A massive illegal immigrant settlement has sprung up right outside of Houston, Texas, and Glenn is on the ground to investigate. Glenn calls in live from Colony Ridge, which he has dubbed "the world's largest and most dangerous trailer park." This community, which is about the size of Miami, has become a hotbed for the cartel after developers started selling flood-prone plots to illegal immigrants. Prosecutors have refused to prosecute crimes, police officers see no point in keeping the law, and the developers are rigging the entire housing market, Glenn claims. And shockingly, Glenn has found ties between the community's developers and the Governor of Texas. But this kind of shady activity is not just happening in Texas. Glenn warns, "it's happening all over the country."
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
PAT: Pat and Stu for Glenn today. Because Glenn -- I guess he didn't realize, that the show actually happens. On Mondays now. On Mondays. About this time, every Monday.
STU: Where is he supposed to be on Mondays? Anywhere at once?
PAT: Sitting where I am right now.
STU: In this room? On Mondays.
PAT: Yeah. Isn't that weird? I guess it's fairly new. And he's not used to it, yet. Is that what happened you're not used to the new schedule change?
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. No. Some of us have been working this weekend. We're working through the night. I am actually down in Liberty County, Texas.
We're doing a new Blaze documentary for January. And the researchers and Jason has been down here. And they're going to be here for a week. I'll be back on the air tomorrow.
But I'm just getting -- I'm just getting ready for a full day of looking at world's largest trailer park. The world's most dangerous trailer park.
It's a -- it's an area called colony ridge.
You might have read about it. There's been a couple of stories out, about this unbelievable cartel-run community, if you can.
It is the size of Miami. And it's all illegals. And I know nobody is illegal.
What's happening here is, you've got a county of about 70,000 people.
And in the middle of it, it's 30,000 acres. It's in a flood zone.
And some developers bought it all up.
And they are selling it to illegals.
And here's -- this is -- I mean, you're talking about a change in elections, just with this county.
You're talking about corruption at gangs. They've had body dumps there.
Massive drugs going on. For a community now, of 70,000, there are only six to eight police officers.
And beyond that, the prosecutor for some reason, won't prosecute, any -- anybody in Colony Ridge.
So cops don't have a reason to go in. Because nobody is going to jail.
We don't know why.
We have a place where the developers have dumped 40,000 gallons plus of raw sewage into the local creeks.
Nobody does anything.
They're charging credit card interest rates. So it's $500 down.
For 300,000-dollar house.
It's $500 down. And then your monthly payment. But here's the good news.
You have an interest rate between 20 and 30 percent.
The more defaults happened in Colony Ridge, than any place else.
And what happens? They default. The developer, which is providing all the loans at such a low, low price, he then repossesses the house and sells it again.
It is an absolute nightmare. And it's happening, not just here.
It's happening all over the country.
This -- this community, is almost, and will be in a few months, almost the size of Grand Rapids.
STU: Wow. And, Glenn, something of that scale does not pop up overnight. It's not like, okay. A few people have come across the border.
This is something that has gone on for a while. Why hasn't anyone done anything about it so far?
PAT: It's an interesting question. I -- we have reached out to the governor, we have asked for an interview with the governor.
This isn't going to make us more popular with our own Texas governor, but we have reached out.
We can't seem to coordinate our schedules, darn it.
But what's interesting is, the brother is -- it's two brothers that are running this. I will be doing an interview today, with the main brother. The guy who is really responsible for this.
But his partner. His other brother happens to be one of the governor's biggest donors.
Given our governor in Texas, over a million dollars in his campaign.
Which is I'm sure a complete coincidence!
PAT: How far is this -- how far is colony ridge from Houston?
It's fairly close, right? Within a --
GLENN: Oh, no. It's closer than that. How far are we from Houston? We're about 20 miles.
So the -- the county -- the people who lived in that county, it's very, very red.
And this has brought in so much danger to the community.
I mean, honestly, body dumps. You're just out in the field.
You're like, oh, there's a dead body.
It's being run by the cartels.
But don't worry. The -- the Colony Ridge is hiring their own police. They're going to -- they're going to hire some of the police.
Which sounds very Chicago 1930s.
But the people who lived there, are so angry about this. They won't vote. And I wouldn't either.
They won't vote for a single bond measure. Here's the problem: You have the school growing ten students a day.
They've built -- the state has built these beautiful facilities.
But they can't hire the teachers.
They can't do anything, because the -- the former residents. The ones who live there now.
While they still live there.
I'm talking to a group of people who lived there for generations.
They're moving now. Because they can't take the crime. They can't take the problems.
They won't vote for any new teachers or anything else.
So now what happens?
I mean, this is a -- an absolute nightmare, the size of Miami.
PAT: And you mentioned that a lot of the illegals that get into these homes, lose the help me.
Then what happens to them?
Where do they wind up after that?
GLENN: That, I don't know. I will ask. That, I don't know yet. I haven't met with any of the principals yet. That's what I'm doing this morning and the rest of the day, and tomorrow.
I'll be doing the show tomorrow from Houston.
But then, I have to go back in, and interview some more -- some more people. Including Dan Patrick.
I will ask Dan Patrick.
GLENN: He's the head of our Senate.
And he's very upset about this.
PAT: I bet he is.
GLENN: He can't get anyone to do anything.
You know, the problem is, everything this developer is doing, is legal.
It's just immoral.
GLENN: Absolutely immoral.
He is building roadways that look like it's just a veneer.
I mean, we -- for a state that doesn't have hard freezes.
And then, you know, really hot temperature.
Then another hard freeze. I can't tell you why, after a year, the roads look the way they do.
They are completely broken up.
He's not -- he says, he's building them, to state standards.
And my guess is, he probably is, to the very lowest grade.
But he's then giving those roads, God bless his heart, over to the county, to maintain after two years.
I've seen the roads that have been there for a year. They will just have to be bulldozed and repaved by the county.
How is the county going to pay for that?
Because the people that are living there, don't have any money. They're not paying taxes.
STU: God. And it's really an amazing -- amazing thing.
And it's just hard to imagine, that we haven't heard more about this.
You're doing this documentary. What's the schedule on this?
I know these things take a while to put together.
PAT: So this is -- we will release it in January. This is why it's important for you to subscribe to Blaze TV.
This is not a Glenn Beck documentary.
I'm involved in this one.
But this is a Blaze TV documentary.
This is all of TheBlaze money.
And we are -- we are -- we brought in the best of the best.
To help us put this together.
They have been doing research on this, for months.
Including some members of my research staff, as well.
And they've got it so well buttoned up. You'll see it in January.
Only on Blaze TV. But it is -- I -- let me say this.
Can I say this?
STU: Usually, probably not.
GLENN: Security -- let's say. Yeah. Let's just say this.
Security on the team, is unlike anything I've seen before.
This -- this is something that a lot of people are not going to be happy, is erring.
And it's going to happen -- because this guy is doing this legally. Because he's found a way to get around everything that really matters, this is the most immoral legal thing I think I've ever seen.
And it's going to happen all over the country.
There are -- by the end of the Biden administration, there will be 10 million illegals.
In Houston, 10 percent of the population, is illegal.
PAT: Well, that's only -- that's only like a million people though.
That's not that many.
STU: That's it?
PAT: Just in Houston. Wow.
GLENN: Here's the other side of this. And I haven't gotten into this yet. We'll get into it next year when this documentary goes. But this is the way Texas is going to become, deep, deep blue.
GLENN: This -- just this population, if somebody figures out how to register or how to just collect votes from unregistered people, this would have meant just this community, could have meant that Beto was our senator, not Ted Cruz.
STU: Wow. It's amazing.
And I have seen the -- some of the schedule of what they're planning to do with these documentaries over the next year. It's aggressive. This is something you will really want to be involved in.
You will want to see these things.
It's BlazeTV.com/Glenn. Go ahead, Glenn.
GLENN: Yeah. And I will tell you, when I started Blaze TV. This is why I wanted to have the subscribers and everything else.
So we could have the money to be able to do all this.
Blaze has built itself into such a workhorse now. And really, pretty darn bulletproof. That we can actually afford to do these things. And finally, we're able to be the investigative arm. We're no longer going to wait for ABC, NBC, CBS, whatever.
They're useless. They're going to have to start answering to us.
Why aren't you covering this?
Beyond that, they keep saying, we're -- you know, oh, the right is only engaged in conspiracy theories.
More people will end up watching this, than will be watching anything on 60 Minutes.
Because people will know that this is the truth. And they will have to respond to us.
And it's about time.
STU: It is about time.
BlazeTV.com/Glenn. Is the place to go to subscribe.
If you use the code Glenn. You'll save 20 bucks off your subscription.
I think already Blaze TV is worth it.
Well worth your money. If you have the extra to spend.
It's getting better and better and better by the day.
This project from Glenn, is one of many that are coming.
I've seen some of the summaries of them.
It looks like there will be some really incredible stuff. Yeah.
GLENN: It's shocking.
This alone is shocking. And we're the first to go in, and actually do an interview with all of these people.
That are living there. Living around it.
And the guy who is responsible for it.
PAT: Yeah. I mean, I've heard very little of this. Very little of Colony Ridge.
STU: Used to do a show in Houston.
PAT: Yeah. This is just on the outskirts. There's an inner loop in Houston. There's an outer loop. And there's a really outer loop. It's just beyond that. It's so bad.
GLENN: So, Pat, this whole place is a flood zone.
PAT: Yeah. Oh, yeah.
GLENN: Already, with just the heavy Houston rains, it's almost up to your knees. People are defaulting, because they have to repair their house from the rain. Not hurricane.
From the rain.
PAT: I'm sure. I'm sure.
GLENN: This is a disaster of Biblical proportions waiting to happen.
PAT: Well, first of all, if you spit in Houston, it floods your house.
So you don't want to do that.
It's bad enough.
I can imagine the catastrophe that this place could be.
GLENN: So imagine, Pat. You've seen hurricanes here. You've seen what it's done. Imagine a brand-new community that floods during the rains, being hit by a hurricane. 90,000 people, out of a house.
GLENN: All illegal. Don't speak English. What's going to happen?
PAT: All right. Appreciate it.
GLENN: By the way, the fire department is a volunteer fire department for the county. It's got like seven guys.
STU: Amazing. All right. Glenn, it's -- by the way, BlazeTV.com/Glenn. Promo code is Glenn.
And, Glenn, if you need us to send you a copy of the show's schedule on an ongoing basis, just let us know.
GLENN: See you tomorrow.
