This past weekend on Fox News, religious contributors to the channel discussed the morality surrounding Trump’s push for a border wall with Mexico, according to Patheos. In the video, Pastor Robert Jeffress, an evangelical leader supporting Trump, responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claim that the wall is an “immorality” by citing support from the Bible.
Basing his claim in the idea that the Bible calls on governments to keep its people safe, he stated, “If walls are immoral, then God is immoral.”
“The Bible says even Heaven itself is gonna to have a wall around it...There’s nothing immoral about a wall but what is immoral is for Democrats, for political reasons, to block this president from fulfilling his God-given responsibility to keep this country safe.” -Pastor Jeffress
Jeffress also expressed his disdain for sanctuary cities as “havens of lawlessness” and stated that the United States should only show compassion to those who enter the country legally.
