It is coming time for Christians to harbor innocents being persecuted by the state, at risk of their own liberty.
If there is an economist reading this I challenge you to provide economic justification for anti-immigrant laws. As a graduate student in economics, as far as I know, there are none.

I hereby declare that I will willingly provide refuge to an illegal immigrant who has not violated the rights of other individuals. You may come and live with me. I will protect you from the INS. Even if I have to go to jail for it.
Other courageous Christians, join me in this declaration!
