Americans are good.

In his July 2019 newsletter to his followers, evangelical leader James Dobson described a visit to the southern border of the United States during what can only be called an immigration crisis of epic proportions. After stating that many of the “illegals” who cross the border are “illiterate and unhealthy” and will overcome our culture, he states, “America has been a wonderfully generous and caring country since its founding. That is our Christian nature. Except that there isn’t a lot of Christ in what’s happening on our southern border, and there isn’t a lot of Christ in our history. What there is a lot of is oppression, injustice, slavery, torture. You get the gist. But according to certain faith leaders?

America is good.
