Border Patrol union rep tells Dana Loesch: 'We have to stop releasing people'

Last week, Glenn found himself in the company of a strange bedfellow as he agreed with Shawn Moran, spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council – the union that represents Border Patrol agents. Moran spoke out in defense of border patrol agents whose rights are being violated.

According to reports, a U.S. Border Patrol manager in Tucson, Arizona has forbidden agents from bringing cellphones or any electronic devices to work after photographs were leaked several weeks ago showing hundreds of children being housed at the overcrowded Nogales processing center. Moran condemned the manager’s actions as a violation of the established, collectively-bargained guidelines.

On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Moran joined guest host Dana Loesch to discuss the "number one" thing the United States must do thwart the influx of illegal immigrants crossing the border. It begins with enforcing the laws on the books.

"The number one thing we need to do is close the loophole. We have to stop releasing people," Moran said emphatically. "I know it tugs at the heartstrings when it’s children, but we cannot allow people to be released. That’s their end goal. They want to get to America, and we’re facilitating that."

It is expected that some 60,000 children will attempt to cross the border this year alone. Earlier this month, President Obama called the surge of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children an “urgent humanitarian situation,” and the White House asked Congress for an extra $1.4 billion in federal money to help cope with this problem. President Obama said the U.S. would continue to house the children at various military bases.

Moran believes this troubling trend will continue until the catch and release policy is changed.

“I don’t know if there is an end in sight to this if we continue to allow people to be released,” he said. “Until we see something in a change of policy, people are going to continue to come here.”

Our border patrol forces are depleted because of the administrative backlog the skyrocketing number of crossings has created. According to Moran, “about 45% of our people” are stuck inside doing administrative work, rather than actually securing our border.

"So that leaves about half our people out in the field. And the cartels know this, so they’re orchestrating these crossings and having people surrender to us instead of going to a port of entry where they could more safely surrender. They would not have to go across a river, would not have to jump a border fence or risk their lives in those ways," Moran explained. "And the outcome would be the same if they surrendered at a port of entry, but the cartels are doing this because then it ties up border patrol agents on the ground and allows them to follow on with their drugs, weapons, special interest aliens, what have you."

While Moran admits this is obviously a "difficult" situation, the problem is only getting worse. When asked at what point this crisis becomes "critical," Moran said that time has passed.

"Is this problem getting worse," Dana asked. "I mean at what point do you hit critical with this?"

"I think we did that probably about six to eight months ago, and just nobody really was paying attention," Moran concluded. "It’s only in the last month that this story has really come to the forefront."

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.
