I am not religious, but I find the following verse to be very thought provoking at a time like this, when immigration is such a controversial topic. “The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.” – Leviticus 19:34
Conservatives often respond, “It may be your Christian duty to help these people, but it is not the governments responsibility.” This is an interesting point, and my rebuttal is; then stop saying we are a Christian nation.
