Pro-Trump Pastor Jack Graham Gets $50K Donation From Ivanka Trump, Plans To Proselytize Imprisoned Immigrant Children?
Pastor Jack Graham’s Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, recently received a $50,000 donation from Ivanka Trump, which Graham plans to use on immigrant children who are imprisoned in Texas facilities by the Trump administration.
Graham told The Christian Post that he has been told by the federal government that the kids’ basic needs are being met.
Graham said that Prestonwood plans to fund Vacation Bible School-type activities for the imprisoned children (which could include proselytizing the captive audience).
Graham also said that he and other evangelical leaders — from President Donald Trump’s right wing faith advisory initiative — are planning to visit the detention centers, which could give the president some much-needed positive PR.
Graham was careful not to blame the president for the human crisis that he created with his “zero tolerance” policy.
Graham also claimed the kids — who are crying for their parents — need strangers (like him) to “brighten their day”:
What the kids really need most is someone to brighten their day. They need someone to give them hope.
Our plan is to create an event for the children that will encourage them and make them smile.
Graham said his church was going to provide financial help for the imprisoned families, but it’s not clear how money would assist them while they are jailed by the Trump administration:
Of course, we will also focus on how we can provide financial aid to families to assist them in their situation.
Graham dropped more dog whistle words for prosletyzing the immigrants by saying his church will be “serving and making a difference in people’s lives”:
It’s going to be a while before immigration is solved. But that doesn’t stop us from going and being present and serving and making a difference in people’s lives.
