Did the Obama administration engineer a humanitarian crisis on the border to push a progressive agenda?

Has the Obama administration engineered a humanitarian crisis in order to advance progressive policies on illegal immigration? That's the charge Glenn made in his opening monologue Monday night on TheBlaze, connecting the President's stance on illegals and a series of alarming stories from the border that have raised a lot of questions.

Last week, Glenn reported on a spike in illegal immigrant children trying to cross the border. In fact, some reports claim that 60,000 children will attempt to cross the border this year alone. Border agents are overwhelmed and ill-equipped to process such a huge number of illegals, let alone teenagers and kids as young as nine years old.

President Obama came out and called this an "urgent humanitarian crisis" last Monday, and has requested an extra $1.4 billion - yes BILLION - in order to cope with the crisis. Meanwhile, over 700 kids are now being sheltered in a warehouse in Arizona.

It's a tragic situation. No one - even the staunchest opponents to illegal immigration - want to see kids suffering in a makeshift shelter, missing their parents and longing for the better life promised by the American Dream.

But as the news cycle is dominated by the gut wrenching tragedy of the situation - no one is asking the important question: why the sudden influx of kids on the border? Why are they coming now?

The administration and the media are reporting that they are fleeing extreme poverty and rising violence - but hasn't that been going on for years now?

Glenn noticed that in one news report from the LA Times there may be an answer: "Increased violence in Central America, the desire to reunify with parents and false rumors circulating in their homelands that unaccompanied children can stay indefinitely in the United States are fueling the surge, administration officials said." (emphasis added)

A local report from KRGV gives further evidence that a local news station in Guatemala is telling mothers with kids will not be turned away at the border.

Central Americans say news reports in their countries are encouraging them to make the journey north to the United States.

A mother and child told CHANNEL 5 NEWS that the message being disseminated in their country is, "go to America with your child, you won't be turned away."

The woman, Nora Griselda Bercian Diaz, from Guatemala, said she endured threats from the Zetas and extortion from corrupt Mexican police. She eventually crossed the Rio Grande with her 6-year-old Delmi Griselda Paul Bercian by her side.

Where did this rumor come from? Glenn tied it back to a 2012 Executive Order issued by President Obama that allowed illegal immigrants who came here as minors to defer deportation for two years. However, this order only applies to those who came to America before 2007, a fact often buried by the Obama administration.

"Everything the administration has communicated on the issue of illegal immigration has left no doubt that this is an administration friendly to illegal immigrants. The clear impression that he is leaving is this: They want to abolish deportation. They want amnesty for all. Even the worst of the worst, convicted illegal felons, are treated like royalty. 36,000 were released from prison in 2013 alone. Yet our one marine is on Day 70 in a Mexican prison? The administration has actually planned another executive order to extend this deportation delay another two years, they haven't pulled the trigger on it, but he will," Glenn said.

Glenn said it should be no surprise that people are choosing to break the law because they know President Obama doesn't want to follow it. In fact, the humanitarian crisis with the children held at the border has reignited the debate of illegal immigration and renewed the left's push for legislation that would grant amnesty to kids who illegally came here "through no fault of there own."

"I will tell you, you are dealing with dangerous revolutionaries," Glenn said. "They will make sure they never let a crisis go to waste."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
