Well this changes the narrative on the border a bit

This is a twist the Left did not see coming.

For months, the Left's pet cause was opposing President Trump for his snatching of children from their parents at the border and locking them in cages (at least, that's how mainstream media presented the situation). In June, a federal judge in San Diego ordered that parents and children be reunited, and the government has complied.

But over the weekend, Reuters reported an update to this saga that throws a wrench in the narrative. Here's the twist: many Central American parents who have been separated from their children and deported, don't want to be reunited with them.

That's crazy talk, right? What parents wouldn't want to be reunited with their kids? Reuters must be using Trump supporters as their main source for this story. Actually, it's the ACLU pointing out this problem – not exactly an organization that usually counters the Left's narrative.

On Friday, an ACLU lawyer told a federal judge in San Diego that they've had "difficult conversations with the parents this week" and "As much as they want to be with their child, and it's heartbreaking, they feel it's too dangerous."

This ACLU lawyer told the judge that they've been in Guatemala trying to find the parents of 300 children currently in U.S. care, but that almost two-thirds of the parents are refusing to have their children returned to them.

According to the ACLU's court report, parents refused to be reunited with 109 out of 162 children. The ACLU says some parents who refused have older children that they fear will be recruited by violent gangs if they return home in Central America.

Our border and immigration issues are not as clear-cut as media coverage would have you believe.

Others who refused are hoping their children end up with relatives already living in the U.S.

This report proves what some of us have pointed out all along, that our border and immigration issues are not as clear-cut as media coverage would have you believe.

The whole border focus this year has been about painting the Trump administration as heartless and cruel for separating families. Yet a largely ignored part of the story is the fact that many of these families are so desperate to spare their children from the harsh realities of their home countries that they're absolutely fine with separation. As long as it means that their children get to stay in the U.S.

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.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
