Immigration Reform and Christians

Immigration Reform Do you find it odd that many US-style conservative evangelical Christians are opposed to comprehensive immigration reform?

Here are the thoughts of one Christian:

"Christian heritage runs through Judaism. We are an immigrant people. Even our religion began somewhere else. "Our spiritual ancestors, Abraham and Sarah, were told by God to pick up what they had and start traveling. Moses, Miriam, and Aaron led a nation out of Egypt, into the desert and ultimately to new lands. Even Jesus spent part of his childhood as a foreigner in a foreign land. "As Exodus says, we know how it feels to be foreigners in a foreign land. "At best, turning away immigrants makes us hypocrites; at worst, it makes us betrayers of our ancestors and our God."
