The Bible also recognizes the importance of complying with laws and the power of the state to enforce laws. I agree that we should be more open to immigration and have a workable solution for temporary workers that permits free passage to and fro their home countries. it's the LAW that is the problem here. We need changes to the immigration and foreign worker laws that better reflect the reality of human rights to move and work freely. we also need enforcement mechanisms to ensure that the laws are followed and illegal actions by alien are dealt with justly - and harshly enough to discourage criminals and cheats. Until we roll back the welfare state, we need enforceable provisions to prevent aliens from receiving public assistance.
