On Asylum Seekers & Family Separation (thread)
There has been a lot of discussion about family separation at the border, & while I’m thankful for those contributions, I have seen almost no one address the prosecution of asylum seekers & separating them from their children. /1
Since AG Sessions’ announcement of the “zero-tolerance” policy for prosecuting those who cross the border illegally it is becoming clear that asylum seekers have been included in the arrests as well. thejusticeconference.com/2018/05/need-k… /2

I’m seeing a lot of mixed thoughts about the #SyriaStrikes. Most of them are incoherent and not very level-headed. Here is my humble attempt at the opposite.
War and bombs are not part of God’s vision for the Kingdom, but we live in the “already, not yet” /1
so there has to be a place for military might to be used appropriately. I believe that a military intervention in #Syria could bring stability back to the country, ending the killing of innocents and allowing refugees to return home to rebuild. /2
