This is an honest question to all people advocating for the rights of "undocumented immigrants". Why do you think they are a righteous cause?
Those same people would not allow 20 strangers who just arrived at their home, to enter their front door without knowledge of disease,,,,, cleanliness, criminal intent or any other unknown.


Yet they want our country as a whole to be done that way!!

Some people feel that the one they turn away could be Christ. So no, none of your points that you made are going to matter a damn ... turning the person away is not going to deal with the issues you mention as those issues are here already.


Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Oh please Iím a Christian and you are totally in the wrong here. Helping a stranger does not mean being the worlds doormat.

I don’t think it’s right, I think the laws are wrong.

Don’t build a nation on immigration and then claim it sucks. Jesus lives next to mr. rauhmann and mr. katayama. All in a building owned by ms khaliya. None of them speak the same language; but they get along

Which means different things to different people yet, Christ is constant.

Leviticus 19:33-34 ESV

“When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.


btw: there is only one way, you're an American today ... never forget that.

This does NOT mean open borders no matter how hard you try to spin it.

How many generations back does your heritage go and where did they come from ... ? if people had never left their countries in ships to sail here ... America would not exist in the way that it does today.

btw: I just posted bible quotes; you take from it what you want, as that is how that works to begin with ... you're conscience, you're heart, you're guide. It is not a spin job as that would be something useless to try, utilizing God's word.

Oh, so this is a digital open borders vs closed borders thing? Cmon. Pro-immigration does NOT equal open borders. I hate this equivocation ****. I’d be against kicking hitler’s ass at this rate.

Internet connects us all. Well at least those who have access around the world. We can learn so much, if we care to.

And yet, people do not seem to get that.

Do you not get that legal immigration and illegal immigration ARE NOT THE SAME? No use in keeping this conversation going because obviously you donít.
