DACA vs. The Hill: Not Even Congress Trusts Congress Anymore

President Donald Trump announced this week that he is ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program shielding illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. while under the age of 16, and leaving the legislative work up to Congress.

DACA was instated by an executive order from President Barack Obama; a temporary fix that must be renewed every two years, the program protects around 800,000 people from deportation. Trump seemed to imply in a tweet that he expects Congress to craft legislation giving individuals using DACA to stay in the U.S. a path to living here legally.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced this week that DACA would be ending. In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump said, “Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”

On radio Wednesday, Glenn criticized members of Congress who are too eager to let the president do their job. Immigration policy should happen through legislation, not executive order.

“Even Congress doesn’t trust Congress anymore,” Glenn said. “Now Trump has returned the power back to Congress, and now they’re complaining about it. … When decisions are tough, they fall all over themselves to give their own power away.”

GLENN: Even Congress doesn't trust Congress anymore. Yesterday, the Trump administration announced that it would end DACA, that is the Obama-era presidential edict that allowed hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to avoid deportation. The plan is to give Congress six months to fix the problem. And the reaction from Congress? How dare you. How dare you let us handle this.

Hang on. Even Congress doesn't trust Congress anymore.

President Obama said this...

OBAMA: You know, I'm the president of the United States. I'm not the emperor of the United States.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Yeah. We knew that. We all knew that. I don't think he knew that at the time.

Now, Trump has returned the power back to Congress, and they're complaining about it.

Our Founders knew that the balance of power would work because each branch would want to protect their own power because they would all be power-hungry freaks. But now, when decisions are tough, they fall all over themselves to give their own power away.

Donald Trump said yesterday, "I knew some may wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that's not how our democracy works." Oh, wait. No. Hold on just a second. That wasn't Donald Trump yesterday. That was Barack Obama.

He was right. He just never lived those words. And now, what do we have?

Even Congress doesn't trust Congress anymore, and neither should you.

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.
