LTD Podcast E60: Former President George W Bush, Boarder Control with Compassion
In this interview with Hoda Kotb of TODAY, former President George W. Bush talks about immigration.
“The beauty of immigration for our country’s future has been over clouded by harsh rhetoric and I wanted to tell the stories of courage, compassion, hard work, entrepreneurship, patriotism.”
He mainly paints veterans and immigrants because he has a kinship with veterans and got great empathy with immigrants. For a man like George W. Bush, his heart for the immigrants gives us a glimpse of the heart of God for his people. Bush sees the pain and suffering of the immigrants. He uses his influence through his paintings to send out a powerful message which we all need to listen to.
In this episode:
- Why he paints Veterans and immigrants
- Awaiting the Derrick Chauvin verdict, what he thinks will be the impact on the racial reckoning in this country.
- “This system (immigration) really needs to be reformed and fixed”
- The purpose of the book
- “it’s not beautiful when we condemn, call people names and scare people about immigration”
- “I think if the emphasis is integrity, and decency, and trying to work to get problem solved, I think the person has shot (in the election)”
- “Pro immigration in the right way to put it, I think border enforcement with a compassionate touch.”
- His thoughts on the Jan 6 Capitol riot
- Some of the stories behind the faces in his paintings
