A Biblical and Historical View of our Current Immigration Crisis
by Mrs. Rachel Pendergraft
Our nation is in the midst of a crisis, unprecedented in numbers and racial diversity. This crisis poses very real dangers to the stability of all levels of our society whether it be educational, political, economic, or domestic.
Unfortunately, whenever the topic of immigration comes up it is all too often met with idyllic sounding phrases such as “our country is a country of immigrants” or “Immigrants built America”.
Even the objection to unrestrained immigration, once prevalent among Christian conservatives, is increasingly being called into question. Some Conservatives may still speak out in opposition to immigration, but we find that on a local basis, the Churches of America are in fact leading the way toward more immigration, by their acceptance and active outreach programs toward the new immigrants to America.
Any statements against immigration are labeled racist, bigoted, hateful and unChristian. Conservative Church leaders tell their congregations that while immigration policies may be wrong, our Christian faith nevertheless compels us to open up our hearts, our homes, our neighborhoods, and our places of worship to the immigrant.
The reasons Christian conservatives often tout as proof that immigration is not healthy to the nation as a whole are meaningless unless the race issue is factored in.
The reasons most often given are:
1) The new immigrants do not want to learn the English language
2) The new immigrants are an economic burden
3) The new immigrants bring diseases
4) The new immigrants won’t let go of their strange customs
And to summarize the complaints about immigration by conservatives it is generalized into the immigrants unwillingness to assimilate into American society.
Before I go further, let me state, what many of you already know, the immigrants I am referring to are not immigrants of European ancestry. And there need not be a breakdown of legal versus illegal immigrants. Whether legal or not, it is the racial background of the immigrants that brings the crisis.
We are not in the midst of a crisis because we are being over run with German, French, Czech, or other non-English speaking white people.
We are not in the midst of a crisis because our shores are being flooded with Europeans fleeing starvation as the Irish had to, or by Europeans escaping the rise of Communism as the Hungarians or Lithuanians were forced to do.
Our national prosperity is not being hampered by the ethnic customs of the Swedes, Norwegians, or Dutch.
America is a land that was blessed with great natural resources and abundance. This land can and has supported multitudes of people from the different nations of Europe; All with different languages, economic backgrounds, and different customs. America is indeed the gathering places of the sons and daughters of Europe.
Using the excuse of language, economics, or custom in objecting to the new immigrants is ludicrous.
It is so obviously ludicrous that the immigrant rights groups can see right through it and it is why they call anyone who works for immigration reform a racist. It is easy for them to see that the objection is based upon race, but the conservative leaders because they lack a back bone and are cowards, cry, “No its not the race, it’s the culture” No wonder the conservative camp is losing the battle and are so easily painted as two faced by the liberal media.
For example, in 1996 the Christian Coalition helped to defeat legislation, which would have cut legal immigration by a modest one-third. The group said that this reduction was against “family values” because it would have prevented immigrants from bringing in their relatives.
And many Christian organizations have praised Hispanic immigrants for being so family oriented saying they are a positive influence on the material driven white families of America. Their proof? Hispanics typically have very large families with a stay at home mom - easy to do when you live off white taxpayers.
If indeed its only a culture clash than instead of working to stop immigration, conservatives should put their effort behind helping the new immigrants assimilate and educating those who don’t want to assimilate about the benefits of being truly American.
The fact is the white race produces a higher level of civilization. Historically they take greater care in protecting the innocent, the elderly, the fatherless, those who are defenseless or disabled, and our natural resources. While our people have hit bottom on numerous occasions, it has always been as a result of turning away from the natural laws that God created. And the foremost law that has always been violated was one of racial purity.
The Bible tells us that the love of money is the root of all evil. Miscegenation is often not viewed as a result of this Biblical truth, but it is.
The colored races have never been able to conquer the white race militarily.
Great civilizations of antiquity have fallen due to race mixing and the colored races have either been imported for labor and profit or upon the white man entering a heathen land - the natives were not expelled but used for labor and profit.
Three examples will make my point
1. Egypt James Henry Breasted, in his History of Egypt, p. 28 says, "The conclusion once maintained by some historians, that the Egyptians were of African Negro origin, is now refuted.”
Quoting from Ernst Cox’s “White America” published in 1923 -
The consolidation of the kingdoms of upper and lower Egypt by Menes, the first Pharaoh, occurred 3400 years B.C. the accession of Teharka, a mulatto, to the throne occurred about 688 B.C. “it was at this juncture that we can trace the rising fortunes of Prince Teharka, he was the son of a Nubian woman, and his features, as preserved in contemporary sculpture, shows unmistakably Negroid characteristics. There is, then, an interval of some twenty-seven centuries between the first Pharaoh and the date when a mulatto inherits the throne. It was of this period, when negroids were upon the throne, that Isaiah foresaw the downfall of Egypt."
Of Egypt we read in Isaiah 20 “At the same time spake the Lord by Isaiah, the son of Amos saying. Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy lions, and put off they shoe from they foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot, and the Lord said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath waked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia; so shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot.”
In II Kings, 18: 21 we read regarding Egypt, “Now, behold, thou trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt; on which if a man lean, it will go unto his hand and pierce it: so is Pharaoh King of Egypt unto all that trust on him.”
At one time the Adamite Egyptians were a great friend to the Israelites. Joseph had married an Egyptian princess, the daughter of the priest of On, worshippers of the one true God. The Israelites found comfort here among racial brothers and sisters.
The great achievements of Egypt were in its earlier dynasties or during what was called the Old Kingdom
Again quoting from White America: "The sixth dynasty marks a foreign policy of increasing vigor. The Negro tribes of the south were compelled to contribute quotas to the Egyptian armies; and the use of these levies against white neighbors with whom the Egyptians were at war marks an unsavory epoch in the history of the contact of races. The non-creative races compelled to rely upon their own resources in war or in peace, are insignificant competitors with the white man. But armed with the white man’s inventions, they are transformed into formidable competitors, immediately attaining ranks which nature has not conferred upon them and assuming an influence, which they are incapable of maintaining. The later Pharaohs use of multitudes of Negro troops against the enemies of Egypt had much to due with the final decay of Egyptian civilization
Certain of the Pharos sought to prevent the mongrelization of Egypt by restricting Negro immigration, even to the extent of inflicting the death penalty upon the immigrant. But the Negro was a docile, subservient woman and soldier, and these characteristics created a demand to the influence of later less enlightened pharaohs. So they came for centuries; not by force of arms in battle array, but as a subjugated and enslaved people. The blood of a people who had not produced a civilization should have been instrumental in lowering the status of the Egyptians so that progress ceased, is a lamentable event in world history. Negro blood made the proud Egyptian a mongrel.”
2. India - Madison Grant, in his The passing of the Great Race, says: “The Hindu today speaks a very ancient form of the Aryan language, but there remains not one recognizable trace of the white conquerors who poured in through the passage of the Northwest."
The ancient literature of the Aryan is embodied in the RigVeda and the Epics. The Vedic times cover approximately the six hundred years intervening between 2000 B.C. and 14000 B.C. These writings afford us a fair conception of Aryan society and reveal a vigorous, white, conquering people, well organized, respecting their women, already in possession of ancient laws, glorying in agriculture, passionately religious, imposing their faith and culture upon the surrounding colored population. Themselves they designate as a people of “fair complexion” and those whom they have subdued as “colored,” From the Punjab these blond Caucasians extended their way, imposing themselves by force and the influence of superior culture.
When occupying the Punjab, the Aryans did not expel those whom they conquered. Through the history of their conquests, the Aryans have not expelled a subjugated people whom they could profitably enslave.
The Aryan conquerors of India instituted a caste system based not on vocation as now, but on marriage within the class. The highest caste was of the warrior and priesthood and was reserved for the Aryan. The lowest class was for the nonwhite and was the merchant and laboring class.
Quoting again from Ernst Cox, “There has ever been a deplorable freedom between the white and non-white races which has resulted in an increasing number of mix breeds. In India, cast prevented interracial marriage, but was incapable of preventing illegitimate unions. The Aryans, intent upon retaining race purity, yet unable to restrain men of their race from unions with colored women, and in most instances unable to discover the guilty white, turned its wrath upon the mix breed. The half-castes were not permitted to reside within the limits of the city; were reviled by all, both black and white; and finally, the Aryan laws provided that, under certain conditions, the soldiers might slay them without mercy. It is evident that such extreme measures should not be permanently enforced, most of all by men of the Aryan race, whose history is generally marked by tolerance to race and creeds.”
Originally Hinduism taught that “caste” was the will of God to keep the races separate. When the illegitimate mix breeds of India, 26 centuries ago had increased until they outnumbered whites, An aristocratic mix breed arose named Buddha, who stripped Hinduism of racial caste, and sought a religious reformation that would level the races of India
Today, the inhabitants of India, are the same breed as the “untouchables” of ancient Aryan dominated India.
3. South America - The Aryan/Caucasian influence on South America can be seen in the remains of the ancient pyramids, ancient highways, and temples. The race mixing as in Egypt and India thousands of years ago toppled a once advanced civilization. When the white Castilian Spanish came to South America in the 1500s they found a barbaric culture of human sacrifice and vile superstition amongst ancient ruins.
The difference between North and South America including Mexico exists in the reason for whites coming. In South America, whites came in search of wealth. Not bringing any women with them, they married into the native population to form profitable alliances. This was not done at first with approval. After it was seen to be a problem, white women were encouraged to go to South America so that white unions could be started. This gave rise to a new white aristocracy in South America with a very very small white population being left mostly in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Chili. However, soon the laws against intermarriage that were set up to promote white families were overturned, again for political alliances.
In North America however, it was not conquered for the sake of profit, but for the sake of Jesus Christ and Christianity. Entire families came to plant communities for the Lord and the new nation prospered.
By my examples of great civilizations destroyed through the love of money and the resulting “alliances” with non whites and resulting mixed breeds, you should begin to see how relevant the discussion is to our situation now in America, and in fact all of our white sister nations.
We tend to blame all of the problems our people face in this nation upon the anti-Christ Jews. It is true that they oppose everything that is good, decent, and orderly. It is true, that while they oppose, in theory, race mixing for themselves, they advance it among our people. It is true that the dedicated Jewish Marxist knows that the surest way to conquer America is by promoting the immigration of millions of non-whites to our shores. It is true that they have control over the publishing houses, educational institutions, Christian seminaries, media corporations, and there is scarcely an institution in our modern society in which they do not have premier influence. They have indeed deceived our Christian people and have used the so-called preachers of God to do it.
But for the love of money, our people as a whole have allowed themselves to be deceived and to believe a lie. Our people relish in their own deception and yet at the same time wonder why their job is being done by someone in India, Mexico, or other third world nation.
There is an elite mentality among some of our people and the Jewish circles they run in, that as Pastor Robb says, “relishes in having a lower class to serve them.” This globally conscious crowd belittles anyone who opposes immigration and calls them haters and bigots. But its this same liberal class who secretly likes that idea of being waited on and serviced by non-whites. While they work to bring in more cheap labor, they look down upon whites that resent having their jobs sold to foreign non-white nations and jobs in the U.S. watered down on the pay scale.
Immigrants are taking significant advantage of affirmative action programs originally set up to benefit disadvantaged native-born minorities. This is the conclusion of Washington-based researcher Jim Robb in his book, Affirmative Action for Immigrants: The Entitlement Nobody Wanted.
The heart of the problem, says Robb, is that affirmative action favors certain races and ethnic groups, irrespective of their country of origin. Thus a naturalized Asian Indian is counted the same, under affirmative action, as a native-born black American.
Today about 75 percent of all legal immigrants living in the U.S. are Hispanic, Asian, and black, the groups covered by affirmative action. Many of these immigrants are not citizens, but for all practical purposes their lack of citizenship poses no problem to obtaining employment—and benefiting from affirmative action. One reason is a provision of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, which outlaws hiring preference for citizens.
A new report by the Center
for Immigration Studies concludes that over 33 million legal immigrants
and illegal aliens now live in the United States, an increase of 2 million
immigrants since the recent April 2000 Census7. How significant is an
increate of 33 million people?
33 million is larger than the current population of Canada.
33 million is the combined populations of the 20 largest cities in the U.S in 2000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, Dallas, San Antonio, Detroit, San Jose, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Jacksonville, Columbus, Austin, Baltimore, Memphis, and Milwaukee.
33 million people in the U.S. would require over 12 million housing units8, would require 15.8 million more passenger cars9, and would consume about 825 million barrels of oil a year (25 barrels per person per year). 33 million Americans will consume all of the economically recoverable oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in less than four years time.10
33 million people can be expected to consume 2.26 billion cubic feet of roundwood per year (80 cubic feet per person). Over 75 million acres of forest will be needed to supply 33 million people with their paper and wood needs.11
Post 1970 immigrants and their
descendants have added more than 55 million people to our country; this is the
equivalent of absorbing all of Central America in thirty years. Yet Central
America's, Mexico's, and China's populations have grown even larger. Clearly, we
are not able to address the world's problems by attempting to absorb their
The Population Reference Bureau projects the U.S. will add 140 million people to
it population between 2002 and 2050, thus increasing the population of the U.S
from 287 million to 420 million12.
In 2002, the fertility rate of the U.S. was higher than that
of 70 other countries, "including less developed China, Korea and
Thailand." Indeed, four other less developed countries also have a
fertility rate lower than that of the U.S.: Iran, Cuba, Singapore, and Sri
Former U.S. Census Bureau demographer Jeffrey Passel (now with
the Urban Institute) issued a conservative estimate there are "at least 8.5
million undocumented foreigners in the United States." This means that the
population of illegal aliens in the U.S. is larger than the population of any
one of the following 41 states: Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia,
Massachusetts, Indiana, Washington, Tennessee, Missouri, Wisconsin, Maryland,
Arizona, Minnesota, Louisiana, Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky, South Carolina,
Oklahoma, Oregon, Connecticut, Iowa, Mississippi, Kansas, Arkansas, Utah,
Nevada, New Mexico, West Virginia, Nebraska, Idaho, Maine, New Hampshire,
Hawaii, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska,
Vermont, or Wyoming.
About 70 percent of the foreign-born
population in the U.S. in 2000 entered the U.S. after 1980, and more than 40
percent entered the U.S. after 1990. The Select Commission
on Immigration and Refugee Policy discussed in 1980 implementing a cap on
immigrant admissions of 425,000 per year. In 1982 the "Bumpers
Amendment" to cap legal immigrant admissions at this level was nearly
passed by the U.S. Senate. Yet it did not pass, in good part because some
senators believed the numbers to be still too high and opposed amnesties for
illegal aliens. In 1986, however, an amnesty did pass with no cap on legal
immigrant admissions. Today legal immigration alone into the U.S. is running at
over twice the level called for in the above-mentioned "Bumpers
Approximately one out of five babies born in the U.S. in 2000 had a foreign-born mother.
These are just a few examples of the immigration crisis and its affects on the economy here in America. While some of these examples are of jobs being given to non-whites in foreign lands, they are able to get those jobs because of the overwhelming influence of aliens in our midst. And still Americans almost across the board take part in financing their demise by investing in corporations that send jobs overseas. Again, it’s the love of money.
The Bible tells us in Leviticus 24:22 that “Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of our own country:
Strangers who live in our land have basic rights in regard to their personal safety. But, we do not have an obligation to bring them here or keep them here. And those that are here temporarilily must obey the commandments of God.
Deuteronomy 31:12 says “.Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the Lord your God, and observe to do all the words of his law"
Our people are told in Genesis 12:3
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
But while all families of the earth are to be blessed through our people
We must remain loyal to our heritage.
1 Peter 2: 9
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people”
Amos 3:2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth” The word “known” is the same word as used in as “know” in marriage relationship such as Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew eve” Israel is the bride of Christ and he has only known Israel as his wife, but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t dealing with the other nations of the world.
His peculiar and anointed people will rule and reign with him one day when the New Jerusalem - the government of God comes down upon earth. And who will we rule and reign over? Over the whole creation in the bondage of corruption!
“Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travailed in pain together until now."
But while we wait for the return of Christ, our nation must still adhere to the laws he gave us. Not the laws, which were intended to bring us closer to God, that is the law that became burdensome. And Christ came in the place of animal sacrifice, and purple fringe, and anything that was meant to act as an intercessor between us and the father. Jesus in the only way to the father.
But yes, the laws regarding the function of government, of society, are to be followed lest we are cursed by the natural God instituted law of consequence.
Deuteronomy 28:15 tells us “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statues which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee:
And one of these curses we read regards the stranger in verse 43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low
Verse 44 ..he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
Our people have tolerated sin in our land for the sake of profit. We have through history, given up our heritage for gold and silver. We do not safe guard our children from evil. And as a result race mixing has occurred and we have become the tail.
Our people must be told that they are suffering because they are selling their birthright, and refuse to obey the laws of God.
The suffering will worsen - but in this land of the regathering we know there is hope. God allows our punishment to continue - for our people to reap what they sew. It is the last great lesson - and the over comers of this generation will join with those of the past to rule at Christ’s side.
There are 6 things that are people need to do
1. Prepare to wage war: Not in the material sense, but psychologically
Jer. 51:20 “Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms
No kingdom or government will dominate but the kingdom of the Lord
2. Sound the warning
“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgressions and the house of Jacob, their sins.” Isa. 58:1
3.Return to the land and get out of the cities
“Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth.” Isaiah 5:8
Matthew 11:20 “Then he began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not.
Cosmopolitan: international - a mingling of the races
2: Develop a relationship with God
: Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you “ James 4:8 Before God has used any of his messengers, they have developed a close spiritual relationship with the almighty.
1. And the most important of all - Move with fear before God
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever” Ps. 111:10
I put this as the most important: because we must begin with a healthy dose of fear. Not a fear of our enemies, but a fear of God.
Our nation can receive healing, first and foremost by beginning to fear God and the consequences of not obeying God. Right now with the stranger rising above us: there is only bewilderment. But God is not through with us yet, and in time the lower station that our people will reach will instill within them fear - out of that fear they will reach out to God for help.
And I’ll close with a favorite verse of many of us, including Pastor Robb.
With the fear and respect of God once again in the hearts of our people:
God tells them in 2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people which are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways: - then will I hear from heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.
The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low ..he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. nnnnnnnDeut. 28: 43-44nnnnn
