President Donald Trump made his case to the American people about the need for increased border security. Of course, the news media loaded up to refute his statistics and made the entire narrative about the "Wall." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that a "wall is an immorality." But there are deeper reasons for the case of increased border security than just a wall-which many of these same politicians once supported. Trump's funding package also requests money for increased drug enforcement, 52,000 detention beds, 75 more immigration judges, 750 more Border Patrol agents, and 2,000 more ICE personnel. It's not just about a wall, it's about the national security of Americans-you and me.
But that's the political issue. No matter how many crimes are committed-the first being that these people break the law by entering the country illegally-or how much disease is spread, or how many more women and children are sold into sex trafficking, or how much drug trade is conducted, the Democrats believe that once they get these people into the country, they will vote for Democrats. So they will twist the numbers, cry immorality, call people racists and xenophobes, or whatever they have to do to allow illegals into the country. It is already proven that voter fraud is their way to win. They already have a platform to prevent voter reform. They already state they want to abolish ICE. This is politics.
The Bible is very clear about how to handle immigrants. Exodus 22:21 says, "You shall neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him." This is repeated in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. In context, Exodus 12:49 says, "
One law shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the foreigner who sojourns among you." This is also repeated in Numbers and Leviticus.
One law for all. In this context it is God's law, but these people neither want to submit to the laws of the nation or to God's laws. Walls work. Israel has one that suffered the same outcry of racism as it was being built, but suicide bombings decreased by 86% from the sector behind the wall once it was built. On the negative, the Berlin Wall separated entire families and millions from freedom for nearly three decades. America not only needs a wall, it needs the will to protect its citizens.
While the news media and the "progressives" can argue the decimal points on Trump's numbers, the facts are that bad things are happening because of lax border security. Data released by ICE indicates that In 2014, ICE released a total of 30,558 criminal aliens, convicted of 92,347 crimes. The total number of new crimes for which these aliens were convicted after ICE released them was 2,560, including: 298 dangerous drug offenses, 185 assaults, 40 weapons offenses, 28 sex offenses, 10 sex assaults, four kidnappings, two arsons, and one homicide. The numbers have escalated since. Whenever someone cites the facts to those who want lawlessness, the facts are refuted with charges of racism or other such labels. This is not a "wall" issue. It's a "will" issue. The will of the lawless verses the will of the just.
