Illegal alien granted state post in California: ‘Undocumented students’ ‘more visible in our state’

Of course, California. We’re not surprised. The rogue state, already experiencing a mass exodus, just appointed its first illegal immigrant to statewide office. Lizbeth Mateo, backed by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León’s office, is a 33-year-old immigrant rights activist who will now serve on the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.

What’s the committee do exactly?

It advises the California Student Aid Commission. According to the Sacramento Bee, this office is tasked with increasing “college access for California students from low-income or underserved communities.”

“While Donald Trump fixates on walls, California will continue to concentrate on opportunities,” the office of de León said.

“Ms. Mateo is a courageous, determined and intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this country.”

“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,” added Mateo in a statement.

Mateo was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, and arrived in the United States when she was 14.

GLENN: So here's this: Wednesday, first illegal immigrant ever to serve in state office in California, was appointed by the California Senate Rules Committee.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: Lizabeth Mateo, 33, who attended Santa Clara University Law School in 2016, passed the California bar last year, is going to serve as the California student opportunity and access program grant advisory committee, which advises the California student aid commission on ways to make it easier for students from low-income or underserved communities to attend. What are those underserved communities?

STU: I could guess.

GLENN: Yes, I bet you do.

Senate president Kevin de Leon, who announced the decision, took the opportunity to slam President Trump. He released a statement that read, while Donald Trump fixates on walls, California will ton concentrate on opportunities. Ms. Mateo is a courageous -- how dare him use Miss. Is that the proper pronoun? I hope to God so.

STU: Is that an assumption of gender?

GLENN: I think it is. Ms. Mateo is courageous, determined, and an intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this -- in this country.

Now, Mateo followed that up with, while undocumented students -- in my day, we used to call them illegally here. Illegal aliens.

While undocumented students had become more visible in our state, they remain unrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are made.

So, in other words, in the House and the Senate. You can't legally vote, but now you can serve in the Senate.

STU: If you're Donald Trump -- let me run this by you. You're sitting in the White House.

GLENN: I'm Donald Trump. Okay. Got it.

STU: You are Donald Trump. You're sitting in the White House right now. You are a guy who occasionally likes the jousting of a good conflict.

GLENN: Yes. I like conflict. I'm Donald Trump. I like conflict.

STU: You kind of like it. It's kind of what you like about the gig.

GLENN: Yes. That's what life is all about.

STU: And you like to send the message that you're very tough --

GLENN: Yes. He likes that too.

STU: -- on illegal immigration. Right?

GLENN: Uh-huh. Yeah.

STU: You have to be tempted --

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: -- mid-speech to send a crew in there from ICE, and to remove her from this country, in the middle of a sentence.

GLENN: So, in other words, Ms. Mateo, assuming that is her proper pronoun, she is giving a speech, and all of a sudden the doors are kicked in on each side. And ICE maybe grapples down from the ceiling. And grabs her and flies her to Mexico.

STU: There's no reason to damage a door in this process.

GLENN: I think Donald Trump might say, you know, I kicked the door open. Even if it's open, lock it and knock it down.

STU: It's one thing, that we've talked about -- the Dreamers. We've talked about all these groups with all these wonderful names. All these wonderful people from other countries, who just couldn't make it in their own. And have made it -- no -- no issue of their own. No fault of their own. They're just here.

Look, that is one thing. And obviously, Donald Trump has supported DACA. He's a guy who has been -- he's had some sympathies for those arguments. Right? When you are -- when you are flaunting it so badly, that you have broken the law, that you're doing something illegal, that you would enter a -- the first ever state representative or whatever it is, to go into an actual state government role and then have it publicized in multiple news stories and tell everyone on earth where you're going to be every minute of the day. That is really a finger in the face of the president, of the border guard.

GLENN: Oh, my. Of the United States of America.

STU: Of the United States of America. And the legal system.

GLENN: So just one more thing, just to point out that, you know, not only is she here illegally and she's now serving as an illegal in the state government, she is -- she's also the one who played a key role in helping a group of people known as the Dream Nine. Do you know the Dream Nine?

STU: I don't know the Dream Nine. I know Ocean's 8, I don't know the Dream Nine.

GLENN: I didn't watch one through eight, but the Dream Nine were nine people that were returned to the US after being deported to Mexico.

So ICE came in, deported them, and she helped them come back into the country.

STU: Wait. How do you --

GLENN: I don't know if it happened in the middle of the night. I don't know how it happened. But I think I'm more and more inclined to enjoy someone grappling down during the middle of her speech.

'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.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
