The pro-amnesty swamp creatures are scrambling.
After Donald Trump eliminated Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty scheme, establishment members of Congress, business leaders, celebrities, and the amnesty lobby all turned up the heat to press the administration to back down.
But one Senator got caught lying about the Bible in his hopes to advance open borders.
Florida’s Marco Rubio was one of the ring leaders of the 2013 Gang of Eight amnesty scheme.
A massive grassroots uprising tanked the bill and was an early sign his Presidential ambitions were doomed.
But he hasn’t given up on the idea of granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
When Trump planned to rollout his decision rescinding Obama’s illegal DACA amnesty, Rubio took to social media to jab the President and criticized the decision as un-Christian.
He cited a verse from the Book of Matthew to claim the Bible supports open borders.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me”; Matthew 25:35
But this is a false – and selective – reading of Scripture.
A group of Evangelical leaders wrote in a letter to Congress that the Bible does not call for open borders, but rather “wise welcome” and that God “condemns the destruction of borders and indigenous cultures.”
Conservative Review reports:
“Eighteen prominent evangelical leaders from various Christian and political organizations signed the letter, including CRTV host and Conservative Review contributor Steve Deace.
“We agree that immigration reform and DACA are difficult subjects,” the letter states. “God loves the foreigner. Indeed, God loves us all. It takes time to discern the balance of mercy and justice by which a nation thrives.”
The signing evangelicals took a strong stand against open borders and blanket amnesty for illegal immigrants, urging elected officials to remember their responsibility to “defend and uphold the Constitution and the rule of law.” “Though there are tragic stories on every side of illegal migration, for our elected officials, responsibility to oaths must prevail,” they write. “Law and order sustain stability and peace. A nation of wise rule grows strong enough to sustain care for the vulnerable in our midst.”
The letter charged pro-amnesty faith groups with using “selective” interpretations of scripture to support their position, ignoring parts of the Bible that support national sovereignty.
“While some faith groups use selective Bible words for open borders and amnesty, we consider the whole counsel of Scripture. We find that the Bible does not teach open borders, but wise welcome. We are to welcome the lawful foreigner, who, like a convert, comes as a blessing (e.g. Ruth and Rahab). We also find Nehemiah building walls to protect citizens from harm. In Isaiah 1, we see God condemning the destruction of borders and indigenous culture,” the letter states.
In conclusion, the EBI letter petitions President Trump, “while treating undocumented people kindly,” to “first and foremost honor often forgotten American citizens whose families have served our nation for many generations, and the patient people who have applied lawfully to come here and to become citizens of the United States. These lives also matter. These people also dream.”
Pro-amnesty advocates have told many lies over the years.
They falsely claim that illegal immigration has little to no impact on crime or wages.
But now Marco Rubio stooped to a new level by trying to assert that the Bible calls for open borders.
