Nebraska’s Illegal Immigration News

EDITORIAL: Is the United Methodist Church running an illegal alien underground railroad in Nebraska?

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 5, 2008

The Nebraska Observer recently learned that the United Methodist Church at their annual meeting April 23-May 2, in Ft. Worth, TX, adopted resolutions covering both global migration and immigration issues in the United States

The Methodist’s U.S. domestic resolution calls for “full protection of all workers, which includes the opportunity to gain legal status for all migrants.” It also urges U.S. lawmakers to ensure that immigrant laws do not rip apart families.”

Their global resolutionadvocates for the unification of families divided by borders and commends refugee resettlement work of the United Methodist Committee on Relief.”

A revision of the Social Principles replaces a statement on migrant workers with a more global perspective. “We call upon governments and all workers to ensure for foreign workers the same economic, educational and social benefits enjoyed by other citizens,” the new statement says.

So what does this mean for Nebraska MethodistsFirst and foremost, fellow Nebraska Methodists contacted by the Nebraska Observer said “that they did not get the memo from their church on this one!”  Secondly, members are not aware of this vast left-wing/liberal conspiracy by minority members of the Methodist church who are advancing an “open-borders” and unconditional “amnesty” agenda. The third point is the big one.  They are not aware that their church contributions are going to support this illegal and unpatriotic activity.

The liberal CNN authorized a poll by the Opinion Research Corporation, Jan. 14-17, 2008 which indicated that about 65% of Americans would like to see the number of illegal immigrants decreased while about 35% would like to see the numbers increased (5%) or remain the same (30%).  Now if we extrapolate this to the average Methodist church congregation or to the total United Methodist Church membership….Op’s, it looks like a lot of us didn’t vote on that measure in Ft. Worth!

We are a nation of laws. The opposite of laws is pure “anarchy“.  This group of traitors against the American citizenry within the Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist and other denominational faiths would have you believe that we can pick and choose which laws we want to obey.  If a personal conviction dictates that you don’t like the law, you can disobey the law (sounds like the 60’s doesn’t it?).  Here’s what federal immigration law says.

Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:

  • assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or
  • encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
  • knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

Disregarding those laws which we the citizens have put in place to protect us, these misguided unpatriotic anarchists continue to aid, abet, and pursue human smuggling so illegal aliens can get jobs.  This has created theft, rape, robbery, murder, repeated drunk driving, wage depression and document fraud within our communities. 

Nebraska citizens who NOW cannot comprehend what illegal immigration does only has to look at our FUTURE by studying unfettered illegal immigration results in Arizona, California, , Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Texas, for example.  It’s not rocket science folks!

These “liberal” open-borders nuts can’t justify their position based upon facts or logic, so they have to appeal to your emotional side and quote certain bible scripture to fit their actions.

This is the same kind of liberal mumbo-jumbo that the Methodist Church in Nebraska went through several years ago when one church and pastor in particular wanted to perform “same-sex” marriages.  It literally broke that church apart and the outrage from the general membership started to divide other congregations.  Fortunately, this matter was resolved.

Catholics, Lutherans, Methodist and other denominational members should be saying to their priest/pastor and fellow members “Not in my church!…Not in my back yard!”  This group of traitors against U.S. laws and the American citizenry pose a potentially serious danger to the body of any church.  If DHS and the DOJ had any “cahunes”, they’d bust these churches which have become sites for breaking laws.  

So what started this rant in the first place?  The Nebraska Observer noticed this item in a local state newspaper. 

SCHUYLER — United Methodist Church Missionary Deb Keeney will speak at two churches June 8.

She will speak at 8:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church in North Bend and at 10:30 a.m. at Christ United Methodist Church in Schuyler.

Keeney is the program manager of Justice for our Neighbors-Nebraska (JFON-NE), a faith-based outreach ministry of the United Methodist Committee on Relief. The mission of the JFON-NE is to welcome immigrants into our churches and communities by providing free legal services, education and advocacy. Volunteer driven clinics are held in Columbus on the last Tuesday of each month.

For an appointment or more information, contact JFON-NE at (402) 898-1349.

Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON) is an arm of the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church. The mission of JFON is generally to provide free immigration legal services, a warm welcome (their words) and advocacy to immigrants in their congregations and communities.  Notice that JFON is careful not to say above that they are offering these services to illegal aliens.  Instead, they say immigrants. Now we all know that legal immigrants don’t have an urgent need for these services because they are legal.  Could it be that the services they are offering are felonies under Section 274?

Justice for Our Neighbors (Immigration Legal Clinic)
Alison Brown   898-1349 or Deb Keeney    
2414 E  St.,  Omaha, NE  68107   

Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist and other denominational churches don’t believe immigration agents will make arrests inside their churches but ICE agents have the authority to arrest anyone violating immigration law, anywhere.

This would be a good time for North Bend and Schuyler residents to go and protest the Methodist church aiding and harboring illegal aliens in their community.  Let’s see, you also have a location and the time.  It might also be a good time to call ICE.  Also, notify the Nebraska Minuteman and ask them to protest.

(Remember: You read it first at the Nebraska Observer.  Not in the Omaha World-Herald, Lincoln Journal-Star or any other Nebraska news media.)

    The rule of law is the foundation for stability in any society. Churches that break immigration laws by aiding and abetting illegal aliens are destroying the foundation of this Society. When critical mass tips to lawlessness, anarchy is the result. Freedom of religion depends on the rule of law. Your freedom of religion is imposing on my freedom from your religion.
    Your behavior is illegal according to US law. You have tax free status as a religious organization. Your political actions under this tax status constitutes fraud.
    You engage in and promote illegal behavior. You lie when you claim tax exemption as religious.
    Illegal behavior is destructive. Tax cheats are illegal. You claim moral authority. However,you lack morality.

    I encourage my brothers and sisters in the Nebraska Methodist Church to become more knowledgeable about the ministries of the UMC, about our Book of Discipline, and about how decisions are made at the annual and general conference levels. Information about all of these ministries is readily accessible. Anyone can purchase and read a Book of Discipline, which explains the policies and principles of the United Methodist Church. The actions of general conference were taken in open session, with much publicity and 5,000 United Methodists in attendendance, engaging in holy conferencing and voting according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Those who disagree with these positions are welcome to present petitions to your Annual Conference to change them.

    All that being said, I am less interested in what the Book of Discipline says than in what the Bible says. I encourage us all to learn what Jesus teaches us in the gospels about issues such as immigration (yes, it’s in there), obeying the law, and loving one another.

    I would be curious to hear how contributors to this forum reconcile the actions and teachings of Jesus with their hatred of illegal immigrants?
