The Bible teaches wise welcome, Not Blanket Amnesty. Biblical teaching would give first consideration to foreigners applying to come to America as blessing, and LAWFULLY. I believe Blanket Amnesty of many millions more is Unwise. Amnesty is unkind to Americans who are currently looking but cannot find a job. Wisdom and kindness would bring millions of jobs to America before more competition for scare jobs. Biblical wisdom would protect Americans from open borders and the risks associated with Amnesty; illegal entry into the country by violent Islamists, narco gangs and those who knowingly enter with dangerous diseases like Ebola ILLEGAL ENTRY PERIOD. Our goal is not hostility, but hospitality.
The United States, has been discovering the hard way that admitting people with incompatible cultures is an irreversible decision with incalculable consequences. Comprehensive immigration reform’ means doing everything all together in a rush, without time to look before we leap, and basing ourselves on abstract notions about abstract people.
God loves us all and yet nowhere in Scripture do we find support in God’s teaching for Blanket Amnesty. Rather, we see the respect of boundaries, borders and admonitions to remember and to advance the teachings of Godly wisdom for human and cultural thriving. We see welcome of the lawful immigrant who comes as blessing, such as Ruth and the Good Samaritan. And we see Ezra and Nehemiah leading a nation in the rebuilding of walls for cultural healing and renewal.
While the Bible teaches us to be kind to the sojourner or “resident alien,” it also teaches that kindness to the sojourner Should not to be Injustice to Local Citizens and their unique culture. To steward and cultivate, whether a garden or a nation, involves wisdom and discernment. We, like our Founders, want to Conserve what is True, Good and Beautiful. We want to Nurture OUR Nation that would Welcome Our Children as well as the well-intended sojourner. That would mean making distinctions. Lawlessness with escalating violence and incivility cannot yield peace. Freedom for one is Not Slavery for another unless one chooses that sacrifice for oneself. 🩸 It is unkind to force the debt of servitude on millions of Americans. We should secure our borders, pay off our national debt, give jobs to millions of unemployed Americans, and become a Productive Nation, once again, in order to sustain voluntary generosity to our neighbors and to the world. This goodness was once America’s greatness. IMMIGRATION AMNESTY CREATES AN INJUSTICE TOWARD THOSE WHO HAVE INSTEAD WORKED THROUGH THE LEGAL PROCESS TO BECOME CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. No to BILL 5038. Leniencies, as evidenced by current American immigration policies will eventually bankrupt the treasury. This happens when non-citizens are the recipients of endless entitlement grants, health benefits, employment insurance, education scholarships, etc. — all given to those who have never pledged allegiance to the flag that they willingly take from! A nation with overly lenient immigration policies will always end up insolvent. It’s difficult to manifest compassion when you are bankrupt yourself. Illegal aliens should not be allowed unregulated entry into a country. Borders and oceans should be impenetrable so as to discourage illegals entrance.
Foreigners should not be able to partake of any governmental entitlements. (Governments should not be in that business to begin with.) Nor should they be allowed to have any licenses, legal identification, or enrollment in any institutions.
