UPDATED: ‘It is a horrifying place to be’: Glenn reflects on his visit to the Rio Grande River with Louie Gohmert

Update: On Glenn’s TV show Monday night, he played video from his visit with Rep. Gohmert:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Original Story:

Before the sun had even risen on Saturday, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took Glenn to the border in McAllen, Texas. Met by a pungent stench and piles of discarded clothing and personal items, Glenn toured the scorpions and rattlesnake-ridden bank of the Rio Grande River. It took just a few moments for Glenn to realize anyone – politician or otherwise – claiming the border is secure is telling “the biggest lie.” On radio this morning, Glenn recounted the life changing impact of this 4am trip.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue and some pictures from the border:

It was a powerful weekend for those of us here at Mercury and those who volunteered their time and went down to the border. We went down with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). It was pretty shocking. And I want to take you through a few things.

I want to take you through, first, what we did when we first got there at 4 o’clock in the morning. We went to the border. Anything about anybody telling you that the border is secure is the biggest lie you’ve ever heard in your life. It is so far out of control. It’s incomprehensible.

Two hours before we got there, there were .50 caliber machine gun rounds were lobbed on to the American side by the drug cartels. .50 caliber machine gun. I don’t know. Does that sound like a secure border? The reason why that was happening is they were laying down suppressing fire while they smuggled illegals in. And I want to ask you one question that I think will change your view of what’s happening on the border.

Right now we all think about is what’s happening with these illegals coming across and swimming across the Rio Grande. And we think about these people who have traveled 30 days on foot. And then they pay $7,000 for a family to go across the Rio Grande. Have we thought about that $7,000 and where that $7,000 is going? The things that our government is now encouraging through their lack of enforcement is reprehensible. So these families go across the river. How do they afford $7,000? They can’t. So then how do they get across? They pay the drug lords $3,000 and the drug lords say, ‘Don’t worry about it. You know what? You just get over and then we’ll work it out.’ Now, what does that mean? I mean, it is Al Capone stuff. You owe us a favor, and so I’m going to call on you and you’re going to do these things or I’ll kill your whole family. Or they come in and they are doing the drug lords’ business here in the United States. Those are two options. I’m sure there are more. But those are two options.

So how do we stop this? Well, we have to be clear on the border. We have to be clear that you don’t stay here. But that’s not happening anytime soon. Nobody in Washington has any interest. I shouldn’t say nobody. The guys I was with, they have interest. But very few people have interest in actually stopping this, because there’s a lot of money to be made. And there’s a lot of political votes to be had before you just stop what’s going on.

Here’s the question that I asked. I haven’t received an answer on this. We were driving underneath the International Bridge at 4 o’clock in the morning. We are in the woods. We’re right at the river. We are looking over the river to Mexico. We’re hearing the sounds of coyotes and chickens. I mean actual coyotes, not human coyotes, and chickens in the morning. We’re hearing the wild dogs running through this area. It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s 4am. We’re seeing the rafts. We’re seeing the little teeny children’s life jackets that have been discarded all over, piles of them, all over the border. One of them had a scorpion on top of it. There are tarantulas and rattlesnakes. We were told, ‘Make sure you’re wearing boots. Make sure you wear long sleeves and you button up your collars.’ It’s horrible. It is a horrifying place to be.

The border guards have to go and clean this area up all the time. They haven’t had the time to go pick up the sacks of clothes that have been left by them after they cleaned it up. It is a mess. As we’re in this area, there is this mile-long international bridge. And it goes from the Mexican side to the American side. And at the end of this bridge is the I.N.S., the border security. Now, we have been told the whole time, ‘All you have to do is come over and turn yourself in. They are seeking out our border patrol.’ Now, two hours before we got to the border, at 2:00am or midnight, somewhere in this area, there was suppressing fire fired into the American side with .50 caliber machine gun. Now, why is that happening? Hang on. Come back to the bridge for a second. They’re smuggling people across the water, and those people are looking for the border patrol to turn themselves in and say, ‘I’m here because I’m escaping oppression.’ That’s what we’re told, right?

1407016_01_123Photo Credit: George Lange/Lange Studio 

Why are they going across the river when there’s a bridge right there that is free? You don’t have to pay anybody to smuggle you across the bridge, all you have to do is take your family and walk across the bridge and go to the same exact people and say, ‘I’m escaping oppression. I need help.’ And they let you in. Why are they coming across the river? They’re coming across the river because the drug cartels benefit from it. The drug cartels will never hear any message except the message from the government of the United States of America. I said, ‘How can we tell the people to stop?’ And the border patrol laughed at me. You’re not going to be able to. ‘Do you have the resources that the United States government or the drug cartels have?’ Well, of course not. You’re not going to be able to beat the drug cartels with a message. The message the drug cartels want is, ‘Come to us. We will get you across.’ They’re making money on this.

More importantly, why are they hitting us with .50 caliber machine gun rounds? Why are they doing it? Why are they on boats? They’ll take the weakest swimmer, the one who cannot swim, and when they’re coming across the boat with all of these people who paid them, they take the weakest swimmer and throw them out of the boat. They do it so the border agents have to swarm. They only throw that person down into the river so they’ll die, so the border patrol – out of compassion – have to come. But then they have their people on the other side. It’s called rocking. And what they do is they stand around with stones. And they start pelting our border agents with stones as they’re trying to save that individual. They’re trying to drive all the border patrol into that one area – misdirection – so people elsewhere can smuggle God only knows what across our border.

So if you don’t care about the border because of the people coming across, somebody on the left has got to care about the border because of what else is coming across. And if you don’t care about securing our border, let me tell you two stories. Let me tell you about the 15-year-old boy that was found on the shores of the Rio Grande. The 15-year-old boy that was found dumped on the side of the river. Our side. Where was his parents? I don’t know. Where was his family? I don’t know. How did he get across? I don’t know. He was strapped to a wheelchair, and he’s a quadriplegic. He couldn’t move anything but his head. Luckily, the border patrol found him, dumped off on the American side of the river. Everybody else had left. But the cartels or smugglers completed their contract. They dumped him and his wheelchair face down on the side of the river. The kid would have died had it not been for the border patrol that actually found him. It was 110 heat index when we were there. It’s one of the hottest places I’ve ever been. You don’t have water. You die.

Ask yourself: Why aren’t people just coming over the bridge? Once you answer that question, you realize what’s really going on. I’m going to give you another question: Why is it the president of the United States wants you to know there’s a humanitarian crisis? He’s the first one to declare it. ‘There’s a humanitarian crisis on the border.’ Correct? We’ve all heard that. We’ve all heard the left making a very big deal out of it. Why is it no one in the press is allowed to see it? It has been something that has bothered me until I went down.

    Here’s how you fix it. You get a President of the United States with some guts to do his job and protect the United States. DRONE THE DRUG CARTELS’ COMPOUNDS after telling the Presidents of Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras that if they don’t do the job in 10 days, we will. Then we tell them that they will not get one more dime of foreign aid if ANY of their people come over the border. Secure the border and then deal with the illegals. Turn off the faucet before you start to fix the broken water pipe, any householder knows that.

    obama won’t even go to see the border chaos he caused . . . he would be forced to admit he is lying about how secure our border is . . . and then forced to do something about it. AND OBAMA DOESN’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

    You’re not going to get the people saying this border relief trip was a bad idea to change their hearts until you start showing pictures of the refugees looking like people THINK refugees should look. Never mind if that look is true or not. When hate runs deep the only thing to do is shock them out of their beliefs. It’s sad that loads of people hate the idea of charity work except for the groups of people they themselves would give charity to and even sadder that they are fair-weather fans who think they have the right to tel you what to say or do. To the people who hate it’s all about them not about the relief work. They must feel like they are entitled or something.

  • MrPuzzleBox

    Watching this I experience several feelings. What is obvious is that the policies of the current administration set the stage for this to occur. Secondly, a large propaganda campaign took root out of those same policies to entice this flood of aliens to come to the border. DC is culpable for this – although nobody will ever likely be held accountable in this lifetime. However, as Christians we need to be aware of (2) principles: 1) The wicked are eventually ensnared in their own devices (Proverbs). 2) Romans 8:28 assures us that God has a way of turning around situations originally intended for evil – & using them for good WHEN people act in faith & love regarding those situations. So, Ecclesia: Help the immigrants. Many are victims too. And leave it to God to move the proverbial chess pieces on the board of causality so that evil is thwarted & those accountable are eventually judged. Good day.

    You missed the copperheads that inhabit the area along w/the rattlers. Of course, copperheads are not as aggressive as rattlers, so they may have been there but unnoticed.

    Tarantulas are not that bad — just ugly. The scorpions can give you a nasty sting as can the brown recluse spiders we have here.

    You are near the desert where everything is either poisonous or prickly or parched. And, yes, Saturday was particularly humid and hot.

    “FoxNews.com accompanied Texas lawmaker Louie Gohmert, a former judge and current Republican Congressman, to the site in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday. Gohmert, whose district lies some 550 miles northeast of what has become the most heavily-trafficked people-smuggling route in the world, has been to the location many times, but has never seen it so understaffed and overwhelmed.

    ““I’m more concerned than ever [that the border is] so seriously undermanned and I’ll be raising hell in Washington,” Gohmert, who invited FoxNews.com to see the situation first-hand, would later tell Border Patrol officials.

    “The Border Patrol agents loaded and unloaded their vehicles packed with the newly-arrived illegal immigrants — including women pregnant or nursing infants, and small, unaccompanied children — throughout the evening and early morning hours. At first, they were mostly teenagers, ages 14 to 17, arriving with their mother or brothers or no one at all. Then came the pregnant women. A mother nursing her infant. A small girl with wide
    eyes clutching a doll.

    “A total of 72 came in during the first dark hours of Saturday morning. A third were unaccompanied children.

    “The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called “coyotes,” the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol.Many don’t make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.”

    Glenn will tell the absolute truth about the border situation. It is the evil drug cartels coupled with an evil administration that are abusing these poor, dirty, hungry, abandoned children. The most humane thing to do is get them back to their parents as soon as possible. Putting them on a “bus to nowhere” to some American city is pure child abuse. Meanwhile, the border patrol is being humiliated and endangered. But Obama couldn’t go there to see this??? What a cold, despicable man!

  • Elena

    It is. All along the way fm the river to Houston is a disaster zone of discarded clothes and trash left by illegals. It’s full of broken fences and messed up wells, too. The same is true along the Arizona border.

    The enviro-whackos are more interested in keeping the LEOs out of animal and plant refuges, left open to illegals, than they are abt cleaning up the mess left by illegals.

    If you are afraid of the children voting Democrat, then why don’t you adopt them. Then you can poison them with your sugar, your GMO corn, your mercury laced vaccines, your bigotry, your attitude, your complete lack of morals & your misogamy. You can make them Republicians just like you & your god. If you want to stop the Cartels, then why don’t you offer the same products that they do in your pharmacies. Wouldn’t you prefer giving your children organic drugs instead of the current GMO based, Oil based, mercury laced, sometimes containing glass, shipped from China chemicals you are currently giving them? Autism & Cancer anyone?

    This was all done by design. He doesn’t care about the children. If he cared he would be at the border. But I digress. This joke of a commander in chief is a meat puppet for the radical progressive/communist left who wants absolute power. Free your mind is right. That’s what any common sense American loving person would do. You have to enforce the laws on the books, secure the border, round up ALL THE ILLEGALS and send them back. Stop the bleeding before you operate. Freedom is never free.

  • Arizona Don

    It should go without saying this border crap has to stop. However, it seems this administration is encouraging it. These children and even the adults are being used by this administration for their own purposes. Many will die but that makes no difference to obama. If it did and he understood what is going on would he not do everything within his power to stop it? Would he not want the border closed?

    Folks near the border from Arizona and Texas know what is going on. Glenn is correct without water you will die especially in the summertime. In Arizona it is impossible to carry enough water in the heat of the day to survive any long walk and it is a very long walk. The Texas heat although not quite as bad is also a killer for the inexperienced.

    The people who live in the north, northeast and east don’t know and can’t even visualize what is going on down here and how bad it really is (or can be). We have rattlers here in Arizona but Texas has us beat on the rattle snake danger. Especially at or near the river. Some of the biggest desert rattlers I have ever seen were in Texas. And there are some sidewinders as well. However, here in Arizona along with those we also have Mojave’s said to be the most dangerous and a killer and it gets at or over 6 ft long. I have seen and killed them over 7 ft. Children do not normally survive their bites without immediate professional attention and anti-venom. Even then sometimes it is not successful. The desert although beautiful is dangerous and can be for the inexperienced a killer itself “without” any of the snakes or other dessert creatures. To say the least this border country is (can be) unforgiving to the novice.

    For most people here hate has nothing to do with it. I think most people here are in favor of feeding them, getting them cleaned up, and then sending them back home. What’s wrong with that? And, have you given any thought to just how many of those unaccompanied women and children are coming here to meet up with their husband/dad who has been in this country illegally for sometime now and sending money home?

    My suggestion ..when it comes time to vote, we the people are the ones that decide who is going to run the white house and all in it… if any of the candidates have the word encombent next to their name ( it means re-elect me cause im doing a great job ) educate yourselves and do a little research on what each candidate stands for.. before you place your X by their name… this way we can over come the weakness, and instablity, and the direction this fool and his cronies are directing our beautiful AMERICA…. stand together , spread the word,there are so many people that are not paying attention to what the gov is doing, and they also want to support HILLARY which will bring on more of the same, and continuing lies and deseption, more of what we are getting shoved down our throats, enough already.. if we get some changes we can go after all that the strength of the Americans that have fought for and died for, for our country. why have we given up on ourselves ? where are the true AMERICANS? they cant all be in their graves can they ? the tea party group are the true Americans because they still believe we are a great country. Please we cannot stop this, and all the other problems that the occupant of the W/H is creating without doing something……ONE GOOD THING MIGHT BE..ARREST FOR HIGH TREASON AND PUT IN JAIL…for starters…

    Come September these illegal children coming over the border will be in the classrooms across America. PLEASE have your children vaccinated for SMALL POX (need to request, no longer a required vaccination) and HEPATITUS. Get a TB test. Make sure all of their BOOSTER SHOTS (including polio, chicken pox, measles, whooping cough, etc.) are up to date. It only takes one sick illegal child in a classroom to make entire schools/families sick. The Dept. of Health and Human Services is suppose to vaccinate all of the illegal children crossing the border. But, will they? Even if they do, vaccinating will be of no use if an illegal child is already sick.

    The reason Glenn Beck and other news media did not see illegals coming across along the border in McAllen is because the government knew well in advance the media were coming. The borders were sanitized! The legislatures (both parties) did not want their constituents to see the illegals coming across along the border because it would generate more unwanted negative publicity. Instead, they made sure the news media saw illegals crossing at official sites. Obama’s hands are dirty too. He didn’t want to be bothered with the matter; he went on vacation. Between the people’s outrage at the illegals crossing the border and fund raising, he must be exhausted.

    I hope Glenn took any supplies [he brought to McAllen] to outreach kitchens and churches in and around the area. They need relief! After all, they are using their resources to feed the illegals. You can bet our government isn’t handing them checks on the spot. The agencies giving their time and resources will have to wait for reimbursement. I wonder how many “legal citizens” have been turned away from outreach organizations and churches since the illegals started their invasion in 2013. The situation is bleeding dry everyone who is helping stem the tide.

    You are correct the United States of America is the most compassionate nation on earth. I like most others do not wish any illegal’s here but sending children back without at least attending to their physical and medical needs first would be inhumane at best. Adults are a different story altogether. They are responsible for their own actions children are not. The children are being used by the illegal’s as well as the president. However, if this continues to extremes it may be necessary to ignore them as well. The question becomes when do we reach our limit because nothing is unlimited even in America. I suggest that is exactly what obama is counting on!

    Not true the border was never secure under Bush either. It was becoming more secure when the fence was being built but keep in mind Bush was reluctant to build the fence and secure the border as well. He and John McCain supported comprehensive immigration reform BEFORE securing the border. Or perhaps you have forgotten. None of the last four presidents did anything to close the border. Bush 41 did not because he was/is a firm supporter of the NWO. The law was passed during the Reagan administration first to secure it but Reagan failed to follow up on it and it was never funded. So he dropped the ball as well. He made a statement after he was out of office that that was his biggest regret. Not seeing to it the border was closed.

    Ch 4 and other local media followed the three (Beck, Cruz, Gohmert):

    Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck joined Senator Ted Cruz along the border amid the immigration crisis bringing soccer balls and teddy bears in a tractor trailer.

    Beck first announced he would be in the Rio Grande Valley on The Blaze, founded by the conservative talk show host.

    “I’ve never taken a position more deadly to my career than this, and I have never ever taken a position that is more right than this,” he said on The Glenn Beck Program before announcing he would make his way down to the Texas-Mexico border.

    Beck arrived along with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) as they headed out along the border before sunrise, according to The Blaze.

    “Operation BBQ Relief” started early Saturday morning, and Beck joined volunteers as he cooked barbeque.

    Beck, joined by Cruz, toured the Sacred Heart Church in McAllen where unaccompanied minors are able to shower, receive a change of clothes and rest before heading to their destinations throughout the US.

    Beck announced earlier this month that he would bring hot meals for 3,000, water, teddy bears and soccer balls to the Rio Grande Valley.

    “We must open our heart,” Beck announced.

    “Beck has consistently maintained that everyone who is in the United States illegally must be sent back to their home countries,” according to The Blaze.

How is it that any American, or the so-called media OK with the fact that we are not allowed to see!!! And our impudent congress obeying orders from brown-shirts to keep out! WTH!

    Ask where the money comes from Glenn. No one does that. It is coming from the illegals here in the U.S. They are sending money home to finance more illegal immigration. Which is against the law. Another law the government is not enforcing. Which means our government is encouraging illegal immigration.

  • Anonymous

    Lisa,
    I don’t believe it’s anywhere NEAR 20%, do you? I don’t believe ANYTHING out of the media & ABSOLUTELY NOTHING out of this administration!

    If I had been OK Rep. Jim Bridenstine, when they told him he couldn’t go into Fort Sill (I think) & said he’d have to wait 12 days, that would’ve given me all the more cause to go immediately to see what they were trying to hide! After watching him on Huckabee this weekend, I think he was “hoodwinked”! I think it was “staged” before he & his people got there! I’ve NEVER been a “conspiracy theorist”, but like I said: I don’t trust this administration as far as I can throw them!

I’m aggravated at him about several things but he’s human & none of us are perfect. As far as being mad at HIM for your comments being deleted, unless you posted 2 others, I don’t think they’ve been deleted & Glenn certainly doesn’t monitor this site! Have a nice evening!

    We have a chance, in November, to remove this radical Marxist government from office. But already we have, for the most part, voted for the same RINOs in the Primaries. And they want to play “politics as usual” with the Democrats. So unless we get most of the Democrats out of office this year and replace them with Conservatives of SOME other party, the situation is not going to change.

    If the husbands here already have been sending money home then of course they should be reunited with their families. In fact, it should be an easier thing for the kids not to be caught up in the system since they have family who can find them.

So why do we have a Marine in the prison system? Laredo is a big welfare city and it can be proven by driving by the Welfare office there and see that 95% of the vehicles in the parking lot have Mexican plates on them, They give food stamps and welfare checks by the fistful in that town and now were being flooded by disease infested kids.

    Oh yeah, if Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras don’t do the job in 10 days you will? If you “United States” would STOP SUPLLYING WEAPONS to the drug cartels thanks to your gun selling laws then we the people from Central America wouldn’t have to fight them outgunned. If you “United States” would STOP CONSUMMING then there wouldn’t be a market from which the drug cartels would benefit. It was the president of Guatemala who proposed to LEGALIZE drugs and tax them the same way you did with alcoholic beverages seeking to end the drug lords power and cash influx, and instead get tax money for ill people who are drugging themselves already and will continue to do so. It was the USA who rejected the proposal and instead wants to continue this loss fight doing the same thing it has been doing for over 40 years. There’s a REAL WAR against drug lords in Guatemala and the rest of Central America, our homicide rate is way higher than that of the US -and the US has one of the highest- and we owe it all to you, the USA. So stop saying you will do the job, you haven’t been able to do it in 40 years and you won’t be able to do it if you continue making the same mistakes. Glenn Beck should COME TO GUATEMALA and the rest of the region to see what the situation really is. But he won’t, that would obviously destroy his americanized point of view about this subject.

  • Sven Sanchez

    Change YOUR gun control laws and the drug cartel’s power will be HIGHLY diminished. Drugs are sumggeled up to the US and weapons are smuggled down to Central America. These guns don’t only kill central american citizens in the LOST bloody war on drugs we have on our soils. These guns also kill your own citizens and security officers.

    Better yet, LEGALIZE drugs the same way you did with alcoholic beverages in the 1930s and you remove all their power. HEAVILY TAX drugs so that funds are available to treat addicts. No more guns, no more deaths from drug-related violence, same addicts, no more funds needed to fight this lost war but many funds available to treat addicts.

    Keep doing the same mistakes and you will get the same results. Maybe I’m wrong, but I think Obama tried to make gun control laws strictier and republicans opposed it.

  • Sven Sanchez

    Mexican military equipment inside your border? What about the THOUSANDS of american guns and even RPGs the cartels are using on OUR central american soil because YOU allow them to smuggle weapons to the south? Facilitating guns to our ennemies should be considered an ACT OF WAR. We are supposed to be allies but you let drug cartels arm themselves to the teeth. Why? There’s obviously very powerful people making huge amounts of money with all the weapons sales.

  • Sven Sanchez

    Not going to deport illegal aliens? You are now deporting little children!

    You would like them to be repatriated! …. GlennBeck want them repatriated… ! Jesus tells us to welcome the “sojourner”…The naivety here is astounding … the churches are receiving millions upon millions of our tax dollars to feed and process these people and send them all over the country… the gov’t PLANNED this invasion… the churches were in on it… the vast majority WILL NEVER be sent back. And lets not forget the BILLIONS these countries get from us through foreign aid ,,, with NO accountability. They will just continue sucking up all our “free” services as planned. This was a nefarious planned attack on our country (HOUSE) by our government, and in collusion with the church… giving people like Beck the opportunity to trash those of us who he thinks are not good Christians. It is people like Beck who attempt to shame and scold Americans by hiding behind Jesus… that’s much easier than admitting the church’s role in the deconstruction of America. We have no jobs here… the national debt is a disaster… cities all over this nation are crumbling under debt…our schools SUCK … the middle class is becoming extinct… we KILL millions of our own through abortion… and you will continue to believe you’re doing the Lord’s work… https://taggs.hhs.gov/RecipInfo.cfm?SELEIN=LCYqWys%2FPEpMQTxHXVM6OEgK

  • Nanette Gray

    Not all in DC are “letting” him. The Hose has tried along with the senate republicans. Harry Reid is the majority leader and has 1000 bills sitting on his desk. He as not let many issues even to come to the floor to be discussed. The House only has 1/3 of the power. It is the House that has gotten the congressional hearings and investigations in place. IF you have ever watched these hearings, you would vomit because the democrats on these investigations are just obstructing justice. I wach and thought, I wish Americans would watch these hearings..they would not vote democrat at all.

  • Tom Angle

    Has the House passed financial bills that allow him to do what he is doing? Have investigated him for arming terrorist forces in places such as Libya and Syria? Have they done anything to stop him from appointing muslim brotherhood connected people in the government? Have they arrested those that are impeding in their investigations? Have they done their duty and impeached him? I could go on, but the House has a lot of power. The biggest one is investigations. They can arrest those that do not comply with their investigations. It is all a dog and pony show.

    I did NOT give any weapons to the Cartels! You said “YOU”, and I have not done any such thing. Nor would I ever knowingly allow such a thing. I have also never heard of such a thing until your solitary post alleging that the US has supplied arms to the Cartels. I could see the black market selling guns/weapons to the cartels, but I highly doubt that the open ‘legal’ weapons market would be selling guns to the cartels when it is an illegal act.

    You have to back up your assertion with documentation. There are countless reports on the internet that back up my statement that the Mexican military is invading the US on a regular basis. Whether they are doing it to help facilitate an incursion by the Cartels drug or human trafficking I cannot say for sure, but there is plenty of video and first-hand accounts of the Mexican Military entering US Soil with personnel, weapons, and hardware…

  • Nanette Gray

    This administration has “handlers”, the man in the oval office is a puppet and actor. The bigger goal is to make us into a region, North American Region. The plan is a “One Word Order”, yes, it is a fact. Yes, the goal is to destroy our constitution and our laws to get rid of our sovereignty as a Nation. The region would include, Canada, America,Mexico and the countries south of Mexico.

  • NealGraham

    We cannot legally have US Military on the border due to Posse Comitatus(sic?). The National Guard however CAN be called upon by the individual Governors as Governor Perry just did, to beef up the presence on the border. Unless the law is changed, or until the law is changed – we have to rely on the National Guard to reinforce the ICE personnel on the border.

    The real problem is that the ICE personnel do not have full Military weaponry, to be able to adequately defend against the incursions on US soil. If we station something on the order of 20,000 National Guard and Air National Guard personnel ON the border from coast to coast, we might then have adequate personnel to prevent the ongoing human and drug trafficking…

  • Nanette Gray

    YOU are incorrect> You need to read and look up the truth. In 2006 Bush had many extra border National Guards there and the border was much more controlled. The Dream act by this administration was proposed and signed in 2008 by this administration and a majority House and Senate by democrats. He also took weapons away from those that patrol our borders. So, are you one of those that this administration calls their followers, “useful idiots” ? THINK..Fast and Furious, do you have any thought in your head. We are still getting guns from the Fast and Furious fiasco from the administration in 2009.

  • NealGraham

    NO, the border has NEVER been secure. Period! Unless/Until we have a border that is entirely FENCED and PATROLLED 24/7 with military weaponry so the ICE personnel can properly repel any invasion/incursion into US soil, we will NEVER stem the tide of illegal immigrants, illegal drugs, illegal weapons, etc coming into the USA…

  • NealGraham

    Absolutely EVERY person, regardless of age, that enters the US illegally should be IMMEDIATELY returned to their home country! NO exceptions, other than those who are in need of IMMEDIATE life-saving medical care. Once they have been treated and returned to health, they too would be returned to their home country.

  • Nanette Gray

    Making more restrictive gun control laws will ONLY enable the CRIMINALS to have a much easier time of transporting guns, drugs, people, whatever into and out of the USA.

    Sven – you have many valid points. We don’t agree on legalization, but you’re correct, the US has a drug user problem it refuses to address. Going after drug lords is nearly futile. When you capture or kill one, 25 more are waiting to take his place. Why the US sold weapons knowing full well they would end up in drug cartel hands is beyond stupid. I don’t really care who started it, it’s always the current administration who has the power to stop it, but simply will not, because of politics. It’s always about politics.

  • NealGraham

    He is helping the CHURCHES and other support organizations that do HUMANITARIAN work. He is NOT doing things that will cause more to come here, and is very adamant about only those who come here LEGALLY Should be able to stay here. You need to LISTEN to what he is saying, and WHY he is doing what he did. He encouraged people to donate to Mercury One for the sole purpose of helping the churches and such to be able to have what THEY need to do the “right thing” to provide basic humanitarian aid to those children illegally here while the federal government screws around – instead of acting decisively to return all illegals to their home country…

    Glenn Beck is not perfect, no human ever has been nor will be. But I believe his heart is in the right place, and that the money he raised on behalf of the churches/etc in Texas and elsewhere had asked them to provide through Mercury One was done for the right reasons as well. Time will tell, but think of this: How would we feel, if thousands of these illegal immigrant children that were sent to the US by their parents via “Coyotes” – DIED in our custody because the organizations such as churches that are there to help those most in need, were UNABLE to help??? Or would we rather HELP those in that situation, and then work with our congress and other elected officials to get them to do the RIGHT thing and DEPORT every single one of these children IMMEDIATELY. But the system is currently pretty well BROKEN, thanks to the meddling of various presidents AND due to the words that Obama has spoken and the INACTION his administration has shown with regard to border security and with regard to stemming the invasion of illegal immigrants of ALL ages! That leaves only the NGO’s that can do anything worthwhile to help these children in their time of need.

  • http://politicalstickers.net/ FrankHerbert

Take that money and build military bases from Texas to California. Bring our troops home and pay them high paying jobs as border patrol agents.

Then there is no reason to come over.

If we had a real President who was serious and not looking to expand the Democrat Party voter base. We need OUR guns to protect ourselves from enemies both foreign and domestic. DRONING THE CARTELS’ HEADQUARTERS IS THE FASTEST, CHEAPEST AND EASIEST WAY TO LET THEM KNOW WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THEM AND THEIR ACTIONS. We would be doing everyone a favor if we did that. Obama’s not afraid to use drones in the Middle East, he can do the same here to protect OUR interests.

    Wrong on many accounts. Furthermore, Bush refused to close the border for over five years and he and McCain (McCain was a co-sponsor for the so called comprehensive immigration bill which “did not” close the border first) agreed only under extreme pressure from both the people and the conservatives in congress. That was when McCain gave his I get it, close the border first speech.

    Hello Neal, by “YOU” I mean the US, don’t take it personally.
    It may be my solitary post here, but if you read a little more about the whole problem you would know that. Here’s a link to back up my assertion:

    http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Americas/2013/0319/Study-A-quarter-million-US-guns-are-smuggled-into-Mexico-every-year

    Here’s another link claiming 70% of guns confiscated to drug cartels in Mexico came from the US. I think you will find it interesting, and although it’s from Wikipedia, it has a lot of sources to back up what it says:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smuggling_of_firearms_into_Mexico

    Regarding your allegation that the Mexican military is invading the US on a regular basis, your solitary post is a first for me. If they are, you (the US, not you personally) should obliterate them. I will research on that when I have time, or you can post a link as I would like to read about it.

    Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst just reported that the vast majority of illegal immigrants coming over the southern border are NOT UN-accompanied minors. 12% to 20% is all. Please Glenn, stop the photo ops and propaganda and lets get back to the truth.

  • Mark Huber

    This crisis reveals a humanitarian crises in Central America that has been little reported on. These are wonderful people, and share our Christian heritage. The solution is not hiring more lawyers to process them, it is demanding the implementation of a Marshall Plan for Central America to build its economic viability and to ensure that its people can lead free and full lives in their home country. Although I believe the Obama administration shamelessly inflamed this crises by creating false hopes of Amnesty and Citizenship, it is still undeniable that the awful conditions in the home countries must be addressed, and US military should assist in rooting out the drug cartels as aggressively as we went after Bin Laden. Nevertheless, I do not believe we should be taking these children from their home country and I do not think the USA should continue to receive large numbers of immigrants, but Central America should be preferred to those from continents an ocean away.

  • Sven Sanchez

    I agree with you Neal, BUT they will try and try again and try again to get to the US if conditions here do not change. People need jobs and security. I’m not saying the US should provide them, as it is our local government’s responsibility to create the conditions for this to happen, but locals won’t invest with such a violent climate controlled by drug cartels.

  • Sven Sanchez

    I guess Glenn and his team read posts here… if he is so passionate to report on the truth he will feel invited to expand his investigation and report the whole situation instead of just a shallow article.

    I’m not very happy with them either. But at least they don’t violate the Constitution daily. They just never stop the Left from VIOLATING it….which is a dereliction of duty. And that pisses me off.

    Except for the tiny little fact that ALL of them are here ILLEGALLY. That’s the real problem here. We don’t need anymore people in this country that are breaking the laws from the very second they enter this country. And if you don’t think that the problems compound themselves then you are kidding yourself.

    And the people coming here illegally because money got sent is because why? Nobody would walk and swim hundreds of miles unless they don’t have much. As for problems compounding themselves America really might want to figure out how to deal with the new wave of immigrants the same way they dealt with the people who came over from Europe and the Soviet Union during the turn of the last century. Nobody was talking about legal and illegal back then.

    I disagree. They propose and sign PLENTY of unconstitutional legislation. If by chance they take the senate in November… and the presidency in 2016… let’s revisit and see what they repeal… I’m guessing nothing.

    It is *Impossible* to prevent the Drug Cartels from acquiring guns, because they don’t CARE what the law says. They will TAKE them from a gun store or from law abiding citizens – whatever they have to do to get their hands on them. They most likely are already buying their weapons from BLACK MARKET dealers, and you could literally enact 10 Million new laws restricting their access – and they would have the same effect that existing laws have – ZERO effect.

    The problem with trying to compare them with immigrants from the turn of the last century is that those people came here to become Americans and for freedom. Very few of these people come here to become Americans. One
    way to know that for sure is that they never do become Americans. They may be here for a better life, but they have no interest into becoming part of the American main stream society. They often choose not to learn the language, they learn to play the system for their benefit, and they have no loyalty to this country. I don’t know where you live, but I live in Texas and this problem has been going on for years and runs far deeper than the surface stuff you’ll hear about on the news. Also, these people aren’t immigrants. If they were, they would abide by the laws to enter this country. They can come here legally with work visas, but they don’t. They could apply for citizenship for about the same cost that they pay to the ‘coyotes’ to get them here illegally. I’m not saying that something doesn’t need to be done about the immigration laws…..they should be easier and faster……but that doesn’t excuse that these people make a conscious choice to break the law and it costs us a lot more than just money.

    Its not only political, for votes, but now I’m begining to wonder if all these kids, including the older ones,along with the really bad ones…are going to be used to build an army of some kind too. What do you think?

  • Lancey

    Obama himself started this problem to deliberately orchestrate this crisis by anticipating that it would happen if he would give the right signals thus he gave religious organizations money for childrens aide in anticipation of this type of event occurring “four” years ago!

    How do you “know” he did ?

  • Grandhuff

    Because if it was important enough to him to make the trip out there to see what the real situation was; since the mainstream media is ignoring the situation entirely, then I know it was important enough for him to aid financially. This is the type of man he is. How much do you know about him? Have you read any of his books? Do you listen to his radio program? Did you attend his “Restoring Honor” gathering in DC? This gathering was so beautiful and inspiring, I have never been the same since. It was not at all about politics. I don’t have time to explain what all it entailed, but this is a man of God, honor , integrity, love for America and it’s people, and a great supporter of our troops and veterans. Yes, he’s rich, but does that make him a bad person? He worked VERY hard for his success, unlike so many. He is extremely generous with his money. Why do you condemn him?

  • Anonymous

    I am not condemning him. He’s entitled to make as much money as he desires. I do listen to him. Do I purchase his books ? No. Don’t buy his clothing either. Who spends $200 on a pair of jeans? ! My point was, you don’t know that he used his own money. ..just like FrankHerbert doesn’t know that he didn’t. And as someone who is less enamored of Glenn than you are….I can see how he’s changing

    You do what any other country in the world would do in an invasion. Send the military to the border fully armed, 1 warning shot, then shoot to kill. There isn’t another country that would allow this without a fight.. Except us

  • ken.

    right after the false reverend al sharpton held his counter rally to beck’s rally at the national mall, sharpton held a media interview where he said that ” i need to talk to the leaders of the minority gangs to counter to right wing movement ” there were not enough minority gang members in america to do the job so of course they need to increase the numbers. when the leftists start the civil war/revolution, most of the lefts army will be minority gang members, they do not have enough militarized government agencies to do the job. this is obamas domestic army he said that will be armed and trained as good or even better then our current military.

    Well when you reply to a post I made, you are referring to

    me when you say “you” unless you qualify it by saying it applies to all US Citizens.

    As far as the reference on Wikipedia, this statement is most telling:
    “Consequently, black market firearms are widely available”

    Even if they are originally purchased “legally” within the US, once they are transported/shipped/carried/etc to Mexico they are black market weapons. That is as I have said all along, that the US Government does not supply the cartels with drugs, and no legal gun shop would ever knowingly sell guns to the cartels – but rather they are obtaining all of their weapons through the black market.

    As far as the Mexican military entering the US, here are some links for you to look at:

    Those are the links I grabbed after a very quick google search. There were countless other links I didn’t take the time to post, because you can find them just as easily. Just search for Mexican Military enters US or Mexican military incursion into US or something similar. My search was “Mexican military enters US”.

    Not wanting o be part of America IS American. Unfortunately it also gets the people who refuse to be part of anything outside of their own enclaves being less than they could be. I can say the same about mainstream Americans who refuse to go to neighborhoods and ethnic grocery stores because they decide the food is weird and they hate that people speak other languages and have ethnic pride parades.
