People Are Not Illegal — Especially Sojourners

FYI: I take great exception to the resentment-politics “illegal immigrant” meme. I even take greater exception when people do not subscribe to resentment-politics but mindlessly repeat resentment memes.

Long story short: PEOPLE ARE NOT ILLEGAL. Say you play an office pool during the World Series. Does that make you an illegal employee?

I’m using an honorable Biblical word henceforth: sojourners. Consider, for example Psalm 39.12. We’re all in the same fragile boat, are we not?
