This Is How Trump Administration Faith Counselors Are Ministering to Trafficked Immigrant Children

What a beautiful way to serve children who have, in many ways, become faceless despite being the center of a mass media hysteria for weeks.

While left-wing politicians and celebrities alike have been heading down to the border for impassioned photo ops and dramatic speeches outside immigration detainment facilities, these evangelical pastors are actually showing up to serve the children housed within.

Imagine that!

Instead of turning illegal immigrant children smuggled across an incredibly dangerous border into political props, these faith leaders are simply trying to love on and reach out to the children, the innocent victims of harmful open border policies that Trump is working hard to put to an end.

The Christian Post reports:

Prestonwood Pastor Jack Graham was joined by Bishop Harry Jackson, Pastor Jentezen Franklin, Pastor Paula White and evangelical author Johnnie Moore in spending the day with the children at Youth for Tomorrow’s 215-acre residential campus.

Youth for Tomorrow is one of over 113 foster facilities nationwide that have partnered with the federal government to take care of undocumented immigrant children while they’re processed and connected with family members in the United States or placed in foster care.

“You see the smiles on the kids’ faces and already their lives are turning around, it is clear,” Graham, whose church has been involved in trying to serve migrant children in Texas and other states, told The Christian Post in an interview on Friday.

The massive elephant in the room when it comes to the children-ripped-from-their-parents-arms narrative is that, when children are separated from the adults accompanying them across the border, it is often to give authorities time to determine whether or not the adult and the child are actually related.

A thriving human trafficking trade relies on our Southern border region as one of its main arteries, and the left turns a blind eye to the much more severe abuse of human rights that occurs in this unthinkably evil slave trade.

This is the reality that facilities like Youth for Tomorrow are rescuing children from:

In speaking with the staff at the campus, Graham said that around 90 percent of the immigrant children there were trafficked into the country in some way.

“There are a lot of sad stories about how they’re here and why they’re here, the violence in which they came and their families,” Graham, a former Southern Baptist Convention president, said. “The coyotes who run for the drug cartels are very involved in this. That is the story that needs to be told.”

“Most of these children were sent here either by parents or family or they came as a result of the trafficking movement that is coming out of these countries,” he added. “It is a very bad situation. It is the trafficking that we need to stop.”

Graham asserted, though, that it’s still the call of the Church to help take care of these children even if they arrived in the country illegally.

What a beautiful way to serve children who have, in many ways, become faceless despite being the center of a mass media hysteria for weeks.

Let’s keep these children in their prayers as well as those taking time to serve them!

Pence v. Trump 2024? Former Veep Leaves the Door Open

WHOA!

Published

on

There has been an incredible amount of speculation as to whether or not Donald Trump will be again running for President in 2024, and there are a number of factors still at play that could create seismic shifts in the race to come.

For instance, if Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence were to decide to run against him in 2024’s primary…

Mike Pence is not ruling out the possibility of going head-to-head with his old boss Donald Trump in a 2024 Republican presidential primary, a new report suggested on Monday.

‘We’ll go where we’re called,’ Pence told the New York Times when asked about the possible head-to-head.

‘That’s the way Karen and I have always approached these things.’

Trump was not thrilled with the idea.

Meanwhile Trump, despite not formally declaring a 2024 bid yet, has eyes on the competition – including Pence.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, his spokesman slammed his old deputy as ‘desperate’ and mocked him for trying to ‘chase’ his ‘lost relevance’ amid the former running mates’ latest divide over backing separate candidates in the Peach State’s gubernatorial election.

Former President Trump is said to be waiting until after the 2022 midterms to make an official announcement regarding 2024, but there have been plenty of hints regarding his potential campaign – the latest of which came from former First Lady Melania Trump.

Verdict Reached in First Russian War Crimes Trial

This is just the first of many, certainly.

Published

on

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been a brutal one, and increasingly so as the Kremlin’s soldiers find themselves in more and more trouble of their own making.

As the war grows ever more impossible for Russia to win, the troops sent into Ukraine have been committing a series of worsening atrocities.  It’s terrorism at the least, (and very likely a full-fledge genocide), and it belies just how poorly things are going for Russia.

Now, in the first war crimes trial of the conflict, a verdict has been reached.

In the first of what could be a multitude of war crimes trials held by Ukraine, Russian Sgt. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, was sentenced for the killing of a 62-year-old man who was shot in the head in a village in the northeastern Sumy region in the opening days of the war.

Shishimarin, a member of a tank unit, had claimed he was following orders, and he apologized to the man’s widow in court.

His Ukraine-appointed defense attorney, Victor Ovsyanikov, argued his client had been unprepared for the “violent military confrontation” and mass casualties that Russian troops encountered when they invaded. He said he would appeal.

There was no doubt about the court’s legitimacy, either.

Ukrainian civil liberties advocate Volodymyr Yavorskyy said it was “an extremely harsh sentence for one murder during the war.” But Aarif Abraham, a British-based human rights lawyer, said the trial was conducted “with what appears to be full and fair due process,” including access to an attorney.

Given the sheer amount of heinous deeds the world has witnessed in Ukraine, there is no doubt that more war crimes trials will be coming.
