I haven’t commented on the latest effort by immigration lawyers to force America to accept illegal immigrants from south of our border JUST because they insist on coming here. Not at all equating them with the “wretched refuse” of Emma Lazarus, America is not the dump for all the people from Catholic countries who seek to live here.
I’ve said it before; I’ll say it now: Roman Catholicism is the worst enemy Catholics in Catholic-controlled countries have. The Curia has multiplied its wealth while leaving the vast majority of its people in poverty. It will continue to further disenfranchise them to enrich the Church—which is the bureaucracy, not the people. Mexico, controlled by the Catholic Church, depends on America to be the safety-value for its economic problems. Instead, revolution should occur in Mexico to force economic reforms that give opportunities to most, not a few, Mexicans. American outsourcing can’t and shouldn’t be expected to do it..
Now...a word about “faith” leaders being at the Mexican border demanding protection of illegal immigrants and their asylum. Why do those “people of faith” think America has a responsibility to provide for Mexicans and people on South? We didn’t invite those immigrants to walk from deep South America to the Mexican border. We have no responsibility to protect them on their way or to provide sanctuary.
Look at it from a Biblical standpoint. In one way alone America is like the Kingdom of God. God’s Heaven is open to all who obey his rules for entering it. It doesn’t matter to him that many want to enter but don’t want to obey his rules; who want to decide for themselves how it will be done. He won’t accept them Matthew 7:21-23. Case closed: obey his Son, you’re saved; refuse to obey his Son, go to Hell.
In the same way Protestant America is a land of opportunity for all people that Catholic countries are not—and can never be. But...to enter America rules must be obeyed, not broken. Quotas must be observed, not disregarded. And anyone observing neither can’t come in. They will be sent back. Without apologies from our government. Whatever greedy immigration lawyers want or misguided religionists say. As a sovereign power, we WILL defend our borders!
Another perspective should make this clear. Most of the religionists at the border kneeling and praying and demanding open borders have specific requirements for anyone requesting membership in their religious bodies. No one can FORCE his way, in defiance of the rules, just because he wants to belong. He might be able to attend, to sing, to fellowship, to give, but he won’t qualify as a member! Just so, let all illegal aliens stop at the Mexican-American border and look across. That’s all they’re entitled to. They can come over only by obeying the rules. Anyone who doesn’t will be sent back, just as anyone wanting to be in a religious body will be shown the door OUT if he wants membership on his own terms. Indeed, such people will be encouraged to go to the Unitarian Church. They’re too concerned listening to what others believe to have personal convictions.
