A Whole New World?

Does The Bible say: Do unto others as they have done upon you? Not trying to pass judgment. Are these Christian values?

If all laws which degrade human personality are unjust, then why would a devout Christian leader who signs Bibles overhaul the immigration process, intended to prioritize highly skilled workers over immigrants with family-based ties.

The Golden Rule, tells people to treat others as they would want to be treated themselves, as in, if one wants to be treated a certain way, one should treat others in that way. If everyone were to follow this rule, in theory, everyone would be treated well.

What about #POTUS parents, or his wives, and in-laws? Didn't they become American citizens through the same immigration system he wants to abolish? Do these laws remind anyone of a bygone time and place  of the 1930s and the rise of Fascism?

If you wish to be treated well in this world, you should treat others well. If everyone follows this basic philosophy, everyone will treat others well and therefore, everyone will be treated well. Does #realdonaldtrump understand this?

If an immigrant arrives in a foreign country, they have a right to request asylum. That nation is obligated to hear and evaluate their claim. It cannot kick keep them out while it’s processing the claim or if that person faces credible threats at home. If the country finds you meet the definition of a refugee, it is then obligated to shelter them.

Why is he now selling a harsh treatment of asylum-seekers? Is he is contributing in ways that could have global consequences?
