Glenn: This is probably the hardest thing I have ever asked of you

Glenn and TheBlaze have been covering the growing crisis at the southern border for a number of weeks now. With the situation further deteriorating, Glenn came before his audience on Monday morning with an interesting ask. In fact, Glenn described what he was about to say as “the hardest thing” he has ever asked for. But as he shared troubling new information about the humanitarian crisis at the border, Glenn asked his listeners to consider donating to Mercury One.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

I’m not going to tell you who is giving me this information because things down at the border are extraordinarily difficult and not what you are being told it is. The Administration – and I believe this also includes the progressives Republicans – are trying to keep the lid on the media right now. And the churches are the ones who are pulling people’s feet out of the fire. Our state reps now have gone and toured the facilities that are happening in Laredo, Brownsville, Van Horn, McAllen, and all across the border. This one particular facility that I want to talk to you about holds 400 people but currently it has 1,200 kids in it. Some of them are toddlers. 1,200. 400 is what the max capacity is.

Let me ask you: How fast would the federal government or the state shut you down if you had anything that said maximum capacity 400, and you had 1,200 people if there? Three times the amount. Is anybody seeing a problem with this? The federal government is breaking their own laws and they are keeping this information from us.

I am told by people who have toured and work at this facility that when they open the doors to go in, the stench is so bad the politicians that were to go in gagged and backed out. One of the churches is planning on converting their entire church, the largest in the area, to become a holding facility because of how bad things are. Things are so desperate right now, hygiene and food are the number one problem. Clothes are further down the list. They need portable showers and Port-A-Johns. They have no way to wash their clothes. They need food and hygiene care right now. Many of them have not eaten in days. FEMA is supposed to be down there. They are not down there.

The more I get into it, the more angry I get. The more I see and the more I hear from both the Republicans and the Democrats, the more disgusted I am with them. And then we’re sitting here in this situation to where we have to ask ourselves: Who are we? What is it we’re going to do?

I have come to a place this weekend that I believe in the Constitution of the United States. I believe in the United States of America. And that is my citizenship. But that is my secondary citizenship. The Constitution of the United States of America was God-inspired and man tried to write. It guarantees some basic freedoms for us, and that’s why it exists. But that is not where those freedoms come from. Our freedoms come from a higher citizenship. And now we have people who are in need. As I sit and I look at what’s happening on the border and then I look at whose border it is, we’ve never seen a humanitarian crisis like this. We never had refugee camps in America that I know of unless we were the progressives that rounded the Japanese up or the Germans or the Italians. We’ve not done that. In America, we pride ourselves on the fact that we’re the good guys, right?

That’s who we are. We pull our wounded enemies off the battlefield and we treat them in our hospitals. We offer medical care to our prisoners – even those who have done the most heinous things, the worst of the worst, we still believe in treating them in humane ways. And it’s because it’s simple. It is really simple to Americans. And this is what makes us different. We believe humanity is a higher standard on the battlefield. We believe humanity is a higher stand than the rule of law. We believe helping people, being charitable, being good, is what makes us. We have a higher calling.

The same thing goes for our borders. Humanity, our humanness, is a higher standard than immigration. To consider the well-being of others is what makes us human. It’s what makes us Americans.

I have to tell you, I am so mad at our politicians right now, I can’t take it. I’m to the point now where I’m beyond mad. I beg them, please, please, for everything that is good and decent, secure our borders and fix our immigration policies. Please, don’t you see the misery that is being caused all over the country? Please. Can you not hear, can you not smell what’s happening on our borders? Please. But I have no faith in Washington anymore.

I still have, thank God, my faith in you. Now we have a choice. We can run down to the borders and secure it ourselves. Let’s get our guns. Let’s go down there and secure it ourselves. But that doesn’t fix the humanitarian crisis. And we have to err on the side of humanity. If we’re going to be Americans, a choice has to be made. And we always make the right choice. We really do. As people, we always do. We would rather extend ourselves and see the life of a child protected than err on the side of being silent or still and harm coming to a child while politicians do what politicians do nothing, debate meaningless words. That’s what makes them politicians. Acting in a compassionate way is what makes us human. It’s what makes us Americans.

I don’t know what’s going to happen on our border. I don’t know what’s going to happen with our politicians. I have a feeling I know. And I want no part of it. These people have to be sent home. They have to be sent home. But I can’t sleep at night knowing that we know what’s going on.

When I got that email, I reached out to Mercury One and asked them, can we send trucks? We just helped with a tornado up in Nebraska. We sent five tractor-trailers within hours. We had five tractor-trailers. This is going to take a lot more than five tractor-trailers. I want to be really clear. I am not for amnesty. I am not for open borders. The policies have to be debated. The laws have to be written. But we can’t allow the suffering to happen on our side of the border and know about it.

If you don’t want to know about it, you better turn off the radio. Well, oops, it’s too late for that. You now know about it. It’s like if we were in the hospital, and there was a sick child and they were an immigrant and they’re sitting there, anybody, it doesn’t matter. We always say, we didn’t need universal health care. We know our system was broken. We got that. But we don’t want it running through the government because it’s going to make it worse. And they said, ‘Well, you can’t let people just die of cancer in the streets.’ Nobody was dying of cancer in the streets. You and I both know that when people would go into the hospital, they would get treatment. You know that, and I know that. Because it’s what Americans do.

Today, I want to appeal to you. I want you to just think about this, please. The two citizenships that we hold. We will destroy our country if we only recognize the citizenship that we have in our country. If the Constitution of the United States of America is our god, then we are lost already. Our God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Our God demands certain things from us. He demands us to see each other. He demands that we help each other. He demands that we help the child. We help the suffering. We are the Good Samaritan.

There are some who are going to say, ‘I’m not going to help the people. They came across the border.’ Well, okay, but they’re here now. They’re on our border. Yes, some of them may be MS-13. That’s a different argument. We can sort out who’s who after we take care of people. That’s for the government to do. I’m not talking about we’re going to send them into our cities.

I’m saying can we please get them Port-a-Potties. Can we get them portable showers? Can we feed them? You want to show the world what it means to be an American? Then let’s do that. Let’s put the well being of others on the highest pedestal. I beg our politicians, please, stop seeing Rs and Ds. Stop seeing votes. Start seeing people. You got to get this one right. You can’t swamp our cities. You can’t swamp our churches. You can’t swamp the American people. We’re the only lifeboat out there. You want to help people? We have to be strong. You have to get this one right because the American people are charitable.

But the cause of charity, even though it’s noble, is not a solution. It’s just a means of closing the gap. You have to close the gap. You have to be strong and say, ‘Stop sending us your 3-year-olds. It’s not right. It’s dangerous for the 3-year-old. Please. Implore to people.’ They are just like you. What parent sends a 3-year-old across the border with a drug smuggler? I’ll tell you what. Somebody who sees what’s on the other side. Somebody who says there’s nothing here. They’d be better off up there. I’ll take the chance. What does that tell you? That tells you that things are so out of control in their country, that things are so lawless in their country, that their children don’t even have a chance. Why in our wildest dreams would we try to help people in other countries by becoming lawless ourselves? The laws matter. It is up to the President, it is up to the Department of Justice, it is up to our Congress to actually stand by those laws and enforce those laws and if you don’t like those laws, then change those laws. But until you do, you have to enforce them and until they do, we have to be charitable.

I don’t know how you’re going to react. I really don’t. This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever asked of you because I know how angry you are. I know what you feel on the border because I feel exactly the same way. But what makes us Americans is empathy. What makes us Americans is charity. When our game is divine, and everything that we do is noble, at least everything we strive for is noble, that’s when we become America.

Could I ask you to donate to MercuryOne.org. I will promise you that every dollar – even if it is only a dollar – will go to help those in need. We will not stop helping those who are hit by a hurricane or hit by a tornado here in our own country. But now for the first time in my lifetime, we have a humanitarian crisis because the politicians have dropped the ball. Let’s not drop the ball ourselves. Let’s continue to be Americans.

    Gleen it’ one of the olny issues i have truly ever disagreed with you on. Im proud to say i totaly agree with this point of view. This is Gods country as Christians its are job to love all who want to come and enjoy it.Have faith that if you do the right thing God will show you the way. The way to solve Illeagle’s is to make them all leagle Give them all a SS# and make them sign up for the draft. fingerprint them and arrest the law breakers. Encourage the hard workers .English should be forced as first launage and our constitution should be taught from day one.This is the way God would have it and its the only way to insure our Idenity as Americans and 1s Christians and keep our committment to all tax payers.Unlike the Iraqies Mexicans truley want and understand freedom.Im telling you this is the only solution.

    I remember reading a story about Bud Abbott of Abbott and Costello fame signing up for an SAG pension during his latter days. One of the questions on the application was an estimate of how much money he made duirng his entertainment career. Abbott wrote down between $40-50 million. The next question asked about his current assets. Abbott wrote, “Not a f’ing dime.”

    That’s my answer.

    What concerns me is that these children are fodder for predators. Obama is big into brain initiatives giving over 100 million dollars to its cause. Any one of these children could be taken and experimented on like the ongoing MKUltra, and who is going to report them missing? Lots of potential human lab rats, lots of young succulent flesh for human and sex traffickers, slave labor. What is go on is inhumane. How many families would love a toddler? Adopt these children out.

    Well, these camps have security, fences, ability to feed many, medical facilities and from what I have read, even rail car and bus access. Just where do you suppose they should be housed? They should NOT be let into the population. Just give your address. I am sure something can be arranged. (edit) These people are illegal aliens.

    this whole thing is a ploy that the American people are oh-so predictably falling for. Let thousands of ‘minors” across the border, they all have horror stories about where they came from, the conditions are just deplorable where they have all these “immigrants” stored…America just HAS TO DO SOMETHING! The churches just HAVE TO DO SOMETHING! We can’t send them back to those awful countries they fled from and we can’t keep them in these camps that are worse than any gulag ever imagined…this is a HUMANITARIAN issue and we can’t let these kids down! And THAT, Mr. & Mrs. America, is how amnesty get’s back-doored for more than 50,000 “children”…and they open the door for the parents (now we’re up to 150,000), and brothers and sisters (figure at minimum another 50,000)…and voila, a quarter million instant amnesties! And that doesn’t even address the 20 million that have already been here…and it just wouldn’t be fair to not amnesty them too. And all of this could have been averted by sending these “children” back across the border to Mexico. I know they aren’t all Mexicans and I don’t care. Mexico assisted them in getting here and they can assist them in getting back to wherever they came from…they did NOT come from here!

    This is the hardest thing you ever asked for, Glenn, because 1) you know they don’t deserve our donations 2) we already “donated” by shipping our jobs to Mexico 3) if we accept the “it’s for the children” rationalization, then any Children’s Army can come here and overcome our population. How about a Children’s Army of refugee Syrian jihadists? Maybe the news should filter back to Central American that it isn’t a picnic to come here illegally, especially if you are a teenage drug gang member. How about I come to your house, Glenn, and ask you to house these children – and teen thugs – on your land?

  • Marilyn Cotton

    The attitude displayed here would be much more understandable if all he were speaking of were adults, and all of those adults were criminals. It actually doesn’t take much to be declared a criminal in Mexico. All you have to do is oppose the drug lords, and if you live, you are a criminal. What he is speaking of are the children. Kids, some no more than three years old, who had no choice over violating the border, who possibly do not even know what the border is all about. Our government is failing on this. Our government is failing. Until our politicians and our government begin to act responsibly, we must.

    I say we budget $50 billion dollars to build a massive wall with guard towers, mine fields, electric fences along our southern border. The way the commies did it to divide East Germany might be perfect model.

    Then hire a bunch of psychotic Oath Keepers armed to teeth to patrol the border with Mexico and give them orders to shoot to kill any and all vermin attempting to invade our country. Especially if they’re young children and women. Now there’s the perfect dream solution to fulfill any and all psychopath’s deepest desires.

    Glen doesn’t get it. “We can sort out who’s who after we take care of people.” Truth is, there will be no “after.” We could starve every American to death to help these people, and there would still be more behind them.

    The more we help, the more will come. There is no end.

    The solution is to close the borders, restore America, and once again show the world how a nation can stand on its own, full of people who stand on their own, building businesses that stand on their own.

    Encouraging dependency is not the answer.

    I am all for getting them out of here. I can’t stand illegals. But at the same time, what kind of people are we if we let them suffer? How about the innocent children. We aren’t talking about sending them cable tv or free phones, we are talking a out basic needs until the government sorts this out! How can we, as Americans, in what is suppose to be the greatest country of all, allow these people to suffer in such an Inhumane way? Should they be sent back, yes! Should the ones that want to come in the future do what it takes legally to be a citizen? Of corse! Do we need stronger border control? Absolutely! But these people are already here, and the way we treat them shows what kind of people…why kind of country…we are. I see no issue in sending basic human needs for them. I think it’s the right thing to do.

    If this is God’s land alone, then why bother to have a border and a U.S. Constitution? Saying some place is in every practical way God’s land and not the land of the U.S. of A. is saying that the United States has no right to exist as a separate nation. If I came to your home, Dryden, with a handgun and wanted your tv and computer because it was “God’s property” and didn’t belong to you, would you agree with that rationalization? With liberals, it’s only “God’s Country” when someone else has to give up sovereignty or property, never when THEY have to give anything up. How about housing this kids at your house, Dryden?

    I am one of the biggest opponents of amnesty. I also want our borders secured. BUT, Glenn makes a very good point here. Since these people are already here and stuck in ‘camps’ along our border, regardless of who is to blame, they need to be treated humanely. As Christians and Americans, we must treat them at least as well as our prisoners. Keep in mind, if you lived in any of those hell holes south of our border, you also would be doing anything possible to get you and your family out of there. I know I would.

    Bev you’ve really have thought this one out haven’t you.

    So lets instead pay more taxes to send the women, children, men back across the border and then spend billions of tax dollars to build a wall big enough and well fortified then hire hundreds of thousand more agents to patrol it. Yea, that will all be free. And won’t cost any tax dollars.

    Yea, right.

While I don’t agree that sending donations to them (I don’t believe they will ever get them – not because of Glenn but the gov.) Glenn is reacting from the heart. We need to stop them from coming here in the first place, but that’s not going to happen. That’s Oboobs commie plan to overload us in every direction.

    I keep seeing “send back them” as a response. first off, these kids are not from mexico, or so we are told… they are Guatemalan. that makes for a difficult situation. we could no more send an illegal japanese national to germany, then a Guatemalan to mexico… we would be violating the law. However, we can pay to ship them all over the country, we sure the heck can get a military ship into texas, to ship them back to guatemala. the others can be held in the detention facilities, til we end up with a boat load, to cost effectively ship back them, to their country of origin. if they refuse to offer the info, then we try them and detain them for their crime.

    But, there was profound question asked last week… why do you suppose they are flooding in now? the policies? we have been weak on the border in all administrations… and most recently, they were self deporting due to our economy… so what is going on? Hey progressives… I have an Idea! lets open the fema reeducation… uh, detention, uh emergency holding facilities…. and fully staff them! yea, then we will have a place all ready to house any other , say, dissidents or otherwise undesirables… all staffed and ready to go …just in case! (why do I feel the mask placed over the camps are about to come off? in baby steps of course… as is the progressive way. Nice and slimy like. brilliant, evil, but brillliant. buckle up gang. this is how they get those hell holes staffed… for the children.

    Yeah, you keep quoting the Bible to make yourself feel superior. The problem is that over the decades Christians have kept turning their cheek, only to get it slapped again and again. We now have a corrupt government that is currently stripping away OUR RIGHTS in favor of the rights of illegals. Illegals, I might add, gather in protest DEMANDING their rights. They have no rights to entitlements, they’re NOT citizens. But…you keep on enabling. It will come back to bite you in the arse like it has the US taxpayer.

  • Tonia McBride

    I think I have a solution. Any child under 13 who isn’t claimed by their parents in the next 30 days is free for immediate adoption. No waiting. No convincing the system you’re worthy. You want a Spanish speaking 6-year-old? How about two? There’s no anchor potential for the family back in Guatemala. No mass human rights violations. One way or another, these kids have been abandoned by their parents and are victims of human trafficking. The solution is to find them forever families and cut off all ties they might have to their birth countries. Also, we should airdrop this information on central America so those people understand that if they send their kids here illegally, they are never going to see them again. Ever.

  • Jennifer Nicholson

    Please clarify your stance. For example, in the Old Testament aliens in Israel often worked as servants or farm workers but were not given citizenship. They were, however, treated humanely. That is how it should be here as well. No citizenship for those who have crossed over illegally, and no government handouts either. Give them the right to work and pay their share of taxes, and let the government keep the people informed so that the charities can do the work of making sure the victims and children are cared for.

    However, I must tell you that most of the Mexican immigrants coming over in this generation do not appreciate our culture. They want to eat, but they don’t want to change their own culture (which plays a large part in causing the problems they are trying to escape from in the first place). They want to create little Mexico areas here within our society, and they don’t want you or I to be anywhere around them. If you live in a border state for 30 years you see that very clearly. I don’t think that is as true of the Central American immigrants, nor is it true of the Mexican families who have been here for more than a generation.

    There also seems to be a difference between Mexican immigrants living in urban areas versus those living in rural areas, which I have noted in the six months I have lived further north in a farming area, and that may actually have to do with how warmly they are treated in the first place. Cities aren’t exactly places of overwhelming warmth and charm. There may be places you can go to find others just like you, but the rest of the people don’t even give you a second glance, let alone a warm smile and a welcome. Small town people do, and therefore it makes it easier for outsiders to integrate. If you imagine yourself trying to get your feet under you in a place where you know no one and don’t speak the language and have no idea how you’re going to be received after coming from an extremely impoverished and dangerous environment, well, where would you feel more a part of the community? Maybe we should consider a gateway program that helps to find legal work (not citizenship, which should be reserved for those who immigrate through legal processes) for these illegal immigrants in rural locations around the country that need the labor, or in the case of these children who may very well end up staying here, foster homes in rural locations around the nation.

    It also seems that it would be in our own nations interests to take a more active role in what is going on in the politics of our neighbor nation to the south, for moral good and for greater good, which includes more than just pacifying governments who want to offload their burdens onto us or sending guns to their cartels to kill off more of their citizens as well as our own. Covertly, if necessary.

    I don’t think we can really comment on what the average Iraqi citizen might feel about freedom without having the same first hand experience as we do with the Mexican immigrants in the border and farming states.

    give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals
    on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

    Matthew 5:46-47 ESV
    For if you love [only] those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

    It is right and just that we should enforce our laws and send these people back to their own countries. It is not right and just that we allow them to starve or become ill (and possibly die) because we withhold basic necessities for life while that is taking place. Many of those who are suffering are children whose biggest fault is that they obeyed their parents.

    That saying is not Biblical.

    We quote the Bible so that you know where we are coming from. It’s not to feel or seem superior. It is our foundation.

    And Rex, when was the last time you saw an 8 yr who was able to work to feed herself. I called in to my local PD a woman and two young girls. Only one of whom turned out to be hers. The other 8 yr old was dumped by the trafficker at the bank of the river.

    FYI — it’s been in the upper 90s here w/high humidity (feels like 102-108) locally. So, unless you advocate just letting them die in the weather, doing something is better than doing nothing.

    The deist thing is a fun liberal revisionist fantasy that keeps getting flown around as fact. It’s also irrelevant. This is not God’s country because of how the founders felt about Him. This is God’s country because, like everything else in existence, He created it. It’s all God’s, all of existence. The great thing is that despite efforts to convince the population to the contrary, the majority of the people who live in this country still believe in, love and serve God, and so therefore as a country, we wish to do His bidding.

    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

    ― Emma Lazarus

    I think many Americans have forgotten how their ancestors ended up here. We need to fix our border situation, but until we can we cannot deny human beings basic NEEDS (not rights). I mean…I think Jesus MIGHT have spoken about that at some point in time. He also said this (if you’re so inclined to assume these people are ‘vermin” and “criminals” and looking for handouts/looking to suckle on the teat of the American taxpayer and you’re SUPER angry about it):

    Matthew 5:43-48

    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    Proverbs 25:21
    21If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; 22For you will heap burning coals on his head, And the LORD will reward you.…

    These are men women and children. They are not animals, they are not vermin, they are human beings. Did they cross the border illegally? Yes. Did they break our laws? Yes. Does that sit well with me? No and it needs to stop. But that does not merit being thrown into disgusting conditions and having to go without food and basic hygiene for days on our watch. These are people like you and I and deserve to be treated as so. Have some compassion for human life and basic needs.
    There is a marine being held up in Mexico right now who accidentally crossed the border but what if he had deliberately crossed the border? Should he be treated as an animal like these people are being treated and go hungry and dirty? I’m going to guess a lot of you would say no, because human life is precious and deserves respect and basic needs met no matter whats been done.

    Some of these comments are truly disturbing and the mindsets I am seeing is a dangerous one to have. Where are your hearts? Yes we need to get the border under control and laws need to be enforced and some changed. Our borders are not secure and who’s fault is that? Certainly not ours right?
    There are people and children who need help right now and can’t leave even if they wanted to. They are being held here. Have compassion for your fellow man, even if they have done wrong. The truly sad part is there are children involved that had no control over being sent here and many of you are turning your backs to them. That is lower than low. We all make mistakes and I am willing to bet we have all broken the law at some point in our life but we all deserve to be treated with respect and have basic human needs/rights met. So what makes you better than they? If that’s the mindset shouldn’t we all deserve the same treatment when a law is broken?

However, these kids are here, in this country. No one is asking anyone to send money outside the country to help fix this. These are kids whose parents have shipped them across to somewhere else with no one to take care of them. The problem is here, in this country, and there is no one else. Or maybe you like the idea of half your country (yes, this one right here that we all live in) being a third world slum?

  • Capt Obvious

  • JWagz

    I guess what I find the most disturbing is everyone’s lack of concern or care for what is pretty much extreme suffering going on right now. Should they have tried to come here? No. Should “we” (as in our country) provide illegals social security numbers and welfare? No. However, “we” have allowed this problem to go on for decades and decades and right now, as we speak, human beings are in deplorable, painful, gut wrenching conditions……if that was YOU, for whatever reason, would you want nobody to care about your suffering? I would want people to give a damn and I’d hope to God for help. Our government is the cause of this problem, not the people who were trying to find a better way of life. If any of you were in their shoes you may very well have tried for freedom, and maybe even that ss# and food assistance! I think Glenn is a very wise and caring and Godly man…if he is bringing light to this problem it is because he knows there is needless SUFFERING and, as usual, our government is not helping it get better, but making it worse. At the very least, instead of turning a cold heart on this story, pray for these people. What if it were you or a loved one? We are ALL connected.

    I don’t think they should be here either, and I really do wish they could fix our borders and get this under control…but until they do, are we gonna just sit by and let children suffer???? I guess this is what God meant in 2 Timothy 3 … This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

    7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. And…It shouldn’t matter where they came from…If they are hungry, feed them, if they are thirsty, give them a drink…If they need clothing, give them clothes. Luke 10:25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

    26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

    27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

    28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

    29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

    30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

    36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

    37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

    Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” And even if you don’t believe in God and the Bible…this is a humanitarian issue… I am blown away at the complete disregard of human life in this day and age.

    It is very likely their parents sent for them and did not abandon them. The traffickers are the ones guilty of abandoning the kids. My neighbor found a boy of 8 or 9 along the back road where we live. We are just under one mile fm the river at that point. The child was left by the “coyote” and managed to find his way to the road. It was a walk thru thorny brush, deep weeds, and the occasional cattle herd in the field.

    He was a lucky one.

    Border Patrol and PDs regularly find DBs (dead bodies) in the brush and along the river’s bank. The river is more treacherous than it looks. Abt a year ago, I had a Mexican teenager (17 or so) come to my door. While waiting for PD to come, I fed him and let him wash up. He put down 4 cans of soda in less than 5 minutes. When PD came, they discovered that the friend he came with had drowned in the river as this child watched. The one I tended was scared and shivering on a hot day.

    This is reality.

    Glenn should really investigate who is putting the word out in Central America that our border is open. I’d bet money the administration or it’s allies are bankrolling it. I’m all for helping them to a bath and clean clothes and a hot meal; on the plane back to their homeland. As a native Texan, I’ve dealt with the cost (and it is CONSIDERABLE) of illegals to state and local taxpayers. IF they are allowed to stay for any time, ship them to BLUE states! Maybe if they had to foot the cost, they would have a different perspective. We aren’t just talking taxes here, but lower wages, higher health care expenses, dumbed down education, higher crime and it goes on and on and on. As a new Texan, Glenn, you really haven’t lived it yet. These children will be farmed out all over the country and will be here for years, maybe permanently. Children with adults will be turned loose and told to appear in court; they will never be seen again. They will be nothing but a drain on our society. What they should do is keep them in a confined space and expedite deportation hearings immediately! Then I would be more than willing to help. We are at the point where we have to do as instructed on an airplane when the oxygen comes down; take care of our own first!

    That is where the feds make it difficult. Those whose parents are already here will have the kids shipped there. Those who do not have parents who can be found will be put in foster care.

    Also as I said, they were primarily Theistic rationalists, which means, they took elements of Christianity and elements of natural religion and then, using rationalism, they kept what they thought was reasonable, was rational, and rejected what they considered to be irrational.

    I think they should be sent back to their country but until our Government decides to do that and we make a stand, change our laws and secure our borders we have the duty has HUMAN BEINGS to help our fellow man. If it were you in these conditions wouldn’t you hope you’d be shown compassion and given food and a toilet to use? In now way is this justifiable, I don’t care what the crime is.

    Oh and Morgan, some of them ARE animals! Cutting off ears and fingers; working for the cartels. Many of the older kids are members of drug gangs. Imagine when they are sitting in class next to your daughter. My kids sat in classes with illegals. Every instruction had to be repeated in Spanish, most of the translators were other students, so only HALF of the material in the class ever got covered. Dumbed down! My teens couldn’t find summer jobs because illegals held most of the low wage jobs in the area. My daughter with a concussion couldn’t get medical care at the ER until after the illegals who had been in a knife fight and were still fighting in the hall were treated. THAT is the reality.

    I take in the sick, the hungry, the needy and have compassion for others and I have compassion for these people that’s why I am willing to donate what little money I have to make sure they get food, water and a toilet to use. I would willingly take some in but our Government is holding them here and won’t let them leave that’s why donations have been asked for, so that these things can be brought to them in the mean time so they don’t have to continue to suffer these sick conditions. I agree that change needs to happen so they aren’t as you say “a drain on our society” but that isn’t going to happen right now, that will take a lot of fight from us and time. But what we can do now is help these people to make sure they are treated like humans.

    Really? These children are not even working age … their parents back home dropped them off with God only knows who, hoping and praying that they would safely arrive, and have a better life.

    Be angry at DC, at Wall Street, at the media … we all agree. But, these children are victims of the evil you describe. Failure to extend them grace & mercy would make us evil, too.

    I don’t know why you are arguing this point. I don’t think that we should let illegals keep flooding in, I think we need to crack down on our laws and our borders but right now we have children and people (some are criminals and some are not) that are living in their own filth and starving and being held here by our Government. Have compassion.

  • indthinker91

    I agree with you. I come from a legal immigrant mother. FROM A WAR torn country. All the paperwork and the immunizations and sponsorship. My mother had to forgo speaking her language so she could learn English. My mother is a proud US Citizen, she roots for any team USA, heck we are even watching soccer because she insists that we support our country. She believes in hard work and not taking a handout unless you earned it. We sponsored many of her family here and had to go without to make sure the immigration process was LEGAL and legit. That they became productive members of our society in order to give back. It’s a shame these days.

Only allow children to stay in America? What, besides encouraging illegals, is taking care of these people going to solve? If you give a child a treat every time they disobey, they’re going to continue to disobey. Returning them to Mexico is not mean or inhumane, it shows that this illegal border jumping crap will not be tolerated. United States support too many illegals as it is, it’s not our responsibility to support the stupidity and neglect of other countries. Mexico doesn’t tolerate U.S. citizens breaking their laws, the U.S. shouldn’t tolerate them breaking our laws. For goodness sake, we were once a nation feared by everyone, the top dog. Poor leadership and American’s tolerance to it have made this country so vulnerable. Come on America! Hike up your skirt and get your balls back. Make them a sack lunch, and SEND THEM HOME!

The present administration has run amok and is creating probelms every day and totally disregarding its citizens. If Glenn feels so compassionate why doesn’t HE go down to the border and donate a few million as a charity. It can all be written off as a business donation.

    I was just made aware of the problem of returning these folks.

    Apparently to return an illegal immigrant (came here without any papers) you have to have papers. There must be a travel visa produced for the immigrant to be returned, which means that Columbo has to do a lot of work, finding out all the immigrant’s personal information, in order to put on paper.

    Trying to figure out who someone is, let alone one that is hostile about being returned to their home, seems amazingly difficult. They lie about their identity, origin, age, and everything else asked of them. Sending prints to the Mexican government, who does not want them back, is met with a lot of “No Match”.

    Thus, getting illegals home is 1000x harder than dumping them off at a bus stop and letting them find a box and soup kitchen. We’re never getting rid of them and many of these young kids are being pulled into groups like MS13, thus crime is going to skyrocket.

    Feeding and housing migrants is a minor issue. Jobs are abundant for immigrants, they work far cheaper (under min wage), and thus these jobs cannot legally be offered to American citizens. American citizens simply cannot “Afford” to work at the levels migrants will work. I feel the risk of them being exploited and becoming criminals is the biggest threat we face, and ultimately the most costly, as incarceration per capita is very expensive.

    Why is Joe Biden in the countries that are encouraging these illegals to come here, offering MILLIONS of dollars to THEM to improve the conditions that, supposedly, make these people come here? Those MILLIONS of dollars could be spent securing our borders so that these humanitarian situations are not created.
    We already know that money does NOT improve economies or eliminate violence. BILLIONS have been spent eliminating poverty and violence in THIS country since the 1960′s, and where are we on that???? We don’t have enough jobs for our own citizens despite the BILLIONS that have been spent by this prez.
    I’m for getting all the school buses (that are owned by tax-paying citizens) and driving them ALL back over the border. Mexico allowed them to enter its borders and travel across its country illegally, so drop them right on back there for MEXICO to deal with the humanitarian issues.

  • Michelle

    Glen is absolutely right! Decent people have to do something to help these innocent children. They have been dumped, abandoned, sold by their parents, or taken by trickery from them. They are not criminals, but victims. If we allow the federal government to wrongfully imprison helpless children, what won’t we allow. We were able to care for hundreds of thousands of people after Katrina by spreading out the effort and working locally.

    If 5000 churches or service groups agree to take responsibility for 10 children each, all of the children can be placed in HOMES like abandoned children should be. The members of the groups/churches could volunteer to work with local authorities to call for volunteer “foster” families to take the children in. Our family would do it, and I know others here in Spokane who would also. Some people have told me that there are already not enough foster parents to take in kids, but I’m guessing that it would be like when it is publicized that a child is found abandoned and many families ask to take the child. Obviously, if a youth is violent, other arrangements will need to be made.

    Clearly there are issues here, but I know of families who have traveled to other countries to adopt… and these children are here NOW. Churches send people to work with children like these in other countries. There may be criminals among the children who have been abandoned, but clearly there are true victims. If the people who call themselves Christians in this country don’t do what’s right, and soon, may God have mercy on our souls!

    I think you misunderstood what I said, let me be more clear. I don’t care one iota about anything they do, say, feel, or are. DO NOT take them to any processing plant, any camp, any hospital, take them immediately back to the border and push them back over. Also, take the damn waverunners and boats from the people bringing them across the border and arrest those people. I see no reason to be kind to anyone COMMITTING A FELONY just because of their age.

  • Twaddlefree

    They are told the exact words to say so that they will be accepted as “refugees” instead of being treated as the illegals they are. They are seeking better lives and don’t care how they obtain that. It’s hard to have compassion, especially in a form that will only perpetuate their plight by creating government dependents. If private charity wants to take this on, that’s its choice. But I have a choice as to what I donate my hard-earned dollars to, and it won’t be this.

    So, we are supposed to take a person in who is violating the law and spend money sending them back to where they are from because if we didn’t; we’d be violating a law? Wow. What law would be violated if we denied them entry due to their place of origin? I don’t care who, what, when, where; there is only one word that should be used to every attempt to enter illegally, which is a felony you know – that word is NO! Just because that idiot in the White House refuses to uphold the law, doesn’t mean we have to commit the same crime.

    34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    We do have compassion. However, we also know that if we give into one place, it won’t stop the government from finding another location to overload with illegals. No one wants to see these children harmed. It isn’t our lack of caring that’s causing the problem!! Everyone wants a solution. We can’t depend on Washington to find solution to any problem, let alone this one. What about the children that have been sent to other states and over crowded conditions, lack of bathing facilities, etc??? Where does it stop? Helping one location is a feel good moment and then what??

    Let this be clearly thought out, however. Before we give ANYTHING to ANYONE who is not ALREADY in our country, NOT ONE FAMILY MEMBER OF THESE CHILDREN GETS IN!!! The back-door tactic many of them are going to attempt must be STOPPED! Let us care for their children since they, obviously, do not. Send them back home? I don’t know. Grant them amnesty and citizenship? I don’t know. Allow there pathetic family members that are going to use them for a free ticket here? ABSOLUTELY NOT! We are a nation of immigrants. So many of our ancestors came from similar situations as these children. We know what was expected of them when they arrived. They had to struggle. They had to work. They had to learn. Let us give these children this opportunity. If we wait for the government to do it, we know what we will get. So, let us not wait for them. We don’t need them.

    I will gladly offer them water. They managed to make it FIFTEEN DAYS as illegal aliens in Mexico to get to yet another border they want to illegally cross. We don’t need to mistreat them while we harbor them long enough to send them BACK, and not back to their Central American homes, but right back across the border of Mexico from where they crossed.

    sounds like a good idea but you know as well as I do their families and parents will be here to “claim” their children sooner rather than later and will be granted some kind of “temporary” status.

    The most human thing to do would be to get them back to their own countries as quickly as possible not hold them here in these conditions for God knows how long.
    If they have family here then the family can make the choice to go back, if they have illegal family members her then deport them as well.
    We as a country can not be the dumping grounds for the worlds problems, if there are problems in their countries that is for them to straighten out, running from their countries won’t fix the problems.

    I want to be clear. I think we should do everything possible to help these abused (read the interview with Ted Cruz) children. I also believe we should lock our borders up tight. Porous borders only encourage and perpetuate this sort of thing. These children are in this situation because federal government policies allowed it. If someone doesn’t fence a swimming pool, and a child falls in and drowns, it isn’t the child’s fault. An adult could be charged with trespassing, but the child is clearly not at fault. The unfenced pool is an “attractive nuisance” and the pool owner who didn’t fence the pool is legally responsible.

    This situation has caused the worst in normally caring people to come out. Few people want to see human suffering, but the current administration has forced us to seem like barbarians. When Obama allowed the first group to cross the border and gave them shelter, he drew a line in the sand. Knowing the border states are the ones seeing the brunt of the illegal alien population and are the most against opening the borders, he simply said “screw you” again did what he wanted, not the people. It’s time for the states that are housing them to say “no”. No to FEMA, who doesn’t do too great when we have our own disasters, no contracts with vendors to provide these shelters, no to everything except transportation to send them back to their home countries. We have so many homeless and impoverished in our own country that we need to address. This is just adding to the problem. We are no long economically able to be the savior of the world’s problems. We are no longer the lead country that can save other countries from their own problems. Until we are back on top, we need to pull up the ladders and close the fences. Sounds cruel, but life is cruel, now, even in the USA.

    knew they were coming in January. They knew the borders would be overwhelmed

    When they send back most of the dollars they make in America, where they are worth a lot more in purchasing power, they are supporting their own countries, not the country sustaining them. They’ve been asked if they want to be American citizens. Most do NOT. They only want to make money and take it back home. It is the American Democrats who want to force them to become citizens so that they have their votes, thus amnesty is the only option.
    If America would stop the flow of illegals long enough for Americans to realize that our economy has changed FOREVER, there will be no lack of workers for any kind of job. Stop the lies to our children that they can do whatever they want to do with an overpriced college education that they go into debt for, and teach them that hard WORK is the real American dream.

    It isn’t often I can agree with Glenn. Sometimes I find him completely bonkers with crackpot theories and wild assumptions. However, Glenn, unlike many within the ranks of the “Christian” right, seems to have actually comprehended (some of) the teachings of Jesus Christ. The same cannot be said for many within this thread. As a Christian, who also happens to be a libertarian politically, I imagine the same people calling these people “vermin” and openly wishing harm to them for risking everything for the prospect of a better life are the same people who would bash homosexuality behind the veil of their “Christian” beliefs.

    Any person who can believe somebody is vermin for such a minor offense has no right to consider themselves a Christian and to do so is not only an offense, but a direct attack on those who actually follow the teachings of Christ. While man may be flawed, and our sinfulness inherent, one must still recognize this fact in themselves and actively try to combat it. I’m solidly with Glenn on this one. People need not suffer while in our custody. We as a people are better than that. We as a people are above such pettiness. If you are only a Christian for your own salvation, you’re not a Christian.

If our founders were deists, why did they always engage in prayer before and after meetings asking for God’s guidance. Look at the religions of the signers of the declaration of Independence and in fact how many of our founders were also protestant ministers. You either are an idiot or a liar.

    It’s amazing to see the hate-filled comments and I am saddened by the response of many. Those kids are being USED by by even many here to further their own hatred and ignorance. Suffer the little children… When we turn our backs on the helpless, we turn our backs on God. If there is indignation fine, but let it be indignation towards those who ARE using thes kids. THEY ARE NOT to blame. Blame is something those in leadership of OUR government do to avoid their authority and responsibility. If WE do that, we are NO BETTER than the current leadership and hatred will win. NO FOLKS, regardless of hatred, bitterness, strife, envy, jealousy, etc. LOVE WILL WIN.

    Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinkes no evil;

    6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

    7 Love Bear all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

    8 LOVE never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

    YES LOVE WINS. FOR GOD IS LOVE. IF YOU SAY YOU LOVE GOD and HATE your brother the truth is not in you. You can’t do both. This IS the sins that Jesus himself HATED ABOVE ALL ELSE. Religious fervor, follow the RULES, no room for love. If your own donkey falls in a ditch on the Sabbath don’t you pull it out?

    Let the Love of God move your hearts not the rule of law! Suffer the little children. Let not your hearts be hardened. Humble yourselves, for if you see any who needs and you have the power to do something about it and doesn’t that’s the real kicker! Sow to something other than yourselves or the only thing you will reap is the whirlwind. God bless America? Oh He will… but how can we even utter those words with a clear conscience when we harbor the knives within our own hearts. At least humble yourselves and ask God to send those things these children need… or you can be a Scribe or a Pharisee… I humble myself, Please do the same…

    Glenn you are wrong. We can not house the entire world. We can not feed the entire world. We can not care for the entire world. This ‘crisis’ is manufactured by the liberal progressives to overwhelm us and bring in 30-50 million new uneducated citizens who will vote for the party of theft, the party of handouts at the expense of the workers. This is nothing less than an orchestrated invasion of our country led by our own President and his entire criminally corrupt administration.

    A hungry and frightened 3 year old doesn’t know they broke the law, they need help and my compassion for another of God’s children outweighs my anger over the illegal invasion.

    so Donations are going to reverse the downward spiral into a 3rd world status, thats some serious mojo right there. Cant help but wonder why we dont just donate money and all to Africa and other 3rd world countries and bring em up to a top notched lvl of society.. Donations are a good thing, im not saying they aint in some circumstances.I just think if our taxpayer paid employers that manage our nations money right, alot of the situations that need help or donations, wouldnt need em anymore, they would have sufficient fundings..for things that are legally legit. I dont blame anyone for wanting to come here in pursuit of a better life, but like u said that better life is being fatally threatened here, and all the mass migration of illegals and all from 3rd world countries to here when its detrimental to our already sensitve economic situation and directly tied to the livelihood of This country, nah these illegals and all are a bleeding open artery of the nation as things are the way they are now. They need to go back. If we can stop the bleeding out of the USA and restore it to its former glory, loosen the immigration restrictions a lil. Imjustbob has the right idea.heck lol this country falls all these illegals might have well just stayed where they immigrated from.

  • Manuel Override

    nice scriptures right there, but donating sleeping bags, and pencils, and working a soup line, isnt exactly what Jesus means when u go to talking scriptures. yes helping ur neighbor and brother out is how we are suppose to be. “man cannot live off bread alone”. .as well as ” And the disciples came to the other side of the sea, but they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6And Jesus said to them, “Watch out and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 7They began to discuss this among themselves, saying, “He said that because we did not bring any bread.” when he was meaning false teachings of the pharisee’s. Had nothing to do with worldy bread :P

    I am one of those that think the border issue is past the crisis stage. I also believe that it is a manufactured event. I too believe that the border needs to be closed and secured and the illegals sent home.

    I do not fault the “Mexicans” for doing whatever to better their lives, as a father and grandfather I would do what is necessary to take care of my family. The fault lies on the backs and shoulders of limp wrist-ed politicians.

    Meanwhile people are in direct need of SURVIVAL. The issue is not what color is their skin, where they came from, or their religion. The issue is SURVIVAL and containment of diseases. These people need human assistance and prayer.

    Long ago I needed assistance, and there were people that came to my aid. Whatever I can do is but a down payment on a debt that I owe.

  • ken.

    bull! if those jobs paid a living wage, americans would be proud to do them, just like we did before illegals came to work slave labor.

    they should not be held to begin with, they should be fingerprinted then put directly on a bus and sent back.

    we should not be housing any illegal aliens, we should not be holding hearings for them to stay or releasing them onto our streets. they should be fingerprinted so they can be banned from legally entering later then immediately put on a bus and sent back. it doesn’t matter what country they came from, mexico is allowing shelters at the border for them to stay in until they can get across our border so they should pay the price for doing that to us.

    To bring our country back – we must start with charity – Glenn said that last week – I believe that too. We have to be the light! Imagine the horror of sending a child to America in the most desperate of moved and getting them back in worse shape! Even being sent back – we
    would have 1200 more “friends” in Mexico if we (the people) handle this well. People are really willing to know toddlers and school children are living like this in OUR country? If we want our country back – we must stand for our ideals – not hide behind our agenda. The world is watching! Let’s not show the hipocracy the world expects from us.

    Wow… this is a powerful, and brave request, but I would expect nothing less from Mr. Beck. Sometimes doing the right thing isn’t always easy or clear cut, but then again when it comes to children it shouldn’t be hard at all. While I am against amnesty and the practice of supporting illegal aliens in any way I cannot see turning a blind eye to children suffering and in need. The very fact that so many people I call close friends and find so much in common with do not support helping these kids makes me that much more certain I must play a roll in helping, however small it may be. Sometimes doing the right things SUCKS, but when you really know WHY your doing it, in the end doing the right thing is the only thing to do, no matter how hard it may seem. I will stand with Mr. Beck on this even if the circle feels very small.

    But when they were in Honduras, or anyplace else and suffering, that was ok, huh Glenn? Out of sight, out of mind. Its only once in your backyard in Texas that you now find it holy to take the high road and help the poor children. Higher responsibility, really? Now i see how you roll.

    Glenn,

    You are free to solicit money for any purpose. However, when you attempt to frame your views as “right, good, and compassionate” and those who disagree as “less right, good, or compassionate” or worse, you are the one dividing us.

    Support what you please, advocate as you please, but allow those who disagree with you the possibility that they may be equally, even more correct.

    This is not the first time you have told your listeners, viewers, and subscribers it’s your way or they should hit the highway. I remain a listener, viewer, and subscriber … for now. Please stop trying to drive me away!!

    How many times have we heard these words, “It’s all about the children.” Unfortunately, the children are being used as human shields by their countries, families and our corrupt American Government. Whenever we hear those infamous words, we are suppose to take action. Many of us as viewers have a lot of compassion and show it in our own neighborhoods and communities. I will take action by either paying for the buses to take them back home, or to drive the bus myself.

    Scripture does not tell us to give blindly and not know where our tithes go. If you don’t know how your church is spending your money, then you are remiss in doing your duty as a member of that church ensuring that the money the congregants are giving are not being misused.

    Any nation that loses its humanity will soon turn on its own people. How can you not see that William? If we allow the government to warehouse other people’s innocent helpless children and to mistreat them, we give them permission to do that to ours. If we don’t stand for basic decency, what do we stand for? Read some history. Even better, read the Bible.

  • Vince W.

    But wouldn’t “shipping them back home” be cruel? After all, they made a difficult and dangerous trip just to get here (just think how horrible their home countries must be), so we can’t in good conscience send them back, can we? And that’s when the Amnestisiacs got you. Your misplaced kindness will give all of the illegals living here now citizenship and will continue to make America a welfare beacon for all non-Americans living throughout the world.

  • sherry

    There is something fishy about sending so many children over the border. Yes there could be a plan that their parents will follow once they are settled….their plan….or our governments plan….OR, there could be a war about to break in that area first and then here???

  • Michelle

    This is a message for Glenn, and a plea:

    Many of us are sickened by the angry responses we have read here. Please stand for what is right and decent. You have said many times that you strive to follow Jesus. Please follow him also in this. Jesus spoke the truth and did what the Father asked of him regardless of the crowds. If vile and hateful people want to stop being your fans and customers, please don’t worry. Trust your heavenly Father to guide you. True success, and the kingdom of God are not of this world. Jesus told us that. Many of the people who have commented want to do something to help. I suggested organizing ways to “foster” kids as long as needed. I saw where others suggested similar things. Can you help get the word out? We need to demand that the feds let us give the children homes to stay in, not camps or virtual prisons until permanent solutions are found. Every church in the nation should call for this. How do we get the word out?

    I read what a lot of you are saying. Right now these kids and people need to eat need to bath it makes me sick to hear you all talking like when they were convicting our innocent Jesus no one conceded His innocents it was their fear and anger. They are hear it doses not maters at this moment why, we are suppose to be loving and caring to all people no matter what. Our government helped it happen for political crap they do not care that they used these kids we definitely need the border secure we definitely need to send these kids an adults home using school busses is a fabulous idea as long as you can safely get them home but get the conditions the crises right now before we deal with unknown diseases they get from being in filth if you think disease will not go beyond the buildings they are in your crazy it will end up on your door after they home. if you give for reason of stopping disease roll up your sleeve give for humanity but give. Company’s that have porta-potties donate at lest 10 % it will not hurt others a dime if that’s what you have. After you help after this crises is done kids and people returned and you did your best then work on the border and get these kids home bus, plane but safe full and clean, I often think would I have helped Jesus this is your chance to respond as Jesus would . Let God multiply your fishes to feed the hungry little children get them bathed and able to feel clean and loved maybe they will go home later come back legally because YOU did the right thing first. Then send them home knowing you did the right thing. Then you can do something to get the border shut down. But stand up show the world what Americans do what would Jesus do. Let your Conscious be your guide your an American.

    Why isn’t Mercury One asking for volunteers to assist? Why is it always about money? Every time there is a disaster, it seems all they want is money. Which is fine, but sometimes giving of self is more important. I quoted a Bible verse about love, but it appears it was controversial.

  • Michelle

    Kids cannot be held responsible for our irresponsible neglect of our borders. We have allowed our borders to remain open, like an unfenced swimming pool, with a “no swimming or trespassing” sign. Adults are responsible if they fall in our pool, but WE are responsible if a child falls in. The children who are here are our responsibility. We are responsible for what our government does, because we let them do it.

    Save the kids who have fallen into the pool and FENCE the pool! If some kids can’t be returned home, the parents who effectively abandoned their children by sending them here should have their parental rights severed by our courts. This will remove any possible claim the parents might have to come here later. If the kids are adopted by responsible families, they will not be “welfare” recipients. Why don’t we give the decent families of our country a chance to care for these kids? Why do you see everything as the government’s responsibility, and therefore a cost to you as a default?

    Most of the comments I’ve read, on both sides, assume BIG government solutions to deal with the kids. The solution for the kids needs to come from individual people, not BIG government. The federal government should spend its efforts on things like national security and securing the BORDERS.

    I agree with Glenn! He’s asking because he has a heart..sadly im seeing many of u without one which is partly why this country is in the state it’s in! Greedy& selfish. That needs to stop! Come on people seriously! Yall are so spoiled u can’t share a lil bit to help hungry children. Sickens me..y’all need to go live in a third world country for a while to learn the true meaning of the life God gave u! Yes gave u. Everyones life deserves respect, even illegals in our country. There’s no reason we shouldn’t feed& clothe them while they’re here..they are Gods children. This may be the only time in their life they get that..u could make a difference by having a heart. Maybe it would help them grow up to help turn their own country around. U never know how a small gesture could make so much difference in another’s life but it takes caring& having a heart. Don’t be the selfish greedy spoiled so many have turned into..Glenn’s right that’s not American! Be a true American& have heart for everyone over yourself!

    There is a humanitarian crisis in Latin and Central America. It if failed leadership in those countries that brings their citizens to our borders. It is failed leadership in Washington DC that promotes the false assumption of millions of Latinos in believing that all they have to do is get here and they will be taken care of. It is also a national security issue as many of these people coming across are not just poor Latinos looking for a better way of life but people from everywhere. How many terrorists have been allowed to slip into our country? How many Russian and Chinese agents? We should lock down the border with US Marines and force these people to go back where they came from. We should treat the ones here with medicine and care and send them packing also. Everyone should have to stand in line to get access to the USA just like our immigrant ancestors.

  • Marianne

    No. I will not provide any aid to any illegal alien in any manner, other than to deport them from this country, preferably to Tierra del Fuego so it will take longer for them to try to walk back here.

    Their own governments do not want them, that’s why they’re allowing them to flood our country. No country in history has ever survived an invasion of, what are we up to, 40 million now? Look at Rome. If you give aid and comfort to criminal illegal aliens, which is what all these people are, then you encourage them to come here for free stuff.

    We cannot afford this:
    $17 trillion federal debt
    $1.2 trillion student loan debt
    $60 trillion private debts
    $120+ trillion unfunded liabilities
    $250+ trillion in derivatives exposure by the largest 5 banks in the USA.
    wage stagnation by numerous Americans, 1 in 5 not working.

    No, Glenn, these illegal aliens need to go back to their own countries, take responsibility for themselves, and make it there. There is nothing for them here, and if they come here, all they bring is crime, disease, poverty, blight, and decay into a Third World country. We cannot afford to take in these criminals.

Mercury One seems to be right up there w/ the Red Cross and Salvation Army as giving and doing until you bleed, and then more.

    Parents who sent their children into this country illegally are the problem. Yes I understand that the kids are here now but absolutely none of them should be allowed to stay. Treat their illnesses, feed them and find their country of origin and put them on a plane back there. Obama sure used his phone and pen to entice these people to foist their progeny on us to create another crisis, as if we didn’t have enough already. Prosecute the Pretender-in-chief before he can destroy this country.

    Remember these are children Christians. They are being used as pawns. I agree letting them stay is not the answer but again these are kids a lot of them are small. We can’t just dump them.

  • Jeff Yates

    I know that it is a humanitarian crisis; one that (politicians and those who voted for these who want amnesty); brought on ourselves. I cannot donate to Glenn Beck’s request. I have read and scrolled and read and scrolled all of the comments and see both sides. This is very difficult. We all want what’s best for those but for many it definitely means (go back home). For me; this is the tip of the iceberg. This will break America; if we cannot sustain our own budget and take care of our own who are on assistance; programs for elderly, and our military veterans. how will we provide for those who come in illegally? The Private sector will and this is exactly where the money is coming from. Our Taxes are paving the way for this corruption. They keep spending our hard earned money by US Citizens to fund programs that are illegal and corrupt. This is the moral and question of crisis that needs to be answered. Well it is pretty clear – Over run our system; keep corrupt politicians in Washington, and break America. May God Help the USA! I know that my comment is solely my opinion and not everyone will see it this way. Thank God we still have freedom of speech at least for now…

  • carol morgan

    i feel two ways about this. one is something i have seen on other forums…send them to obama and set up tent cities at the white house-1600 Pennsylvania isn’t it? and let the administration deal with them first hand. a good way to put those buses to good use. second is, we are an excetional country, we can with the grace of God and Generosity of Jesus Christ, help these people especailly the children who cannot fend for themselves…they will end up in situations of human slavery if sent back with no guardianship. less their lives while they are here.i really do believe that charity never faileth, and that we will be blessed as a nation if we do what we can to help as we can.

  • carol morgan

    we really have no idea what kind of life these people have that would make them so desperate they would sent their babies here, with no way to know what was going to happen to them or if they would ever see them again. i imagine that it would break their hearts. also they do not have the same laws we do, who even knows if they have any child abuse laws. Obama doesn’t care becuse it is happening here, not in his back yard. that is why i think they ought to be sent to the white-house in tent chities so he can feel the consequences of his actions(for once).

    Continuing down a Godless road is the collapse of America. If our nation is to be saved, it will be saved by God, and God alone.

    Feeding & looking after these children who are now on our soil until we can resolve this issue is not supporting the collapse. If having compassion for the children, who are victims of OUR evil gov’t, is impacting our situation at all, it is ONLY in this way:

    14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

    We must not allow our anger to be our only filter. Our anger is useful in pushing us to fight when we’re just sick & tired. But, if we allow it to be our only filter, and we lose our humanity, our nation, and our souls, are surely lost.

    Trust God.

    Good for you. And GodBless. But you and GlennBeck can also refrain from disparaging others whom disagree with you … because you follow Jesus. And you can fight all you want… but these kids will not be returned. You know it, and Glenn knows it. And you should also remember that you don’t even know what’s going on down there because of the media black out… which BTW… no one seems too upset about. Jesus does not expect that you allow your house to burn down to help lawless governments. Too bad you don’t demand to know why Glenn, and other media outlets, and our representatives did not know this was planned and posted on gov. sites since at least January…

    I’m sure the conditions are probably deplorable… but they will not be sent back… and the parents of these kids know better than any of us, the DANGER THEY.. and THEIR GOV’T put their own children in by handing them over to coyotes. And I hear no own in the media screaming about not having access to reporting on this. APPALLING!

    It never did. We give MILLIONS if not BILLIONS to these countries!

    I’m aware of our situation. When I say I don’t intend to become Mexico, it’s not a reference to population demographics. It’s about who we are, as a people, and as a Christian nation.

    No media blackout … are you not a Beck listener? https://soundcloud.com/buck-sexton/the-buck-sexton-show-62414

  • ryukidn

    It is not us who are doing the disparaging. For those who disagree, and do not want to give, that’s perfectly fine. But, it is those who disagree, and are coming on this website to attack those of us who believe this is the right thing to do DESPITE our anger, that are disparaging.

    And, don’t think for one minute that our compassion means we are not angry, or outraged, or less committed to defeat this evil. It is EXACTLY our commitment to defeating evil that drives us to take care of these helpless children.

    The light drives out the darkness …

    The Godless road America is on will most certainly be resolved by Him. The children are not just victims of our gov’t … but their own gov’t… and their parents… who thought it would be ok to hand them over to coyotes, whom they know much better than we do what evil they are capable of.

  • s.c.pregel

    How about sending some trucks with help to W. Virginia little towns, or NM, or Bunnell in FL? Who is taking care of hungry kids in America? I have not seen such children in need even in communist Yugoslavia where I grew up as I have seen in this country. Shame on you, Glenn Back for trying to use this for your goals(?)!

  • ryukidn

    Their parents responded to an invitation extended by our gov’t. They wanted their children to have a chance at better life. So, no, I don’t really blame them.

    It is OUR government, trying to collapse our country using Saul Alinsky and Cloward & Piven techniques, that is entirely to blame for what is happening now inside America. WE are our government, and WE are responsible for our country, and WE are responsible to look after the children who are here alone with no one to care for them.

  • ryukidn

    You got it, Sandra … he’s not proposing we buy them nintendos & set them up for a permanent stay. The children who are here w/o anyone to care for them need help.

    It’s unclear, at this point, how we can send them back, though. How the heck do we find their families in central America?

    No I do not. And Beck isn’t the only media outlet. The media is not allowed in… did you hear what she said? That is a black-out. Gestapo tactics. And she admits that border patrol knows exactly where they are crossing on rafts… and they are not being stopped.

    They need to be sent back ASAP—none of them look underfed–missing a couple
    of meals isn’t starving to death! IT WOULD BE MORE HUMANE TO FLY THEM BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY OR ORIGIN—MILITARY CARGO PLANES HAVE A TREMENDOUS CAPACITY–it doesn’t need to be commercial flights! Let’s get some common sense here–half are families?!? That’s news nobody is telling us–they say it is the CHILDREN who need cared for!! BS!! Some of those male “kids” look like gang members to me! SEND THEM HOME, PERIOD! MILITARY AIR CARGO–THEY’D BE HOME IN A COUPLE OF DAYS!!!
    I applaud Glenn for his wonderful humane thoughts and that’s fine for a temporary short fix BUT THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE SENT BACK!

  • Sandra

    We take them to the consulate of their country and let them figure it out. It’s not our responsibility to care for these children. As soon as we do, then the parents will be at our door saying “but my child is there!” and at this particular point in time we already know what will be done,

  • ryukidn

    Indeed.

  • ryukidn

    They’re not Mexicans. They’re from Central America. That said, anyone adult who came with this wave should absolutely be sent back, and any children they brought with them should go with them.

    My concern is the orphaned kids, especially the toddler ages. As Christians, Americans, human beings, we ARE obligated to look after those kids until we find a solution.

    That, of course, begs the question: What the heck do we do with them? We can’t very well send them on a hike back to their homes. Finding their parents is incredibly difficult, maybe impossible. The reality is that those children may be here for a long time. If that does turn out to be the case, do we want the commies to raise them, or do we want patriots to raise them?

  • ryukidn

    Your point is valid from a what the heck are we doing standpoint. But, helping with food & port-o-potties doesn’t change that.

    We can help stop that by spreading the news that we do have via TheBlaze. The media won’t cover the truth … they haven’t for LONG time. But, when we are actively involved, and we push the truth out into the mainstream, it can force them to tell the truth. And, even if it doesn’t, often WE succeed in taking truth viral, and it creates the moral outrage required for action. Examples: Justina Pelletier & Kermit Gosnell.

  • ryukidn

    I understand our situtation. My reference to not becoming Mexico does not refer to demographics, but to who WE are as a people, and as a nation.

    Americans are good people … not perfect, but we are a good and thankful people. Because we are so fortunate, and we know “to whom much is given, much is expected”, Americans are the first responders for people all over the world who are in trouble. America IS a Christian nation, and, because of that, America IS exceptional.

    We must keep the spirit of America, and, when it becomes the hardest, like it is now, that is when we must hold tightest to our principles.

  • ryukidn

    If we can’t send the orphaned children back, with no parents, they must be taken in, and we should do that.

  • ryukidn

    We still have to feed them & look after them for now, but that’s an idea with some promise. We could check with the handful of good people in DC & see how that might happen.

  • ryukidn

    The gov’t is trying to impose a media blackout, and the MSM cowards are compliant, but there is not a media blackout when we refuse to comply with their unconstitutional rules. Thank God, we have our own media.

    No, TheBlaze is not the only media outlet, but they are arguably the most courageous & effective media outlet. And, they are on the border reporting, despite the gov’t. So, now, you too have more information about what’s happening on the border.

    The BP is overwhelmed. It’s a Cloward & Piven, orchestrated crisis. They have to change diapers, process all the other illegals, stop new illegals … YIKES! There are not enough of them to do it all, which is the whole point of Cloward & Piven.

    You might really enjoy TheBlaze, and I guarantee you will learn so much about all kinds of topics. You can subscribe to TheBlaze, but if you’re in a money crunch, you can still get almost all of the shows for free on Soundcloud and iTunes. I hope you’ll consider it.

  • ryukidn

    All true … and allowing that evil to stand makes us complicit. We must do what’s right, even when we’re angry.

  • Anonymous

    I supported Beck since the beginning of time! No need to explain ClowardPiven to me or what the BP is doing. I am well informed and involved. Attended quite a few of his events..even one of his shows in NY ..even met him on the street before the show! I cancelled my membership a year ago. While he still has much to bring to the table…I do not like the newly ordained Glenn. He’s turned on his subscribers too many times for doing exactly what he preaches about… do your own homework… except when you do.. he gets along with everyone… except when he doesn’t … he’s threatened to expose, to blow open… and he doesn’t.. His fascination with Disney disgusted me… his new sanctimonious attitude has turned my stomach one too many times. I was disappointed with him for a long time.. until I realized I just out grew him.

  • Christie LaRue McBride

    I completely agree. I wrote this blog last night about the issue of immigration reform and whether or not some of our own laws are immoral and need to be broken if our politicians don’t stand up and DO SOMETHING to fix it. http://everfaith.org/2014/06/25/a-colossal-end-to-the-notion-of-the-immigration-line/

  • Elena

    Bob — illegal crossing is not a felony or even a misdemeanor. It’s a civil offense — like a parking ticket.

    Congress would need to move it fm civil to criminal court.

  • Elena

    The law does not work that way. It would be like shipping them to Canada, a different third country. We must follow the law or become like that we deplore.

  • Elena

    God helps those who help themselves is NOT in the Bible. If you can find, cite it. It’s an American proverb out of Protestant New England.

    I did not pull Matt 25:40 out of context, and I am less liberal than El Rusbo…

    Here is the full parable of the sheep and goats for you to study:

    The Sheep and the Goats

    31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

    34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fireprepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

    44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

    45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

    46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

    This parable is correctly used in regard to the illegals. Nowhere does the parable say that we are required to offer then citizenship, only basic Christian hospitality and kindness in meeting an immediate need.

    I would put them on C-130 transports and send them back to their capital cities, not set them loose here to disappear. However, I am also for meeting their immediate needs before transport. It is the Christian hospitable thing to do.

  • Elena

    We agree on that. Treat them with kindness and send them home. That is all I have said throughout this thread.

  • Elena

    Then come on down here. There are corpses for you to walk over scattered across the brush lands. Oh, you might want to bring a good set of boots. The mesquite thorns are quite something. I’ve lost tires to them and to the palmetto frond thorns.

    The Central Americans are not abt a coup. Most of them just want a better life. I favor they create that life back in their home countries by changing the forms of governments they have (oligarchs mostly now). The rest of the Central Americans, gang bangers and such, don’t want a coup either. They just want to sell drugs and kidnap your children for ransom. They need to infest some jail in their home countries.

  • Elena

    Huh? Who came to Germany after WWI seeking handouts? Nobody. Germany was not like the South after the Civil War which was inundated by carpetbaggers fm the North looking for cheap land and labor.

  • Elena

    Actually, it is quite a fitting Scripture to cite.

    The liberals do misuse it, but here it is used correctly. Jesus is not saying we are to grant citizenship. We are to grand basic hospitality.

    This was the passage that was preached when I was ordained.

  • ryukidn

    I’m sorry to hear that, Lisa. My experience has been primarily positive. While he is a courageous patriot, he is still a man, and some days, the emotional roller coaster we’re all experiencing may get the better of him. But, who am I to judge? That roller coaster gets the better of me some days.

    In Beck’s defense, I don’t think he intends to come across as sanctimonious. One of the reasons I really enjoy his show is because his experiences, particularly the spiritual experiences, frequently mirror my own. And, like most of us, he is on a personal journey, so he’s usually one good epiphany away from a complete 180. That’s seems to be the sometimes crazy nature of personal journeys … but it sure is an interesting and rewarding way to walk through life.

    As our individual experiences & personalities are so unique, so too is the stimulus that aids our personal growth. I sure do hope you’ve found a next, hopefully not final, happy place, so you can continue to grow.

    Elena, are you able to READ? I never ONCE stated that “God helps those who help themselves” is from the Bible. I clearly wrote “I prefer the IDIOM…” I probably should have used the word MOTTO to make it easier for you.

    I used the word PARAPHRASE when I responded to Gary VenRoy on his comment “In as much as you have done to the least of these….” which is a PARAPHRASING of Matthew 25:40.

    I think maybe you should climb down from your little ivory soapbox and stop handing out parables for others to study. You need a mirror.

  • http://www.naomiliz.com/ Naomi Liz Figueroa

    Michelle, this is a wonderful response. I love that you have the idea of fostering these children. There are already organizations that do this–namely, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (http://lirs.org/fostercare/). This is the national website, and it seems there are local/state websites for Lutheran Refugee services.
    In Pennsylvania, for example, they are “Lutheran Child and Family Services” (lcfsinpa.org) and they have a foster program for Unaccompanied Minor Refugee Children. [This is the info I have received from them in the past: Become foster parents for unaccompanied refugee minor children – children and teens who have become separated during flight from family members and undocumented children and teens who have been picked up by authorities need persons that want to open their homes to become foster parents for refugee minors.] I believe that there are similar things throughout the country (I think the branch in New England does the same foster program). I’m not sure where in the country you are located, but I would definitely recommend googling Lutheran Refugee services in your state, or checking out the national site above. Thank you! God bless!

    You may get sick to your stomache, thinking people are selfish. You cannot give what is not yours to give,which is what this administration wants from us. They have millions in their wallets, they can afford to be generous, let them do so.This is not a crisis per say,it was planned that has been proven.There are over 92 million unemployed in his country half that number on food stamps. Do I have a heart for others? Yes I do. This is an old game played out by some very old immature people. What about taking care of our own ? That is more than we can do now. Please stop being so gullible. People engrossed in scandal after scandal are all of a sudden opening their arms to others? There is a reason for this , who profits….stop being so gullible.
