Faith Leaders for America approves the immigration fix worked out by the Trump administration, says spokesman Pastor Sam Rohrer.

The group released a public letter to the president commending him for a policy that, according to Rohr, is "theologically sound" and constitutionally legal, and has a historical basis that's defensible.

Obviously not every religious leader will agree on the theology, he acknowledges, so he explains Faith Leaders thinking. He points to Old Testament scripture referring to a "stranger" who came into Israel with the honest intention of becoming part of the Jewish culture.

"But if you go to the book of Isaiah," he adds, "you'll find the use of stranger there. It is a stranger that comes with the intent to do harm."

God never said to invite in a stranger who would pillage the ground, burn the cities, and refuses to assimilate to the predominant culture, he adds.
