A Christian leader agrees believers should be concerned about the plight of those seeking a better life, but he says America simply cannot take in the millions of people who want to settle here.

Dr. Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, says a morning or evening rarely goes by when immigration is not a top headline for both cable and network news. While the facts may be the same, the opinions regarding what should be done vary. But what about Christians? Dr. Land, who serves on President Donald Trump’s advisory board for faith issues, believes preserving our national sovereignty is paramount.

“A country that does not control its borders will soon be a different kind of country,” he warns. “There are 170 million people evidently who want to come to the United States just from Latin America. We cannot take all of those people. It would fundamentally change who America is. We need to be compassionate; we need to be concerned about these people’s plight. But at the same time, we have a government of law; we have a country of laws. God ordained the civil magistrate to enforce the law.”

Land, Dr. Richard (SBC, ERLC)Dr. Land understands that there are prominent Christian leaders who support open borders and complete sanctuary for illegal aliens.

“I would say those Christian leaders have lost their moral compass,” he comments. “Their moral compass has been demagnetized by their political ideology.”

He concludes no one should be able to enter without the government’s approval.
