On radio Monday, Glenn gave an update on what the U.S. now wants to do with refugees from ISIS and from Syria.
"John Kerry has come out and said, 'we're going to take 200,000 refugees.' Well, here's the problem with this. We don't want refugees," Glenn said.
Glenn went on to break down the difference between refugees and those seeking asylum.
"Refugees connotate a group of people that are going to go back home once the conflict is over," Glenn said. "The Muslim world can take care of the refugees."
Glenn explained there's a huge difference between refugees who will be accepted back into their countries and those who are marked for death and have nowhere to go.
"What we are looking for are people who are seeking asylum," Glenn said.
Glenn told listeners the Nazarene Fund to rescue Christians seeking asylum has raised over $7.5 million and people are now on the ground in the Middle East, working to secure their release. And while Glenn is typically pretty open about the details of his ventures, he said he won't be able to share very much during the next several weeks to protect those involved.
"I have to be cryptic, but I have to tell you the main thing I'm going to ask you for is prayer," Glenn said.

I don't have the latest number. But it's probably about $7.5 million that we have raised here in the last three and a half weeks. And I've never seen anything like this. Every dollar, so, you know, every dollar of the Nazarene Fund goes to help free those Christians in the Middle East. And I do emphasize that for a reason. The president has now come out and said -- John Kerry has come out and said, "We're going to take 200,000 refugees." Well, here's the problem with this. We don't want refugees.
Saudi Arabia has more than enough room. Jordan has enough room for refugees. Europe and the United States and the western world does not need Muslim refugees. There is enough room in Muslim countries, let them do their five pillars with their own people.
Refugees connotate a group of people that are going to go back home once the conflict is over. These people are not coming home. Now, how do we vet them? Well, let me tell you. You know how you get on a list for a refugee to come to the United States? You have to go to our embassy or our consulate, and you have to be put on a list. Well, who is doing the vetting there? Who is putting the people on the list? Well, in those countries, we hire Muslims to do that. So how many Muslims are coming in compared to how many Christians are coming in? If you're a Christian -- the number one we complaint we get from talking to the Christians over there is, "We can't get into the United States because there's no Christians that work at the embassies that will even listen to us. We're second-class citizens."
So you don't want refugees. You want those who are seeking asylum. There is a huge difference. And what is happening is, we are being told, "You know, you don't want any of these people anymore." Yes, you do. You want those who are seeking asylum. The Muslim world can take care of the refugees because we have seen how refugees in the Muslim world are used. And eventually nobody wants them. And they are going to create a Palestinian state in our own country and in Europe. It will be the same thing. The refugees never go home. Ask Jordan. There is no solution there.
They are used by Islamists to change the course of countries. What we are looking for are people who are seeking asylum.
Now, we have raised about seven and a half million dollars in the last three weeks. And because I am who I am and because I also overshare, because I am transparent, like it or not, sometimes in all the wrong ways I am transparent, I am -- I've put people in danger. Our own people. And we have -- also, because I am who I am and we're vocal -- and, you know, It Is About Islam, is being sold in the Middle East. The book.
When I got a call from the publisher and they said, "We just received a rather large order for your book in Arabic in the Middle East." Like, "That's not going to be good, is it, for my travel over -- anywhere in that?" No.
I'm going to ask you for a favor. I am -- I'm not going to talk about this for the next few weeks. I'm going to kind of just not talk about it. Because we have people on the ground. And I'm not going to give you anymore information than that. We have people now that are trying to get out, but if they are known that they're trying to get out with us, it puts everybody in danger.
And so what I'm asking you for is just a pause on information for a while. And let our proof be in the pudding. There are some things that are happening around the world because everything is changing so rapidly. You know, I think what's really a good thing is these countries over in Europe, they -- they were saying, "You know, we're not going to take any asylum seekers. We're not going to take anybody." But now when they have this group of, you know, 400,000 20-somethings, men who are coming over that are Muslim and you can't tell the difference between the Muslim and the Islamist and Europe is freaking out, they look like haters. They won't take anybody.
So what a lot of these countries are now starting to think and consider and do is, they are -- they are trying -- we are -- they are -- they are -- people are trying to convince them that it would be in their best interest to not look like haters and turn everybody away. It might be in their best interest to look and vet in an organized fashion a large number of Christians and bring the large number of Christians into their nation and let the Arab world deal with the Muslims because they're best equipped to know who the good ones are and who the bad ones are. We're best equipped to know who the good Christians are and who the bad Christians are. And we are looking at levels of presidents and prime ministers at this moment trying to get countries all around the world to take them.
And you are leading the world. When I say that, I mean that sincerely. You are leading the world in this effort. And so we will have more to report here in the coming weeks. But I said that we were going to make some dramatic moves by Christmas, and I believe we are going to do that and maybe more before Christmas. And I'll give you more details as I can. But I would just ask for this: More than money, more than anything else, pray, please. Pray for those people who are on the ground trying to get them out. Those who need to get out. And those leaders of countries, including our own to see the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker. And see the wisdom in taking asylum seekers.
