Usurping the Law for Personal Gain and Political Power
The mayor of San Francisco has said that San Francisco should not do business with Arizona because of the state's new illegal alien law. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman is banning city workers from traveling to Arizona on government business. Coleman's spokesman says the mayor "agrees with those who want to send a message to the state of Arizona that this not the American way." The mayor's ban does not extend, however, to the Arizona company that owns and operated some 20 red light cameras in Columbus or the purchase of 20 more of the money generating devices--must be the American way getting in the way.
It already has been documented that senior officials in the administration of the man who occupies the Oval Office are condemning the bill, but have not read it. They claim that it is un-American to protect the borders of this country if it means that people have to prove they are here legally. The motivation for crying foul for the elected Democratic officials throughout the nation is clearly vote buying over national security concerns. The entire amnesty concept is that the poor class of illegal aliens entering the United States will become so dependent on government entitlements that they will always vote for the political party that keeps the spigot open on the flow of taxpayer funded milk and honey.
The leftists that refuse to secure America's borders claim their belief is based in the Bible interpreted as social justice. They say the Bible says to treat strangers with love. There are over 120 mentions of how to deal with "strangers", also interpreted as "aliens," in the Bible. Using quotes from the Bible, naïve evangelical Christians are buying into the dogma that illegal immigration is Biblical. They quote verses like Leviticus 19:34, "But the stranger that dwells with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself." But they conveniently ignore that the Lord, in instructing how to treat aliens in the Bible, repeatedly commands that the aliens embrace and live by the laws of nation.
Exodus 12:49 says, "One law shall be to him that is home born, and unto the alien that sojourns among you." Leviticus 19:26 says, "You shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any alien that sojourns among you." Leviticus 24:22 says, "You shall have one manner of law, as well for the alien, as for one of your own country: For I am the Lord your God." There are many more such references. It appears that requiring people to be in America legally is repulsive to liberal office holders. It makes one wonder who among them has usurped the laws of the nation to get where they are and to stay there.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
