Re: “When Immigration Politics and Faith Collide

Quoting out of the Bible is fine if what is said is supported by a text that can be verified. One verse is often not enough.

As for what is happening now, it is blown out of proportion. The idea is for a 120 day stay on bringing refugees while the new administration seeks better vetting. I am not sure that security vetting is even possible. But he new administration needs to see where the existing effort has been lacking and seek to do better. That is not an unreasonable request. Since fewer than half the Countries which contain large populations of Muslims are on the list, I do not see anything racist about it. It is common sense.

Re: “When Immigration Politics and Faith Collide

It's dangerous to quote out of the Bible - particularly the Old Testament - to justify the sheltering of "foreigners," because a key tenet seems to be AVOIDING integration with the Philistines and Babylonians! King Saul was commanded to kill 'em all - men, women, children, and livestock!

Christ changed things up, by teaching that EVERYBODY - even the despised Samaritans - is our neighbor. And most Christians accept that and are happy to welcome and provide aid to refugees.

HOWEVER... there's a big divide between being a "welcoming city" and a "sanctuary city."

I have friends from a half-dozen countries, including Iraq, who have come here seeking peace and prosperity, and I welcome them. At the same time, I appreciate that my government is trying to keep TERRORISTS out. Let's welcome people who want to coexist, but reject the "Death to America" Faction, huh?

Re: “Idaho Legislator, Sponsor of Anti-Sanctuary Bill: 'I've Been Called Things That Wouldn't Be Printable'

The bill creates a registry of illegal aliens. Not criminal immigrants, just because u are arrested does not make u guilty. Innocent until proven guilty, meaning at the time they research the immigration status you are legally Innocent. This law is unamerican and unconstitutional.

A great book. You might want to take a look at the movie, "The River Why", too, starring Zach Gilford, Amber Heard, William Hurt, Kathleen Quinlan and William Devane. https://dvd.netflix.com/Movie/70132580 or www.theriverwhy.com

Thank you for your honest reporting on this. I also want to recognize Lindsay and Holly Thomas Mowery for their interpreting work, as well. The team of interpreters worked together well.

The insane age of open borders is over. Lol @ the irony of liberals supporting something pushed by multi billion dollar corporations exclusively for profit.

I DO NOT understand all the dislikes and negative comments. Do you not realize what's at stake here? I would love to have you explain your reasons for the dislikes. Would appreciate hearing why you are so willing to protect criminals.

Re: “Idaho Legislator, Sponsor of Anti-Sanctuary Bill: 'I've Been Called Things That Wouldn't Be Printable'

Having grown up in CA where ILLEGALS are everywhere AND cost the taxpayers a LOT of money each year, I agree with this bill. So-called "sanctuary cities" that PROTECT those being harmed are one thing, but these are not those type of cities. These are trying to protect persons who BROKE THE LAWS OF AMERICA and NOT those who came here LEGALLY and deserve the chance to a better themselves and their families. They also violate FEDERAL LAW, which the liberals usually claim is superior to state law. I know people who came here LEGALLY, spent THOUSANDS of dollars and many long years to become CITIZENS. They would be appalled at these cities protecting those who refused to follow the same rules they CHOSE to.

Re: “Boise "Welcoming City" Resolution Affirms City Commitment to Immigrants, Disgust With National Immigration Actions

Boise needs to stand up and be the sanctuary city that it should be.......there are needs not being met and only the strong can stand firm against the likes of Trump and his fascist cronies who are trying to take unlawful control of what the right thing is to do regarding those less fortunate. Be a voice for true freedom Boise. Stop "the ban"

Too bad Idaho citizens have to endure such a hateful ignorant "lawmaker".....he should be, but probably won't be, ashamed for such a position.

@ Jon-
How long have you lived here? If not before Mayor Bieter's time, trust me, things were MUCH worse. He has cleaned up the politics in Boise, and I hope he can roll on to Governor.

Re: “UPDATE: Idaho House Kills Bill That Would Outlaw Lottery's Electronic Touch-Tabs

Anti-Trust laws need to be implemented on the World Wide Monopolized Media, mostly fake news coming from these monoliths...Part them out and sell them off. As for your Hitler comment Hitler was not elected by the people he took power by force, like the rioters brown shirts in the streets today for example Berkeley California suppressing free speech....... When you report Fake News and incite the people to riot it has consequences called sedition..

Re: “A New State Department Order to Revoke Visas Could Have Far-Reaching Effects

This signals the beginning. Next they will go after our own citizens. The educated, the dissenters, the press. Very dangerous days ahead as we become like countries we have only read about. Think it can't happen? Read history. That's what they always think.

Re: “Boise "Welcoming City" Resolution Affirms City Commitment to Immigrants, Disgust With National Immigration Actions

I am willing to put money into helping the Recall of the Mayor if somebody wants to organize a Recall and get a signed petition going...... Like I say do you want the city council creating problems or solving problems............... Time for new blood........Article VI, Section 6 of the Idaho Constitution guarantees the right of the people to recall any board member.
