What Would Brigham Young Do?

Wow! Who haven't we heard from? This, from the Central Utah Daily Herald. Book of Mormon prophecies bear weight in respect to the current immigration debate. 1 Nephi chapters 13, 21, 22: The Lord permitted the Gentiles to take control of this land so we (their descendants) could aid Lehi's descendants to become spiritually enlightened and economically prosperous, for the building up of New Jerusalem, whose inhabitants will be largely Lamanites. (3 Nephi 21:23-24.) 1 Nephi 21:22 and 2 Nephi 6:6-7: The Lord admonishes Latter-day Saints of Gentile (European) ancestry living in this land to carry Lehi's descendants upon our shoulders. We will be severely punished if we don't. (3 Nephi 20:15-16.) D&C 42:39: We are commanded to financially aid the Lamanite people. Most of the immigrants Americans want to deport are future church members. Spencer W. Kimball, citing 2 Nephi 3:24, said a future prophet of the church will be Lamanite and will do great miracles, to the bringing of the Lamanites into the gospel fold. George W. Scott, Orem

This is a misrepresentation of Mormon doctrine. The first and foremost intent was to treat the indigenous inhabitants of the UNITED STATES solicitously, in gratitude for the fact that we did prevail over them. The second intent is to treat those who immigrate LEGALLY to the United States just as solicitously, particularly Latin Americans with Lamanite blood.

However, it is not appropriate to use scripture to justify breaking our laws. The Bible also states "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's..." This implies we are to respect earthly authority. And that means the descendants of the Lamanites who wish to emigrate here must respect earthly BORDERS. That means take a number and get in line like everyone else.
