"It’s a bunch of crap": New report shows 68,000 criminal aliens released into the U.S.

There is a new report released by the Center for Immigration Studies that found that in 2013, while the president was saying the United States arrested and deported more illegal immigrants than ever before, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released 68,000 criminal aliens and put back into the country. They also failed to remove 870,000 illegal aliens that had mandatory deportation orders. TheBlaze's Tara Setmayer joined Glenn on Tuesday night to elaborate on the story.

TheBlaze reported on the study:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 68,000 criminal aliens back into the United States and failed to remove 870,000 illegal aliens with mandatory deportation orders in 2013, a new report into the catch-and-release policy of the Obama administration revealed.

The report, released Monday by the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, found that while the Obama administration has deported some violent criminals, it only targeted 195,000 — just 25 percent of 722,000 potentially deportable aliens encountered by ICE officers.

"This story is being whitewashed, literally," Setmayer said. "The administration has been lying to us for many years about a bunch of things, but what’s going on at the border and what’s happening with illegal immigration is one of the biggest lies that this administration is perpetuating."

She went on to explain that in the past, deportations and border patrol apprehensions were treated as separate and distinct numbers. So people who were stopped and turned around at the border were put in a different category than illegal aliens apprehended and deported by ICE after they were already in the country.

"They’re using border patrol apprehensions at the border and conflating them with ICE deportations to come up with this phony deportation number. So that’s the first time that’s ever happened. So the numbers the administration has been putting out thus far, trying to claim that they’re so tough on deportations, it’s a bunch of crap," Setmayer said.

Setmayer also pointed to a January report from TheBlaze's Senior Washington Correspondant Sara Carter showing how the U.S. government is ignoring the problem of illegal immigration:

It’s not just federal law enforcement officials crying foul over a lack of government enforcement. A court order issued Dec. 13 by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanon in Texas accused the U.S. government of aiding and abetting human traffickers from El Salvador and Mexico when federal officers helped accomplish the smuggler’s mission by delivering a child they detained at the border to her illegal immigrant mother in Virginia.

The unnamed El Salvadorian girl, 12, referred to in the court order as Y.P.S., traveled with unknown smugglers after her mother agreed to pay the drug cartel traffickers $8,500, including a $6,000 upfront deposit, to have her brought to the U.S. The child was taken through a smuggling route that ended at a Texas checkpoint when federal officers uncovered the smuggling ring. Despite the violation of federal law, the Department of Homeland Security delivered the girl to her mother who is living illegally in Virginia. No charges were filed against the mother and neither were deported.

"The Obama administration doesn’t believe that our border should be enforced. It’s clear," Setmayer said. "And Republicans are guilty in their own way because they want cheap labor, and they don’t want to be seen as being against Hispanics because of the vote. They want Hispanics to vote for them. And the politicization of this issue has really weakened the United States on the number of levels, including on a national security level as well."

TheBlaze's newsmagazine show 'For The Record' took an in depth look at the situation on the border in September of last year. Subscribers to TheBlaze TV can view that episode HERE.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
