Strange Political Bedfellows Or Religious Brotherhood?

According to Open Doors, World Watch List, Iraq is the seventh most difficult nation in which to live as a Christian.

Before the Iraq war began in 2003, there were 1.4 million Christians in Iraq; the number has now fallen below 250,000.

It seems clear the Evangelical leaders who oppose the Trump Administration's efforts to deport Chaldean Christians back to Iraq understand the peril to their religious brethren.

No Shame: A Deportation Policy For Those Who Voluntarily Signed Up To Protect The Country

I'm not the biggest fan of military service.  After all, I'd prefer a world at peace.
 
But I understand reality.  Part of that reality is that many innocent, good young men and women enter the armed service as a sense of loyalty to the country.  
 
So when the government promises immigrants a path to citizenship if they sign up for the military and then change course on them after they have already joined, xenophobic politics have went too far.
 
A promise, after all, is a promise, right?

Adelanto ICE Locks Out Clergy and Lawyers From Detention Center 

Anyone who has ever visited the Adelanto Detention Facility knows the frustration of working - or trying to work - with ICE personnel.
 
Not all are uncooperative.  But many, indeed most, ICE officers stationed there are generally unfriendly.
 
And in the age of Trump, such actions are not surprising.  Coast to coast, those who believe immigrants, per se, are criminals, have become very, very hard to work with.
