Does the Bible Justify Family Separation at the Border?

Sessions: harsh migrant policy aims to end 'lawlessness' Jeff Sessions Says Immigration Laws & Border Wall Will End Family Separation

Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated comparisons of US border policies for illegal immigrants to Nazi policies are a "real exaggeration".

The administration's effort has been made more hard as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen appeared to break with Sessions Monday, saying the policy was not meant to be a deterrent to immigrants contemplating illegal crossings.

"Separating children from their parents demands an investigation by the church". "I ask that you take immediate action to end the practice of separating children from families at the border". This has been compounded by subsequent policies making asylum protection unavailable to victims of domestic and gang violence, even to those who properly request asylum at US ports of entry.

The letter says the policy would be "illegal under most state laws" and claims it directly interferes with the jobs of local, national and worldwide law enforcement officials.

"We do not want to separate children from their parents", Sessions said. Sessions said Monday in New Orleans at the National Sheriff's Association conference that enforcing immigration laws that result in the separation of children from parents is necessary.

Hunton & Williams partner Tim Heaphy, a former US attorney for the Western District of Virginia who helped organize the letter, said Tuesday it was unusual for former USA attorneys to speak out on administration policies, but noted there was bipartisan consensus on the issue.

Herring joined a coalition of 21 attorneys general calling on United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the cruel attacks on children and families lawfully seeking asylum in the United States as they seek protection from domestic, sexual and gang violence.

Under the policy, all unlawful crossings are referred for prosecution - a process that moves adults to the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol agents, after being detained near the U.S. -Mexico border on June 12, 2018, in McAllen, Texas.


"In one sense I don't think Sessions cares", said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Trump continued to fault Democrats and pointed to more lenient policies under past administrations that had not charged all migrants who had crossed illegally.

Many Christian leaders have rejected Sessions' interpretation of Romans 13 and spoke out against the zero tolerance policy, including the Council of Bishops of the United Methodist Church.

Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions's announcement that all illegal border crossings would be criminally prosecuted, thousands of children have been taken from their parents at the border, sparking an outcry over human rights abuses.

"We can not and will not encourage people to bring children by giving them blanket immunity from our laws", said Mr. Sessions, who for days before his Justice Department drafted the executive order, had been putting the onus on Congress to change immigration laws.

In a letter addressed to Session's pastors, 640 clergy and laity urge "some degree of accountability" for the top law enforcement official in the country, who they say is affiliated with United Methodist churches in Alabama and the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

"We do not want to separate children from their parents".
