GLENN: Harry Reid has said now that the GOP has lost sanity or their principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Okay. We are the only country in the world that has anchor babies and do you know why we have anchor babies? We have anchor babies because the Democrats in Reconstruction tried to say, "Oh, well, you can free the slaves, but they're not citizens. So when they have a baby, the baby's got to go back to Africa." Really, Democrats? That's that was as good as you had? That's what it was. That's why we had anchor babies. We had to put that into the Constitution so you couldn't claim that they weren't citizens. Well, now, look what it's turned into. There was no Sunset on that. Oh, wow, kind of almost like now the PATRIOT Act. It's going to turn out to be really something very, very good. So he says they lost sanity or principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship. Unfortunately for Harry Reid, there's something called an audio vault.

REID: If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that.

PAT: No.

REID: Right?

PAT: Right.

REID: Guess again.

PAT: Uh oh.

REID: If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with U.S. citizenship.

PAT: Shocking, Harry.

REID: And guarantee of full access to all public and social services this society provides. And that's a lot of services.

PAT: Yes, it is.

REID: Is it any wonder that 2/3 of the babies born at taxpayer expense, country, county run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers.

PAT: That was Harry Reid in 1993.

GLENN: Now, hang on just a second. Could you play just the beginning of that again?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just play the beginning of that.

REID: If making it illegal

GLENN: Stop for a second. Because he said recently that GOP has lost its sanity or its principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship.

REID: If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant. No sane country would do that.

GLENN: Okay, stop.

REID: Right?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. So no sane country would offer citizenship as a birthright.

PAT: And a reward for illegal aliens.

GLENN: No sane country would do that.

PAT: And yet now you're insane

GLENN: If you want to question it.

PAT: Yeah. Huh.

GLENN: Wouldn't it be nice if people like Harry Reid had principles?

PAT: It would. It would.

GLENN: You know, I say this, I say this as a member of his same faith, but he said, you know, he doesn't understand how people can be, you know, GOP if they're what did he say exactly?

PAT: If they're Hispanic I think was the

GLENN: Yeah, if they're Hispanic, he doesn't know how they can be a member of the

REID: I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay? Do I need to say more?

PAT: No, Harry, I think that's dumb enough.

GLENN: Harry, I would love to have a conversation with you because I don't know how you understand the principles of our particular faith and you are, you are doing the things that you do. Not all of them. I mean, look, I know a lot of people that I disagree with in my faith. I vehemently disagree with a lot of people in my faith on political stuff. But some of the stuff, I don't understand it. And I would love to have a conversation with him and figure out, how do you make that work.

PAT: Well, he's obviously drifted into extremism like I mean, he was against birthright citizenship in 1993. He thought it was insane.

GLENN: How did he do that?

PAT: Now all of a sudden, he is so much for it that he wants to investigate the people or he wants to disparage the people who are calling for a hearing to fix the situation. I mean, how does that even happen?

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know.

PAT: It's bizarre.

GLENN: Is he for

PAT: Bizarre.

GLENN: He was also, helped steamroll the healthcare which included abortion, and he knew it. Any sane person knew it. How do you do that? And I know he's a you know, he's a I don't question his I don't question his salvation or anything like that. I just don't know how people make those connections in their heads if you're really truly a devout member of any faith and your faith is strong against abortion, et cetera, et cetera. I don't know how he does that. Now, again I'm not questioning. I just, I would love to hear the explanation. Because people like me, I'm disparaged because I'm of the same faith as Harry Reid. And yet he gets a pass. Why? Because he's passing all the things that I happen to be against that are faith based, and I don't get it. I don't get it.

STU: It has nothing it's all about politics.

GLENN: Yeah, and I would love to hear and I mean this as an honest question. I would love to hear his explanations for those in a theological sort of way. How do you make that leap in your head

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: to be where you're at if you indeed are a practicing member of the faith. I don't understand it.

STU: And all indications are that he is.

GLENN: Oh, no, no. I know he is.

PAT: Oh, he is.

GLENN: I know he is.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
