According to Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Obama is going to encode his will for border disintegrity in a few weeks, using an executive order.
It seems an unwise move, but his nature seems to be aligned to sacrificing other people to his will, regardless of the cost.
It reminds me of the pharaoh of Egypt.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants…”
A wise scholar known as Ramban taught that the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that Pharaoh could freely choose to let Israel go or to retain them as slaves. Had the Lord not hardened Pharaoh’s heart, the plagues of trouble laid down on Egypt might have compelled Pharaoh to let the Israelites to go: not a freely chosen decision. And in the end, Pharaoh’s heart was so hard that he did send his chariots and charioteers after the Israelites.
Back to 2014 and the USA/Mexico border…
It was Pharaoh’s will to keep a foreign people, the Israelites, inside the Egyptian border as slaves, while Mr. Obama wants to sucker people from other lands through our border, into the USA, not as slaves per se but as easy-to-exploit workers.
Unwise for Pharaoh, unwise for Mr. Obama.
