Debate Takeaway 3 – Border Security :: by Bill Wilson

Presidential debate moderator Chris Wallace said he wanted to clear up Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s position on border security and immigration reform. He said, “…in a speech you gave to a Brazilian bank, for which you were paid $225,000, we’ve learned from the WikiLeaks, that you said this, and I want to quote, “My dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders.”

So that’s the question…Is that your dream, open borders? Clinton tried to discredit WikiLeaks by saying that it was a Russian conspiracy to influence the U.S. elections, but she did say that “I do want us to have an electric grid, an energy system that crosses borders.” This ignores her stance on bringing in thousands of un-vetted immigrants from Islamic nations that support terrorism and from across the Southern border of the U.S.

Trump answered for Clinton, “She wants open borders. People are going to pour into our country. People are going to come in from Syria. She wants 550 percent more people than [sic the current “president”], and he has thousands and thousands of people.” Then Clinton deterred the talk from immigration to Russian conspiracy, but the fact remains that her immigration policy is a continuation of the current “president’s” but more as documented on her website.

As Homeland Security head John Roth told the Senate in March, “We may be admitting individuals who wish to do us harm.” This policy will continue under a Clinton Administration.

Moreover, the Center for Immigration Studies has analyzed the “president’s” immigration policy from data released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The analysis concludes that since 2010, ICE has released 124 aliens who have been charged with 135 new homicides; some have been released multiple times.

In 2014, ICE released a total of 30,558 criminal aliens. These aliens had already been convicted of 92,347 crimes before they were released by ICE. As of July 25, 2015, a total of 1,607 aliens had been convicted of a crime after being freed by ICE. 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.

It is obvious that these people do not wish to follow the law, nor do they want to assimilate as Americans. The political goal by Clinton is to promote anarchy to trigger socialist change. 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. If they are here illegally, they have broken the law as their first act. Hard as it is, policymakers must address this, otherwise our country is in danger.

Have a blessed and powerful day!
