Jesus was not a Refugee!

The latest liberal meme out there is that Jesus was a Refugee. The message is that if Trump does his executive order on stopping immigration from Muslim countries, we might be turning away someone like Jesus and that would be mean.
But Jesus was not a refugee. Refugees flee from danger and distress. Jesus did not flee Heaven to come to Earth. He is nothing like a refugee. He came here deliberately to rescue the refugees of Earth. 

Jesus stands at the gates of Heaven and will choose which of us may enter in. The nice thing is that He knows who really wants to be there and who will tear it down if allowed in the gates. Jesus does flawless extreme vetting. It's harder for us humans because we cannot read the human heart. All we can do is background checks.

Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, ‘Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.’ Matthew 2:13

"Then He will also say to those on the left hand,
'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
'for I was hungry and you gave Me no food;
I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;
'I was a stranger and you did not take Me in,
naked and you did not clothe Me,
sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'
(Matthew 25:41-43)
