"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.

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
