The Unacceptable Cost of America's Failure to Control Its Borders

Illegals: The Unacceptable Cost of America's Failure to Control Its Borders

I live in Arizona. More on that in a minute, but first: According to the latest research by the “Pew Research’s Pew Hispanic Center” eight percent of the four million babies born in America last year were born into families with parents who are in America illegally. Or, to put it another way, 1 in 15 babies born here have at least one illegal parent. While the bleeding heart cry babies insist that no one is illegal and that we should make it easier to cross our borders while creating an open door policy for all immigrants may I remind you that every person who has cheated to come here is also cheating citizens on a daily basis.

“But, we’re all immigrants,” is always the retort. Um, yeah, okay. And your point is? Go ahead repeat that line out loud—because those who utter the words don’t have a single clue about our history or the definition of Sovereignty. “But we stole this country from the Indians.” (Feather not dot.) We stole the entire nation from Native Americans? Absurd. First who makes up the “WE” in statement? Whites? Blacks? Asians? Hispanics? (Hispanic is a term created by President Jimmy Carter by the way.) Second, in the early 1700’s this country was cut up into sections by the English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, and Danish so most historians agree that not only Indians occupied the land.

Over the years, as this country stabilized and struggled towards sovereignty, money and battles brought to life the strongest and greatest nation in the history of the world. As we developed and grew, the leaders we voted to represent us followed our Will and created states that worked with each other and an overall Federal government that worked to create laws we asked for and a border that made us all “fellow citizens.”

Okay, now that I’m finished with entry level history may I ask bleeding hearts what they don’t understand about the word “Illegal?” If you have six people in your family and I barge into your home and demand to be the seventh none of you would tolerate it. Currently, millions of people from 52 nations have barged into our American family and demanded to stay with the majority of them stealing our jobs, killing our hospitals and corrupting our laws. Now is either the time to roll over, play dead and let the victor take the spoils or it’s time to resist the invasion.

Okay, as I mentioned, I live in Arizona—about two hours from our southern border. I went to Mexico, jumped back into America illegally, wandered the desert and wrote a book about it and I can vouch for the fact that we are absolutely ground zero in the illegal immigration debate and the more we try to fight the attack (The majority of the invaders from the 52 nations use our southern border to get here.) the more Arizonans are cajoled, ridiculed and made the butt of news reader jokes. I guess if you lived in a state that is nearing bankruptcy you would join our fight, not laugh at it. I suppose if you lived in Phoenix where our insurance rates are through the roof because we are #1 in stolen vehicles—with most heading south you would express empathy. Oh, yeah, and we’re #1 in kidnappings in America and #2 in the world—THE WORLD!

So, when we create yet another law, SB1070, to try to put some teeth into the issue we are struck down by activists and judges. What’s funny is that our law was nearly identical to a federal law that no one would enforce. Can you spell politically correct? “Darrell, we can’t enforce that law because it may hurt people.” I know the law and there is nothing that will cause pain to anyone. It just helps police officers do their jobs more efficiently. “But it’s profiling Darrell!” If an officer pulls a person over who is driving a car without current plates, out-of-date registration, a drivers license that looks questionable and can’t speak the language wouldn’t that person cause you to have questions? Shouldn’t you, as a law enforcement person be allowed to investigate further?

I can hear it now, “Ankarlo supports profiling!” Nope. But I have always believed in good old logic and common sense—especially when it impacts something as important as our Sovereignty. When I think of all the brave men and women who have fought to protect it during our almost 250 years I am incensed by the people so willing to chuck it all under the guise of “we’re all immigrants.”

Now is not the time for the faint-of-heart. Now is the time for “We the People” to fight back like never before. Arizona’s SB1070, certainly the Will of the People of our state was stopped by a judge. Oklahoma, South Carolina, Florida and Utah are among the states creating new immigration laws. Each will be protested and wind up before a judge. Even California’s Prop 8, a law that had majority vote was stopped by a judge. These are states exercising their rights as a state. We have already fought one civil war over this very issue.

Now, Republicans in Congress are considering revising the Constitution so that anchor babies don’t get citizen status—something I’ve spent 15 years asking our leaders to do. In each case, the laws get blocked, go to court and land at the US Supreme Court, a court that is now decidedly liberal so guess who loses? And, with a liberal president, senate and house, is there any doubt how decisions will continue to be made, changed and adjudicated? As an average American family man just trying to get by I feel like the process has evolved into one that intentionally tries to exclude me. Forces are trying to muffle my voice—and yours too!

I have no issues with guests who come to our country to visit or immigrants who work within our systems to become citizens. I do have major problem with those who sneak in and then take my job, drive up health care, destroy our school system and demand citizen status—after all, “no person is illegal.”

I in invite those who ridicule to come on over to Arizona and live for a while. I can guarantee that even the bleeding hearts will secretly wish something would be done!

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."
