R. J. Rushdoony on Illegal Immigration as Comparable to Breaking and Entering

According to R. J. Rushdoony, illegal immigration warrants deportation. While there may be exceptions — e.g., backed by Christ's authority to disciple all nations (Matt. 28:18-20), it seems that Christian missionaries, if necessary, can illegally enter nations that prohibit sharing the Gospel — Rushdoony's point is well taken:
Well, first of all they [illegal immigrants] have broken the law. And justice to everyone requires that the law be upheld. So if they are illegal aliens they should be deported. Now that’s justice because it’s comparable to breaking and entering into a man’s house.
Rushdoony also says: 
If there should be a change in the immigration laws there are ways of making change but there’s also a failure in our current practice of reciprocity. For example, we allow entrance to peoples who will not allow anyone from our country to migrate there or to own property. That is hardly justice.

Remember the Time an Islamic Invasion was Crushed in 4 Hours? (by Geoffrey Botkin)

Yes, it was a long time ago.  444 years to the day.  A jihadist invasion of Europe was stopped in its tracks in a head-on contest of wills.  The battle lasted a mere four hours.  The weaponry of battle was primitive, but the Islamists were totally defeated, and retreated into obscurity.  You would think that Europe would remember the day they were saved from an Islamic act of war.  But to do this requires the discernment to tell the difference between peace and war, and between historical revisionism and history.
