    Sessions Cites Bible to Defend Separating Immigrant Families

    Thursday, June 14, 2018 05:22 PM
    By: By COLLEEN LONG

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited the Bible on Thursday in his defense of his border policy that is resulting in hundreds of immigrant children being separated from their parents after they enter the U.S. illegally.

    Sessions, speaking in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on immigration, pushed back against criticism he had received over the policy. On Wednesday, a cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church said that separating mothers from their babies was "immoral."

    Sessions said many of the recent criticisms were not "fair or logical and some are contrary to law."

    "I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order," he said. "Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful."

    Last month, the attorney general announced a "zero tolerance" policy that any adult who enters the country illegally is criminally prosecuted. U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.

    According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, more than 650 children were separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border during a two-week period in May.

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that she hadn't seen Sessions' comments but affirmed that the Bible did back up the administration's actions.

    "I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law. That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible," she said. "It's a moral policy to follow and enforce the law."

    In an unusually tense series of exchanges in the White House briefing room, Sanders wrongly blamed Democrats for the policy separating children from parents and insisted the administration had made no changes in increasing the use. Until the policy was announced in April, such families were usually referred for civil deportation proceedings, not requiring separation.

    "The separation of illegal alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close, and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade, and the president is simply enforcing them," she said.

    "We don't want this to be a problem," she said.

    Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the archbishop of Galveston-Houston, told the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Wednesday that he was joining other religious leaders in opposing the government's border policy.

    "Our government has the discretion in our laws to ensure that young children are not separated from their parents and exposed to irreparable harm and trauma," DiNardo said in a statement.

    Illegal aliens and supporters cite the scripture on strangers. They ignore the above mentioned by Attorney General Sessions. They also ignore bearing false witness or lying when they steal identities, fake documents. Coveting covers illegal aliens seeing what American citizens have, coming and stealing from them to better their lives while hurting others.

    THEY HAVE JESUS IN THEIR COUNTRY...GO HOME AND EFFECT CHANGE THERE!

    WE DO NOT WELCOME CRIMINAL TRESPASSING ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!

    IF WE DO NOT ENFORCE OUR LAWS...WE WILL BECOME THE CORRUPT LAWLESS CESSPOOL THEY CREATED ON THEIR OWN SOIL.

    IT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO POLICE THE WORLD...IT IS YOURS TO GO HOME AND FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS ON YOUR SOIL.

    Maybe it's just me, but I think it's going to take more than throwing Bible verses around to solve this problem.

    These illegal aliens are murderers, rapists, pedophiles, smugglers, drug runners, gang bangers, drunks, con artists, fugitives, losers, liars, thieves, moochers, whiners. frauds and scammers.

    The only good the Bible will do in this situation is to use a big one and beat them on the head with it as you chase their asses out of here.

    Just my opinion.

    I wish hed also said he wants to give BP greater authority to turn them away at the border or if over the border into US catch and deport immediately. We need a HUUUGE Trump Plan to turn them away, catch and deport as well as deport those already in the interior with a simple 2 question process:

    1. are you a US citizen, yes or no, verify
    2. do you have valid unexpired documents to be in the US, yes or no, verify
    3. if no and no, then out you go.

    Then go to their abode and round up all the illegal relatives and minor children, deport the whole group as a single unit, chain deportation, immediately.
