After considering how porous the U.S.-Mexico border is and how lenient officials are about illegal immigration, Glenn Beck took a moment Tuesday to sympathize with the motives of those crossing into the U.S., saying he would do the same.
“I got news for you, at 25 years old, if my wife is pregnant and we’re living in Mexico, I would say to her, ‘Let’s go to America where we can have a good life, because they don’t care'” the radio host said on “The Glenn Beck Program” Tuesday morning.
“I would rather clean a house in America, and work in somebody’s yard in America, than in Mexico, because in America if I start mowing a lawn I could then own the lawn company and then I could send my kids to college and it’s over in one generation,” he continued.
Adding, “The only thing that would stop me [from immigrating illegally] would be the judgment — I would say, ‘Will there be a judgment of God upon me.’"
“And if it’s a speeding ticket — and that’s what our government has said, ‘this is [equivalent to] a speeding ticket’ — the judgment of God is not coming on me for a speeding ticket," he said. "[S]o, I got news for you, if I was in Mexico, I would probably do the same thing if the country is saying it is a speeding ticket.”
