GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Pastor Jentezen Franklin issues the following statement in support of President Trump’s offer to extend protection for Dreamers in exchange for Democratic support for building the southern wall:
“Along with other leaders of the faith community, I had the privilege one week ago to sit down for over an hour with President Trump and Vice President Pence. Our battle cry to both Republicans and Democrats has been the same: ‘Build the wall and give us DACA.’
“Today, President Trump has gone way beyond halfway in agreeing to extend deportation protections to Dreamers for three years. He also placed in his proposal many ideas originally proposed by Democrats, showing that he is listening. The president just wants common sense protection on the southern border that includes a barrier and humanitarian support, something everybody said they wanted just a few years ago. It’s time to stop the political posturing and support the president’s proposal for common sense protection and humanitarian aid.”
