Illegal Immigrant Hits Jackpot and Is Awarded $190K From San Francisco for Deporting Him

San Francisco needs to make up their mind on which of their immigration policies they want to follow. They let Kate Steinle's killer back into the country six times after serious felonies yet they turned one man over to ICE when he reported his car stolen.

The Venezuelan national, Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, has now not only sued San Francisco but was awarded $190,000. Something doesn't smell right and Glenn and the guys kicked around a theory why that is on radio Wednesday.

"Now, why did they take the case, and what is being done here? And I think you're exactly right, Stu. That they are using this as a case -- because he's a sympathetic figure. Here's the guy that everybody wants to say is the guy, and he's a hard-working guy. He's here for a job. He's doing his job. He's paying his taxes," Glenn said.

Remember, Rosa Parks was not the first to stand up on the bus and say, "No, I'm not sitting in the back." She was just the best one to represent the cause.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: A man from El Salvador in the US, illegally, has sued San Francisco after police turned him over to immigration authorities in violation of the city's sanctuary law.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: He's going to be awarded $190,000 according to his attorney. Now, this happened last Thursday.

PAT: Heaven help us.

GLENN: Now, what happened? Imagine, San Francisco, they didn't turn in anybody.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: A guy -- Kate's Law happened in San Francisco. The guy who killed Kate. What was her last name?

PAT: Steinle.

GLENN: Shot by a guy who had been --

PAT: Deported five times.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Back in the country six times.

GLENN: Came back. Breaking the law. Drugs. All kinds of bad stuff. They refused to turn him over, and he went out and killed somebody.

Now, what did this guy -- 33 years old, what did this guy to have the San Francisco authorities go around the law -- their sanctuary city law --

PAT: Which it's really not a law, is it? Is it a law or is it a policy?

GLENN: It's a policy.

PAT: It does say law, but I think they're just policies.

GLENN: But the police follow that as law. They follow it. They always follow it.

PAT: Yes, they do.

GLENN: No matter how bad the guy is.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So, again, the question is, what did this guy do? This is where this story just wreak to high heaven. What did this guy do?

PAT: Must have been bad, right?

GLENN: Right? Had to be.

No. He reported his car stolen. Police say they found it. He went to pick it up. And they asked him, "Are you here legally?" No. They turned immigration officials on to him.

PAT: Oh, no.

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: No, no, no. But before you get into the mocking of it, which is quite easy to do. Before you get into the mocking of it --

PAT: Yes, it is easy to do. Because this is ridiculous.

GLENN: Why -- why did they make an exception for this guy? He's a carpenter. He was building houses. He had a job. He was minding his own business. Here's a guy who reports crime. They say that's the number one thing for sanctuary cities.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: They don't feel comfortable reporting crime. So a guy reports crime. He's a victim. And they turn him over. Why?

JEFFY: That's a good question.

GLENN: Why? I do not have an answer at this point.

JEFFY: Because that's a good --

GLENN: But why?

STU: Well, the obvious one is that Trump handles thing differently. The pressure maybe is getting to some of these smaller communities.

JEFFY: Or this is their fightback. Right?

PAT: Or this is a way for them to say, this is exactly why we have this sanctuary city law so that crimes --

JEFFY: Right. Right.

GLENN: This happened under Obama, by the way.

STU: Okay.

PAT: So that crimes are reported.

PAT: So that crimes are reported, we must have it.

GLENN: So now the staff attorney at the Asian Law Caucus -- the Asian Law Caucus. This guy is not Asian.

PAT: No.

GLENN: This guy is Pedro --

PAT: Figueroa-Zarceno.

GLENN: -- Figueroa-Zarceno. He's 33. He's not Asian. The guy who is at the Asian Law Caucus decided to pick this up.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: And was represented by Sierra Hussein. Now, why did they take the case, and what is being done here? And I think you're exactly right, Stu. That they are using this as a case -- because he's a sympathetic figure. Here's the guy that everybody wants to say is the guy --

JEFFY: Yep.

GLENN: -- you know --

PAT: We told you they won't report if you're going to do this. This guy is just reporting a crime.

GLENN: And he's a hard-working guy. He's here for a job. He's doing his job. He's paying his taxes.

JEFFY: We had to.

GLENN: Remember, Rosa Parks was not the first to stand up on the bus and say, "No, I'm not sitting in the back."

PAT: She was just the best one to represent the cause.

GLENN: Exactly right. There were other people before her --

PAT: There were teens, right? Young girls.

GLENN: She was the one -- she was the one that the system, if you will, picked and said, she's the one that has the great case.

PAT: We're going to run with her.

GLENN: She's perfectly articulate. She's got a clean record. I think she was married and had kids or whatever the situation was. But she was not the first to stand up. She was the one that the -- the movement chose and said, "You go do it."

STU: To quote Joe Biden, she was articulate and clean. It was a fairytale. It was a fairytale.

GLENN: No, that's when he was talking about something else.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Why was this guy selected? Because, remember, he was arrested at the end of December --

PAT: December 2015.

GLENN: -- and they file suit in January. So they find him. They find each other.

PAT: Uh-huh. It was after Kate Steinle was murdered.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: So even after that murder, they're still -- they're willing to -- I mean, this guy has a lot of nerve to turn around and sue the city for $190,000 when he shouldn't be here in the first place.

STU: That's amazing.

PAT: And they grant him that $190,000. They're trying to make a statement here.

GLENN: And I'm probably reading way too much into it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It just doesn't seem -- why break it on this one? Why break it on this one?

STU: Even us. We're strong on the border. The most ardent defender of ending sanctuary cities would admit that this is certainly a possibility to happen occasionally.

GLENN: Oh, it's going to happen over and over again. Not in San Francisco.

If this happened in Dallas, you would kind of understand it. This is San Francisco.

STU: You might as well wait for the perfect case, though.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. You're saying, it they were waiting for a case? Oh, yeah. Yeah.

STU: Because obviously -- the point is, you're making large decisions over large groups of people here, not saying that there never can be an exception to this rule. But you have to weigh the positives and the negatives. It's a cost-benefit analysis.

GLENN: If you're coming to the police to report a crime, I think I could easily side with, leave people alone. Let them report crime. You know what I mean? Don't ask any questions when you're reporting a crime because you don't want crime to happen. This is the worst-case scenario for people who say, hey, we have a problem with illegals.

Okay. Well, let's make sure they report crime. Let's give them a pass on reporting crime.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: You know what I mean? That's an easy compromise to make.

PAT: Yeah. We can work this out, easily.

GLENN: Why after Kate is singled out, this guy comes up to report a crime and all of a sudden --

PAT: They make him rich.

GLENN: Yeah. And San Francisco becomes a hardass with this guy?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's not right. Right?

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
