ABSTRACT
The author talks about the general aversion of people against the word, amnesty, which people claim to be against the rule of law. He cites as an example the uproar over the executive order issued by U.S. President Barack Obama declaring the integration of millions of illegal immigrants into American life. The author admits that issues on amnesty should be looked into carefully by all concerned but reminds that the basic law of mercy should not be forgotten by Christians.
