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.
“If you build it, they will come.”
I don’t like the idea of any of these children suffering. If the situation is as bad as they say there, I’m sure if you ask the children would they rather be here or go home, many of them would choose the trip home. Send them home, let them be with their parents in their own countries, not suffering under these horrible conditions. The leaders of these Central/South American countries and Mexico should be brought up on charges for allowing this to occur. Yes, we are Christians and as individuals we need to find the best solution for these children. Allowing these children to be transported up here as they have been is an absolute disgrace. It’s time for these scamming nations to be exposed and their leaders to be held accountable.
No more money for those nations including Mexico until they stop this. We should use every dime of their foreign aid to improve the sanitary conditions of those who are already here. Everyone else stops at the Mexican border. No more border traffic until this is resolved.
I heard from a friend today who is down there - they said the same thing - the reps stepped in, right back out - there’s not near enough toilet facilities - there’s not enough food, there’s no water m, no way to wash clothes -
they need to be fed, washed, put in clean clothes - and sent back.
They DO NOT need to die - so the oBummer and gang can say;Look what the heartless republicans have done! Would he sacrifice children to further his agenda. Of course he would.
Beck is telling the truth.
B ut you don’t want to hear. So attack the messenger.
Now go watch TV
Taking his orders from Huntsman.
So, we now pay for the children of the third world. We the taxpayer. If that is the case, then this country is dead.
GET THEIR OWN COUNTRIES TO PAY FOR IT!!!!!
Beck is a Democrat stooge. These kids have always come across the border and mostly because their parents are already here. They are not homeless. They are actually kidnap victims of Zero who is holding them hostage for the cameras.
Should we open the borders wide, then? Let them all come in?
There are eternal consequences for any sin, including that of the deliberate lawbreaking these invaders are engaged in.
Beck has, apparently, gone off the deep end.
Sorry, I feel bad for these people, but I did not bring them here, and I cannot fix their problems.
I gave up on Beck after his attack on Bundy.
Its just inconceivable to me some of the idiots who want US to pay for these kids.
WE GAVE GUATEMALA 95 MILLION DOLLARS IN 2012!!!!
Glenn seems to want to be a preacher but it’s too odd since he supports the gay agenda. Now, he uses a heartfelt message as a incentive to take advantage of people. The more children come in; they will stay. I just don’t care much for Glenn because he, like Mitt Romney, supports too many ideas which I am against. ( He really went overboard today, in my view)
What would Jesus do I wonder?
Probably go and tell the maladroit parents to sin no more.
I doubt that the God that says,
“The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it...” (Psalm 24)
cares much about borders and laws created by temporary kingdoms and empires.
He does says over and over and over that he has compassion for the widow, the orphan, and the alien.
I think he would be at the capital where all of the hierarchy is.
These “children” were bussed here for the express reason to make us look bad when we say no.
That is just one of the reasons. The main reason is to overwhelm those of us in the native population. The USA will cease to be when English-speaking, civic-minded, law-abiding Americans become the minority.
After this tsunami of illegals that the Soros Administration has unleashed upon us, we will be living in pockets here and there that are surrounded by hordes of lawless foreigners who have no desire to assimilate and no allegiance to America.
Say good-bye to the rule of law, the concept of private property, civil society, and Judeo-Christian values. The nation we all know and love will be turned to dust.
You may as well come out of the closet as a democrat. Why stop with the border children? Let’s give everybody food stamps and an Obamaphone. You’re basically saying the same things dems and commies have always said: ‘’from each according to his ability, to each according to his need’’.
You didn’t answer the question. Do you believe we should be a borderless country? It sounds like it.
What religion are you...Denomination?
Didn’t Beck just buy a big ranch down in Texas. Why doesn’t he invite the overflow invaders to live at his ranch?
