Garrison on MSNBC, American’s don’t want war with Iran

By Jacqueline Isaacs

Bishop Garrison, co-founder and president of the Rainey Center, was on MSNBC earlier this week to discuss recent actions involving Iran and the delay of ICE deportation raids.

As an Army veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Garrison shared his insights about the President apparently calling back a strike on Iran. He reminded viewers that “the vast majority of people don’t want a war with Iran,” but they do want to see “stability and pragmatic aspects” in our foreign policy.

At the same time, the President announced a two-week delay in planned deportation raids by  Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE), and it has been reported that the ICE raid didn’t occur because there is no capacity to hold those persons until deportation.

According to Garrison, the current situation at the US-Mexico border is a humanitarian crisis “with families being ripped apart” and with children being forced to live in “subhuman, substandard conditions.” He adds that taking more individuals into custody will only make this situation worse.
