appeared on CNN to debate the recent announcement by churches in Kansas City stating that they would be part of the so called "New Sanctuary Movement" and break federal law to aid, abet and harbor illegal aliens. They even went as far as erecting a billboard that confuses the illegal nature of the issue by saying "Love the immigrant as yourself"

These churches seem to know more than the federal government does because they claim that they only help illegal aliens who aren't criminals and have a clean record. Their omnipotence is unending.
Kansas City Star
Standing under their Interstate 70 billboard declaring, “Love the immigrant as yourself,” several Kansas City area church leaders pledged Tuesday to offer sanctuary to illegal immigrants threatened with deportation.
None of the Kansas City churches has yet sheltered an illegal immigrant.
But other churches in the New Sanctuary Movement nationwide have let illegal immigrants live on their properties, hoping that immigration agents won’t raid churches to make arrests.
Churches that pledge to be sanctuaries offer help only to illegal immigrants with clean criminal records who face deportation, have American-born children and have worked for years in the United States.
Since they know which are criminals and which aren't, I'd expect a slew of calls to law enforcement as they magically see the criminals that come asking for their help.
Of course, all illegal aliens are criminals and all of these churches are criminals for aiding and abetting illegal aliens, a direct violation of federal law. So I'll be expecting them to turn themselves in as well.

Let's stop using the emotions of pity and guilt to manipulate non thinkers into accepting amnesty for illegal aliens.
Do some Christian churches honestly expect us to believe that God want US citizens to passively accept having their country overwhelmed by a mass, uncontrolled migration of foreigners (not 11 but 25 million and growing)?
Do they really mean that God does not want anyone anywhere to have a country, a land to call his own? That is the logical end result of their assertions that we should give total deference to illegal aliens. Are they claiming that one world government (no borders) is the only political system compatible with Christianity?
I love my brother as myself; yet, I want him to take his family and go home at night. Why do we spend big money on missionaries? Isn't that Christian love?

these churches are following the commandment to "love the stranger" in the old testament. it is God's law that supersedes the government of the united states. these people have family they need to be with an dthey need care and support,they cant starve. and they need to be given love from churches to follow Christ's example. would he deport them? no He wouldn't,yet he could tell them to return home if there was a better life for them again at their home country. most time,it is not in other countries. always been america's duty to help the world.
