Skip to comments.Glenn Beck: This is probably the hardest thing I have ever asked of you (For the children!)

Glenn and TheBlaze have been covering the growing crisis at the southern border for a number of weeks now. With the situation further deteriorating, Glenn came before his audience on Monday morning with an interesting ask. In fact, Glenn described what he was about to say as the hardest thing he has ever asked for. But as he shared troubling new information about the humanitarian crisis at the border, Glenn asked his listeners to consider donating to Mercury One.
Im not going to tell you who is giving me this information because things down at the border are extraordinarily difficult and not what you are being told it is. The Administration and I believe this also includes the progressives Republicans are trying to keep the lid on the media right now. And the churches are the ones who are pulling peoples feet out of the fire. Our state reps now have gone and toured the facilities that are happening in Laredo, Brownsville, Van Horn, McAllen, and all across the border. This one particular facility that I want to talk to you about holds 400 people but currently it has 1,200 kids in it. Some of them are toddlers. 1,200. 400 is what the max capacity is.
Let me ask you: How fast would the federal government or the state shut you down if you had anything that said maximum capacity 400, and you had 1,200 people if there? Three times the amount. Is anybody seeing a problem with this? The federal government is breaking their own laws and they are keeping this information from us.
I am told by people who have toured and work at this facility that when they open the doors to go in, the stench is so bad the politicians that were to go in gagged and backed out. One of the churches is planning on converting their entire church, the largest in the area, to become a holding facility because of how bad things are. Things are so desperate right now, hygiene and food are the number one problem. Clothes are further down the list. They need portable showers and Port-A-Johns. They have no way to wash their clothes. They need food and hygiene care right now. Many of them have not eaten in days. FEMA is supposed to be down there. They are not down there.
Today, I want to appeal to you. I want you to just think about this, please. The two citizenships that we hold. We will destroy our country if we only recognize the citizenship that we have in our country. If the Constitution of the United States of America is our god, then we are lost already. Our God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Our God demands certain things from us. He demands us to see each other. He demands that we help each other. He demands that we help the child. We help the suffering. We are the Good Samaritan.
There are some who are going to say, Im not going to help the people. They came across the border. Well, okay, but theyre here now. Theyre on our border. Yes, some of them may be MS-13. Thats a different argument. We can sort out whos who after we take care of people. Thats for the government to do. Im not talking about were going to send them into our cities.
When he does that, I turn to another station--usually music, since the quality of morning "conservative" talk radio in my area is so low.
Oh they’ll be reunited. You and I will pay for their parents to join them!
Then in 10 years, you’ll be waiting in an Obamacare death panel line and two obese Hondurans will cut in front of you. Surprise surprise! You paid for their first class flights here.
That is an excellent plan. We can’t send the “kids” home, but we can send them to the next best place. Their embassies.
I was a Beck fan for a while. The last couple of years I haven't supported him, but I haven't been against him.
Now I'm against him.
and Glenn Beck will probably want me to donate to it too.
I’ll gladly pay for a bus ticket back.
FU Bent Beck.
GTH and burn....
Fine, feed them, immunize them and then deport the kids. We cannot afford to give them free schooling, free medical care and raise them.
We can do both - take care of them now... make sure they’re fed, clean and safe... AND send them back when it can be done without hurting anyone.
Laz = Fonz....
No, he isn’t. Larson is a phony. Glenn is simply wrong, but I’m not going to throw him to the lions b/c I strongly disagree with him on this. The guy has a big heart which sometimes grows even larger than his ample brain.
We cannot allow our decency and compassion to be used against us, b/c in excess, it will destroy us. Bob
“Hey, here we go now everybody got their orders. We’re pullin’ down the fences and we’re openin’ the borders. Send home ten billion pasos only costs a couple ‘quarters... AAAAAHHH IMMIGRATION!”
Glenn is wrong a lot, like his embrace of the homosexual agenda
glenn has been swimming in the deep end ever snce the mormon conversion, and a bit efore that.
glenn, the soution is to feed them and send them back. not keep them here. not with you. proud not to be with you.
If the vermin are crossing, airplanes fly south as well as north. Put them on airplanes and return them ASAP.
It cost me $12 to send money to my brother by Western Union, but sending it to Mexico would have been free.
If the people that they brought in here purposely to usurp my country die, then thats too damn bad.
I do not feel for them.
I have had it with this crap.
I agree with all of your wrote, well stated.
These criminal scum are purposely out to destroy our Republic. These aren't innocent souls. They are criminals.
We need to completely seal our Southern border.
We need a new Operation Wetback. We need to find and deport every single illegal -- even if it takes us 50 years -- Never stop.
If these illegal scum are not stopped, they will absolutely destroy our Republic and turn it into a decaying third world sewer.
Don’t ask me after spending 18 Trillion dollars, for me to care to house and feed invaders. In fact I want all enablers arrested and drop shipped back over the border as well.
He has always had issues.... long before his TV days too
I think there also an unforgivable sin; committing suicide.
God is not for this. I don’t believe he would be and can’t rationalize how he might.
