Evangelist Franklin Graham expressed his outrage on June 12 about families being “ripped apart” at the US-Mexico border, a policy put into place by the Trump administration.
Graham blamed other nameless politicians “for the last 20, 30 years” for Trump’s policy, but did not blame Trump, during an interview on CBN News:
First of all, I think it’s disgraceful. It’s terrible to see families ripped apart and I don’t support that one bit. And I blame the politicians for the last 20, 30 years that have allowed this to escalate to the point where it is today.
We are a country of laws; laws need to be obeyed, no question about that. But the situation that we have today is a result of our lawmakers in Washington over generations ignoring this and I’m hopeful that soon something could be done to fix it.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended separating parents from children on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on June 5.
