Glenn on DACA Deal: ‘Trump Was Left Cleaning up Obama’s Illegal Mess’

One of today’s biggest hot-button issues is immigration, more specifically, what to do about DACA. Lawmakers in both parties have been at a stalemate, unable to agree on how best to deal with “Dreamers.”

Catch me up on DACA

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Through DACA, immigrants who were brought to this country before they turned 16, and have lived here continuously since at least June 15, 2007, could apply for a permit which protects them from deportation.

President Obama passed DACA in 2012 through “presidential decree,” and it only applied to a specific group of people who had lived in this country illegally for at least 5 years at that time. No one who entered the country illegally after 2012 is eligible to apply. An estimated 800,000 “Dreamers” applied and are currently protected under the program.

“It wasn’t a heartless pulling of the plug like it’s being portrayed in the media”

Then along came Trump

By the time President Trump inherited this whole hot mess, several states were threatening to sue over DACA because Obama’s original presidential decree, which bypassed Congressional approval, and was both unconstitutional and illegal. In September 2017, President Trump called for the end of DACA in six-months if Congress could not reach an agreement on how to make the program work.

“It wasn’t a heartless pulling of the plug like it’s being portrayed in the media,” explained Glenn on the show today. “The Trump administration stopped receiving DACA applicants last September. If your DACA permit was set to expire before MArch 5, 2018, you were given one month to apply for a renewal which would extend your permit for two more years. More than 20,000 DACA permit holders who were eligible for the renewal did not get their permits extended. ”

President Trump continues to made his goals clear with the Obama Administration’s DACA program.

EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak: Hero or Villain? | Matt Ridley | Ep 126

Like most people, science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now? Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the Left practically worshipped Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology. In this episode of the Glenn Beck Podcast, Matt reveals the whole tangled web.

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today.
