Welcoming the stranger: just how welcome?

I came across this article Welcoming the stranger

And I immediately thought of the comments Heather and I passed backwards and forwards on refugees/aliens/illegal immigrants in the Fundamentalisms thread.

Shane Claiborne’s position is pretty close to mine, which is not surprising given that he references Matthew 25 (“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me”): for me, that pretty much encapsulates everything we need to understand about the life of faith.  How will history judge us when it comes to how we welcome those who are strangers in our midst?
