  • Why Building a Border Wall Is a Morally Good and Biblically Justifiable Action

    Is building a wall on our border a morally good action? As a professor who has taught biblical ethics for 41 years, I think it is – in fact, the Bible itself repeatedly views protective walls with favor. WALLS GIVE PEACE AND SECURITY In the world of the Old Testament, people built walls around cities to protect themselves from thieves, murderers, and other criminals, and from foreign invaders who would seek to destroy the city. People could still enter the city, but they had to do so by the gate, so that city officials would have some control over who...
  • “Trump is planning to build more family detention centers – literally prison camps” Gavin Newsom

    No, Jay. No way. News just broke that Trump is planning to build more family detention centers – literally prison camps for children and families – here in California. They'd hold almost 100,000 people. We cannot let him so much as break ground on a single one. Trump and his aides want us to think they're slowing things down, fixing the problem they made – but they're actually ESCALATING their efforts to criminalize immigrants, tear more families apart, and incarcerate them indefinitely, in OUR state. It's hard to stomach the mere idea of it. It's horrifying. Inhuman. Evil. We have...

    “If they take my son from me, I would die,” one woman, who was seeking asylum when she was turned away from the border, told BuzzFeed News. REYNOSA, Mexico — Families waiting inside Mexico to cross into the US are increasingly nervous as reports of the child separations enforced under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance policy" sow fear and anger on the other side of the border. Most of the families affected by Trump’s policy are, like them, from Central America, where gangs frequently extort small businesses, forcibly recruit pre-teen kids, and burn houses down as a form of punishment...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | May 9, 2018 | by Steve Chapman
    From the beginning of his campaign for president, Donald Trump portrayed illegal immigration as a forest fire that threatens to spread rapidly and engulf us all. Mexicans, he charged, are “bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” He thought Americans should be afraid. The president and his attorney general ignore the real dangers posed by most foreigners here illegally: They will fill jobs that Americans don’t want, learn English, pay taxes and stay out of trouble. Chilling, huh? The president relishes lurid tales of the criminal gang MS-13. Last year, he said: “They stomp on their victims. They beat them...

    The Trump administration will require 57,000 Honduran people to return to their home country, after having lived in the U.S. with protected status since a 1999 hurricane, according to a report Friday morning. The administration will give Hondurans 12 to 18 months to return home, according to McClatchy. Hondurans are the second-largest national group of people who benefit from TPS. A DHS spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen "has not yet made a decision." But a decision is due by July 6 and the government has yet to formally announce the reported policy change. Elaine Duke, former...

    A caravan of Central American migrants whose trek across Mexico infuriated President Donald Trump has decided not to travel to the US border, leaders said Tuesday. "We will wrap up our work in Mexico City," said Irineo Mujica, the head of the migrant advocacy group People Without Borders (Pueblo sin Fronteras). "We have support teams at the border if there are people who need assistance there, but they would have to travel on their own," he told AFP in the town of Matias Romero, in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. The just over 1,000 migrants who currently make up...

    Editor's Note: John Schlafly co-wrote this column.During the Easter weekend, when many Americans were watching the college basketball championships, President Donald Trump kept his eye on America’s southern border. It’s long overdue for a president to defend our borders. “Getting more dangerous,” Trump tweeted on Easter Sunday before attending church with his wife, Melania, in Palm Beach. “‘Caravans’ coming.” The president was referring to the “caravan” (their word) of some 1,200 men, women and children who were spotted in southern Mexico, heading toward the United States. Photographs showed a massive column of people walking north, herded by a few vehicles...

    The head coordinator for the 1200 strong illegal migrant caravan marching through Mexico to the United States told the migrants on Tuesday that President Donald Trump want to nuke the caravan. The Washington Post quoted Mujica speaking to the migrants gathered on a soccer field in Matias Romero where the Mexican government has stopped the caravan to process the migrants and give them travel documents. “We are scared, just like you,” Irineo Mujica, the head coordinator of the migrant caravan, told the assembled group through a megaphone Tuesday morning. “Now President Donald Trump has said that he wants to hit...

AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT INVASION Mexican authorities said in a statement late Monday that they were offering protections to some of the refugees and deporting others. By late Monday, the government said they had deported 400 already. What ever happened to Travel Visa's and Passports? If I went to Mexico without a Passport guess what would happen?

    MATIAS ROMERO, MEXICO — After days of walking from Mexico’s southern border, the caravan of hundreds of migrants that has drawn President Trump’s Twitter ire has now halted on a brown-grass soccer field, its participants unsure and anxious about the way forward. The men and women, most from Central America, were squatting Tuesday in a walled public park while government officials decided their fate. “We are scared, just like you,” Irineo Mujica, the head coordinator of the migrant caravan, told the assembled group through a megaphone Tuesday morning. “Now President Donald Trump has said that he wants to hit us...

    The White House said Tuesday night that President Trump planned to deploy the National Guard to the southern border to confront what it called a growing threat of illegal immigrants, drugs and crime from Central America after the president for the third consecutive day warned about the looming dangers of unchecked immigration. Mr. Trump’s advisers said on Monday that he was readying new legislation to block migrants and asylum seekers, including young unaccompanied children, from entering the United States, opening a new front in the immigration crackdown that he has pressed since taking office. But in remarks on Tuesday that...

    RUSH: Well, it looks like President Trump has been proven right again. You know, the past couple of days I have been looking at all of these reports on how the Mexican government has been organizing the buses for this caravan of people. By the way, this caravan of people is another organized protest, another organized rally, and the people in the march, the people in the caravan have nothing to do with it, other than to keep walking. But they nothing to do with organizing it. I will demonstrate this in mere moments. But before I get to that,...

    Parties that support the Vatican's stance on immigration tanked in the Italian electionsThe Vatican, through Cardinal Parolin, has signalled its concern at the results of Sunday’s elections in Italy. Cardinal Parolin was attending a conference on migration, where he let it be known “that the Vatican realized that the election results meant it would have to continue “a work of education” about the dignity and rights of immigrants.” That does not sound much like the Vatican changing tack on its current stance about welcoming all who come.In fact, Parolin went on to say: “Citizens must feel safe and protected but...

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota -- A family in Minneapolis says their father was targeted by ICE after speaking up for immigrants' rights. Luis Candela, who is an undocumented immigrant, was arrested last month. Luis' family says he was on the right track in life, an active father and talented chef. He got in trouble a decade ago for a robbery, serving seven months - a case that's been closed. He came to the U.S. from Mexico. "My parents came here for job opportunities, for security and being here we can bring our families and have a better future for our children," said...

    SEATTLE - A longtime activist for illegal immigrants in the Northwest says she herself is now facing deportation. Maru Mora-Villalpando, a native of Mexico City who has been in the U.S. for more than 25 years, said Tuesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has given her a notice to appear before an immigration judge. She says she believes ICE is targeting her because of her activism. She leads an organization called Northwest Detention Center Resistance, which was created in 2014 when detainees at the privately run immigration detention facility in Tacoma began a series of hunger strikes to protest...

    Calling multiculturalism an “illusion”, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán slammed the Merkel government’s “chaotic and anarchic” migrant policy, which led to a flow of “Muslim invaders” entering the European Union. Responding to the suggestion that Hungary was not showing sufficient “solidarity” with the European Union because Germany accepted 2 million migrants but Hungary will not accept 2,000, Prime Minister Orbán told German tabloid BILD on Sunday: “The difference is: They wanted the migrants. And we do not.” “We do our work by protecting the external Schengen border with Serbia. That cost us an extra one billion euros since 2015 and...

    Germany wants to support rejected asylum-seekers who voluntarily move back to their home countries with a one-time payment of 3,000 euros ($3,570). The Interior Ministry says those who qualify can apply by a Feb. 28 deadline and they would get the money once they return home. Migrants who agree to go back even before their asylum request is rejected have already been offered 1,200 euros per adult and 600 euros per child under a different program for almost a year. They are now eligible to apply for both programs.

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...

    Edith Rivera loved her life in Hampton, Iowa, but for many undocumented immigrants like her, this summer has been a season of fear or flight. It was quitting time. Edith Rivera took one last lunch order, dropped off a basket of tortilla chips and set off from work, heading out to the farm roads where other immigrants feared to drive. Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no driver’s license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet....

    The Trump administration has told the Supreme Court that a lower court ruling earlier this week altering an executive order on immigration would bring thousands more refugees into the county and requires the justices’ “immediate intervention,” according to filing documents obtained early Saturday by Fox News. In a victory for the administration, the Supreme Court late last month lifted key components of an injunction against President Trump's temporary travel ban on refugees and visitors from six mostly-Muslim countries.
