What if Jesus, Joseph, and Mary fled to the U.S. in 2018 for asylum, instead of Egypt 2,000 years ago...
13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to the United States. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for the U.S..." (Based upon Matthew 2: 13-14).
But when Joseph arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border legally to apply for asylum according to international agreement, Jesus, Joseph and Mary were separated from one another. Though the Holy Family had a valid asylum case, they were shuffled through Border Patrol, not allowed to speak to an attorney, and denied due process. As baby Jesus was placed in a cage, the Patriot Front distributed flyers outside of the immigrant concentration camp which read, "Keep America American! Report any and all illegal aliens. They are not immigrants, they are criminals.

After a hasty hearing before a judge together with 30 other asylum applicants, Joseph and Mary were ordered deported. Jesus was left behind. Screaming for their son Jesus, Mary and Joseph were shackled by ICE and forced on a plane. Upon arrival in Nazareth of Galilee, Joseph and Mary were killed by Herod. Jesus was sent into foster care to live with a white family who were members of a local church that overwhelmingly favored Jeff Sessions' "zero tolerance" policy. #matthew25socal#notwithoutmychild #familiesbelongtogether
