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.

Pentagon Sending Hundreds Of Additional Troops To The Southern Border

The Pentagon announced that it expects to send around 300 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, breaking with the longstanding policy of avoiding troop-migrant contact.

A spokesperson for Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Charles Summers, said Friday that his boss is expected to green light the proposal shortly. However, the troops will not be allowed to perform any law enforcement role at the border. Instead, around 100 military cooks, 160 drivers and 20 lawyers will be deployed to assist immigration agencies as they deal with the ballooning migrant crisis.

“We will have some of our troops handing out meals, therefore would come in contact with migrants,” Summers stated Friday. The spokesman added that it was an “amendment to the current policy.”

The soon-to-be-deployed troops will help provide meals to detained migrants, drive them in buses, and attorneys with the Department of Defense will help process them. The moves will allow more Department of Homeland Security officials to focus on enforcing the rule of law, rather than processing the huge numbers of illegal migrants reaching the border.

The Posse Comitatus Act forbids members of the military from performing civilian law enforcement duties on U.S. soil unless Congress gives specific authorization. Soldiers, however, are allowed to provide support services to law enforcement. There are approximately 2,900 active duty and 2,000 National Guard troops currently deployed on the southern border.

“We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!” President Donal Trump tweeted on Wednesday, following reports of Mexican military personnel having temporarily detained and disarmed two U.S. soldiers on the border. Trump has long pressured the Mexican government to do more to stop the flow of Central American migrants passing through their country.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) announced earlier in April that its agents have made 418,000 apprehensions this fiscal year to date, a rate that already surpasses the 404,142 nationwide apprehensions in the entire 2018 fiscal year. Leaders in the Department of Homeland Security have designated the situation as a crisis, and say the influx of immigrants — many of them Central American families — has stretched their resources past the breaking point.

The Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector, for example, has already spent more money on food, formula, diapers and other basic medical care for detained migrants this fiscal year than the previous year — and we are only halfway through the 2019 fiscal year.

we are being invaded ... Any one remember the story of the trojan horse

 

The Trojan Horse is a story from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside including Odysseus. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, ending the war.

 If borders and fences, and walls etc., etc. don't work then try scaling the fence to enter the White House and watch what happens. Or try entering Fort Knox whenever you feel like it.

This really is a crisis . If we continue to allow these people to invade our nation we are helping them build a whole new culture . And I seriously believe that most of these people are looking for a better life without having to pay for it. We are making a bad mistake by supplying them with the basic necessities for their "families " when most of them are coming here with children that do not belong to them .They aren't so ignorant as to not know the laws of our land by now . The ones that allow for a child led by a supposed parent that has made it through the border and can claim citizenship just by having the child in their custody. The laws need to change and Congress are the ones who have the responsibility to change them. But the leftist refuse to co-operate with the president who sincerely wants to protect the American people .

The problem is not the Whitehouse. The president sincerely wants to protect the American people . But every time he makes a move to protect our borders the liberal democrats shove another one of their "laws" in his face . The bottom line is that if the situation gets worst people living near the borders are going to grow tired and the worthless democrats and flood Washington demanding that they take action to remedy this major problem. Look at the danger the sanctionary cities are putting us in. It won't be long before we won't have any say in the matter and the liberal democrats build a voting bloc made up of illegals !
