Trump wall to separate people is un-Christian

President Trump's "wall" between Mexico and the United States is equivalent to the old wall between East and West Germany. Both were/are instruments of separation of one people from another. The people on the "other side" of the wall are the "undesirables" who must be kept from contaminating the "good people" on THIS side of the wall. 

This is the same attitude that created the Indian reservations and the prison system in America. Separate the desirables (you and me) from the undesirables (Latinos, Indians, prisoners.)

This attitude is both unnatural and un-Christian. For we are all one humanity under God. All peoples of whatever culture and skin color have the same heart beating in their breasts. All peoples comprise one humanity with the same rights and dreams. Separation by walls or reservations or prison cells is both immoral and ungodly.
