We don't need immigration reform, just need the Federal government to do their job. You Christian leaders just stay out of politics and stay in you church.

Totally agree -- Stay out or lose you're tax exempt status. Use your time in a better way and help those legal citizens in your community that have now lost their jobs and don't have any where to turn for help. Are any of you opening your church doors for those people like you did the illegals? It's disgusting that we have to listen to this junk from church leaders.

Guess their values don't include helping Ameican citizens. Guess they want to help just those that have stolen from us in every possible way, not to mention those that have murdered, raped and robbed. Yeah, you good Christian leaders just keep helping those "so called" poor, pitiful people, just coming to this nation for a better life. Let's see what will happen when one of you or your family members becomes one of their criminal elements' vitim. Bet you'll change your song really quickly.

You have the right to remain silent, anything you say, can and will be used against you in a court of law, blah blah blah. They let illegal immigrants come in and trash our communities, overburden our medical and educational facilities and then tell us we have lost our 401k in the stock market. Then tell us we need to find god when things get tough, just to have "Gods People" turn around and try and be political. Freedom and justice? Freedom = you have the right to remain silent while we put you in Guantonamo. Justice = anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

ohhhh and the illegals get a free pass... if they pass the border patrol without getting caught they get to take over the mortgage on your house at a substantial savings. your mortgage $275000, their mortgage (since they helped to break your back and collapse the labor/ housing market) is $135000 with a new revised "safe" APR.
