Logic and Immigration

Public service announcement.  The following argument is invalid:

1. The Bible says that immigrants in a country are to be treated with human dignity.
2. Therefore the U.S. has an obligation to take in all of the world's refugees, have open borders, and Trump is a Nazi.


  1. Bringing in questions of validity only spoils the fun. If people have stridently declared Trump to be a disgusting Nazi, then he will have to act like a disgusting Nazi from henceforth. The alternative is that these people were suspect, hasty, or overheated in their judgement. And nobody wants to admit to that, do they?
