Immigration and Assimilation- 2


Article 4 section 4 of the Constitution of the United States states that the United States is a republic and not a democracy. America is governed by the Constitution supposedly. Islamic immigrants to our country demand that Shahira law accompany them to our Shores. If they desire that law so much, why did they leave their native country to come to America? Assimilation plays a key role in immigration. One’s cultural aspects may be blended into our system but not one’s cultural laws for we have our own laws governed by the Constitution of the United States. If you opt for your own legal system why would you come to America? A cultural blend adds to America’s culture but we don’t need a new legal code as our constitution stands apart quite nicely. It covers our means of governance. English should also be a requirement for citizenship. Immigrants need to acclimate to our governance and not the other way around. They need to blend into our society adding what they can to make it better. America is a nation of immigrants but only according to our governance and according to our constitution as nothing else will do.

What does the Bible say about Illegal Immigration?-


Are you familiar with this poem? It is found on the Statue of Liberty Overlooking New York Harbor. Give me your tired your poor. What does this mean according to the laws of the land? Can any country take in the immigrants of the entire world without limitation or restraint? The Bible is quite clear on immigration. But largely under the law.

Mishpat is a Hebrew word for rule-of-law. That means that immigration must be connected to law and that the term illegal immigration must be addressed. What does the word illegal mean? Not according to law. Every Sovereign Nation has laws otherwise it becomes a lawless Nation. The United States, for example, has a process for immigration under the laws of the land. My grandparents came into the United States from Lithuania under proper immigration law. They just didn’t come here and claim they were citizens. They had to go through the process of becoming citizens. Every Sovereign Nation deals with this issue. Can you imagine a country like Romania taking in every single immigrants in the world? The United States has laws to deal with immigration in the proper format. Even our country has limits to what they can do. Yet when immigrants cross the border illegally they should not be imprisoned in cages but should be dealt with humanely.

The Democratic Party wants open borders so perhaps they should bear the responsibility of adopting an immigrant family until they can feed and clothe themselves and support themselves lawfully. Has this ever been addressed by our country? One difficulty is there would be a language barrier at first. Reeducation at an older age can be difficult. There are also cultural differences to be considered. I will go into more of that in part 2.
