GLENN: How is it that immigration reform, when you have a law that says government, do your job, that you can't do. But you can have immigration in cities that says, by the way, I don't care what the federal law says; we're not doing it. How is it that no one has brought that up? How is it that we don’t file suit against New Haven, Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, New York.

PAT: Not only is New Haven, Connecticut a sanctuary city but they also issued special cards to illegals, right?

GLENN: Yeah, they issue IDs.

PAT: Interesting.

GLENN: I would really like to know that. And I would also like to know, and I've had this conversation with Judge Napolitano over and over again, but I'm sorry, I don't buy into it. They always say, well, we decided state rights in the 1860s. Excuse me? Yes. For slavery. Yes, we did. For slavery. But there's a difference between slave ---- well, maybe there's not. Because I contend we are on the same -- we're having the same argument except in reverse. Illegal immigration is slavery. You are enslaving people.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: These giant corporations, the government is doing it for voters. The corporations are doing it for cheap jobs. They don't have to provide healthcare. They don't have to provide anything. They can screw with these people any way they want, put their hands in a meat grinder. Oh, really? What are you going to do? It's slavery!

PAT: And it's too late now but if we would have approached the problem in that way from the very beginning, we would have won this argument a long time ago.

GLENN: It's not too late. It's not too late. The churches must teach the truth. And not about politics. It couldn't be about you know what's really strange to me is, have you noticed that they don't ever this occurred to me last night. They don't ever attack me as a libertarian and no one ever points out how much I pissed off the conservatives and the Republicans during the Bush administration. I mean, Pat, you remember. We had program directors tell us, you can't do this, you can't come out against George Bush, you can't excuse me? I'm sorry. I'm going to be true to who I am and the values that I hold. "You're going to lose the whole audience!" Well, if I lose the whole audience, then the audience is stupid. That they can't handle that we disagree on things. I don't believe that of my audience. As it turns out, we were right. But you notice they never say that because they must make this about Republicans and Democrats. Again it's what the Weather Underground manifesto talked about, politicize everything. So it's just about Republicans versus Democrats, instead of principles. We must break out of that cycle as human beings. We must not be about the Republicans or the Democrats. We must be about principles and values because that's the way you can that's the only way you can win this. Because it is about slavery. Now we're saying the state has a right to survive and chase not only the people who are coming in illegally and causing all kinds of problems but also going after those who are enslaving people, that the state has a right to survive. What is the president of the United States doing? He has made the Constitution into a suicide pact. Am I wrong on that? California, you tell me. What is crippling you well, besides progressive policies and overspending in absolutely every front and the environmental things that you're doing and

PAT: I guess a better question would be what isn't crippling you.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: All their policies.

GLENN: What is crippling your hospitals? What are crippling your schools?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Illegal immigration.

PAT: Judicial system.

GLENN: Judicial system, prison system. You don't have enough resources to deal with these things. You don't have it. And so what's happening? You are going to implode. Well, by the federal government not doing what is on the books - you don't need comprehensive reform! You need to enforce the laws.

PAT: Look what's happening right now in Arizona. It just barely took effect yesterday supposedly and already it was working! Already people are self deporting. They are picking up their stuff and they are going home.

PAT: Everybody says, how are we going to ship all these people --you don't have to.

GLENN: They go away. They go away. And let me tell you something. How do you get rid of the big businesses that are hiring people, you know, illegals because they think that you need a salad that is a dime cheaper? You don't have to have this. You start prosecuting people and I mean, put these people out of business. You knowingly, knowingly hire illegals; you should be fined. You knowingly hire illegals a second time after you've been fined; you should be put out of business. Period. You should be put out of business. Or you should go to jail, or whatever it is. We can come as a society to rational, reasonable things, but you don't hire illegal aliens to run your business because you can get it done cheaper.

Now, I know how difficult it is to get people to do manual labor. I know. That's the other side of this problem. Is that you can't get workers. They will say, you can't get workers to do. I know. Try to get a neighbor kid like I used to be, mow the lawn for the neighbors. Do you remember, is it just me that used to take their lawn mower and you'd go to neighbors' yards and you'd say, can I mow your lawn? And you had a job mowing your neighbor's lawns? That was your summer gig! You mowed lawns. Try to get kids to do that now. Can't? Well, that's not a problem with illegal aliens. That's a problem with us. That's a problem with us as moms and dads. That's saying manual labor is beneath them, that they shouldn't do that, they should go do something else. Tell your kid to go mow the lawn. And you know what? Tell your kid to go mow the lawn for the needy people, the old lady down the street or whatever, tell them to go do it for free. Do it because it's the right thing to do. Do it and don't take any credit for it. Just go do it. We don't do that anymore. I mean, it's a whole societal issue here. But I'm sorry, I don't understand the Constitution being a suicide pact. I don't understand how a state has to financially self implode because the government won't do their job. States have a right to survive.

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
