Foreigners / Illegal Aliens
An illegal alien is a person living in a country other than the one of their birth, and is living there without having obtained permission from the government. And no where does the Bible address this issue. What it does address though, is how aliens ( known as sojourners and strangers) that are given permission from the government are to act in their new society. God instructed aliens to follow all the laws of the new land, or they where not allowed to stay. They were also subject to the same penalties for disobedience as those born in the land.
Foreigners are not to be mistreated.
They are to be loved as human beings.
Notice the curse that will come upon Nations that disobey the word of God:
Aliens will be used to destroy those nations from within.
The bottom line here is, that they are NOT following the laws of the land if they are here illegally, and as such should not be allowed to stay.
