The Bible does talk about charity to the alien; but it also talks about using the natural knowledge (common sense) within us. Aliens are now taking most of the field at harvest, not just the corners and what is dropped. There are two practical reasons for opposing amnesty. 1. Each illegal alien costs taxpayers around $22,000 per year for free medical care, which has caused several hospitals to permanently close their doors, education, food stamps, and other welfare benefits.

2. According to the US Dept of Health, over 1/3 of illegals could not pass a routine health exam; the type of exam you take when you start a new job.

why are you in love with legal immigration? our traitorous government has invited hordes of somolian scum to contaminate our country. most muslim immigration is "legal" inasmuch as our criminal government violates our laws to allow "refugees", mostly muslim enemies, to invade our country. generally, the legals--somolians, pakistani, etc, are worse scum than the illegals. the illegals dont want to kill us. the muslim criminals our government invites to invade us do want to kill us.
On Wednesday evening former Secretary of State Condi Rice picked a fight with a large and vocal section of the Republican base, and I’m glad she did. This confrontation is long overdue. Zero-tolerance law-and-order rhetoric about the immigration issue has become the standard for talk radio and other conservative circles, and I think that this fact puts much of the conservative movement at odds with two of its most important foundations: a view of compassion derived from the Biblical tradition, and a commitment to economic freedom and limited government as an optimistic upward path to prosperity.
 
Here’s what she said:...
