The Morality of Open Borders

I'm kinda' tired of politics. I almost never post on it anymore. I believe the country will have a mass reconversion to the faith or it won't. But that's the answer. If this country returns to Christianity it may survive. If it doesn't, it will continue it's slow-motion suicide.

So the politics of the immigration bill don't interest me at all. But when a moral case is made for an issue my ears perk up.

This immigration bill has been dominating the news. I haven't read the bill but one of the points made numerous times is that if you're not for the bill, you're for throwing people out of the country and splitting up families. That's obviously not true. One can be for securing the border without wanting to round up dark-skinned people on busses and driving them to the border in chains.

But the moral point raised again and again is about splitting up families. I've heard it said that if you're against the immigration bill, you're for splitting up families.

I have to ask, isn't our open border an enticement to splitting up families? Aren't thousands of men and women leaving their families in Mexico to come to the United States to earn money to send back to Mexico? Isn't every amnesty an enticement to men and women to leave their families because they know they can earn money in America and will eventually be made a citizen? So couldn't it be argued that if you're for keeping families intact you should be for a more secure border and against amnesty?

You're exactly right. I work in and among illegal aliens from Mexico often. The vast majority I meet are married men whose families reside in Mexico. Sane immigration laws would not entice people to split up their families.

Splitting up families is terrible. We should definitely work harder to help reunite those families that find themselves separated. Why not reunite them south of the border?

Because everyone knows South of the Border is a terrible place to be. What yet remains to be determined is how we keep North of the Border from becoming a likewise terrible place.

As someone who lives at the border.
You almost never hear about the corruption and exploitation by the Mexican government and other foreign countries. They train their people how to "break" our laws and work our generous low income programs. Check out the monetary remittance legals and illegals send home to their country of origen. Then flee home after committing serious crime. Mind boggling!

Anyone supporting wide open borders should read, "The Immorality of Illegal Immigration" by Fr. Patrick J. Bascio. He has a lot to say and pulls no punches, making the case that even our legal system works to gut the indigenous cultures of the illegal immigrants.

Many of these people are our brothers and sisters. Many of the immigrants we could learn from to better our faith. Many of these immigrants need our help and our love. Many are taken away from their faith after being bombarded with our sick society that we have created, not them. They are being eaten up by our culture of death, lust, greed. Not to mention protestantism because of our weak Catholicism. Sorry but "they" haven't ruined this country "we" have but just maybe they will help save it. ¡ Viva Cristo Rey!
