitment to secure our borders, but instead denounces damaging anti-immigrant rhetoric; I will support a practical federal solution to our Nation’s immigration problems that recognizes the importance of immigration to the past, present, and future of the United States.
