    Migrants Met With Fear, Disdain In Tijuana, Mexico



    Migrants Met With Fear, Disdain In Tijuana, Mexico..

    TIJUANA, Mexico — In 2016, when as many as 3,000 Haitians who fled Hurricane Matthew ended up stuck in Tijuana without a legal way north, locals and leaders offered housing, clothing and jobs.

    "It's something people in Tijuana would cite with pride," said Everard Meade, director of the Trans Border Institute at the University of San Diego. He summarizes Tijuana's response: "The United States couldn't do anything for them, but we did."

    Mexico has long been a welcoming crossroads of the Americas with Tijuana its northern beacon. But this time, with an estimated 10,000 Central American migrants aiming to cross the U.S. border, good will is fading and hostility is growing.

    Praying for God's mercy on these people...

    Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat!
    Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
    (Isaiah 55)
    「耶和華聖潔無比,獨一無二,沒有磐石像我們的上帝。

    Since the issue involves the citizens of Tijuana, you might want to preach to them in their own language.

    Venid, todos los que tengan sed, venid a las aguas; ¡ y el que no tiene dinero, venga, compre y coma!
    ven, compra vino y leche sin dinero y sin precio. - Isaiah 55
    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

    You know, they didn't just find themselves in Tijuana one day. They deliberately placed themselves in this situation. The Mexican government actually offered them refuge in any number of cities, but they declined it.

    The Mexican government offered them plenty of mercy but they turned it down. They are doing this for political reasons.

    Of course, God uses His church to show mercy but governments to show wrath. Governments should not allow these folks to lawlessly cross the borders. Churches should give them refuge. Governments should not allow them to work so long as they are here illegally. Churches should keep them up if that is what they desire to do or help support them in their own country.

    I use to be FAR more pro immigration (so far as illegal immigrants are concerned) than I am now. Having seen how the system is being abused, how we basically have no border, something has to be done.
    Matt 9:13
    13 "But go and learn what this means: ' I DESIRE COMPASSION,AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
    NASU

    No. There are no Roman citizens. There is no Jesuit manifesto. There are no illuminati. No matter how much you want to blame the Pope for every thing that happens on planet earth, all you are doing is gossiping. That's a sin Jude. Stop it.
