Alabama’s new immigration law — called the toughest in the nation — has stirred up many questions and controversies. Here in the Bible Belt, is it appropriate to look at the law through the lens of Christianity? Does it have anything to do with Christian principals?
Lawyers, judges, lawmakers and law enforcement officers are not bound by a contract with Christianity, thus, it should have no bearing in this issue.
The new law, which will affect north Jefferson County strongly, is more appropriately considered an economic issue than one of faith. Illegal immigration is a real problem with real economic implications.
