Is YOUR Church Helping the New Flood of Illegals?
It's a thorny situation for many congregations, especially those along the border with Mexico. Theological tenants vs. the law of the nation.
According to an in-depth report by Alex Jones Infowars, numerous churches are unwittingly playing into the White House's hands by offering housing and other support for the flood of illegals that have been pouring over our Southern Border.
Infowars reporters, much like Breitbart.com and Glenn Beck's The Blaze, have reporters on the ground at the border, tracking and reporting on the explosion of youth illegal immigration that has increased some 1300% in the last three years. According to Infowars:
'Efforts to house the undocumented immigrants come as agents with the Department of Homeland Security are reaching a breaking point, with one agent telling Infowars he believed the Obama Administration was deliberately facilitating the flow.
“We cannot get any attention or relief down here,” the agent wrote to us last week in a distressing letter, prior to DHS officialdom imposing a gag order, threatening criminal charges for agents who dare speak out on the broken state of the nation’s immigration system. Since then the agent has not returned our emails."
The report went on to say:
"While monitoring activity at a bus station in McAllen, Texas, Infowars witnessed several church group vans arriving throughout the day and being loaded to capacity with children (many of them without parents), before heading out to facilities nearby."
Many churches across the country have taken on the role of helping to assist these floods of illegals as they "fan out" across the country. It creates a difficult situation for them. Their beliefs and theologies necessitate helping others less fortunate, but in doing so in THIS situation, they're breaking the law. While they're to be lauded for helping their fellow man, are they actually making things worse by enabling this to continue?
The financial and economic drain on the country exacted by rampant illegal immigration has been well-documented. There has also been the widely-discussed issue of the Obama Administration allegedly doing this on purpose for political purposes to encourage future "Democratic" voters in the population.
This influx of immigrants has also stretched the Border Patrol and Customs departments to the point where they cannot apply their efforts to guarding the border against those who slip into this country with criminal purposes.
While most of these churches believe their doing the "right thing" by helping their fellow man, are they in the long-term, hurting the country by supporting an illegal activity that has been shown to economically harmful? Are these churches being unknowingly "used" by the government to care for these immigrants, when the reason they're here is for political purposes? It's a serious question, and it will be a sad day if the efforts of these congregations were being "used" for political purposes.
