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."

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
