Posted on 09/09/2011 12:45:34 PM PDT by moonshinner_09
We have an update on the illegal immigration law and perspective from one of the plaintiffs.
In April of 2009, Ellin Jimmerson's 16 year old daughter and her boyfriend were killed in a car crash. Illegal immigrant, Felix Ortega, smashed into them while driving drunk. He pled guilty to reckless murder.
Now Jimmerson is fighting to stop Alabama's illegal immigration law, HB 56, from going into effect.
HB 56 makes it a crime to transport someone who is undocumented and to encourage them to stay in the state of Alabama and so as a minister these are just things that I can't agree to do, said Ellin Jimmerson.
Last month there was a federal hearing where three lawsuits against the state were compiled seeking an injunction to block the law from taking effect. Federal Judge Blackburn issued a preliminary injunction until September 29. A ruling is expected by September 29th. However, Blackburn's latest court order severs the three cases. She will rule on each one separately. In the court order Judge Blackburn wrote, The court is now of the opinion that, for case management purposes and ease of appellate review, the cases should be severed.
What she's doing now is ruling on the implementation start date so the constitutionality question comes later and I hope that the entire law is revoke or repealed, said Jimmerson.
While the judge continues to review her case, Jimmerson continues her mission providing perspective in a documentary named Gospel without Borders. It is produced by EthicsDaily.com.
I think the end result is to encourage people to be more critical in their thinking and do actively incorporate the teachings of the bible into their decision making, said Jimmerson.

What a load! Jesus doesn't believe that it is ok that a sovereign nation picks and chooses who it lets in? That is a bit of a stretch. Also, what about all the pagan types down there? Wouldn't Jesus want us to be more careful of that stuff? Jesus bled but it doesn't mean he was a bleedy heart.
“Gospel without common sense” is more like it.
Do our country’s laws mean NOTHING to her? Maybe Jesus’ instruction to “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” was left out of her Bible.
So, allowing a foreign race to overrun your country, steal you blind, murder, rob and rape your citizens, drain your nation’s treasury, ignore your law, and in summary, destroy your country is Biblical? What a complete ass of a human.
Her mind is soft as a grape. Her religious phony baloney act. We have a nation of capitulators
