The hungry and the poor are (and always have been) a priority for Jesus.
Are they a priority for the 2016 U.S. presidential candidates?
Over 100 Christian leaders have asked each presidential candidate, “What would you do as president to offer help and opportunity to hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world?” These videos, produced by the campaigns, are their response. The Circle of Protection presents them without comment or endorsement. Additional candidate videos will be added as they are received.

EVANGELICAL STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM
Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in America. Initiatives to remedy this crisis have led to polarization and name calling in which opponents have misrepresented each other’s positions as open borders and amnesty versus deportations of millions. This false choice has led to an unacceptable political stalemate at the federal level at a tragic human cost. We urge our nation’s leaders to work together with the American people to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and that will make our nation proud. As evangelical Christian leaders, we call for a bipartisan solution on immigration that:
- Respects the God-given dignity of every person
- Protects the unity of the immediate family
- Respects the rule of law
- Guarantees secure national borders
- Ensures fairness to taxpayers
- Establishes a path toward legal status and/or citizenship for those who qualify and who wish to become permanent residents

“Racism is a sin. It hurts all. It violates the image of God in us. Racism is present throughout our society, including the church. All societies suffer from the debilitating effects of racism.
We are image bearers of God, and are all created in His likeness. There is no room for racial discrimination in the kingdom of God.
We recognize that we live in an imperfect and sinful world. When a person is hurtful through their words, action or inaction, it is our duty as a church to shine the light of God’s love.”
Quote from senior leader of the Christian Reformed Church in N.A.
