Franklin Graham X

Donald Trump took a trip to the US-Mexico border to see the disaster unfolding under President Biden’s policies.

Reverend Franklin Graham was also at the border at the same time, and the two met in a touching moment of prayer.

Graham and Trump Meet at the Border

From Fox News, “Rev. Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association urged prayers for the border, Mexico, and for all the people who live in the area during a visit to Eagle Pass, Texas.”

“I’m on the border of Mexico, and of course this is the center of a lot of attention for our country. Millions of people have crossed this border into our country,” said Graham on Wednesday, Feb. 28, in comments at the border that were shared with Fox News Digital,” the report noted. “Graham was speaking at Shelby Park, which is located in Eagle Pass, directly across from Mexico.”

The story continued:

Acknowledging that “people from all over the world” travel to Shelby Park for new opportunities, Graham also said that “a lot of politicians are coming here to Eagle Pass” for political purposes. 

Graham, however, wanted to set politics aside during this visit and preach the Gospel to those in need of its message. 

With the city’s transformation into a political hot topic, Graham expressed empathy for those simply trying to live their lives. 

“People down here are discouraged,” he said during his trip. “I’m talking about the local people, the Texans that live here. It’s tough — the border patrols are having a tough time, the state of Texas law enforcement is having a tough time. The people that live here are overwhelmed.” 

Americans have seen how a relatively small amount of illegal aliens can overwhelm even massive sanctuary cities like New York and Chicago.

Now imagine places like tiny Eagle Pass, with a population of just 28,000.

Over 7 million illegal aliens have crossed the border just since Biden became President.

Power of Prayer

Both Trump and President Joe Biden visited the U.S. southern border this week, both being their respective parties’ likeliest presidential nominees.

Trump is currently ahead of Biden in the polls.

But Rev. Graham’s border visit was seemingly about something more than polling and politics.

It is not for us to judge. May God bless them all.
