Some of you here on Twitter debate w/ the same rationale of those who justified slavery.
Truth is, the states that now border Mexico used to be Mexico & were taken b/c slaveholders wanted to keep slaves after Mexico abolished slavery.
Jesus was forced into another country b/c of military policy just as many Latino brothers & sisters have been forced to flee their homes b/c of bad military policies.
Herod was killing babies after Jesus b/c of greed & thirst for power just as Trump’s racist policies against Latino immigrants are rooted in greed, thirst for power & lies.
Jesus said in Matthew 25 that nations would be judged by how they welcomed the immigrant or stranger.
To attempt to say Jesus has nothing to say about the unjust policies we see today is to act just like those who said Jesus had nothing to say about slavery, Jim Crow & racism.
