Glenn reveals 'unpopular' feelings on immigration

One of the livelier parts of Tuesday night's GOP debate in Las Vegas was a sparring match between Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz on the issue of illegal immigration. Discussing the debate on radio Wednesday, Glenn opened up with some of his own feelings on the touchy subject, admitting what he was going to say was "really unpopular."

But first, some context from the debate.

Rubio accused Cruz of supporting the legalization of illegal immigrants in the U.S., referencing Cruz's support of an increase in H-1B visas and green cards. Cruz shot back by calling out Rubio on attempting to conflate legal with illegal immigration. Later, Cruz delivered a statement critics have held up as evidence of a weak immigration policy. The statement:

I have never supported legalization, and I do not intend to support legalization.

With "intend" being the key word here, some people have interpreted Cruz to be noncommittal in his immigration stance. Glenn, on the other hand, expressed admiration for the Texas Senator's choice of words --- especially in a world where "unless you deal with absolutes, nobody wants to talk about it."

He went on to share his own personal feelings on immigration and amnesty, prefacing it with the warning:

"I'm going to say something really unpopular," Glenn said.

GLENN: I'm going to say something really unpopular. But this is true. This is the way I feel. I would fight and fight and fight and fight to have self-deportation happen to where we cut -- we choke the jobs off. We choke the welfare off. We choke the hospitals off. We choke all of the draws that are bringing people into this country and keeping them here. I want to choke all of that off.

That will cause self-deportation in many of the cases. The rest of it, you do have to go and find these people and say, "You're -- we're evicting you. You're out." We do deport anybody who has broken the law. Well, that takes care of a lot of stuff. Then I want a wall. I -- in fact, I don't do anything without a wall. I don't do anything without real security. And it's damn near permanent because I don't want the next guy coming in, in four years and being able to turn it off. We have to have security and know who is coming in to our country and who is going out. I want all of the visas. I want to know exactly who is here, who has overstayed, and if they're overstayed, fine them and get them out of here.

So I want all those things done without question. But let's just say all of those things have just been done. Are you telling me that you will not consider somebody who has been here for 30 years and you go, "Look. I don't know. I don't even know what to do." Say you've been here for 30 years, what do I do? When all of those other things are done, you won't at least consider them?

STU: I think, yeah. I mean, I think the -- I think there's still a problem with, you know, giving someone a pass because they've broken -- you've said this before, because someone has broken a crime for three decades instead of six months, they shouldn't be worse. It's actually worse.

GLENN: They're five years old when they get here. And I'm not saying -- I'm not suggesting that we give it to them. I'm just saying, I will sit down -- after all those other things are done, I will sit down and say, "Okay. If you were five when you got here, what are we going to do? You are an American at this point. You've been in this system. And it's no fault of your own. What do we do?"

Now, I'm not having that conversation at all, ever, with anyone, except me and probably my wife until I get everything else done. Once everything else is done, then I'll be willing to say to the other side, "Okay. Well, let's look at that 5-year-old who is now 35 and see what we can do." Because now I've -- I've turned the water off.

STU: Right.

GLENN: The basement isn't flooding anymore.

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.
