As the Trump administration faces condemnation in response to reports of inhumane conditions for migrant children held at overcrowded border detention centers, conservative evangelical leader James Dobson said the media has not been “truthful” in its reporting on the issue.
Dobson, a psychologist who founded Family Talk Radio and Focus on the Family, sent his July newsletter to thousands of friends and supporters to share his firsthand account of what he saw at an immigration detention center in McAllen, Texas.
As conservative evangelical leaders have been kept informally engaged in various aspects of the Trump administration, the 83 year-old said he was invited on the trip several weeks ago by the White House as federal agents “are struggling to deal with a massive influx of poor and destitute human beings.”
Dobson, who served on the Trump 2016 campaign’s evangelical advisery board, said he promised US Custom and Border Patrol agents that he would “go home and tell as many people as possible what I had seen ‘up close and personal.’”
