The Trump administration has pointed to the Bible in justifying its "zero-tolerance immigration policy," which includes the separation of immigrant children from their parents.
According to one Catholic theology professor, though, scripture has much more to say on the topic of immigration.
On June 14, Attorney General Jeff Sessions referred to Romans 13 in a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
"I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes," said Sessions.
