Illegal Immigration in the Bible

Leviticus 19:33-34 (KJV)

And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

 

Ah, see? It says right there, “Only white, English-speaking people are allowed, for this is ‘Murica!”. The bible has spoken!

Where is this coming from out of nowhere? I had a fellow believer friend tell me that the bible is clear that illegal immigration is a sin, and that you should kill anyone who tries to become part of your land. But I didn’t see that at all. The only thing I could think of is something I covered in another post;

Deuteronomy 7:3-4(KJV)

Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

But that was talking about the Israelites intermingling with conquered lands. this is talking about someone moving from one land to another land. Not even the same thing.

So why is everyone so worked up about people coming to live in America? The only things I’ve heard are that they come here to rape, pillage, and kill, which is not true, or that they take all the jobs so Americans can’t find work, which is again not true. Which, of course, leaves the biblical reasons, but I’ve already discredited that.
