Something for Anti-Illegal Immigrant Christians

Leviticus 19:33-34 (NIV) - "When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the LORD your God."

If it's good enough to vilify homosexuality, it should also be good enough to embrace illegal immigrants as something much more than a despicable criminal. Is it too much to ask anti-illegal immigrant Biblical literalists to be unwavering and unquestioning adherents to the Holy Bible, even when it inconveniently doesn't suit their own prejudices?
