If we lived in the North prior to The Civil War when the Fugitive Slave Act was in force which of us would have aided runaways or at least looked the other way and which would have turned them over for return to their owners?

Are you going to ask those immigrants who have Commited violent acts if they are such?

So by ignoring our laws yoi might also be harboring a rapist, thief,murderer. I live in a large population with a decent proportion of immigrants not as much as miami, etc but its there.

I am not asking as the president or the government. If you meet a family in your neighborhood and they work, maybe even go to your church and after you have known them a while you find they are illegals, do you turn them in?

Once illegal immigration is started, where is the logical red line at which it stops?
Where the liberal/progressive left wants it to end is the destruction of the representative elective process. Leftist support for illegal immigration is about one thing and one thing only, increasing their voter base to an insurmountable obstacle to ever electing another Conservative anywhere.

America is probably the only country in the world that has a party representing its citizens and that works to insure America has no respect for its own national security.

The Left wing politicians that pander to illegals and turn their electorate into sucklers on the nanny state don't live in those neighborhoods where the illegals they adore live. Those politicians don't have to worry about the drug epdemic those illegals bring into the country. Or the diseases the illegal children that are coming here now alone bring.

Basically it is that same old issue as with environmental polution companies. The conatminators live upstream.

I am finding it hard to think of anything more ridiculous than comparing the fact that reconciliation with God is only through Jesus Christ and justification for strong borders. Not anything one way or the other about the borders question. Just that using heaven's gate as an illustration is really bad.

Illegal immigration ends when there have been sufficient numbers of illegal aliens given citizenship so they can vote Democrat, and allowed to bring the rest of their families into the USA. (Who also become voters.) Then they will all vote Democrat and The USA will become the People's Socialist Republic of the United States of America and the Republicans will have successfully rendered themselves a completely irrelevant relic of the dream that was once America.

At that point illegal immigration will end. The Democrats will build a wall and man it with national guard to make sure that no more illegal aliens come in. They will have gotten what they wanted (changed the demographics) so no more illegal warm bodies will be required.

Popcorn anyone?

What would you all do in my shoes? My church has a substantial number of Hispanics. We have English/Spanish services often.
I haven't asked to find out who is "legal". Should I find if any are illegal and turn them in?
maybe you could sponsor a family and help them get legal ... maybe that is not how it is done anymore..

Christian author Jim Wallis thinks it is:

Let me put it more simply: Trump’s continuing focus on “the wall” to keep immigrants out was and is racist and is best understood as shorthand for candidate Trump’s appeal to racism for political gain. Donald Trump’s wall was one of his signature campaign ideas based on fear, based on blaming other people for our problems — and yes, built on the racism that was at the core of Trump’s campaign and is now at the core of his presidential administration. The wall was meant to be a racial statement, appealing to racial fear and stoking racial hate among his supporters. It’s time to call this wall what it is and was from the beginning: Trump’s is a wall built on racism. It was always a political appeal to a white base very susceptible and inclined toward racial politics.

In fact, a recent Washington Post study based on comprehensive election data quantified what I said throughout the election season: Racism was the strongest predictor of votes for Trump, more so than economic status or affinity for authoritarianism. Perusing the tweets on any given day that contain the hashtag #BuildTheWall, while incredibly ugly, is also instructive — as a toxic stew of open and unapologetic bigotry is frequently on display.

And this was from an alleged Christian writer.
I wonder if he can tell us what race is called "Illegal alien."

"He served on President Obama's White House Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships and was former vice chair of and currently serves on the Global Agenda Council on Values of the World Economic Forum." https://sojo.net/biography/jim-wallis
Oh! I see. He's a communist, globalist, Christian who makes his income exploiting anything he can identify as racism.

Well, maybe he's trying to make up for all the benefits he received from his white privilege.
