Uh; we have enough low class US citizens here; we def DON'T need more. ILLEGAL aliens ARE low class; the whole lot of them. Sheesh!

Sure. Treat illegal aliens, even the "kids", the same way we treat our lawbreakers. If that means jail on the spot, so be it.

Have you heard the expression "Charity starts at home"? Do you know what it means? It means that we take care of our own first and foremost. If there is anything left over, we help others. This country is deep in debt and we have many suffering Americans who aren't getting the help they need. They come first.

Jesus expected his followers to obey the law of the land and to render unto Caesar that which is his.

Illegal aliens do not obey the laws of this land. Nor do they render unto Caesar that which is his. Once they are in this country, they continue to break even more laws such as ID theft.

Seems to me they are being treated like royalty both those here illegally already and this new batch of so-called children. Instead of deporting them they get to stay here with promises of amnesty and no deportations.

[quote=Mr_Retired;35595898]Here in Tucson, the Church was told to stay away........"Pastors and churches have been banned from helping the thousands of illegal immigrant children housed in border detention facilities run by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, clergy in Texas and Arizona have reported."

This might be who they are trying to keep out, Southside Presbyterian. This is where the movement started back in the 80's, they should have gone to jail, but didn't. I barely remember the Sanctuary Trials, too busy with babies and stuff.

Not sure. Didn't Jeb Bush say that they did "for love", "pot Amor"?

They preach charity so now here's their chance.

Send them all to churches across the US.
you don't keep up much do you. Catholic charities are all over the world and have been helping people before you were born.
