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.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

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.
