1:8 Now there arose up a new president over the United States, which knew not hardship.
1:9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of undocumented immigrants are more and mightier than we:
1:10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it
come to pass, that, when there falleth out any economic hardship, they
rise up, and compete against us, and so get them up out of the land.
1:11 Therefore he did set over them law enforcement to afflict them with their burdens. Yet they built for the nation, and educated themselves and delivered many public services.
1:12 But the more the law afflicted them, the more they multiplied and
grew. And the President and his followers were grieved because of the
children of immigrants.
1:13 And the United States made the children of undocumented immigrants to serve with rigour:
1:14 And the law made their lives bitter with hard regulation, in
education, and in housing, and in all manner of service in the field:
all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.
1:15 And the president spake to the administrators of cities, who were
called the mayors, and the police chiefs and the school superintendents,
1:16 And he said, When ye do the duties of your office to the
children of undocumented immigrants, and see them in your cities; if
they be undocumented themselves you shall turn them over to me, that I
may rid them from the land.
1:17 But the administrators feared God,
and did not as the president commanded them, but spared the children of
1:21 And it came to pass, because
the administrators feared God, that God made for them great cities, rich
in culture and blessed by the children of undocumented immigrants.
1:22 And so the president and the state legislatures bound all the
cities, saying every undocumented immigrant that interacts with the city
you shall turn them over to me, that I may rid them from the land.
