How SHOULD our borders be being protected
against illegal immigration?

Hello, Steven. You have asked a good question. I am going to answer your concern, as every minister should, from a Biblical perspective. It is true that the Constitution grants limited powers to Congress concerning the United States, and all laws respecting it must be initiated by Congress. We are to respect those powers as believers as well as non believers.
However, while Congress has prescribed limited powers as delineated within our Constitution, and everyone situated within these United States are subject to those laws, whether an immigrant or native born. However, when it comes to the superior laws among nations, it is God Himself that has prescribed His mandate as prescribed within the Word of God. God recognizes, and has even ordained national borders, which begin back in Genesis chapter eleven with the fall of the Tower of Babel.
Notwithstanding these God-ordained borders, God has reserved to Himself the minimum required moral conduct that is to be observed within all borders throughout His creation. He allows us to make up our own laws, but those laws must be uniformly enforced throughout those borders as to all people within those prescribed borders. If the there are laws prescribed for the occupants therein, God mandated that those laws shall be enforced uniformly. If a man commits a crime, he shall be punished according to the law, whether immigrant or native born. But God strictly forbids the legislating of a crime strictly for being present within any nation's borders. That is power God has reserved strictly and solely to Himself. Thus, if Congress, or the Constitution, presumes to take on that power, it defies God, and that nation will certainly suffer the judgment of God as prescribed in His Higher Law, that is, the Word of God. "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation." Romans 13:1 & 2.
Allow me to refer you, and everyone reading this, to some principles as set forth from the Higher Law, the Word of God, which is even recognized by Constitutional principles. State's Constitutions, such as California, establishes right in its very first issue, "All People are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights." Article I, Section 1. Inalienable Rights are not acquired by statute, or by laws passed by the Legislature, but by nature. Such position is confirmed by our Declaration of Independence, which we unreservedly honor every year on the 4th of July, "We hold these truth to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights..." From whence derive we such inalienable rights? Yes, only from our Creator! And yes, the Creator is even capitalized in our Declaration of Independence which was unanimously approved by all of Congress collectively, without one descent.
Now let's consider the Words of our Creator. "One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you." Exodus 12:49. Whether we will receive it our not, that word "stranger" is the word "alien", and never once is it prefixed by our Creator with the adjective "Illegal." "And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself." Leviticus 19:33, 34. "Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God." Leviticus 24:22. "And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger [alien], or a sojourner; that he may live with thee." Leviticus 25:35. "Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger [alien] that is with him. Ye shall not respect persons in judgment." Deuteronomy 1:16, 17. "For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger [alien]:" Deuteronomy 10:17 -19.
Our Creator even swears according to His Word, to bring bring great and damnable judgment against any and all nations, just as He would if it practiced witchcraft, all those who oppress the aliens within their land, "And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger [alien] from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts." Malachi 3:5. Dare we defy the Lord God Almighty? Are we stronger than He? If we believe that God should bless America, then we must NOT provoke His Wrath upon America by oppressing the strangers [aliens] that dwell among us. God forbid! We are obligated to respect aliens just as we do widows and orphans [fatherless]. Shall we, or Congress, propose to ostracize widows and orphans? Of course not. And if we so presumed that we could, do we think we shall escape the judgment of God on our nation? In fact, when any nation presumes to oppress the aliens within their midst, they risk their nation becoming overcome by those very same aliens, who may institute the laws to oppress those native born. This too is a sound principle of Scripture. Just so anyone thinks I have an ax to grid stating what I have said, I set forth the following;
- Ron Branson, born in St. Louis from a union of male and female parents who were born in the America, namely Missouri and Illinois, who were both saved from sin by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Finally, let me say, as I sat before a judge who disagreed with me in Superior Court, he stated, "Mr. Branson, if you disagree with the laws we have here in California, you need to take that up with the legislators in Sacramento." Upon hearing these words, the Lord spoke to me internally, saying, "Behold, there stands before you, judge, one greater that all the legislators within the State of California." and God told me that not only was this judge, but all those legislators of which he relies, shall one day stand before me in judgment pursuant to I Corinthians 6:2, "Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world?" It has been my joy to respond to your very valid concern respecting our borders around America from the Word of God.

"The privilege against self-incrimination is neither accorded to the passive resistant, nor to the person who is ignorant of his rights, nor to one indifferent thereto. It is a FIGHTING clause. It's benefits can be retained only by sustained COMBAT. It cannot be claimed by attorney or solicitor. It is valid only when insisted upon by a BELLIGERENT claimant in person." McAlister vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 90, 26 S.Ct. 385, 50 L.Ed. 671; Commonwealth vs. Shaw, 4 Cush. 594, 50 Am.Dec. 813; Orum vs. State, 38 Ohio App. 171, 175 N.E. 876.
