One of the largest immediate threats to the safety of this nation is going down right NOW at the southern border. It's a massive threat to our national security, and a disastrous humanitarian crisis curiously engineered by the supposed "humanitarian" Left. In 2020, as Trump's immigration and border policies were running full speed, there were 345,000 encounters between Border Patrol and illegal immigrants. As of August, under Biden, the number of encounters was 1.4 MILLION … and we're not even finished with the year.
On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn asks the Biden admin: If the goal isn't to destroy America, then what IS the goal? "Fox Nation" host Lara Logan has been reporting on the border and tells Glenn the immigration system has been so dismantled by Democrats and the United Nations that effectively "there is no southern border." When the crisis dies down, the media moves on. No one really learns anything from the experience, and no practical changes are made to our border policy. We're set up to repeat the cycle all over again in a few months.
National security expert Todd Bensman hopes to end the cycle by exposing the reality beyond the headlines. He's the author of "America's Covert Border War: The Untold Story of the Nation's Battle to Prevent Jihadist Infiltration," and reveals what he saw in Del Rio, Texas. "The 50,000 coming across the border every week DWARFS the 15k" Haitian "refugees" that temporarily camped out.
And while press secretary Jen Psaki complains that Republicans are only interested in giving speeches at the border, one GOP congresswoman from New Mexico is providing solutions. Rep. Yvette Herrell has teamed up with Rep. Chip Roy on the PAUSE Act to keep COVID-19 border restrictions in place. She asks, "If Covid is that serious, then why aren't we securing our border?"
