Glenn on DACA: ‘No President Should Ever Be Able to Legislate From the Oval Office. Period.’

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that the Department of Homeland Security will immediately cease processing new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA — a policy enacted under the Obama administration which protects illegal immigrants who were brought to the US as children from deportation.

President Donald Trump tweeted, “Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!” in reference to a six-month deadline set for legislative action that would either preserve or reform DACA before it expires March 5, 2018. President Trump blames former President Barack Obama for using executive authority to create the program.

Glenn explored both sides of the DACA debate Tuesday on radio. “No president should ever be able to legislate from the oval office. Period,” said Glenn. “It starts first with two simple ideas,” he went on to say. “One: DACA is wrong. Two: so is illegal immigration.”

Watch as Glenn addresses the important questions, “What do you do with the people who are already here?” and “Should sons pay for the sins of the father?” in the video clip above.

GLENN: DACA is wrong. Coming into this country through illegal means is wrong. Period. Full stop. Both of those things are wrong.

That has to be said before we begin any other conversation. Let's start with DACA. No president should ever be able to legislate from the Oval Office. Period. And we have to have rule of law.

So we should not be allowing people to come into our country. But this requires an adult conversation. What do you do with the people who are already here? You know, this is such a ridiculous conversation because we should be having the conversation of, what do we do to stop new people from coming in? Then let's have the conversation of what do we do with the people who are already here?

Let me ask you this: Should children, should sons pay for the sins of the father?

No. Our Judeo-Christian values say no. However, wait a minute. Yes. I mean, no. But yes. Right? I mean, because if they don't pay for the sins of their father, then everybody is just going to continue to come here and then we just have to accept that the children stay. Because they don't pay for the -- it's impossible.

What are we supposed to do? The argument is, keep it, end it, keep it, end it. Racist. No, I'm not. Yes, you are. No, I'm not. Racist. Keep it. End it.

It's ridiculous. It's like we have a bunch of first graders running our country. Nobody is addressing the real issue. And here they are: Immigration is broken. Our laws mean nothing. And the president -- not this one, but the last one and the one before, they all think they can just make up laws and legislate from the Oval Office.

DACA is unconstitutional. The power to make laws belongs to Congress, not the president. Ending DACA is the right thing to do.

But it's not the entirety of the conversation. The conversation that we have to have is: What do we do to stop new people from coming in, and what do we do with the people who are already here?

The president needs to use DACA as a bargaining chip. Once he says, "I'm ending DACA," then the media just starts their circus of, "Look at the racists and these cute little children that are being hurt by this racist president." And then we get nowhere.

This is a problem that doesn't require -- this is a problem that demands a permanent solution. It's time for Congress to act. And we need adults.

How do we move forward on this issue? How we do it will tell us an awful lot about the kind of country that we want to be. But hear this: It starts first with two simple ideas. One, DACA is wrong. Two, so is illegal immigration.

Welcome to the program. We're so glad that you're here today. We've got a couple of things for you that we want to talk about. First of all, the president's next 30 days are really, really ugly. With everything that is happening in North Korea -- I don't know if you saw with North Korea -- South Korean intelligence reporting this morning that North Korea is preparing for another missile launch, likely an ICBM and pointing the missile at the west coast of the United States. It will take 30 minutes to reach LA from North Korea.

That's not good. That means that we will have 30 minutes to see the launch, project the trajectory, call the president, what do we do? Try to knock it out of the sky. Decide, do we launch back? What do we launch?

All before there's a splashdown in the water. We shoot it. Or a hydrogen bomb goes off in Los Angeles.

That's not the way I want to start my day. I don't know about you. But I don't know why people even become president of the -- I don't know why anybody would run for president. Every day, they wake you up in the middle of the night, Mr. President. Mr. President. There may be a hydrogen bomb coming our way. Sorry to wake you up, sir.

I don't want to wake up like that way every day.

STU: Hopefully they don't whisper things like that to the president. Shouldn't they actually like speak that in full voice?

GLENN: Oh, I don't know. I think I would rather have somebody come in and just ease me into it: Mr. President, it's going to be a great day. Maybe a little cloudy. And there's a hydrogen bomb that may be on our way.


STU: That's terrible.

GLENN: Yeah, it's going to be a great day. It's Tuesday. So you got Monday behind you already. So it's a short week, and it might even be shorter because they just launched and we might all be vaporized. You should get to the shelter, Mr. President.

STU: You think he's just going to work it into his like natural sound sleep machine, where like you have the waves crashing on the shoreline. And then every once in a while, it's just kind of a reminder that there could be a hydrogen bomb coming at any moment.

GLENN: "North Korea could launch."


Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.


Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.
