1,000 migrants make a break for it, force border shutdown

Yesterday, an estimated 1,000 migrants from the infamous "migrant caravan" stormed the border and threw rocks and bottles at U.S. border agents. In response, U.S. agents fired tear gas at the crowd, which gave the media the drama they've been craving, so they could write lines like this from the Associated Press: "Children screamed and coughed in the mayhem of the tear gas."

The headlines might as well have been: "Evil America Tear-Gases Babies."

Apparently, yesterday morning, a group of Central Americans who are fed up with conditions in the migrant camps in Tijuana, held a rally urging the U.S. to speed up its asylum claims process. Currently, the U.S. is processing 60 to 100 migrant asylum applications per day.

However, as the march veered toward the border, around 1,000 decided to make a break for it. They pushed past a Mexican police blockade and tried to squeeze through wire and scale fences. As a result, the U.S. temporarily closed the border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana.

A lot of the migrants' impatience stems from a pending deal between the U.S. and Mexico over how to deal with asylum seekers. In the past, asylum seekers have been allowed to remain in the U.S. while their cases are processed in U.S. courts. However, the Trump administration wants the caravan to stay in Mexico while their cases are processed. Yesterday's protesters hope to make their asylum case in person to U.S. agents before this potential deal takes effect.

That sounds heart-wrenching and all, but the fact remains that the 1,000-plus migrants who rushed the border yesterday are trying to expedite the legal process by breaking the law.

Here's the truth – America is not heartless, but it is, at least for the time being, still governed by the rule of law.

Sorry, but there's no magic wand solution for an immigration crush like this. Yes, the asylum application process is going to be slow when a mob of 6,000 people show up at the border at the same time. Most other countries would be just as slow or slower, if they considered the applications at all. Frankly, most countries would've already closed their border and turned away this caravan a long time ago.

Here's the truth – America is not heartless, but it is, at least for the time being, still governed by the rule of law. That means trying to crash through the border fence is not the way you immigrate to the U.S. (no matter how much the left would like it to be).

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

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.
