Report: More than 1,500 illegals flowing into McAllen, TX alone on a daily basis

A new Los Angeles Times report puts the number of people crossing the United States southern border into frightening perspective. At the McAllen, Texas border patrol station alone, some 1,500 people daily are occupying a space that is meant to house 250 detainees. Likewise, other smaller stations in the area are housing two or three times their capacity. On radio this morning, Sergio Sanchez of 710 KURV in McAllen called in to further discuss the crisis.

While reports put the number of illegal immigrants detained each day at 1,000 to 1,500 in McAllen, that number in no represents the number of people who are not captured daily.

“That's what they're capturing – about a thousand to 1500,” Sanchez explained. “Now, the best estimates – and this came from border patrol – about a year ago they said they used drone technology to try to determine how many people got into the country illegally… They're comfortable they catch 40% on a good day. That's a good day. They have not been having good days of late. So you can just imagine the flood of humanity that's actually getting past border patrol.”

Of those who are caught, Sanchez speculated that 20 to 30% are children. As Sanchez explained, these kids arrive with nothing more than a piece of paper in their pocket that gives the name, address, and phone number of some family member that is already in the U.S. The notes usually say something like, “Please get me there as quickly as you can.”

It is because of policies like catch and release and selective deportation that this influx has gotten so out-of-control.

“Eventually the word gets down to Central America. And I don't know what sparked it, but for the past several months, we have been seeing a flood of OTM. That's ‘Other Than Mexicans,’” Sanchez explained. “These are not Mexican immigrants that are coming in. These are Central Americans for the most part.”

“We have tens of thousands of people trekking across Mexico because somehow the message got through to them that if they come to the U.S., they have a catch and release policy. They have a selective prosecution, deportation policy,” he continued. “And if you show up and you're a kid, the chances are you're going to stay. If you're a woman with kids, chances are you're going to stay. And there is no relief in sight because what we require is leadership from the White House.”

The White House has called this most recent surge in border crossings – especially the influx of unaccompanied children – a humanitarian crisis. In that regard, Sanchez agrees with the Obama Administration.

“It's the President himself who admitted this is… a humanitarian crisis or something like that. He recognizes we have a problem down here. It's the local cities down here, the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, everyone trying to do their part to feed these kids, clothe these kids, put shoes on these kids because they are here,” he explained. “These people are hungry. They survived the trip across Mexico… It's the Salvation Army that's providing overnight sheet shelter, food, clothing, shoes. There the one doing everything down here – Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army.”

Ultimately, Sanchez believes this is a problem that was created by the U.S. government’s policies, and it is a problem that can only solved through real leadership.

“This plight has been created by an administration that, again, provides no leadership,” he concluded. “It is an unofficial open invitation. We need America to wake up.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
