Kenyan Security Officer: Trump is God’s Chosen

For years, Kenya, historically one of the strongest economic centers in Africa, has battled the rise of terror groups, such as ISIS and Al-Shabab, the difficulty of securing their northern border with Somalia, as well as meeting the needs of high volumes of displaced people groups throughout the country. Having spent collectively more than several months in Kenya over the past decade, I’ve had the opportunity to witness firsthand many of the challenges facing Kenya through my work with The Oasis Network For Churches.

This week, the conservative news outlet, Faithwire, released a shocking video from one of my recent trips to Kenya in which I interview a high ranking Kenyan national security officer regarding border safety under the Trump administration.  The story, which can be found HERE, picked up massive national reach after being tweeted by Tomi Lahren, a leading conservative commentator and Trump supporter.

Actually in Kenya we say that, ‘Trump is God’s chosen.’ Because by him being there so many things to do with terrorism and the spirit behind the Islam has been restricted.     -Officer Harrison Gnota

The original interview, which was recorded as part of filming of Miles Away, a new reality documentary that follows my work with The Oasis Network can be found here:

The Truth About Illegal Immigration

Immigration

I’ve been invested in the people of Latin American for the last 17 years, specifically Mexico. I have ministered to thousands of people throughout their wonderful country and along both sides of the border. Additionally, I have spent considerable time with major Mexican business leaders over the years, as well as major Mexican politicians, several of which I consider dear friends. I’ve also assisted literally dozens of people from nations all around the world over the years enter our nation legally for short term trips, long term trips, to gain political asylum, and to gain green cards and citizenship in our fine nation.

During this time and through these experiences, I have undoubtably seen how broken our current immigration system is, how slanted it is against Christians, and how it favors the wealthy, the Islamic and non-Christian faiths, and those with political connections. It is in major need of revision, but despite all of this, illegal immigration is not the solution nor should it be embraced, overlooked, accepted, or encouraged.

Illegal immigration hurts both Mexico (and the many other nations involved), as well as the United States equally. It strips other countries of desperately needed human capital and talent, promotes illegal trafficking rings (often the same groups responsible for sex and drug trafficking), steals jobs from American workers, and helps perpetuate cartel controlled communities, especially along border cities. Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and President Trump have all addressed these same issues I’ve mentioned. In fact, until this past election, virtually no one (republic or democrat) in Washington questioned this fact, nor cared to state it any differently, but now this has changed.

The current push to normalize and desensitize the American people regarding illegal immigration has nothing to do with immigration. It is merely one of many tactics designed to undermine the current administration. Sadly latinos and other immigrants are being used as pawns by liberal masterminds exactly the same way that Lyndon B. Johnson did this to the black community in the 1960’s in order to gain power.

I’m sure that many will disagree and some will lash out, but I only say this because I’m committed (and will continue to be committed) to a thriving Mexico and a safe and prosperous United States.

The solution is immigration reform, an improved vetting process, temporary bans from problematic nations, increased border security, extended periods of decreased immigration to allow for assimilation, and invoking strict, yet fair, penalties and consequences on those who have entered our country illegally.

I believe that anyone who truly cares about this country and the immigrant, especially those who enter the country legally, should take no other view.
