Christians and Immigration Reform


Too many Christians in this country do not see the very real harm that our immigration policies are not only having on families, but fail to recognize Jesus in faces of these brothers and sisters in Christ. I believe that we as Christians must stand with the “strangers and aliens” that are now living within our artificial borders.

A recent article in The Grand Rapids Press focused on a recent vigil for immigration reform as well as work being done in this area by local groups. This particular issue is one which our family cares about deeply . . . primarily because of friendships that have been formed, allowing us to see first hand the detrimental impact on families. Kate Kooyman, my daughter (in law), is actively engaged in this work on behalf of the Office of Social Justice for the Christian Reformed Church.

    The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
