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?

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?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

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.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
