John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Deputy Chief Border Patrol Agent Says ‘Fences And Walls’ Are Just One Step In Stopping Illegal Immigration Crisis

Deputy Chief Border Patrol Agent Roy Villareal said on “Fox & Friends” Monday that “fences and walls” are just one step in securing the U.S. southern border.

He claimed America’s current illegal immigration crisis is “unprecedented” and called for a more comprehensive approach to border security.

“In my 30 years of working for the Border Patrol, I have never witnessed the situation that we’re faced with today,” Villareal declared. “We are being overwhelmed with migrants — Principally family units and children and then people that are from countries other than Mexico.”

He also said ground sensors, cameras, drones, and other technology should be used in conjunction with a wall or fence to attack the issue from all sides.

“What we need along the border is a border enforcement system. There is no singular solution. What we need is a combination of factors,” Villareal added. “A border infrastructure, roads that provide access to the border, technology, ground sensors, night vision cameras, drones and then of course wall or fencing to secure the border. It is a comprehensive system. It’s complex. It’s multifaceted and what we need is an entire border enforcement system.”

“After 30 years of working in border enforcement I can attest to the fact that walls, border fences do work. I was here in the San Diego back in the late ’80s, early ’90s. We began putting up fences in the mid-1990s and that had a dramatic impact on the flow of illegal migration … It brings control to the border.”

Villareal also claimed the idea of a border wall has nothing to do with a specific race or nationality.

“The wall doesn’t see color. It doesn’t see nationality. It’s designed as a border security structure. It’s designed to provide a delineation of the border. It provides an opportunity for agents to respond to any sort of traffic at the border, whether it be an illegal migrant, whether it be narcotic traffickers — Whatever that threat may be, it provides an opportunity for us to respond,” he concluded.
