What do you do with foreigners?

Show them hospitality.

Give them justice.

Hold them accountable.

I believe that these are the answers one can come to by reflecting on the Law of Moses and the life of Christ.

When Christians living in a representative democracy go to vote on laws regarding immigration, I think they need to ask the following questions before giving or withholding their support:

Does this legislation exhibit hospitality to immigrants?

Does this legislation deal justly with immigrants?

Does this legislation hold immigrants accountable before the laws of the state/country?

Christians may not all vote the same way, but we should all share the same standards for deciding how we should vote.
