Immigration, the law and border walls

America is a place of opportunity for the good as well as the bad. That’s why immigrants are trying to get here, even with the threat of losing their children.
I once heard, “Do you continue to sin so grace would abound?” No.
What is sovereignty without borders? A country isn’t ran by grace but by laws. The Holy Spirit graces us to follow the laws. Let’s not compare this to the past and our forefathers’ struggles who were forced over here, obstructing our family ties on numerous levels.
Did top Democrats vote for a border wall in 2006? Yes.
The Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was passed by a Republican Congress and signed by President George W. Bush, called for 700 miles of fencing along certain stretches of land on the U.S.-Mexico border. When it passed the U.S. Senate on a 80-19 vote, it was supported at the time by then Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and 24 other Democrats.
Originally, the act called for installation of at least two layers of fencing along some stretches of the border. But that was amended by the Appropriations Act of 2008.
Why are the Democrats playing politics now that President Trump is in office?
I have dual citizenship. I’m a citizen of the United States and the kingdom of heaven. My job is to help pass laws to make America the glory of heaven.
People should make themselves at home here the right way.
I thank the Free Press for keeping us abreast of current events and giving us an avenue to express our opinion.
