Borders--Open or Shut

From Blog11
We failed to guard our Borders,
And now they're no longer open.
No one gets in or out.
No one climbs for the American dream.
Instead, there's just a memory
On this side of the Borders.
 
 
You must regard the foreigner who lives with you as the native-born among you. You are to love him as yourself, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt; I am Yahweh your God.   --Leviticus 19:34
 
Therefore, circumcise your hearts and don’t be stiff-necked any longer. For the Lord your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, mighty, and awesome God, showing no partiality and taking no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner, giving him food and clothing. You also must love the foreigner, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.  --Deuteronomy 10:16-19

Are you puzzled by this photo? This helps explain it.

Sadly, we're ignoring the right and wrong of the issue. As a result those who come for valid purposes cannot get permission to stay while those who intend evil are free to do as they please, and even helped by the system.
