Statement In Response to Judiciary Committee’s Approval of Judge Neil Gorsuch
Mark Gonzales, Founder and Executive Director of the Hispanic Action Network:
We have taken one step forward closer to addressing the single most important issue of last November’s Presidential election. Evangelicals of every race, voted on election day for Biblical values and now we can see how their voice is being heard in the halls of congress.
Despite what the media may say about Hispanics, we are a people with conservative values and Biblical foundations. National polls by organizations like Barna tell us that we are a pro-God, pro-life and pro-freedom people of many nations from central and south America. As immigrants, many of our families moved to this nation because of the constitutions timeless truth by which our nation is governed. We believe that a judge who will interpret the constitution as it is written, is in the best interest of our nation.
As one of the representative organizations for Hispanics across the nation, we endorse the appointment of Neil Gorsuch for the United States Supreme Court. We ask congress to move now in accordance with the voice of the people and to confirm him as our next Supreme Court Judge.
