The Bible: The U.S. Has Every Right to Shut Down Its Border

The Daily Stand

Reading the Bible you will find that national borders are to be recognized and respected.

Regressive evangelicals can be fooled just like anyone when it comes to what the Bible teaches about illegal immigration. To hear many evangelical leaders tell it, God is all for open borders and anybody who thinks otherwise is a bad Christian. But that’s not what we discover when we take a closer look at what the Bible actually says rather than what we want it to say.

Congress refuses to address hopelessly outdated immigration policies that require illegals be released into the interior of the United States as soon as they are apprehended, in the vain hope that they will return for an asylum hearing one day, years in the future. Things are so bad that the governor of New Mexico loaded up a caravan of illegal aliens herself and dumped them in Colorado.

Deprived of every other option by a spineless Congress and a tyrannical judiciary, the president has resorted to the use of tariffs to get Mexico’s attention. What the president has realized is that there is simply no way to control illegal immigration without making it Mexico’s problem instead of ours.

At this point, the U.S. is carrying all the burden and Mexico is reaping all the benefits. Some of those we take in are the dregs of their society. We feed them, house them, clothe them, and educate them though they pay no taxes. At the same time, the remittances they send back to Mexico comprise the biggest single component of the Mexican economy, surpassing even oil revenue. The entire state of affairs is intolerable and unsustainable.

But that’s not what we discover when we take a closer look at what the Bible actually says rather than what we want it to say. When Israel approached the Promised Land in its journey through the wilderness, Moses asked the kings of Edom and Moab for permission to pass through their territory on the way to Canaan and was denied – twice.

The king of Edom “would not listen” and the king of Moab “would not consent” (Judges 11:17). What did Moses do? Did he invade their land or sneak across their borders?

NO – the Bible says in Judges 11:18 he “went around the land of Moab and the land of Edom.”  In other words, he honored their borders and would not enter their sovereign territory without their permission. 

The Bible teaches us here and in any many other places that borders around countries are God’s idea, not man’s, and must be respected. When we protect our sovereign borders from an invasion of illegal aliens who enter without our permission, we are simply following the template laid down by God himself in his Word.

There is nothing wrong and everything right about insisting that the people of other nations honor and respect our borders. And the sooner we do it the better.

National Security Facts, Border Wall National Emergency vs Democratic Party and Mainstream Media Censorship

National Security:

UPDATE:

President Trump’s response to the Senate national emergency vote

Today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signed a resolution to disapprove of President Donald J. Trump’s national emergency for the crisis on our southern border.

The President had a one-word response for the Democrat-led bill: “VETO!”

The stakes couldn’t be clearer, as Vice President Mike Pence laid out in an interview with Fox News. “A vote against the President’s national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that’s happening at our southern border.”

This morning, three state Attorneys General explained the Constitutional authority President Trump used in declaring the national emergency. “Unlike President Barack Obama, who unlawfully used executive power to create new laws or rewrite laws Congress enacted, President Trump is lawfully using executive power to address a crisis worsened by CONGRESSIONAL INACTION,” Ken Paxton (R-TX), Curtis Hill (R-IN), and Jeff Landry (R-LA) write.

Top 5 Border Falsehoods Pushed by Congressional Democrats and the Media

Illegal immigration is not compassionate. It’s inhumane, unjust, and cruel. ~President Donald J. Trump

Left-wing Policies: ” [A] fervid but false solicitude [“compassion”] for the unfortunate over whom they thus gain mastery, and then enslave them. ~David O. McKay

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke before Congress yesterday about the security and humanitarian crisis on our southern border. Acknowledging that such a crisis exists would make Democrats accountable for working with President Trump to solve it. Their leaders have already gone on the record to say they will not.

Instead, they hope to keep a lid on the ugly, painful truths behind America’s broken immigration system. It is important to set the record straight.

MYTH #1: There is no crisis at the border.

FACT: We continue to face a surge in illegal immigration that has brought the border crisis to a breaking point.

  • There has been a massive surge in illegal migrants arriving at our border, with more than 76,000 apprehended or deemed inadmissible at a port of entry last month—the most of any February during the past 12 years.
  • This fiscal year, U.S. Border Patrol has seen a 97 percent increase in apprehensions compared to the same time period last year.
  • Even before this recent surge, former President Obama called the situation at our southern border “a humanitarian crisis” as early as 2014.

MYTH #2: The problem at the border used to be much worse.

FACT: Today, we face an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants that loopholes prevent from being returned quickly to their home countries.

  • The makeup of illegal immigration has completely changed from previous years. Now, record numbers of family units and minors are arriving at our border, and legal loopholes force them to be released into the interior of the country. Human smugglers know this, and these criminal enterprises routinely exploit these loopholes to smuggle children across the border as leverage.
  • By contrast, in FY 2000, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) apprehensions were primarily single adults and, as such, 95 percent of those apprehended were repatriated within hours.
  • Apprehensions of family unit aliens and Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) have surged by 338 percent and 54 percent respectively this year.

MYTH #3: A wall wouldn’t help because drugs are coming through ports of entry.

FACT: Not only do we not know the amount of drugs smuggled between ports of entry, but building the wall will help free up more resources to seize the drugs coming in.

  • Obviously, there are more drug seizures at ports of entry that are manned by security than remote areas of the border with limited law enforcement presence. That doesn’t mean drugs aren’t coming in between ports of entry.
  • A physical barrier allows law enforcement personnel on the ground to carry out their missions more safely and effectively, preventing more deadly drugs and criminals from crossing our border in undermanned areas.

MYTH #4: Law enforcement such as ICE and U.S. Border Patrol are the villains in this story.

FACT: The real villains are the vile cartels and smugglers who exploit loopholes in our immigration laws for their own horrific gain. Law enforcement is the front line against them.

  • The brave men and women who enforce our immigration laws and secure our border are working tirelessly to keep our communities safe.
  • The cartels have devastated American communities with deadly drug supplies.
  • The smugglers who profit from our weak borders and immigration laws have subjected migrants to horrific violence and abuse. Our border officers are the ones fighting to stop them.
  • Secretary Nielsen testified on March 6 that law enforcement must give pregnancy tests to all migrant girls 10 years or older as a result of regular sexual assault from smugglers and others on their journey.
  • One-third of the women making the trek to our border become victims of rape or other forms of sexual abuse.

MYTH #5: President Trump’s executive action on the border is overreaching, similar or worse to President Obama’s.

FACT: President Trump’s exercise of executive power is categorically different from the kind President Obama used to circumvent existing immigration law. 

  • President Trump acted under the clear authority provided under the National Emergencies Act to address the crisis at the border.
  • This is the literal and exact opposite of President’s Obama’s orders invalidating Congressional statute. President Obama violated Congressionally enacted law by effectively awarding lawful presence to those living in the country illegally and granting them affirmative immigration benefits—contravening a variety of clear-cut provisions in the Immigration and Nationality Act (such as 8 U.S.C. §1101, 1158, 1226, 1229b, 1231, 1325, and 1326).
  • Beyond violating the INA, the whole thrust of President Obama’s action was to facilitate activity Congress had expressly outlawed (e.g., illegal entry, illegal work, etc.).
  • By contrast, President Trump is fulfilling his core Article II duties to enforce our duly passed immigration laws and prevent foreign nationals from violating those laws en masse. Whereas President Obama could not find a single statute authorizing his Administration to issue DACA/DAPA (because none existed), President Trump’s emergency declaration is an explicit and straightforward invocation of authority delegated to the President by Congress.
  • Far from unprecedented, 60 national emergencies have been declared since Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1976, and 32 are still in effect today. The President’s Emergency declaration enforces existing law and carries out his sworn duty to uphold U.S. sovereignty and national security.
