(Worthy News) - Congress is set to vote on Thursday on what some have called an “unprecedented” right that would allow immigrants easier access to relocate to the United States, according to new legislation offered by a Democratic senator.

The legislation, which is being offered by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) as an amendment to a larger bill governing nuclear safety, would prohibit the U.S. government from barring any individual from entering the country based on their religion.

The bill comes amid a fierce national debate about immigration to America, particularly for individuals coming from Muslim-majority nations. Critics of the Obama administration’s refugee plan, which would permit up to 10,000 Syrians into the country, maintain that there are not enough oversight measures in place to ensure that immigrants are not linked to terrorists or various terror organizations, such as the Islamic State.

  1. This present time is a "crucial" time in the world. To not exacerbate the violence of the migrants, immigrants, those with visas and passports, and the other people who are not with Christ, (even Americans) everyone must not provoke any kind of violence from those who are very capable of doing violence, regardless of who they are or where they are from. People who are not of the Christian faith might murder Christians in order to save their own selves thinking they are doing a good service to humanity. The key would be: DO NOT PROVOKE ANY KIND OF VIOLENCE. When the violent increase and they start surrounding the 'holy' people and the beloved city, we are going to be in Revelation 20.
