What Is the Truth Concerning Americans' Wants and Needs for Immigration and Secure Borders?

Open borders or a barrier? Strategic migrant infiltration or innocent altruistic immigration? Good for America or the strategic slow death of the Western world?

These are all part of the ongoing immigration debate, the current border barrier standoff in Washington, D.C., and the current impasse being waged in Congress. The American Pastors Network (APN) frequently explores issues of immigration and how they relate to both the Bible and the Constitution on its daily, live radio program, "Stand in the Gap Today."

These topics are especially important, says APN President Sam Rohrer, with another government shutdown looming this week—dependent on agreements reached on these urgent matters.

"The majority of the American people want an orderly society and understand that the security of the American people is a high duty of the president and those in nationally elected offices," Rohrer said. "What is the truth on these concerns? Do we have facts, on-the-ground observations and honest evaluations? Or emotion-driven opinions and politically pushed policies? Americans, and especially American Christians, crave the truth in these matters, and the American Pastors Network seeks to provide it by going back to the Bible and the Constitution. With history available and facts pouring in, it is possible to objectively begin quantifying and measuring the real cost of open borders."

Historically, Rohrer added, immigration into Europe or the United States was the hope for people seeking a better life in a Western culture society; most often, people came from totalitarian-ruled cultures. Over the past years, however, the welcoming attitude and policies of Western nations toward downtrodden, freedom-seeking people has been identified as a tool for strategic manipulation by ideologies who have no desire to assimilate but to invade and collapse.

"In effect, the goal for totalitarian ideologies, be it Marxism, communism, Islam or globalism, has been to capitalize on the ignorance of the Western societies, and exploit this ignorance and infiltrate their enemies like the Trojan horse of history past," he continued. "The reality of the high cost of open borders, while downplayed by those wanting to weaken and destroy Western culture and the United States as we know it, should be obvious to people who are truth seeking and observant. The question is, what can we do in light of what is becoming so obvious on the European continent and the great divide becoming wider here in the United States on this issue?"

Listen to "Stand in the Gap Today" clips regarding this timely topic below:

Rohrer hosts "Stand in the Gap Today" with Pennsylvania Pastors Network Executive Director Gary Dull and North Carolina Pastors Network President Dave Kistler. The three discuss cultural issues and headlines from a biblical and constitutional perspective on the program that airs on over 400 stations. Besides "Stand in the Gap Minute," the "Stand in the Gap" radio ministry also includes "Stand in the Gap Weekend," which re-airs the most engaging segments from the previous week on about 240 stations.
