9 THINGS JESUS MIGHT DO ABOUT IMMIGRATION

Lord, God, give our leaders wisdom in dealing with this explosive issue. Give us wisdom as believers also, that we may speak clearly and biblically on this issue. Help us have the mind of Christ by saturating ourselves in your Word.

Columnist Esther Cepeda has raised the question, “What Would Jesus Do About Immigration Issues?” In her article, Ms. Cepeda and journalist Michael Gerson seem to feel that the Bible teaches only the “welcome” aspect of migration. That it calls for porous if not open borders. Anything other than this is “hypocrisy” and “inhumane.” Those who disagree are in “far-right, anti-immigrant camps.”

I agree with their sensibility of kindness. But I’d like to let the Bible speak for itself. Because in it, God has a great deal to say about wise immigration and citizenship. I will also speak from data and personal experience.

Kelly reflects, “As a missionary in Guatemala, Peru and El Salvador, I wondered about the need for borders. Years later, curious about the many well-funded faith groups for open borders and amnesty, I began to study the Bible on this question.”

Where Can We Learn What Jesus Wants? The Bible

Jesus can be hard to predict, and full of surprises. Still, Jesus taught and lived perfect obedience to the Word of God, the Bible, so let’s start there.

In Scripture, we see that Jesus loves us all. His followers know that our truest “citizenship” is with Christ, in heaven. And yet, here we are, for a while, on this curious blue planet. From Genesis 1 on, we’re taught to nurture the garden of culture. Culture-shaping requires work, wisdom and vision.

Because Jesus loves all people, and wants all nations to thrive, we believe that he would do each of nine important things.

1. Stand and Lead

Jesus wouldn’t teach people to run from their homelands. He would empower them to stand their ground, to lead, and to overcome challenges with creative love. He wouldn’t want the strong to abandon and break up their families. Jesus wouldn’t send people to any “savior” nation. He is the savior and his gospel is for the flourishing of every person, and every nation.

I love Central America and worked among the very poor as a missionary with widows and orphans. When sons leave, they make their families and villages more vulnerable to danger. When children leave, they are too often abused and trafficked. What if we and they put creative effort, wisdom and the curious money behind ‘caravans,’ into the protection and growth of their local villages and cities? I suspect that’s what Jesus would do.

2. Clean Up Crime

Because He loves people, Jesus would oppose the crime and corruption that harms them. He would “clean the temple” and heal cities and nations so people would be free to stay at home. He surely wouldn’t empty whole towns of dads and leave the children fatherless.

Jesus would teach us to be adults who effectively deal with bullies. He does not cower to human traffickers, or radicals seeking to “fundamentally transform” nations wherever “progressive” money flows.

Because of open borders and legal loopholes:

  • 94% of heroin in the U.S. comes through the southern border.
  • 70,000 Americans have died from drug overdoses in 2018 (Laura Ingraham interview of U.S. Col. Douglas MacGregor, May 11, 2019).
  • Many jihadis and MS-13 gang members are embedded in our cities.

Let’s look at the facts. For instance, the findings of the new data on federal crimes (U.S. Sentencing Commission (USCC) Data on Federal Convictions Fiscal Years 2011-2016). Non-citizens account for a much larger share of convictions than their 8.4 percent share of the adult population. They account for:

  • 42.4 percent of kidnapping convictions.
  • 31.5 percent of drug convictions.
  • 22.9 percent of money laundering convictions.
  • 13.4 percent of administration of justice offenses (e.g. witness tampering, obstruction, and contempt). And
  • 17.8 percent of economic crimes (e.g. larceny, embezzlement, and fraud);

Hard working Americans of every race pay for all this. Over $100 billion in tax dollars go to support of illegal aliens. This is theft, as is voter fraud that is now well-documented across the country, with non-citizens voting.

Jesus loves Americans, just as he loves all people. He wouldn’t tolerate much less enable those who destroy lives. Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy, but I have come that you would have life to the fullest.” He loves us.

3. Affirm Compassion and Fairness

Jesus would likely laud America as the most generous nation on earth, welcoming a million legal immigrants per year. But many applying legally are left outside waiting because of illegal entries and spiking asylum claims. Letting those who broke the rules leapfrog over them is simply and frankly unjust.

4. Take the Whole Counsel of Scripture

Jesus would not cherry-pick Bible verses as the Pharisees did. He would reason from the whole counsel of Scripture which is the highest love for human beings, and highest good for cultures. And the Bible does not teach open borders, but wise welcome.

The Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) is funded by pro-abortion National Immigration Forum (NIF) of Soros’s Open Society, Ford and Rockefeller foundations. The EIT helped lead the fight for the Schumer-Rubio Bill amnesty efforts. It did so with a partial verse from Matthew 25, “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Here, Jesus judges us by how we treated the hungry, the prisoner and “these brothers of mine.” It is a powerful passage not to be taken lightly.

Given the realities of a fallen world, we are to build in the ruins and work for peace, human flourishing, and the glory of God. This effort means building doors and bridges. That can also include strong borders and the rule of law that yields peace. In Scripture, healthy national boundaries are viewed as a sign of blessing, while lax borders are seen as an urgent problem to be remedied.

But Jesus wasn’t a spin-doctor. He didn’t think in slogans, or little snippets of scripture. He knew and came to fulfill the whole of His father’s law. That means we must read His words in their entire biblical context. We try to do that in the e-book Wise Welcome, free for download at AmericanEvangelicals.com.) In it we find three crucial, scriptural guidestones on understanding the morals of migration.

THREE LITTLE WORDS: “GER,” “ZAR,” AND “NEKHAR”

“Ger” means “resident alien.” In the Bible, God teaches hospitality to foreign persons who come lawfully, with permission, as blessings — the word in Hebrew is “ger.” It is close to the word ‘convert.’ They are to be welcomed as “resident aliens.” They are also held to the same laws as citizens. Such assimilation is seen in the life of Ruth. That young Moabite said to her grieving mother-in-law, Naomi, “Your God shall be my God, and your people shall be my people.” God honored Ruth’s faith. She married a Hebrew elder, Boaz, and they became ancestral forebears of Jesus himself.

“Zar” and “nekhar” are “foreigners” and “strangers”: God warns against citizenship for foreigners who do not come lawfully, to bless a nation – the words in Hebrew are the zar and nekhar. This category includes those who come illegally as squatters, travelers, temporary workers and enemies.

Progressive Christians wrongly suggest that all foreigners are the “ger.” They smoosh together, as the Word of God does not, legal immigrants with illegal, and conflate patriotic newcomers who assimilate with anti-American squatters. This is unkind to millions of Americans who suffer the consequences illegal immigration: crime, drugs and loss of work. God loves American poor people too.

Further, the God of the Bible laments lawlessness (this would include today’s misnamed “sanctuary cities,”) and the ascension of foreign laws and faiths that corrupt the character of a people and nation once dedicated to him.

  • Isaiah 1:7: “Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners (zar) right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.”
  • Lamentations 5:2 – “Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers (nekhar), our homes to foreigners (zar).”
BORDERS AND WALLS CAN BE A BLESSING

After the exile to Babylon, Nehemiah grieved the demise of Jerusalem, and led the nation in the rebuilding of its faith, culture and walls.

Nehemiah 2:17 — “Then I said to them, ‘You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.’”

Given the realities of a fallen world, we are to build in the ruins and work for peace, human flourishing, and the glory of God. This effort means building doors and bridges. That can also include strong borders and the rule of law that yields peace. Healthy national boundaries are viewed as a sign of blessing, while lax borders are seen as an urgent problem to be remedied:

Isaiah 60:18 — “No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.”

5. See Through Dirty Politics

Of course Jesus would walk alongside the people in the migrant caravans. But are we sure He would lead them north? Maybe He’d tell them to reject the smooth words of the activists who goaded them to leave. Show them instead how to repair their home countries, and bloom where He’d planted them. He’d respond in each case as the Holy Spirit leads. But wherever people leave, there is a void to be filled, sometimes in the form of thousands of fatherless families.

We know that Jesus saw through the wiles of Pilate and Herod. Surely He wouldn’t play the game of Progressive social engineers, who use the poor as pawns. Since Jesus knew all, He would have realized this: If the thousands in today’s caravans were likely Republican voters, the Left’s well-funded machine would not be “welcoming” them to America.

6. Call out the Sadducees

Jesus would challenge the self-serving words of well-funded leftist clerics who cherry-pick Bible verses. He’d point to those who suffered the side-effects of empty words, devoid of prudence.

Jesus didn’t mince words concerning the high priests who put on pious garb while doing Caesar’s bidding. Woe to us when “ministers” bring harm to a nation by advancing a political majority pushing infanticide, lawlessness, and a socialist economic system built on envy and covetousness. Beware of wolves in shepherd’s clothing.

7. Render Unto Caesar

Jesus didn’t urge His disciples to break the law. He told them to pay their taxes, even to the occupying Roman government. If Jews were to honor Roman laws they had no part in making, how can Christians today urge us to break our own democratically-enacted laws? Joseph and Mary fled Herod, moving legally from one province of the Roman Empire to another. They were real refugees, supported themselves, and went home as soon as it was safe. Abraham, Moses, and Paul respected the borders, customs, and laws of each land they entered. What makes us think that suddenly we’re so special, that we get to flout the law?

8. Tell Us to Love Our Actual Neighbors

After students volunteered with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, she would send them home to love their families. “Love begins at home,” she famously taught. Poverty comes in many forms.

In the parable of the “good Samaritan,” Jesus expands our understanding of neighbor beyond neighborhood to the hurting person we encounter on our journey. Until the economic recovery, ninety million Americans were not working, while millions of foreign persons were “welcomed” to America, and many took jobs for lower wages. Shrugging at this was not a way of loving our neighbors.

We know that Jesus saw through the wiles of Pilate and Herod. Surely He wouldn’t play the game of Progressive social engineers, who use the poor as pawns. Since Jesus knew all, He would have realized this: If the thousands in today’s caravans were likely Republican voters, the Left’s well-funded machine would not be “welcoming” them to America.

9. Preach to All Nations

In Genesis 11, we see that Babel was a kind of ‘one world’ hierarchy with a super-elite using a servant class to “make a name for ourselves.” Because of love, God freed and decentralized people, allowing them to build strong families, tribes and cultures. He gave them unique languages and lands with borders.

God loves true diversity, whereas social engineers and media behind open borders want to churn out a global monoculture, made in their own elitist image.

Acts 17:26-27 – “… and 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, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might search for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.”

Jesus’s final words to his followers were: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

Biblical wisdom is the highest love for human beings. We’re called to wisely steward the garden of culture. Let’s honor both neighbors and those who come lawfully as blessings. And let’s continue the long Christian history of generous faith, overcoming evil with good. So we may be a light to the nations.

  1. I have a few simple questions.

    Are any of our commentators’ immigrants?
    Does anyone know what it means to seek asylum in a foreign country where there’s a language barrier?

    Has anyone ever been to a friends’ house, only to be put in a cage?

    Do we really understand, what it’s like for a child to be separated from his/her Parents?
    Do you know what it feels like to have your children taken from you?

    Just a few steps in the shoes of an Immigrant.

  2. This was very well written! Thank you for doing the research on what the Bible says about immigration! Father, spread this wisdom and understanding all across America so unrighteous laws can be overturned!

  3. A House Divided
    …27And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29How can anyone enter a strong man’s house and steal his possessions, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house

  4. Jesus hesitated to heal the Phonetician woman, because she was from the seed of Ham & Cush, because she wasn’t a Hebrew, & the Kingdom of God was not open to her until Jesus died. the Kingdom of God is for Christians, not those who oppose Christians. God Almighty gave the USA to Christians. The early Christians gave to Christians who had lost their inheritance by coming to Jesus.

  5. We had this discussion in our Bible study tonight. There are a couple if not more separate issues. Circumstances that have led to the problems with an influx of migrants is very complex. Human trafficking, drug cartels, crippling poverty in Central American and Mexico and on and on. The other side is the need to care for the people who have come. They must be housed, fed, clothed and given medical attention. Children must be kept safe. God has allowed this to happen and He is very aware of our response to this crisis of humanity. It is the responsibility of governments and governmental policy “manage ” immigrants. It is the responsibility of the church to care for immigrants. We as believers are missing an opportunity to speak the love of the Gospel.

  6. What an eye opening view from the perspective of Jesus. We don’t often think of those defenseless people and villages left behind.
    This article gives much to think about. Thank you for your insight and thought provoking ideas.

  7. Enjoyed this article and all of the comments. It answered a lot of questions in my mind and heart, and it seems the author was given the same thoughts I have about legal entry and illegal. Thanks you for all your research and for sharing it. I also shared it on Facebook.

  8. Without enforceable borders, we don’t have a country. And, as we learned from the Tower of Babel, God has ordained the nation-state. It is a way for man to check man, kind of like how our system of separation powers does. The Left, coming from a neo-pagan mindset, wants the elimination of these God-ordained borders.

    And, many of our recent problems with flood-migration have not been at legal ports of entry. Hundreds of thousands per year make that trek across the Rio Grande. So many on the Left argue against this, yet where are so many of these people in detention centers coming from?

    Of course this is not the only source of illegal immigration, but so what? If a wall can stop even 25% of it, is that not progress — and, all for the price of what amounts to pennies within the context of the national budget?

    Also, as the article stated, they leapfrog over others who honor our rules of entry. How is this fair or defendable? And, that they violate our nation’s sovereign laws was also a very valid Scriptural point.

    Waiting on a bipartisan solution to the problem of illegal entry is thoroughly unrealistic, which anyone paying attention for the past 30+ years would know. Much of the Left in Congress is made up of progressives — not liberals. They possess uncompromising views of “fundamental transformation” and only seem to be interested in removing all political obstacles to their authoritarian agenda, such as impeaching the president. The last thing they want to do would be to give Pres. Trump anything that he can claim as a successful “deal”. (This doesn’t include spineless conservatives who, for years, have failed to address this properly as well.)

    Now, let’s discuss the real reason the Dems are fighting so hard against a wall: They know it would work. Why would they not want it to work? The answer is in the state of California. Once a red state, now flipped blue, due largely to the influx of central American migrants who have socialist sensibilities. NM is flipping, and AZ may not be far behind.

    This is not about compassion or about the meanness of calling people “illegal” or “illegal aliens” (both thoroughly legitimate terms) or about racism or xenophobia. Those are merely the arguments of the propagandizing Leftist who needs to demonize his/her opponent because he/she cannot successfully defend their policies in a fair debate.

    Instead, this issue is about turning America hard-left, bringing about the fundamental transformation the Godless, neo-pagan Left wants so badly. They can’t do it constitutionally. They can’t convince the existing American population. So, why not just change that population?

    1. “The enemies of God’s people are many, but our eyes are on You Lord” Help us Father to keep our eyes upon you and to be faithful to Your command to “love one another”. With your wisdom and strength we can do what is right in Your eyes. I appreciated this article, has balance and wisdom. When I was raising a family of 7 and often the church failed us but as I sought the wisdom of God in prayer, His answer to me was always to keep my eyes on Him. As I did that He has always kept my feet on firm ground. May we as His people keep our eyes on Him and trust He will lead us with mercy and justice for others.

  9. Thank you for this biblically based article! In respecting God’s plans for the nations and His true love for real diversity, we need to look at ways we could help countries thrive rather than encouraging them to abandon their people.
    May God send help in the form of faith-based ministries and missionaries who are fully committed to His Word and His ways. May the Christians in each nation rise up to become godly leaders who will guide their nations in the paths of peace and flourishing.
    In Jesus name may it be so.

  10. I am not for or against immigration. What I am against is how immigrants are treated. Starting with referring to them as Illegal aliens; opposed to undocumented immigrants. Calling individuals aliens is offensive regardless of how Webster defines it. Aliens puts me in the mind of outer space creatures. Nevertheless, due to the division and uproar that immigration is causing: children being separated from their parents, recent mass shooting and low-wage exploitation of migrants, I believe it would be best to just temporary halt all forms of immigration: asylum seekers, merit and non merit, color and non color migrants, family reunification, etc. until a reasonable, humane and bipartisan solution can be reached even if it takes years.

    But more importantly, many Americans (Christian included) take issue with immigration for various reasons. There is no need for rationalizing the need to limit or do away with immigration. And although, there are economic concerns; but not so much in respect to drugs. I lived in a border town as well as, I had worked in Mexico exploring issues of drugs entering the USA. The majority of the drugs were transported via the Port of Entry with the assistance of powerful, wealthy, greedy and corrupt individuals on this side of the border. Not to mention how some American Tourists enter Mexico for the sole purpose of acquiring drugs, as Border Patrol Agents look on. Corruption!! The fallacy of a Wall would only deter a small portion of drugs and migrants entering our country: trucks, boats, trains, planes, etc via Port of Entry.

    The real economic concerns for immigration, is the monetary cost of caring for immigrants in and out of custody: education, medical, food stamps, public aid etc. The concern is that many of these programs will cease to exist for low-income naturalized citizens And therefore, if our government is unwilling or unable to care for their low-income citizens, it will be unfair to take care of non-citizens.

    1. Dear Charmaine, I think that our border patrol people are doing their very best to be fair to our illegal population, read number 8 of the article. the article is well presented not speaking in hateful tones but a true concern for all aspects of the circumstances. You are correct to say the main concern is economics. There is an old saying “charity begins at home” and we as a nation need to care first for our poorer population. Several years back when we had a surge of another group of immigrants in our community a teacher had the responsibility of teaching the children. In her class there was eight different speaking languages from this community of immigrants. How does a teacher begin? Is this fair to the children? This teacher will be graded on her ability to teach, even with this barrier. This is only one very minor situation we put communities in to overcome with little thought for a teacher or the children. Not all children brought in are with their actual parent and there is the issue of human smuggling. I cannot even think that as a parent of 5, I would let my children take such a dangerous journey without knowing we would have a future together as a family. I believe there is much that goes on with the plight of the illegal immigration, we as a people and a country do not have all the answers. We can only pray and keep our eyes on the LORD, He will lead us as a nation to do what is right and wise of all.

  11. Thank you for your response. What I mean is as law in the land and keep America safe, we still need law and order. My comment stems more from Yes pray and God leads us to establish law and order. The left does not want law and order, but lawlessness. This is the problem at hand which needs to be resolved and I agree with Trump about the illegal immigration which has been allowed to persist.

  12. Thanks for your very Biblical approach to this very severe and misguided problem for America. As in other situations in our culture, many of the believing community are misguided because they don’t know the word, or seem to care to become more acquainted with God’s way of dealing with huge cultural problems. Hopefully,the whole church will wake up and repent for not gravitating to the Biblical way of dealing with our issues. Appreciate you for putting this truth out for us.

  13. Thank you so much for this article. It is confirmation that I have been praying God’s heart.
    As I have been praying about this immigration situation, the Lord revealed that there are 2 types of people who are crossing our border. One calls strangers. He told me to pray that they receive Jesus as their Savior and are baptized with the power of God. Then go back to their own land and their people and share the love of God. The result will be revival. The other group is God’s foes & His enemies. That battle is the Lord’s.
    May God richly bless you and may your voice be heard far & wide.
    Thank you again. This has blessed me so much.

      1. Sometimes we just have to pray, then trust, then wait. God doesn’t wave a magic wand. He changes hearts and attitudes. So we must trust Him even in the waiting. He has a plan and it is a good one. He will work everything out in His perfect timing … not ours.
        Please be blessed, my friend.

        1. Praying for the Lord to open the eyes of our leaders and the American people God expose the lies and corruption. Change hearts
          Give those in authority power over the enemy of our souls deliver us from evil
