A problematic approach and a simple solution to American Immigration Policy
In our modern so-called sophisticated high-tech world society has neglected the ancient wisdom of biblical teachings. Because of the neglect of the simple things of life often simple boundaries have become blurred and confused.
For example, as to the fundamental principles of mass immigration biblical understanding and teachings are quite straightforward, simple and seemingly unsophisticated, but salient and effective. For example, the bible teaches as follows regarding national boundaries and immigration.
“I will fix your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you. “( see Exodus 23:31 ) “He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation” (see Acts 17:26) “When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, When He separated the sons of man, He set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel.” (see Deuteronomy 32:8) “You also gave them kingdoms and peoples and allotted them to them as a boundary. They took possession of the land of Sihon the king of Heshbon and the land of Og the king of Bashan.” (Nehemiah 9:22) “You have established all the boundaries of the earth; You have made summer and winter.” (Psalm 74:17)
Biblical scripture also indicates that our Lord Most High will set the bounds and determine the life, extent and reach of nations. “For I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your borders, and no man shall covet your land when you go up three times a year to appear before the LORD your God.” (see Exodus 34:24) This verse saliently instructions nation-states to place worship of our Lord as a priority in order to avoid invasions and mass migrations from other distinct peoples and nations.
Pursuant to biblical teachings our Heavenly Father’s divine plan and manifest destiny is upon all the peoples of his creations to operate within the boundaries wherein our Lord has placed the families, peoples, creeds, tribes, tongues, races and ethnic groups of the earth. The bible manifests the conservative viewpoint which is to control mass migration which results in the destabilization, confusion of identity and overwhelming of the infrastructure of society by exercising national stewardship over borders the resulting national blessing or benefit are contained secure borders and a stable well-ordered society.
Mass migration, uncontrolled immigration, open borders, unsecured and tenuous sovereignty results in chaos and societal displacement, anger and violence due to massive upheaval and displacement.
People began to question their place and status in society as hordes of migrants move into cities and neighborhoods once occupied by earlier inhabitants of the nation-state. Communities experience chaos, disorder and disheveled upheaval.
Societal anger and resentment replace national contentment and respect for national traditions. The biblical psalmists put it this way, in terms, of respect for national traditions …” You have made summer and winter” also meaning the seasonal traditions of the nation and particular civilization. The psalmist continues, “you have established the boundaries of the earth” (see Psalm 74:17)
Mass migrations like military invasions create intense cultural and societal conflicts, which results in armed confrontations, through mass violence.
Inevitably, a nation which ignores essential biblical teachings bring about the consequences of the broken laws. In terms, of a nation which allows open borders and mass migration a consequence is societal upheaval, displacement, anger and resentment, which results in violence. A nation-state first and foremost responsibility are the citizens within the boundaries of her own sovereignty rather than migratory foreign nationals.
In the case of America, the predominant culture has been the Judeo-Christian culture and the traditions of the people have focused mainly on a western Christian value system within the context of the broader Judeo-Christian societal construct.
There was a time when every school child had been taught the story of General Washington kneeling in prayer at Valley Forge calling upon the forces of God for divine aid and intervention. What God was President Washington calling upon. Of course, the answer was the God of Christ. And yet today, as a result of poor immigration policies America has been cursed with the scourge of old-world conflicts which has followed the immigrant to America.
Consider the foolish mockery of Rashid Taliab whose parents immigrated to America from Palestine.
This woman has endorsed the idea the education of children should identified as Muslim, rather than American. Yet as a result of extremely negligent immigration policies this woman’s parents clearly did not raise their child to be American, but Muslim. She should not be a member of the American congress, but rather in a Muslim country. Why? There is absolutely no common ground. The final goal is the Islamification of America. Certainly, a dramatic departure from the fundamental belief of America’s founding fathers.
Common ground for Taliab is to allow for the “distinct Islamic agenda” rather, than be part of the “great American melting pot”. Her position and most Muslim immigrants that voted her into office do not wish to be part of the “great American melting pot” but to maintain “a distinct Muslim agenda”. This Islamic notion is distinctly variant from the traditional basis of American immigration policy, which endorses the idea of the great American melting pot within the context of Judeo-Christian values.
Hence, America should be forewarned that the current negligent American immigration policies and open border globalist agenda will eventually destroy America from within through internal violence and by foreign pressures at the borders. Conservative journalist Michelle Malkin in a National Review article, entitled, Immigration and the Values of Our Founding Fathers, December 11, 2015, summed up the founder’s collective philosophy regarding American immigration policy as follows.
“The survival of the American republic, Hamilton maintained, depends upon “the preservation of a national spirit and a national character.” He asserted: “To admit foreigners indiscriminately to the rights of citizens the moment they put foot in our country would be nothing less than to admit the Grecian horse into the citadel of our liberty and sovereignty.”
No doubt, Washington’s aide, Alexander Hamilton, insights into the dangers of an “indiscriminate “immigration policy should be so noted by every American congress and wise policies should thus be enacted as the law of the land. However, it should be noted, as congresswoman Rashid Talib’s speech clearly reveals, “the Grecian (Trojan)horse “has already been admitted “into the citadel of our liberty and sovereignty.”
The cumulative effect of negligent immigration policy is exponential, because the wrong type of migrants with conflicting value systems and adverse ethnic and religious identities to American traditional values will overwhelm and destroy America if not checked. Consider a congress made of a majority of Taliab and Omar members. Traditional America would quickly fade from existence and a different foreign America would arise. Is it xenophobic to craft immigration policies to hedge against unqualified immigrants? Today, founding father Alexander Hamilton would be called xenophobic by open border advocates, instead of an American patriot. Hence, the subversive anti-American organizations of society seek to rob American’s of their national heritage by changing the meaning of history to obtain their nefarious anti-Christian, anti-American agenda.
Thus far, the congressional approach to modern immigration policy has been problematic with demeaning political self-interest and greed masquerading under the guise of congressional statesmanship. There is a simple approach and that is the ancient biblical approach. As conservative political commentator Ezra Taft Benson prophetically uttered in 1967 “There is a time and season for all righteous things, and many of life’s failures arise when men neither take the time nor find the season to perform their eternal duties. What, then, in this time and season may best equip us to save our Christian constitutional legacy, while at the same time rescuing our own souls?” ( see Christ and the Constitution, by Ezra Taft Benson, Conference Report, April 1967 )
