Sorry to disappoint the JUDGE NOT and LOVE EVERYONE crew, but it’s really really not.
In fact, “open borders” is neither Christian nor Biblical
Not only is the seat of the Catholic church, the Vatican itself, protected with walls, borders, gates and strict guidelines for entry, but historically, cities and dwelling places within the Bible all had boundaries and borders, all the way to the beginning and the Garden of Eden.
Even Heaven has borders, a gate and strict policies for entry.
A common shaming tactic that liberals use on Christians is the good ole “Judge Not” or “you are judgemental” rant to shut us up from speaking out against evil and thus disobeying God’s command on this matter.
They also use the line that God tells us to “love everyone” to get us to enable destructive, sinful or even dangerous behaviour.
I really don’t know where in the Bible they saw that, because I am pretty certain that God does not expect us to endanger ourselves, our families and children in order to “love everyone”.
If a deranged person chooses to violently attack the Pope during a public outing and his bodyguards step in to protect him and restrain the criminal, would they accuse us of being unloving and judgemental because we don’t simply sit back and allow ourselves to be attacked and even killed??
If a young girl is set upon by a group of men who have the intention of raping her and she fights back, defends herself, locks herself in her car or runs away, is she being unloving and judgemental because she is not being passive and welcoming danger with open arms and a smile?
Well, those modernist liberals seem to think so.
Deliberately putting yourself, your family or your community in danger and harm’s way is tempting the Lord thy God and a sin.
If you think about it, “open borders” is really a satanic ideology.
In Hell, everyone is welcome with open arms and anyone can get it.
Is it any wonder then that Satan and his earthly minions push so hard for things like “open borders”
Be aware that Satan does know the Bible and will misquote it to lead you into sin and to destroy you.
He used this same tactic on Jesus, God Himself made flesh!
What makes you think that he wouldn’t use his own earthly minions to do the same to you?!
Here is the CCC on the matter:
“Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants’ duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws, and to assist in carrying civic burdens ” – CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 2241
What does the Bible have to say on this topic?
In both the Old and New Testaments, we are admonished to help those in need, to be kind to strangers and charitable to foreigners, but never at the expense of our own safety, peace and security….yes even our own financial security.
Wealthy countries pumping out foreign aid and all of their resources into poorer countries to the point that they too become poor and go bankrupt is a form of foolishness and it compromises the nation’s financial security.
“and He [God] made from one, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation.” – ACTS 17 : 26
Also, migrants should assimilate and integrate into their host country.
St Thomas Aquinas taught that total integration of immigrants into the life, language, customs, and culture was necessary for full citizenship, saying:
“…was that if foreigners were allowed to meddle with the affairs of a nation as soon as they settled down in its midst, many dangers might occur, since the foreigners not yet having the common good firmly at heart might attempt something hurtful to the people.”
“When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace;  but when one stronger than he assails him and overcomes him, he takes away his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoil.” – LUKE 11 : 21-22
Jesus here tells us that not only is it okay to guard our “palaces” but that we can use self-defense and protective measures, when necessary.
Migrants who enter a country through the legal and proper channels, and for the right reasons should, of course, be welcomed charitably.
People who enter a country through illegal methods and means are committing a crime and are trespassers.
Boundaries, discernment, prayer, and knowledge of Scripture will do much to keep you safe from the wicked wiles and manipulations of the devil and his subjects.
Heaven has borders, boundaries and a gate.
It is thus okay to live our lives in accordance with the example and template set for us by God, by having not just physical and interpersonal boundaries, but also closed borders around our geographical spaces.
It is right, legitimate, necessary, just and proper to have controlled immigration and controlled border access, and to remove criminals or illegals where necessary.
Our Lady, seat of wisdom and model of femininity, pray for us!
