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.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
