Argument Against Idiots: What to do with 20 million illegal aliens

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts


The issue:

What to do with 20 million illegal aliens

What the liberal whiners say:

1. '20 million can't continue living in the shadows'


2. 'We MUST provide a path to citizenship for these people, who other than being undocumented, are just good, decent, hard-working folks'


3. 'We can't deport 20 million people, it's just not practical...even if we could, it's inhumane to separate families who have anchor children here'


4. 'Our economy won't be able to handle all these undocumented workers leaving their jobs to go back home'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. First of all, they're NOT "living in the shadows"...for the most part, we know where they live, work and go to school. It's not like they're invisible, we see them every day. Many congregate regularly at day-labor sites, right out in the open.

2. There's nothing we must do, except what's right for this country. And rewarding 20 million people who've broken our laws with citizenship is the worst thing we could do. we did it for the 2 million illegal aliens here in 1986, and the problem got worse by TEN TIMES. It's often forgotten that they're not just breaking our immigration laws. There is also nearly always at least identity fraud and/or identity theft and tax evasion too. If you're a citizen, will the government just look the other way for those crimes and say...'oh well, he's otherwise a good, decent, hard-worker'? Don't think so.

3. We cured polio, sent man to the moon, defeated Nazism and Communism, but we can't put people on a bus and send them home? Of course we could, if we had the will. But we don't need to anyway. It's been proven over and over. Enforce our laws and REMOVE INCENTIVES. It isn't nuclear physics. If there is no reason to be here, and we show that we're serious about respect for, and upholding our law, they will SELF-deport. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, shortly after the state passed tough new anti-illegal alien legislation, 15-25,000 illegals deported themselves. Tougher laws had the same affect in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Georgia, Florida and elsewhere. As for separating families with anchor children, it's the responsibility of those who've broken our laws to decide whether to take their kids back to their home countries with them, or find homes for them here. No one worries about U.S. criminals being separated from their families. Not to mention border agents, Ramos and Compean, who've been separated from THEIR families for 19 months and both have had their lives ripped apart.

4. Illegal Aliens represent about 4-5% of the workforce. Our unemployment figure is just over 5%. Hmm...full employment possibilities? Also, the exodus wouldn't happen all at once, but gradually. Not only will the illegals be replaced by those currently unemployed, but it would give our young people (our kids) who can't find employment now new opportunities. We also need to cut off welfare to able-bodied Americans, who would then be more likely to go out and earn a living.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
