Sanctuary cities and states are using taxpayer funds to help illegal immigrants and I recently learned of a local nonprofit health network accepting donations under their 501 3c tax exempt status to help with an illegal immigrant’s legal defense. I find it disconcerting that the church does something similar by using tithes and offerings to aid illegals. Certainly people of faith can rationalize that they are helping the poor; however, they are also encouraging those who should and could immigrate legally to subvert federal law. James said, “If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker” (James 2:8-11 NIV).
