Immigration

So Trump had another Twitter seizure over the weekend and proceeded to display his limited understanding of anything involved in the problem. For example, he doesn’t seem to be aware that DACA only applies to those who entered the US before the age of 16 and have lived in the US continuously since 2007. No one who entered the US after 2007 is eligible for the program.

Given that Trump and his minions think almost everything is “fake news” I would go to a source they can’t dispute. Since the Trumpers claim that the US is a Christian nation I’ll cite the Bible on foreigners. These citations from the King James Version of the Bible are timely as we are still in the week of Passover, which is the starting point of these laws.

Exodus 22:21
21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 19:33-34
33 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.

34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 24:22
22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the Lord your God.

Matthew 25:35-36
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

The verses from Matthew are part of the ‘entrance exam’ for Heaven.
