Faith Leaders Preach Tough Love to Migrant Parents

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama met with religious leaders in Texas this week in hopes of finding  a solution to the nation's border crisis.

Border Patrol agents have already detained more than 50,000 kids this year.

Children as young as 6 years old are crossing on their own, spurred on in many cases by parents hoping they can escape chronic violence or poverty or both.

Most of the children come from three countries: Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

One coalition of faith leaders that is working to resolve the immigration crisis is the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

Serving more than 40,000 churches in the U.S. and more than 500,000 worldwide, the NHCLC is launching a campaign to keep unaccompanied minors from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
 
NHCLC President Samuel Rodriguez talked more about these efforts and why his organization is preaching "tough love" to the parents of migrant children on CBN News Today, July 10.
