Jeff Sessions Defends Using the Bible to Justify Controversial Immigration Policy

This week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was interviewed by CBN News, and defended his use of Romans 13 to justify the White House’s controversial immigration policy. After Christian leaders began speaking out about children being separated from their parents because of the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, Sessions told reporters: “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order. Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.”

President Trump has since signed an executive order saying children and parents could be detained together.

Sessions is defending his use of the Scripture. He told CBN News: “I directed it not to say that religion requires these laws on immigration. I just simply said to my Christian friends, ‘You know, the United States has laws and I believe that Paul was clear in Romans that we should try to follow the laws of government of which we are a part.’”
