A Texas-based megachurch pastor said that Ivanka Trump donated $50,000 to his church last week in order to succor children who have been separated from their parents while the illegal migrant campaign was run in the United States. The Dallas Morning News reported that on Tuesday a press release was cited featuring the benevolence of Ivanka.
Pastor Jack Graham said that he was submerged into deep thoughts on the welfare of the separated children when the U.S President’s daughter approached him to aid in the border crisis.
Graham wrote a tweet that reads “We @Prestonwood are currently working to provide solutions to care for children during this terrible immigration crisis,”
“Our espanol ministry let by Gilberto Corredera is stepping up to the challenge to express the love of Jesus. We are broken-hearted and determined to act.” – He added.
However, Ivanka Trump has not yet commented on the donation. While a press release quoted Ivanka’s donation as an affirmation that “the beauty of America and the people in our church is that we don’t have to wait for our politicians to sort out their disagreements in order to do what is right.”
The donation came after a few days prior to the U.S president agreed upon an executive order that backpedaled the “zero-tolerance” policy. After an enactment issued in April, around 2,300 children have been separated from their families.
While an ongoing church service Graham thanked Ivanka for her contribution towards the noble cause. Moreover, she had accessed the church leaders in order to talk about the crisis at the border.
The church officials have informed that the chapel has raised $20,000 from 20 individual donors.
