April 2021 – Among President Joe Biden’s early barrage of executive orders was one to stop border wall construction. The order drew quick response from Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.
“Secure the border,” Rodriguez began. “If Joe Biden doesn’t want to continue building the wall, make sure you incorporate infrared technology … making certain that that wall does exist.”
Rodriguez also recommends legalizing immigrants known as Dreamers, those who were young children with no choice when their parents came to the U.S. illegally years ago. However, he says the illegal parents should not be legalized.
“There should be a price to pay,” he said. “You came here illegally … and that price is you’re never going to become a citizen.”
On another subject, Rodriguez believes the increase of Hispanic voters is not a threat to conservatives. He pointed out that new waves of Hispanics voted for Donald Trump in 2020 because they are strongly pro-life and anti-socialist.
