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!

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
