“For I Was a Stranger” debate #3: Proofobia

By Dave Leach – “Proofobia”: calling an interpretation “wrong” without offering an alternative; irritation with a request for evidence. This is the rest of my interaction with Sandra Lee Smith. The first portion was #2 of this series, about the label “lawbreakers” applied to those for whom our laws have made obedience impossible. This is […]

Another Restrictionist Bible Study

Bryan Fischer’s restrictionist Bible study [in support of further restrictions on how many or who can come legally] argues that we should not open up our immigration quotas unless we first require them to all worship as America’s Founders did. Doesn’t that assume America’s Founders worshiped the same way? Fisher didn’t explain what way that […]

Immigration’s Deadliest Threat

By Dave Leach – Immigration’s deadliest threat was missed by Zack Taylor, retired border control agent, who said the Russian Mafia is sneaking “dirty bombs” and criminal sabateurs across an unpatrolled section of our border while Obama’s CIA facilitates the plan in Central America and border patrol agents are told not to ever fire their […]

House Bill Eviscerates Asylum System, Deports Child Trafficking Victims

By Alex Nowrasteh - President Obama recently asked Congress for authority to treat Central American children in the same way the government treats Mexican children. The Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act (H.R. 5137), introduced today by Reps. Chaffetz (R-UT) and Goodlatte (R-VA), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, goes beyond the President’s request. The bill […]

Border Children Documentary coming

By Dave Leach – TeaPartyPatriots.org sent out an email this morning about the documentary they are working on about the border children. They promise: Our documentary will detail how many of these “kids” are actually young men with ties to drug gangs. “Ties?” Like fleeing to us from drug gangs who had murdered their friends […]

Child Refugees: The Conservative Guide

This story is moving to me on a variety of levels. On a political level, my belief in free market, conservative immigration principles means I immediately sympathize with these refugees’ desire to live a better life in the United States. However for me it goes deeper than that. It has become very personal. Both my […]

“For I Was a Stranger” debate: “lawbreakers”

By Dave Leach – Before we dismiss any rights due immigrants because “they’re lawbreakers”, we need to care if the laws they violate are valid, which God has a say in. God’s opinion appears to matter, even to those who say it doesn’t. Suggest to Christians that Matthew 25:43-46′s warnings of Hell for those who […]

Branstad vs. children

By Dave Leach – Governor Terry Branstad will oppose any child refugees seeking refuge in Iowa, he said today. CBS reported, “Branstad said he was not aware of any of the children currently living in Iowa and that state has not been contacted by the federal government about housing any immigrant children.” Interesting, because three […]

For I Was a Stranger” debate (part 1)

By Dave Leach – I’ve been having a lot of fun this week, in debate about what the Word of God says about immigrants, and in particular any duty Christians have towards the children immigrating to Texas now. In the words of the old hymn, “I LOVE to tell The Story…of Jesus and His Love!” […]

How can a restrictionist go to Heaven?

By Dave Leach – How is it possible for a restrictionist (who wants further restrictions on legal immigration) to go to Heaven – even if he has “accepted Jesus into his heart”? How can that be possible when Jesus could not more clearly have said people who will not “take in” the “stranger” (immigrant) will […]
