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.

(chuckling)

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."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.
