Stand with Immigrants

It seems to me that most people who have strong feelings against UNDOCUMENTED workers – have never met one.

They likely do not know a family struggling in Mexico, needing the money wired each month so that they can survive  –  Or do not know a family believing GOD allowed them to get here, often they are a family full of love and “conservative family values”-

They most likely do not know the young man who has gone into gangs and drug dealing, because they find no other way.   Their familes brought them here when they were young – but now they cannot work – go to college and have no future because we refuse to embrace these people – and call this exclusion from society –  “JUST”!

People wonder why latino immigrants frequently don’t learn ENGLISH – WOULD you learn a language if at any moment you might have to leave?

If we provide a pathway to citizenship (including fines for “Illegal” entry) we could end 90% of this mess tomorrow.

God was clear in his commands to Israel – welcome the alien – because I am GOD!

Lev. 19: 33 – 34  ” ‘When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him.   The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.
