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.

Am I the only one who sees the irony or is it great hypocrisy in a League City City Council that takes its case to court to be able to pray at council meetings and then works to pass a resolution to keep out all those awful, dangerous children from Central America who might need asylum, mercy and compassion from League City Christians who so believe in prayer?

The good people of League City might want to reread Luke 10: 25-37. It leaves little question as to who our neighbors are — Jesus indicated loving our neighbors was the second greatest commandment to loving Him.
