Radio Ad Urges Compassion toward Refugees
Ad to Air Before and After Tonight’s GOP Debate
LAS VEGAS, DECEMBER 15, 2015 — A new radio ad calls for compassion toward refugees and other immigrants.
The ad will air nationwide on more than 100 local Salem Radio affiliates before and after tonight’s Republican primary debate. Salem Radio is a co-sponsor of the debate, with host Hugh Hewitt among those who will ask questions.
“God calls us to care for [refugees], regardless of their religion and wherever they are,” Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, says in the ad. “Of course we must maintain our security. And we can do that without turning our backs on the neighbors here and around the world whom we are called to love.
“Let us call on our political leaders and candidates to protect Americans and protect the innocent. And let us engage in a conversation that honors our values as Christians and as Americans.”
