We always hear from these citizens of the world, but who speaks for the citizens of the United States?
The Bible's an interesting book. In one verse it talks about welcoming the stranger. Then a couple of chapters later God instructs the Israelites to destroy every man, woman, child and beast in the land...simply because they are living in the wrong place. And that's just the book of Deuteronomy!
But when one realizes that church growth in the United States and Europe depends heavily on immigrants, one can surmize why they take this position.

A well-written and encompassing news article.

Another poor-written article who fails to make a distinction between legal and illegal immigration. Most people are OK with legal immigration, but disapprove of illegal immigration. As a legal immigrant, I have always felt welcome. Illegal aliens are not welcome because they sneak into our country and commit all sorts of fraud to live here. They say we need immigration reform, but what we actually need is enforcement of our current immigration laws. Immigration reform (aka amnesty) is not the solution as this will encourage more illegal immigration.

is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest
- Barbara Jordan She also said. Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave

The Bible teaches how people should come to a country, and obey the laws of the land.

It teaches not to steal, not to covet and not to lie. It also teaches that it's easier to fit a camel through the eye of a needle, than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God.

That speaks to those who illegally hire them.
