President Obama references Bible when justifying immigration order

“Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger — we were strangers once, too. My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too.” President Obama, November 20, 2014 while informing the American people of his executive order which grants amnesty to five million illegal immigrants.

The President avoided a long and complicated battle with Congress, especially since the Republican Party gained control of the Senate for 2015 and 2016, by using an executive order to broaden the acceptance of immigrants who may have come here illegally.

“Today, we have more agents and technology deployed to secure our southern border than at any time in our history. And over the past six years, illegal border crossings have been cut by more than half. Although this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years. Overall, the number of people trying to cross our border illegally is at its lowest level since the 1970s.  Those are the facts.”

Critics say that the efforts or pointless since deportation is seldom ever  an option and because Mexican families are sending over their children first.

The scripture references “Do not oppress” a foreigner several times in Exodus, then again in Jeremiah, Zechariah, but the border struggle of 2014 doesn’t exactly compare to Biblical times. Moreover, the “breaking of the law” argument against “illigal” immigration appears to have been ignored with his move.

Breitbart writes: “Obama has no such legal authority. He knows it. Obama’s executive amnesty is different in scope and kind from anything before it. Neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush pursued their amnesty programs in the complete absence of Congressional legislation. No president has ever legalized some 7 million illegal immigrants, as Obama has done over the past three years. This is unprecedented.”
