Illegal immigrants using ‘rehearsed’ answers to get across the border

Editor’s Note: Sara Carter will also be joining Glenn on Monday’s Glenn Beck Program at 5pm ET on TheBlaze TV to further discuss what she has uncovered. Not a subscriber? Start your 14-day free trial HERE.

In the wake of reports that Central American news agencies are encouraging people to head to America’s southern border and the Obama Administration’s recent actions to combat the so-called humanitarian crisis that will result in some 60,000 unaccompanied children entering the United States this year alone, Glenn asked TheBlaze’s senior Washington correspondent Sara Carter to travel to border town of McAllen, Texas to get a better sense of what is happening.

“So where do we go from here? What happens from here? I'm not sure I'm going to lay it all out for you tonight yet, but I'm going to work on it today before 5 o'clock. If I can, I will debut it tonight, but I know the way out, and I know what is coming. I don't know how to do the way out,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “For instance, on the border both the Republicans and the Democrats are involved in that… And the tables do need to be overturned.”

In just a few days' time, Carter has uncovered some truly disturbing details about what border agents are facing and what the Obama Administration doesn’t want people to know. On Sunday, Carter published a report on TheBlaze.com detailing the pushback reporters and politicians alike are facing:

While reporters were kept from entering the McAllen Border Patrol station on Saturday where roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants — mainly children — were being held, a local Texas congressman made clear he wasn’t going to be kept out, and spent several hours talking to the children and Border Patrol agents inside.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, told TheBlaze he wanted to see for himself the difficult conditions the Border Patrol agents are dealing with concerning the large migration of people from Central America to the U.S. over the past eight months. He also wanted to check on the condition of the children being temporarily housed in the overcrowded facility in the Rio Grande Valley border sector.

Monday morning, Carter posted another article – this time chronicling the “rehearsed” answers many illegal immigrants are offering to ensure they are able to cross the border:

A Honduran woman clutched her small baby boy from the back of a Border Patrol transport truck. She was sitting with 12 other people, mostly children, who had just made their way from Reynosa, Mexico, across the Rio Grande by the Anzalduas port of entry in Texas.

The mother, who had crossed first with one baby, had left her infant and older son along the banks of the river in Mexico. Her two children followed in a second raft and joined their mother after the Border Patrol took her into custody.

“We’re fleeing gang violence,” the mother told the Border Patrol agent, who detailed the conversation to TheBlaze on the condition that he not be named. The group did not run, but voluntarily turned themselves in to U.S. federal custody and claimed what is known as credible fear to apply for asylum in the U.S.

They all knew it was only a matter of time before they would be set free.

“They know exactly what to say,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “You will see pictures of one of the kids that was coming over, wearing an Obama 2008 election t-shirt, you know, thinking I guess, that's what all Americans wear and we can all blend in. And soon, if the President has his way, I think we all will be wearing these Obama t-shirts.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
