But on Thursday, Roy Beck, founder and president of the anti-illegal immigration group NumbersUSA, said that he considers CCIR's proposals an example of "Christian utopianism."

"They seem to be saying that immigration laws are unchristian," Beck told Cybercast News Service. "It's unchristian to draw the line, to set limits, to say that some people can come in and some can't. We should have a world without borders."

"There's no question that the gospel is pretty radical, but that's just not the way the world works," he said. "Whenever we've had peaks of high immigration, the most vulnerable in our society have been the ones to suffer."
