The Hyprocrisy of Those Whoe Weepand Lament for Babies being Ripped from Their Mother
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, please help me to be more like Jesus each day. Help me to be kind to others, to care about others, to share the hope of the Gospel with others. I love Jesus and my greatest desire is to be more like my Savior each day. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!
The hypocrisy of those who weep and lament for babies being ripped from their mother!!!! The key to this hypocrisy is that they only weep and lament for “certain” babies!!!
The hot political football today is taking place on our southern border, as laws that were purposely and willfully ignored during the previous administration are being enforced. This has to do with people, many with babies and children, who come to this country illegally. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO ENTER THE UNITED STATES WITHOUT AUTHORZIED PAPERWORK. I challenge anyone to go to any other country without the proper visas and see what happens when you try to enter, or, if you sneak in, when you are caught!
The argument made by those who argue for open borders is that we have an obligation to take people fleeing from whatever calamity they claim. The say we are a nation of immigrants. That is true, however, we are a nation of LEGAL immigrants! Many coming here illegally are brining babies and young children. THE LAW states that those parents are to be prosecuted for entering the country illegally, and their babies and children are taken into the care of HHS to be united with family members of other legal guardians who are living here in the US legally.
Again, this is the LAW. The outrage is that unlike under President Obama, the law is now being enforced. This is being used for political points by those who advocate for open borders, primarily to bring in a new “underclass” that they ultimately see as voters who would obviously support them in the future. The reality is those who advocate for this type of free flow of people in and out of the country can go to Congress and pass new laws to reflect their point of view. The reality is they know those types of changes would NEVER become law.
Their sick game plan currently is to gin up outrage regarding the babies and children being separated from their parents due to their illegal activity. Those who advocate for open borders have found willing partners in the media to drive this outrage of babies and children being separated from their parents. As this new plan of attack is taking hold, you will see more and more of this in the news each day. They have also found partners in the religious community who are putting a “Biblical” face on this argument of babies and children being separated from their lawless parents.
Here is the GROSS HYPOCRISY!!! Those politicians and media entities driving this new approach to garner support for open borders are the very same politicians and media entities who advocate for and cheerlead for the slaughter of innocent babies!!! The very same politicians and media entities so saddened, outraged by babies and children being “ripped from the arms of their mothers,” are staunch supporters of the MURDER of apx. 4,000 innocent babies in this nation each and every day!!!
WHEN THOSE POLITICIANS AND MEDIA ENTITIES CRYING OUT FOR THESE BABIES AND CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL ALIENS START CRYING OUT FOR THE 4,000 INNOCENT BABIES SLAUGHTERED IN THIS NATION EACH DAY, I WILL TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY. UNTIL THAT TIME, THIS IS NOTHING TO THEM BUT PURE POLITICS!!!
What does God say about the immigration issue? The last I checked, there were laws in this nation governing how people who are not citizens of the United States can come here legally. It really confuses me why immigration is such a hotly debated issue. It is very simple. If you are in this country illegally, you should be deported back to your country of origin. I don't care if that means deporting 100 people, 1,000 people, or the apx. 12 million people who are in this country illegally, send them back to the country they came from!
Many argue that it is not reasonable to deport the apx.12 million people in this country illegally. It is not only reasonable, but if we don't then we should change the immigration laws to state anyone can come to this country without any restrictions. I assure you that if you were in any other country illegally, you would be deported. Try going to say, Mexico, or Japan, or most countries without proper documentation and see what happens to you!!!
I am well aware that people argue we need the 12 million illegal aliens to do jobs that others won't. It is also argued "big business" is all for illegal aliens since they can pay them far below fair market value. Again, this is not difficult. If a business is hiring illegal aliens, prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. There are laws on the books governing this type of practice by business, enforce them!
Those in the "religious left" who support the legalized slaughter of innocent babies, same-sex marriage, the enemies of Israel, and everything else God loves and stands for in the Bible, also support allowing illegal immigrants to stay despite the fact they broke the law to get here. They claim it is the compassionate thing to do and Jesus would be all for illegal aliens. Really? I don't know what Bible they read but the Lord said to obey those in authority over us. JESUS SAID TO OBEY THE LAW, NOT BREAK THE LAW!!!
People are free to believe whatever they want in regard to this issue, but the Bible is very clear. Nowhere in the Bible does it support breaking the law. This nation, like all nations, has very clear laws regarding how foreigners can come to this nation legally. Those who break the law should be deported immediately just like you would be deported if you were in another country illegally.
I have not even dealt with the national security issue at stake. Only God knows the number of Muslims who have entered this country illegally and have "blended in," simply waiting for the right time to carry out some terrorist act on our soil. We already know far too well the number of illegal aliens involved in criminal activities like drugs, guns, human trafficking, and kidnapping to name just a few.
THE ONE JOB THE GOVERNMENT MUST PERFORM IS SECURING THE SAFETY OF ITS' CITIZENS. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED MISERABLY DUE TO NOT ENFORCING THE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAWS THAT EXIST!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I realize that this is a passionate issue for many. Everyone is free to their own opinion on immigration, but I choose to go to our final authority in all issues, the Bible! God is clear that breaking the law is never acceptable. Those who have come to this country illegally have broken the law and should be immediately deported.
If Congress wants to change those laws, let them do it. But until they do, the government has a responsibility to enforce the laws that currently exist and protect the citizens of this nation from those who would come here illegally, many of those people coming here to commit other criminal acts, and no doubt, some of those who have come to commit acts of terror on our soil!
This is not a complicated issue. ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT EXIST! THAT IS WHAT JESUS WOULD SAY TO DO AND THE BIBLE COMMANDS!!!
