'We are under invasion': Louie Gohmert talks to Dana Loesch about his trip to the border

During a House Judiciary hearing earlier this week, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) voiced his concerns about the health threats that have accompanied the Obama Administration's immigration policy. Gohmert said Obama is "luring" children across the border by promising them a "free pass," and that has resulted in an H1N1 flu outbreak at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Additionally, there have been reports of lice and scabies outbreaks at various border patrol posts.

Gohmert is particularly familiar with what is currently transpiring at border towns in Texas after visiting McAllen, Texas last week. He joined guest host Dana Loesch on Thursday's Glenn Beck Program to discuss what he witnessed and what must be done to curb this crisis.

"We are under invasion, and this President will not protect our country," Gohmert said emphatically. "And he will not step in and enforce the law as it is."

Last week, Glenn reacted to a Los Angeles Times report that put the number of people crossing the border into frightening perspective. At the McAllen 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. Gohmert confirmed that report.

"I showed up at the McAllen border patrol facility where they’ve got over 1,000 - maybe over 1,200 people. The facility is not supposed to have that many people," he said. "But the reason they have them is because of a law previously passed that says, 'Gee, if border patrol pick up children, then they immediately have to go to Health and Human Services.' Well, as you know, Health and Human Services is busy right now taking over everybody’s healthcare."

As a result, the situation on the ground at these border patrol facilities is truly disturbing. Those who are known to have lice or scabies are cordoned off by nothing more than "red crime scene tape." Meanwhile, Gohmert described seeing people "lying on the concrete floor" and "huddling" in the corner.

"It is a terrible situation," Gohmert said. "As one border patrolman said, 'I would be livid, I would be ballistic if my child were in this situation.' But the border patrol’s hands are tied because the law says Health and Human Services have to take them, and they’re not picking them up."

While border states like Texas are beginning to take matters into their own hands by stepping up drug enforcement efforts in an attempt to thwart the influx of drug cartels and gang members crossing the border, Gohmert reiterated that most people's hands are tied.

"And that’s why I say… there should not be any new immigration bill until the President enforces the law as it is," Gohmert concluded, "and our Department of 'Injustice' begins to be a Department of Justice."

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

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."
