Pres. Obama Distorts the Constitution and the Bible
To Promote Illegal Immigration
By Dr. Tom Snyder, Editor
President Obama’s speech Thursday night to change the nation’s immigration laws by fiat was not only full of distortions concerning his presidential powers under the United States Constitution, it also contained a distortion of what the Bible says about the stranger, or the aliens, among us from other countries.
The President was right about only one thing. The Bible does indeed tell the Jews in Exodus 22:21 not to mistreat or oppress the aliens or immigrants living among them. However, it also says in Leviticus 18:26 that immigrants or aliens living among the Jews must obey God’s Law, including His Justice.
Thus, illegal aliens (or “undocumented workers” as the Democrats, leftists and biased liberal media likes to call them in order to deceive the public) who secretly entered the land without the permission of the Jews, and thus evaded God’s laws, had no right to stay in the land of the Jews once they were discovered or caught.
In addition, although God tells us to be kind to strangers and immigrants, not just the poor and needy, this kindness doesn’t extend to the taxes that a legitimate government collects from the citizens to “punish evildoers” (see Romans 13).
No, the kindness we extend to strangers, aliens, family members, and all other people is meant to be a PRIVATE kindness that can extend to include PRIVATE charity freely chosen. Such kindness doesn’t include public welfare or extreme amounts of charity to able-bodied people who can work for their own living and that of their immediate families. Nor does it allow the legal immigrant (or anyone else for that matter) the right to take over our own private homes or the schools we set up for our own children, grandchildren and relatives, much less to force other people to pay for the legal immigrant’s food, shelter, clothing, and education (see Deut. 14:28, 29, Numbers 18:24, Matthew 6:1-4, 1 Timothy 5:3-16, 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12, and 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15 in the Bible).
Illegal immigrants are not only lawbreakers. They are also cheaters. They have violated God’s definition of Justice, which clearly states in Leviticus 19:15 says, “Do not pervert justice; do not show favoritism to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.” As Moses tells all the people of the Nation of Israel in Deuteronomy 16:18-20, “Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the Lord your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the Lord your God is giving you.”
To sneak into the United States, take up our land, use our roads and hospitals, and force taxpayers (through the government) to pay for you and your family’s schooling, food, shelter, clothing, and healthcare is a total and evil perversion of Divine Justice.
By disobeying and flouting the constitutional laws and immigration rules of the United States, slandering Republicans and conservatives, and distorting Holy Scripture to excuse his actions, President Obama has acted like a wicked, unjust dictator. No wonder the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, said Friday that the Republicans in Congress no longer trust Obama’s words or actions, much less his fulfillment of his constitutional mandate under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, which requires President Obama to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Obama has obviously failed to follow this oath of office. His failure is an act of arrogant, selfish narcissism that’s unprecedented, at least within the modern age of this constitutional republic that we call America.
President Obama continues to lie and refusing to faithfully execute the nation’s laws, including his own Obamacare act not just the immigration laws, according to the parameters of the U.S. Constitution. So, not only Republicans and conservatives, but also America’s citizens can’t trust president Obama, and that’s why the Congress can not and should not pass a “comprehensive” immigration law. Contrary to what Obama said Thursday night, the American immigration system isn’t “broken,” he’s just failed to enforce the immigration laws, including our visa laws, and secure America’s southern border.
This doesn’t mean, however, that Congress shouldn’t take a look at reforming America’s immigration laws. Perhaps, for instance, we can indeed cut some red tape and make it a little easier (and cheaper) for people overseas to LEGALLY emigrate or LEGALLY obtain short-term (or even long-term) work visas to the United States, the greatest nation on Earth, or to apply for citizenship.
However, we don’t need a “comprehensive” immigration reform bill that grants mass amnesty of any kind to illegal aliens or immigrants who shouldn’t be here in the first place! And, we certainly shouldn’t put such people on the public dole, or completely pay for their schooling and that of their children and grandchildren.
President Obama’s attempts to set up a leftist, socialist dictatorship with tens of millions of illegal immigrants must be opposed vigorously by every intelligent, informed and sane American citizen and their elected political leaders.
America’s future liberty and prosperity demand it!
