It is not illegal to seek asylum in the United States. We’re a great nation that people find so great they want to seek refuge in its borders.

We’re treating suffering people with contempt and treating them like animals.

Despite Donald Trump lying and saying this is a law that democrats can change… It’s not a law. It’s a policy Jeff Sessions said he’d enact months ago, and now he is.

Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions could stop this now. This moment. But they won’t because they lack the humanity to do so.

Can someone please remind Jeff Sessions that Jesus was a child refuge brought by his mother to a safer place?

“Certain magoi(“wise men”/astrologers) come from “the East” to Herod, the Roman client king of Judaea, looking to honor a new ruler they have determined by a “star,” and Jesus is identified as the one. All this is bad news to Herod, and Herod acts in a pre-emptive strike against the people of Bethlehem and its environs. He kills all boys under two years of age in an atrocity that is traditionally known as “the massacre of the innocents” (Matthew 2.16–18).

But Joseph has been warned beforehand in a dream of Herod’s intentions to kill little Jesus, and the family flees to Egypt. It is not until Herod is dead that Joseph and Mary dare return, and then they avoid Judaea: Joseph “was afraid to go there” (Matthew 2.22) because Herod’s son is in charge. Instead they find a new place of refuge, in Nazareth of Galilee, far from Bethlehem.

Jesus’ earliest years were then, according to the Gospel of Matthew, spent as a refugee in a foreign land, and then as a displaced person in a village a long way from his family’s original home.”

What Trump it’s saying and doing to our most trusted allies is unsettling at the least, disgusting in the middle, and intolerable at the most.
