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!

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
