Another immigration travesty

I read in the news today about the sad status of many children of illegal immigrants.  They are now practically people without a country.  They have frequently been here since early childhood and never returned to their country of origin.   Yet our country, sadly and unwisely, refuses to grant them legal status.  (See http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/us_and_canada/10209099.stm).   How is this in any way Christian when God clearly instructs us to treat the alien among us as a native-born (see my pages commenting on a previous news article).  I urge Congress to join together to immediately pass laws granting paths to legal residency for such people.  It is only just, fair and Christian.   Anything less is a travesty of justice and downright mean.
