The City Council in League City voted 6-2 on Tuesday night in support of a resolution that would prohibit city departments from cooperating with federal directives or requests to process or house undocumented immigrants.

The county and League City read the scriptures incorrectly. In place of “Suffer the little children, and forbid them not,” they read “Suffer the little children and forbid them.”

And Patricia, you are taking scripture out of context.
Luke 18:16 "King James Bible
But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God."
NAB "Jesus, however, called the children to himself and said, “Let the children come to me and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. "
Which means precisely what it states, don't keep the children from Jesus. You should not take a Biblical phrase out of context and use it for your own purpose.


Yea Patricia what about all those African, and Haiti kids who need American help? Are we allowed to help hungry disadvantaged AFRICAN, HAITI, AND DOMINICAN REBUBLIC KIDS? How many of those are yall helping beside those in Obama's family? Why are you and others not doing more to help them come here? Why are yall treating Canadian kids, and Mexican kids different than Honduras and El Salvador's kids? Why is it that nobody is on Obama's case about that?
You want to talk Jesus? Lets!!!! Jesus did not treat a Samaritan any less than a Jew, if He did we gentiles would not have access to salvation. So why is it there are discrepancies in how yall treat some who comes to our borders for help, juxtaposed to how others are treated?
God is no respecter of persons, ( Acts 10:34 ) please tell me why "Uncle Sugga" and those who blindly follow him are doing so with this border crisis? "TALK BACK TO ME F YOU CAN!" " I'II BE HERE WAITING ON YOU!" Don't take to long because a bunch of hard-drives might crash like they did last night! LOLOLOLOLOLLOL[smile]
I'll bet George Bush is the reason huh? 1)How about lets Secure the Border 2) Create/devise a workable, fair Comprehensible Immigration Reform Policy 3) Work it in a fair manner for all people, weather they are from Mexico, Canada, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, or Africa! How about that?
