Grieving dad rips 'black lives matter' mantra

The country was torn apart last year over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson and the chokehold death of Eric Garner in New York City. "Black lives matter" became the rallying cry as protests and riots erupted from New York to California. But one father wonders how true that is. His son wasn't gunned down by white police officers, but by an illegal immigrant DREAMer.

In a powerful speech, Jamiel Shaw fiercely criticized the Obama administration's immigration policy.

WATCH (scroll down for full text of his speech):

My name is Jamiel Shaw. My son Jamiel Andre Shaw II was murdered by a DREAMer. DACA recipient. A child brought to this country by no fault of his own. My family's peace and freedom were stolen by an illegal alien from Mexico. He was brought here by his illegal alien parents and allowed to grow up as a wild animal. Some people believe that if you are brought over by no fault of your own, that it makes you a good person. They want us to believe that DREAMer kids don't murder. I am here to debunk that myth. Kids brought over the border by no fault of their own do kill Americans.

How many Americans killed by illegal aliens are too many? One? Two? A hundred? Thousand? 100,000? Ask any parent whose child was murdered by an illegal alien how many is too many. As one of those parents, I'm here to tell you that one is too many. My son, Jamiel Shaw II was murdered while walking on his own street three houses down from his home. An illegal alien on his third gun charge was visiting a neighbor when my son was coming home. He shot my son in the stomach and then in the head killing him.

Do black lives really matter, or does it matter only if you're shot by a white person or a white policeman? The district attorney proved in court that my son was murdered because he was black and wearing a Spider-Man backpack. Jamiel's mother Army Sergeant Anita Shaw, who was serving in Iraq fighting for their freedom called me from Iraq to ask, was it true that Jazz was dead? And Jazz is the name we call our son. His nickname.

How many other military families have made that same phone call from some foreign land in disbelief that their sons or daughters have been killed in America by illegal alien invaders? Do military families matter? DREAMer kids have turned my family's American dream into a nightmare.

The illegal alien DREAMer that murdered my son only served four months of an eight-month sentence for assault with a deadly weapon and battery on a police officer. He was released from the county jail the day before he executed my son. Why was this violent illegal alien allowed to walk the streets of America instead of being deported? Why was ICE not called to pick up this violent invader? We were promised that the federal government would keep us safe from violent illegal aliens. Article four, section four of the US Constitution guarantees us protection against invasion.

I see in here black politicians, black athletes, black stars say, 'Hands up. Don't shoot.' My son was shot in the head by an illegal alien gangbanger while he lay on his back with his hands up. He still shot him through his hand into his head and killed him. My son thought he could walk down the street and not be murdered by an illegal alien. That he could depend on the government to secure our borders and keep the bad people out.

Yes, black families matter. Yes, military families matter. All families matter. But the duty of the US government is to always put American families first. Honorable chairman -- I had a different name. I'm sorry.

Honorable chairman, ranking member, today's hearing was called to review the Department of Homeland Security's policies and procures for the apprehension and detention and release of noncitizens unlawfully present in the United States -- United States.

In his November 20th, 2014, speech to the nation on immigration, President Obama said, if you are a criminal, you'll be deported. If you plan to enter the US illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up. The president said he wanted to work with both parties to pass a more permanent legislative solution. The president also said: And to those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer, pass the deal.

In three of the past four Congresses, Representative Walter Jones has introduced Illegal Alien Crime Reporting Act, which would address many of the issues this hearing was called to discuss, but could never get a hearing.

In the 113th Congress Representative Jones renamed a bill after my son. HR 1888 the Jamiel Shaw Junior Memorial Act of 2013 never got a hearing. As we sit here today I offer for consideration HR 104 1he Jamiel Shaw II  Memorial Act of 2015. It is only two pages long but chops at the root of the problem.

Until the FBI is allowed to track and report illegal alien crime it is doubtful that the american people will understand how severe the problem violent illegal alien crime is. I doubt any ten people would define comprehensive immigration reform the same way. But I can assure you there what we really need is comprehensive immigration enforcement: secure borders and ports of entry and the oversight of Congress to ensure that America and american families are job one

Thank You.

"That is a powerful, powerful speech," Glenn said. "That's a compelling testimony and a compelling argument. How did you take him apart? You don't."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
