Russell Moore and his partner in immigration policy, George Soros, have teamed up to take on the Trump Administration.
THE MOORE-SOROS PARTNERSHIP
Russell Moore’s partnership with George Soros has been well-documented. Moore, who was called an “open border zealot” by Breitbart, is exposed by National Review editor, Mark Krikorian, as “one of the leaders of the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a Soros front-group pushing Obama’s immigration agenda” (link). Evidence supports this charge, and Soros is most definitely providing the funding and direction to the EIT, and by extension, to Moore himself (link). As well as being independently confirmed by a whole myriad of news sources, one of Moore’s close compatriots on the Evangelical Immigration Table is the socially-progressive Jim Wallis, who has admitted that their funding is derived from George Soros (link); Wallis originally lied about the EIT being funded by Soros (link), but later admitted he had spoken falsely and acknowledged it is funded by Soros (link). Eric Metaxas, who once supported the EIT with Russell Moore, publicly renounced the EIT once he discovered Soros was behind it (link). Moore, on the other hand, still happily serves Soros and his name is still registered as an “influential signatory” (link) and in an article on the EIT website, it invokes the Southern Baptist Convention (and Russell Moore) as champions of their cause (link). Russell Moore speaks at and leads certain of their events (link).
Although Soros funded the EIT as a left-wing political think-tank to support Obama’s immigration policies, with Obama out of office, it has now changed purposes to attack Trump’s immigration policies.
RECENT EIT ATTACKS ON TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION POLICIES
Moore and Soros’ Evangelical Immigration Tabled (EIT) advocated that Congress codify Obama’s DREAMERS policy into law so that Trump couldn’t enforce his immigration policies (link), so that millions of illegal immigrants would essentially be treated as United States citizens.
Evangelical Immigration Table representatives wrote and approved a letter in opposition to the refugee resettlement program (link). Sojourners Magazine, published by EIT leader, Jim Wallis, invoked the Evangelical Immigration Table when attacking Jeff Sessions and saying he needs a “Bible lesson” because he believes in an “enforcement only” approach to immigration law (he also invokes the name of the SBC and Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission in his rebuke to Sessions) (link). The EIT has even published articles expounding Romans 13, advocating civil disobedience (that’s not what Romans 13 teaches, by the way) to immigration law (link).
MOORE AND SOROS LANDING ONE-TWO PUNCHES ON TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION POLICY
Moore sent a condescending letter to Donald Trump (after sending it first to press outlets, which is an odd public-relations strategy), chastising him with various and vague Biblical truisms like “Love thy neighbor.” Seven times he invokes the names of Southern Baptists in his opposition to Trump’s temporary moratorium on immigration from seven terror-saturated nations (link). Moore’s message to Trump was implicit, but clear; Southern Baptists do not support your move on immigration.
Some Southern Baptists might disagree.
Likewise, Soros has been attacking Trump’s immigration policies other than just through Russell Moore and the Evangelical Immigration Table. Soros has been using his funds to bankroll up to a dozen lawsuits against the administration for exercising Trump’s executive authority, through shell companies and organizations that – like Moore’s EIT – he funds (link). The most prominent of these Soros-funded organizations suing the Trump Administration is the Open Society Foundation (link). The Open Society Foundation gave over 35 million dollars to the ACLU, which is responsible for the lawsuit that prompted a federal judge to halt’s Trump executive order.
Make no mistake about it, Soros and Moore are both on the same team, they both know it, and they are both out to accomplish the very same socially-progressive immigration agenda.
