    When Jesus said, "let the little children come to me," I don't think those send-em-home demonstrations is what he had in mind.

    Last week, Oregon took in 50 immigrant kids who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, supporting them as they await legal proceedings.

    Kitzhaber said he welcomed the children with open arms. Senator Jeff Merkley also supported the governor's position.

    On Wednesday, Hales weighed in.

    “Immigration is a federal issue. The City of Portland has no official position on this topic,” he said. “But I’m not just a mayor. I’m a father. And speaking as a father, I stand with Gov. John Kitzhaber and welcome these refugee children to Oregon.”

    Hales said that turning away the kids wouldn’t align with the spirit of Portland or Oregon.

    “Oregon has been a welcoming home to unaccompanied minors and refugee children, and will continue to be so while we wait on Congress to adopt more responsible immigration policies," Hales said.
    More than 200 kids have been taken to Washington state. California has seen over 3,000.
    The issue has sparked Portland rallies from both sides of the debate.

    They are not refugees.They are illegals under the impression that someone is going to give them amnesty.That is the only reason they are here and not some other central or south American country. Our border agents should be turning them around at the border.At most patched up and sent to Mexico seeing how Mexico willingly let them through.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Jesus isn't here.If we were to send those kids to Jesus the UN would be trying to charge us with genocide or mass murder.

    I'm delighted to hear that there are no poor, homeless, hungry, destitute people living in Portland specifically and Oregon in general. It's only right that with such unlimited wealth and prosperity for every living soul in the State that you would open up your arms and your homes to those less fortunate in the world. It's a pity you didn't look around the rest of the United States, at the poverty some of your fellow Americans live in, before you decided to take up healing the rest of the Western Hemisphere.

    I absolutely would! Especially since the conditions they are fleeing were caused by our government to begin with.

    Crossing the border illegally makes anyone an invader whether you like the connotation or not.

    I would not accept illegal immigrants in to these various states. What should be done is what happens in other countries... a humane camp should be set up and run by the federal government close to the border and the national guards of every state should be securing the border. The "refugees" (which is apparently no code for Illegal Immigrant) should be cared for and then returned.

    What he had in mind sounds a little perverted to me...

    You took that quote out of context. Take them home is not what Jesus implied. He was telling his disciples to stop preventing the children from approaching him. I'll bet posting it made you feel better though.

    Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. 14But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." 15After laying His hands on them, He departed from there.
    Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
