Immigration - an unavoidable truth

I believe that every human is valuable.

I believe that the laws of our land should be enforced and followed.

We have an immigration mess in our country.  We need to fix it, because the problem is not going to go away.

Here is an unavoidable truth.  It is impossible to make all undocumented people leave.  Any suggestion that they should leave is not based in the realm of possibility.

 Some years ago I did some math.  If there are 12 million undocumented people in our country and you could put them all on Greyhound buses, that is 50 people on each bus which is 50' long, it would make a long line of buses.  The line in fact, bumper to bumper, would stretch from Tijuana, Mexico to Battle Creek Michigan.  For that matter, Greyhound only has 1,100 buses in the US.  If you could commandeer all of their buses it would take every bus making 218 trips. My point is this... the problem is too large to make the people leave.  It is not going to happen so instead of shouting and arguing that they should leave, we should find a way to resolve the issues that we have.

As in any discussion, we need to find ways to talk to each other with kindness and grace.  This can be an emotionally charged issue.  May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable to God.  Psalm 19:14

It's a beautiful day in God's world be sure to see the good.
