Published on January 29, 2017 By sirrahc

“When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”  — Leviticus 19:33-34 (ESV) […]

Published on January 15, 2014 By sirrahc

Those of us interested in such things sometimes talk about the negative consequences of allowing illegal immigration, but it isn’t always easy to articulate the problem. People need to understand how it might affect them directly. If they can understand how the system currently gives unfair advantages to the illegal immigrant over the legal resident […]

Keeping the I-Word

Published on April 28, 2012 By sirrahc

Brief rant… On O’Reilly last night, the Talking Points memo included a MoveOn.org video (“Drop the I-Word”) urging people not to use the term “illegal immigrant” anymore. According to the voiceover, “Calling a person illegal takes away their humanity.” Baloney! No one’s questioning their humanity! That claim is victicrat-speak. “It’s racially-charged, legally inaccurate, and morally […]

Top 10 Things Liberals Have Taught Me about Myself (Part 1 of 4)

Published on April 27, 2011 By sirrahc

You know, sometimes you just need someone else’s perspective. Another viewpoint to explain reality to you and show you things about yourself that you never knew. Things that even your friends won’t tell you, or don’t know. Heck, they’re probably guilty of it, too, and don’t even realize it. Let me give a few examples […]

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Churches & AZ Immigration Law

In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I examined and reacted to several sections of Jenny Hwang’s recent guest column in Christianity Today titled “Arizona’s Border Crisis“. Specifically, I focused on those issues raised and hypothetical scenarios given that could impact not only the illegal immigrants themselves but their families and the churches/organizations who […]

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Churches & AZ Immigration Law

In my last post (Part 1), I examined some of the issues brought up by Jenny Hwang in her recent Christianity Today article, “Arizona Border Crisis”. So far, I’ve been less than impressed with her research and reasoning. Let’s continue… This law should trouble conservatives because it greatly broadens the government mandate and could add […]

Almost everything you read these days about immigration law, especially the recently-passed Arizona legislation, has to do with what exactly does the law say, is it racist, what does “reasonable suspicion” mean, will good citizens be unfairly targeted and inconvenienced, will immigrants’ rights be abused, should law enforcement officers “waste” their time trying to identify […]

Update on Arizona Immigration Law

Published on May 2, 2010 By sirrahc

As some may already be aware, a new bill (or amendment?) was passed on Friday, April 30, that changes the recently-passed Arizona immigration law. According to the L.A. Times, Lawmakers on Thursday night changed the language to require scrutiny only of people who police stop, detain or arrest [while enforcing another law. The wording previously […]

Racial Profiling and Discrimination in Arizona

Published on April 29, 2010 By sirrahc

Have you seen some of the signs held by those protesting the new Arizona immigration law? They say things like “We have rights!” and “We are human!” Well, nothing in the law allows for inhumane treatment of anyone. (Of course, illegal immigrants do have fewer rights precisely because they are NOT LEGAL citizens — or, […]
