Glenn: If we want the government to do less, we must do more

On Saturday, Glenn and Mercury One traveled to the border town of McAllen, Texas to distribute some $2 million worth of aid to local charities and churches. What Glenn saw that day was truly profound, and it caused him to question much of what is being reported when it comes to the so-called humanitarian crisis on our border. On radio this morning, Glenn explained the work of private charities in the region and explained why we must not forget that in order for the government to do less, the American people must do more.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

Catholic Charities is doing a really great job. Sister Norma Pimentel (executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley) is doing a great job. She’s not somebody I agreed with on the border – by any stretch of the imagination – but she is a good-hearted woman. And as she took us into the medical facility the Catholic Church has brought in and the town of McAllen is helping pay for and private donations are paying for. Private doctors are volunteering their time. I met a doctor from San Antonio who’s coming out just on the weekends to help. Nurses are doing the same thing.

She showed us the kitchens where they’re feeding some of these people. She said, ‘We have to feed them only soup because they can’t handle anything.’ Do you remember when the story first came out that probably pissed you off? ‘Oh, yeah, and now they’re coming over and they don’t like our food. They’re complaining about the food.’ No, they’re not complaining about the food. Why was that story written that way? They’re not complaining about the food. Their bodies can’t handle the food. Most of them have been on the road for at least 30 days. They haven’t had any real food. It’s just like the concentration camps. You can’t just open up the doors and say, ‘Okay, everybody have sandwiches.’

She said, ‘We’re feeding them soup. But a couple of the women, they’ve come and the doctors will examine them. They’ve needed IV bags.’ And that’s when I said to this woman – who’s very kind and compassionate, big-hearted – ‘Hang on, Sister Norma, just a second here. They’re coming to you after being dropped off at the bus depot. They’re coming to you after a week at the FEMA detention center. How is it they still can’t handle any food? How is it that they are leaving there dehydrated, and you are giving them vaccinations and shots?’ And I think because she didn’t want any controversy, she said, ‘Well, the women probably didn’t say anything at the detention center.’ And I didn’t get into an argument with her. And I don’t want to put words in her mouth that she did not say. But I have a hard time understanding how the Catholic Church is asking these questions. How the Catholic Church has a volunteer doctor who is examining people and saying, ‘You need IV you’re dehydrated.’ And how our federal government isn’t doing that.

This is the answer why you’re not seeing any pictures of this humanitarian crisis because it is the Superdome in several locations. You need to understand and you need to be the voice that tells people, ‘Don’t close your heart because of those people who lied about you after Hurricane Katrina. Because there is real need.’ The press must demand to be let in. The only way to stop this is through transparency. We are breaking up families.

Let me tell you something. We are putting traumatized people on a bus and just dropping them off at the Greyhound bus depot. Traumatized people, traumatized children, who may never recover. And how much will they cost us later if you want to boil it down to that? How much will they cost us later? How much damage has been done to these children by the drug lords, by their own families, by the trip? And then by the federal government saying, ‘No hugs. no touching’ and break the family up again and separate them by age. It’s a nightmare. We are so much better than this. And this part of it has nothing to do with justice. This has everything to do with mercy. Justice must be done. We must close our border. We must stop this insanity. We are empowering all of the bad people. We are destroying people. It must end now.

But while we declare that, we have got to get our churches involved. We have got to get people who actually care. The government has no heart. It wasn’t designed to have a heart. You have the heart. Our churches have the heart. Our relief organizations – they have the heart. They should be the ones doing this. If you want the government to do less, then we must do more. You know the government has no heart. You know your church does have a heart. Find these FEMA centers. Picket, protest, call, do whatever you have to do. Forget about the buses coming in to your towns for a second. Get into those shelters and help these children. Help them. They are alone. They are afraid. They’re traumatized. And our government is aiding in the trauma.

    Could Mercury One expand the relief and start asking for money to help pay for IV bags and the drip meds that are needed as well as everything else, please? The food isn’t going to do anyone any good if people are too sick to eat. As for breaking up families that’s always been done when large numbers of people get moved anywhere. No matter if it’s now or during the first waves of immigrants a hundred and more years ago. Sad but that’s the way people welcoming other people to this country have always handled things. Thank heaven these immigrants don’t get their last names changed to sound more American the way the other immigrants coming through Ellis Island did.

    “If we want government to do less, we must do more.”

    I disagree. We are not slaves. Government is supposed to be. It is constituted by a Constitution, which spells out what it is to do. Like a line in the sand: “… this far, and no further …”. That’s how it’s supposed to work. Government doesn’t have the right to do what we chose not to do. It is supposed to be restrained and constricted. If something government isn’t supposed to do needs to be done, and we don’t do it, it doesn’t get done. Period. The people who blame government for not doing whatever are the lazy bums who are supposed to be doing the whatever; they are the enablers of a trespassing government.

  • Debbie

    Well Glenn you don’t enable a Government that intentionally cause this border crisis. Who is intentionally breaking the LAW knowingly. We must obey the LAWS of the LAND. What you are trying to do now is justify what you did knowing it was not the right thing to do!!

    Well, well what is this all about….
    The defamation lawsuit against Beck has a hearing scheduled for the 29th of July. Beck’s legal team is trying to get the case dismissed, but their brief had a blatantly false assertion in it which shows how desperate they are. Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, or traducement—is the communication of a false statement that harms the reputation of an individual, business, product, group, government, religion, or nation. Most jurisdictions allow legal action to deter various kinds of defamation and retaliate against groundless criticism.

    Psalm 1:1
    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. Do not join the agenda of the ungodly.How well God must like you— you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.

    Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. “Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character. Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned.

    1 Timothy 5:8
    8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
    Take care of widows who are destitute. If a widow has family members to take care of her, let them learn that religion begins at their own doorstep and that they should pay back with gratitude some of what they have received.

    This pleases God immensely. You can tell a legitimate widow by the way she has put all her hope in God, praying to him constantly for the needs of others as well as her own. But a widow who exploits people’s emotions and pocketbooks—well, there’s nothing to her. Tell these things to the people so that they will do the right thing in their extended family. Anyone who neglects to care for family members in need repudiates the faith. That’s worse than refusing to believe in the first place.

    That’s a stupid thing to say and you should feeling bad for writing it.

    Just in case you didn’t actually watch the video (and I doubt you did) I’ll inform you that they weren’t even allowed to touch the kids, much less transport them. If he had actually bought any plane tickets they those tickets would have gone to waist because the government would never have allowed a private organization to personally deport any of the illegal immigrant children.

    NO we DO NOT have to do more. We need to send them back where they came from and spend this insane amount of money and charity on US citizens who have nothing and need help. Charity begins at home. I don’t see any bleeding heart caring this much about the homeless here.

  • landofaahs

    We do not pick up where government stops. We encourage and expect people to care for themselves and caring for those who truly can’t take care of themselves. Almost everyone has something they can contribute. People who just want a handout should be either work or starve. Jesus said that he that “WIILL NOT” work, neither shall he eat. Even in heaven we will have work to do just as Adam and Eve tended the Garden of Eden.

  • Yolanda Stepka

    Have any of you lived through a disaster, man made or otherwise? This is a man made disaster with what is going on in our southern borders. It just shames me to think that there are people in this world who are hell bent on destroying our country and who are complicit in his destruction. When it comes to what is going on at the borders, we as a compassionate country should show mercy for those who have made it to this country. These “men” women and children are but pawns of a greater evil. We have a choice to make, we stand up and fight back against this evil but yet show “mercy” and love who have been victims by them. Yes I agree wholeheartedly in closing the borders and to discourage those who would be victims that there are other options for them. We need to share those options and insist that our government perform their duties to protect first the citizens of this country. But we the people must be like the “good Samaritan” who will help these victims to the road to recovery so that they too can either return to their country of origin. We need to be witnesses to the atrocities that is hidden from the American people that is being committed on these victims. Once you have been a witness, ask then why should we not show mercy? Direct your anger towards the government, they have done such a poor job of protecting you!

  • Elena

    Actually, it was Paul to the Thessalonians, not Jesus.

    Before Jesus taught, He generally saw to the people’s immediate physical needs — feeding the 5000 comes to mind, casting out demons comes to mind, healing broken bodies comes to mind.

    You can hear nothing on an empty stomach.

    Paul was cautioning the folks who thought that Jesus was coming right back and had sat down to wait for Him. He was not talking abt illegal immigrants who just passed thru the crucible of Mexico and are hungry.

  • Elena

    Beck is talking more broadly abt what we expect gov’t to do and not to do.

    Pls read the Constitution and notice the power given to the central gov’t — making war, foreign policy, interstate commerce.

    All the things you take for granted like social security, Medicare, and other gov’t functions should be properly handled by state and local gov’ts, not the central gov’t. Lazy, uneducated people sitting on urban porches and running drugs thru our streets should be at work not on welfare. Welfare has rewarded bad behavior — fatherlessness and multiple births — by increasing the amount of the check! The gov’t does not know how to heal the brokenness; it only can throw money at a problem. Charities (NGOs) have the expertise to begin to heal the brokenness thru “tough love” not just another batch of free phones and money on an EBT.

    You don’t look very hard for help for the homeless here, do you? It’s the same players — Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, and other faith groups trying to make a difference. Many, not all, homeless are homeless for psychiatric reasons, not poverty reasons.

    The “Projects” or section 8 housing is the gov’t attempt to end homelessness in America. How well is that working for the inner city? Not well at all. Until a homeless person can find pride in owning a home, all the handouts in the world won’t make a bit of difference in that person’s character.

    These illegal immigrants are not homeless. They are moving fm one home to a home w/relatives where you live. Their issue is not homelessness but illegally arriving here.

  • Elena

  • Elena

    We have plenty of hungry poor people in the Valley who will be delighted to eat this fare.

    The illegals are not here for the free food; they are here to move in with relatives where you live.

  • Elena

    How do you figure Beck is enabling the feds? He’s trying to meet a need of a fellow human being. For a Mormon, he is doing exactly what the New Testament points toward in action. Ever read the Good Samaritan? Samaritans were despised by the Jews every bit as much as the Romans had been. There may have been even greater antipathy toward them since they were in part leftover Israelites fm the time of the Assyrian conquest of Israel. The other part of them was pure gentile, brought in by the Assyrians as place holders on the land. The Samaritans has opposed the returning Judahites like Ezra and Nehemiah. Thus they were really despised.

    Yet Jesus takes a Samaritan as the hero of the story. The Samaritan did what the LORD required — he showed mercy to the Jew who had been beaten by other Jews (thugs) and left for dead by other Jews (priest and Levite).

    Jesus, furthermore, tells us that He will sort us out based on how we treated others, esp the weakest (also a recurring theme of the OT prophets). Goats are condemned for calling on the Lord but not acting on His commands. Sheep are accepted not for calling on the Lord but for seeing a need and meeting it in accord with the Lord’s command.

    I am a retired officer and love my country. However, I love Jesus more. I will obey Him first and foremost when there is a conflict in what do I do next. I suspect Beck is also dealing with that interior conflict in the same way. He has not advocated amnesty for the illegals. He has advocated mercy for them. There is a difference.

    Has since been revised:

    Reports have surfaced that shots were fired from the Mexican side at US Border Patrol agents.

    Action 4 News reached out to US Border Patrol and they confirm shots were fired south of Granjero.

    The incident happened on July 18th around 8:00 in the evening.

    “Shots were not directed at agents,” according to Border Patrol Spokesperson Omar Zamora.

    However, Fox News reported, “Bullets ricocheted into an area where Border Patrol agents were positioned, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told FoxNews.com.”

    Border patrol agents are always advised to “utilize their ballistic vests and work in teams,” Border Patrol said.

    Action 4 News will provide further information once further details are released.

    The essence of that law suit:

    http://www.krgv.com/news/marathon-victim-sues-glenn-beck-for-defamation/

    BOSTON (AP) A Saudi Arabian man injured in the Boston Marathon bombings has filed a defamation lawsuit against Glenn Beck, accusing the conservative commentator of saying on the air that the plaintiff was “the money man” behind the attack.

    In the federal lawsuit filed Friday in Boston, Abdulrahman Alharbi says his reputation was “substantially and severely damaged” as a result of Beck’s statements tying him to the bombings.

    The 20-year-old Alharbi, who attends college in the Boston area, says in his lawsuit that he was injured in the bombings and was questioned by authorities who searched his apartment before determining he had no connection to the attack.

    His lawsuit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.

    Beck’s agent didn’t immediately respond to a phone call Tuesday seeking comment on the lawsuit.

    Seems to me so called CHARITY is part of the problem and profit off of it getting worse, just as much as the cartels. If anything they have a vested interest to make it worse.

    The Catholic Bishops alone received $65.9 million in federal grants to care for unaccompanied alien childrenand refugees, according to its 2012 annual report.

    By contrast, the group raised $1.4 million from its own church members while federal loans and private-sector grants made up the remainder of the $71 million spent on the resettlements that year. That means 93 percent of the USCCB’s spending on charity work with UACs and refugees was covered by the American taxpayer.

    Kevin Appleby, director of USCC’s Migration and Refugee Services Office, did not respond to calls and emails from WND seeking comment.
    Similar funding ratios have been found to be the norm with the Lutheran effort.

    The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service reported total income of
    $41.7 million in 2012, and government grants accounted for $40.4
    million, or 96.8 percent of that amount, according to the nonprofit’s
    most recently reported Form 990, a disclosure that nonprofits must file with
    the Internal Revenue Service. The group raised only $1.3 million from
    private donors. http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/religious-charities-profit-from-open-borders/#QM4U0D8My8VhmD5l.99

    Seems to me the Charities have a vested interest in the border crisis being bad and expanding. All in the name of Christ mind you.

    2 Chronicles 7:14
    14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.God appeared to Solomon that very night and said, “I accept your prayer; yes, I have chosen this place as a temple
    for sacrifice, a house of worship. If I ever shut off the supply of rain from the skies or order the locusts to eat the crops or send a plague on my people, and my people, my God-defined people, respond by humbling themselves, praying, seeking my presence, and turning their backs on their wicked lives, I’ll be there ready for you: I’ll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health. From now on I’m alert day and night to the prayers offered at this place. Believe me, I’ve chosen and sanctified this Temple that you have built: My Name is stamped on it forever; my eyes are on it and my heart in it always. As for you, if you live in my presence as your father David lived, pure in heart and action, living the life I’ve set out for you, attentively obedient to my guidance and judgments, then I’ll back your kingly rule over Israel—make it a sure thing on a sure foundation. The same covenant guarantee I gave to David your father I’m giving to you, namely, ‘You can count on always having a descendant on Israel’s throne.’

    The entire Bible is God’s word. It is all God inspired. The word was made flesh and dwelt among us. Ergo Jesus speaks through the Apostles and in this case Paul. The passage can have dual meanings which it does. If God could labor 6 days creating the Universe and resting on the 7th, man is not above the Master. If you can’t hear on an empty stomach then you probably better get off your butt and go to work. “He that will not work, neither shall he eat”. Plain and simple. These people invading our country are stealing from us. That is a sin. If crossing Mexico was so bad, they should have stayed where they were. I’m sick of the people using excuses in order to steal what they have not labored for. Our country is broke and we can’t afford to feed the world.

    I have always wondered why the people who are elevated are the ones who were always messed up at least at some point in life.

    Glenn did the right thing. He did what Jesus taught to do. Even though it is not popular, even among some fair-weather christians who hold tight to their pocketbooks, Jesus did say to feed the poor, help people, to loan to those who ask to borrow, to turn the other cheek, to love your enemies, to show mercy to others, to not judge them for why they are poor, etc., and he talked of helping the poor, and especially children.
    Cynicism does not excuse one from the truth. Crying out cynical thoughts and expressions towards those who did good, does not make it right. Its just cynicism, something very prevalent in many of these comments. Coming from a heartless perspective.

    Jesus said let your light so shine, that others may see your good works, and glorify Father in Heaven. Question is, how can you do good works in secret? Someone has to be there to hand out the food and the blankets, etc. How can you do this in secret, and still let your light shine? Fact is, when you do good works, Jesus just wanted you to be sure that you do these good works for the right reasons, but he did instruct us to LET our light SHINE. You don’t do that under a bushel, or by keeping all cameras recording the events at home, and not mention a thing about it. Because Glenn and team did let their lights shine on this crisis, many of us are talking about it, and all of this is good good good for the County. We are also witnessing a weeding out process by which people can come to grips with whether they really are a christian or not, or just in name only, lip service. etc.

  • machupicchushow

    I think you do have to do more. We all do. There is much work to do to reform the broken system which is immigration. Millions are trying to get in to AMERICA, a good thing, and we have a system that won’t let them in. So they take door number two out of desperation. America can do better… and it won’t cost us money if we fix the welfare state as well.

    Like I said, America has work to do to fix the system from abuse. Start voting better, America. And if the majority chooses socialism in the mean time, that is no excuse for Christians to hunker down and sit on their wallets… because that doesn’t jibe with what Jesus taught to do. Christians are going to have to come to grips on what is more important to them… their riches, or their salvation.

  • machupicchushow

    Think it through. The liberal mindset in government is having success BECAUSE the Christians in the USA have not done enough. They have not contributed to their churches enough. They have not helped the poor enough. They have let the poor go instead, to the local county welfare offices to get government assistance, because they would rather NOT have to open up their own personal wallets, fearing some financial strain on their personal lives, and so they have largely ignored the problem and let the poor go to the welfare departments instead.

    This is the truth. In an ideal world, the churches would do ALL of the help, it would be fair, there would be bishops and pastors involved in helping people get on their feet again, and there would be no persistent welfare except in extreme cases where it was actually justified such as a crippled person or a widow, or fatherless, etc. You know, TRUE PURE RELIGION as described in the Book of James, NT

  • machupicchushow

    Bless your heart, it is good to read someone saying something nice in contrast to much of this very evil talk, condemning people for trying to do good, and trying so hard to make it so… but the scriptures condemn their talk, for it can not be supported in the teachings of Jesus Christ.

  • machupicchushow

    Yes, I think that is one of the most important outcomes of this event, is the shedding of light onto a travesty in the southern borders of this land. At least Glenn Beck had the courage to do this, and now many people are talking about what it going on down there, when the MSM would not cover it, and Obama was ignoring it, only asking for billions, which were not needed. Glenn has done a host of good here, and built good will, with the exception of the hateful EX fans. Good bye to them, really.

  • machupicchushow

    I’m sorry. Jesus did NOT teach the “tough love” you are preaching. That’s just the opposite of what He preached. Like this woman said, he fed 5000. He forgave the adulteress, while all around her there were many ready to stone her, judge her, and when they disappeared, Jesus said “where are thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee? No man, Lord. Neither do I condemn thee. Go and sin no more.”

    And that was that.

    But many here and elsewhere are condemning these so-called illegal poor people. They are condemning them as illegals without any thought as to their NEED in life. They have really taken the heartless position. And the Sermon on the Mount is clear with teachings about MERCY, LOVE enemies, To him that would borrow, turn thou NOT away… etc.

    You have to give to be a true Christian… and you have to give more than you want to. Jesus would have you give ALL if you would be perfect.

  • machupicchushow

    There are modern apostles who disagree with you. You can misinterpret Paul to your peril, but the teachings of Christ are much more clear anyway. There is NO ROOM for misinterpreting Jesus Christ. No room. Why not start with Jesus Christ. That’s Paul’s boss btw.

    Some laws in the USA are unjust. Like Abortion laws. Do you have as much respect for the abortion laws i.e. Roe vs. Wade? What do you think God thinks of such laws that make it legal to kill the unborn babies who would otherwise survive?

    Are you consistent in your defense of ALL laws?

    I am not a believer that all of these laws are just, and some of them are WICKED, such as redefining marriage as anyone who wants, regardless of gender, despite how CLEAR the Bible is on this. I think you are wrong on the border law. Its unjust because it doesn’t address the very real plight of these people who want a better life, but can’t get it through the micro-channel which is the legal border.

    if we the people want the corrupt government to do less and follow the constitution and laws, we must stand up and force them. they will not listen to anything else. nothing wrong with charity, but it won’t stop the corruption. when the government fears the people we have freedom, when the people fear the government we have tyranny. we don’t need to use violence to put the fear of we the people back into the government, but we do have to use a show of force.

    Without the government doing charity, this is exactly what would happen, because Christians would be forced by their fealty to Christ to do it. Then their light would shine forth.

    Then the jealous pagans (leftists, communists, etc) would have to shut down that light by instituting governments to do the charity work, supplanting Christian charity for their own nefarious purposes.

    Big circle.

    First all, I have no problem with volunteer giving and caring for God’s creation. I get angry by People who use that giving to puff up their ego or use them as props. Give in secret as God says. Otherwise you have your reward when you do your deeds before men where they can see it. Jesus even forgives me the chief of sinners and so I don’t know where you come up with this “tough” love. God forgives and we can do nothing to ever, ever earn it. He did it all. Even my faith is a gift of his to me lest any man should boast. But there is no virtue in being poor just as their is no inherent sin in being rich. I believe in mercy but I do not enable people in their law breaking. Until their is repentance and sorrow for our sins, we are not truly right in confessing our sins. These illegals seem to show no remorse for their deeds, in fact they seem to feel entitled to break the law. No, I will not enable that.

  • landofaahs

    Where did I say anything to misinterpret Paul? Jesus himself blinded Paul and chose him to preach to the gentiles. Jesus chose Paul to spread his message and it’s clear what he meant. He meant for us to all work. Paul even worked and made his own living by making tents. He was entitled to the labor in God’s vineyard but he chose not to take advantage of that so that he would not be blamed for enriching himself and for the sake of the spread of the gospel. Since Jesus chose Paul I would only add that God said “If they do not believe in the prophets they will not believe him who sent them. You are the one who misinterprets Jesus, not me. Jesus even said cast not ye pearls before swine. Did you ever consider that Jesus walked past people who were gentiles because yet he did on occasion heal them. He clearly said that his mission was to speak and preach to the children of Israel.

    As a conservative Evangelical, I am ashamed to say that the average Evangelical gives only about 2%of his income to his church. Out of that 2% the church must pay for maintenance and repair of the property, salaries of clergy, etc. If there is anything left, the crumbs may be used toward meeting the needs of, first, their own flock, then the needs of those on the outside.

    Here’s the great tragedy in all of this: study after study has shown that when a dollar comes out of a person’s pocket to help the needy, if the dollar is taken for welfare programs by the government, only about 33¢ of that dollar actually reaches the family in need. The rest (66¢) is consumed in paying the costs of collecting, administering, regulating, disbursing,, etc When that dollar goes to organizations such as United Way, the numbers are reversed: 66¢ reaches the needy and 33¢ goes to overhead. But when that same dollar is given to most religious institutions, and designated for helping the needy, better than 98% of that dollar actually reaches that needy family.

    Beyond that, governments are rigidly constricted by their rules and regulations as to what they can do. Private organizations have far, far greater flexibility to meet needs in the most optimal way. Government “help” is–must be– impersonal. Help from each of us, individually and together in our private groups, churches, etc., can be very personal and caring, far more effective (because it is tailored to the need), and far more economical.

    A few years ago the figures came out: 72% of the 6 trillion dollars or so allocated by our esteemed bushwhackers in Congress for Welfare went to the bureaucrats and social workers; that left 28 cents of every dollar ripped off a taxpayer to go to the so-called poor.

    Government welfare is nothing more than jobs programs for people (democrats) who took the easy courses in college.

    Actually, you could say both of us are incorrect. Since Paul was speaking and it is part of scripture, we know that all scripture is God breathed and that of God the Holy Spirit, but then again Jesus is the word and was made flesh and dwelt among us. There arte no modern day apostles. You are incorrect and misguided. To be an apostle you had to be a witness to the resurrected Christ. Now Paul was a witness to Christ’s resurrection because he saw Jesus and was then blinded and Jesus spoke to him post resurrection. Your supposed apostles must be from the heretical Mormon sect.

    Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
    Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

    “Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”

    Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality
    Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

    Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his or her work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief…..

    The penalty for felony harboring is a fine and imprisonment for up to five years. The penalty for felony alien smuggling is a fine and up to ten years’ imprisonment. Where the crime causes serious bodily injury or places the life of any person
    in jeopardy, the penalty is a fine and up to twenty years’ imprisonment. If the criminal smuggling or harboring results in the death of any person, the penalty can include life imprisonment. Convictions for aiding, abetting, or conspiracy to commit alien smuggling or harboring, carry the same penalties. Courts can impose consecutive prison sentences for each alien smuggled or harbored. A court
    may order a convicted smuggler to pay restitution if the alien smuggled qualifies as a victim under the Victim and Witness Protection Act. Conspiracy to commit crimes of sheltering, harboring, or employing illegal aliens is a separate federal offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or five years’ imprisonment.

    I will reiterate the penalties so that Mr Beck would be felonious sycophant followers may understand the gravity of committing the above crime that Mr. Beck is conspiring to commit, which has further implication to him specifically, by posting them LARGE.
