Ivanka Trump Gives Pastor $50,000 for “Immigration Ministry” Targeting Kids

Jun 26, 2018

By Hemant Mehta

Last week, Pastor Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas tweeted about how his congregation was “determined to act” in the wake of migrant families being separated and locked up.

Even though that cruelty was the result of Donald Trump‘s vindictiveness, his daughter Ivanka Trump got in contact with Graham and sent his church a gift of $50,000 to help the kids.

But not actually help. This is, after all, someone named Trump.

Prestonwood announced yesterday that the money would go towards an “immigration ministry.”

“HHS officials have told us that the basic needs of the children are being taken care of,” Graham said. “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. Of course, we will also focus on how we can provide financial aid to families to assist them in their situation.”

Although the physical needs and education are being provided to the immigrant children, Prestonwood is seeking to provide things such as money, volunteers and Vacation Bible School-type activities.

So instead of using his power and privilege as a conservative Christian leader to condemn the Trump administration for its cruel policies, he’s going to use the $50,000 to give effectively orphaned kids “Vacation Bible School-type activities,” which, let’s face it, is just code for Jesus.

  • Could this be a diversionary gesture in response to a recent action by talk show comedian Jimmy Fallon, who pointedly made a donation in Trump’s name to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, which helps immigrant families, after Trump attacked him with a typically stupid and mendacious Twitter rant concerning comments made about a previous appearance by him on the show, for which he claimed ‘tremendous ratings’ (Trump’s number one obsession) that Fallon totally refuted? The Trump clan really are that petty, after all…….

    Thousands across U.S. join ‘Keep Families Together’ march to protest family separation
    “I have literally never seen Americans show up for immigrants like this,” said Jess Morales Rocketto, who works for the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

    More than 600 marches occurred throughout the country, from liberal, immigrant-friendly cities like New York and Los Angeles to more conservative regions like Appalachia and Wyoming.
    American expats even gathered across from the U.S. consulate in Munich.

  • @OP – Ivanka Trump Gives Pastor $50,000 for “Immigration Ministry” Targeting Kids

    and crowd-funding gives almost £18,000 for the “Trump Baby” protest against Trump’s policies during Trump’s UK visit!

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-44732754

    Campaigners raised almost £18,000 for the helium-filled six-metre high figure, which they said reflects Mr Trump’s character as an “angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands”.

    “So when he visits the UK on Friday, we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him.

    A statement on behalf of the London mayor said he “supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms”.

    More than 10,000 people signed a petition calling for the inflatable to be given permission to fly, activists said.

    He said the initial crowdfunding target was just £1,000, but this was reached within 24 hours.

    The extra cash will now be used to send the balloon on a “world tour” and “haunt” Mr Trump wherever he goes, he added.

    However, even with a ruling requiring this from a judge, the Trump (so-called) administration, is too callously impetuously incompetent, to keep proper records, track the whereabouts of detainees, meet the deadline, or carry out this task to rectify the problems THEY have created!

    Migrant families: 463 parents ‘left US without children’

    Administration lawyers told a federal court more than 450 parents had gone, with the government unable to say if they had been deported.

    The Trump administration recently halted its policy of separating migrant families at the border with Mexico.

    A court ordered that it must now reunite children with their parents.

    Federal court judge Dana Sabraw has ruled that all 2,300 detained minors be brought back to their families by 26 July.

    The news comes amid reports that US immigration authorities are telling migrant parents to sign voluntary deportation forms in order to see their children.

    Hundreds of children however remain separated.
