Glenn Beck: I Don't Think Conservatives Will Win Fight Against Open Borders
After passing out soccer balls and teddy bears to illegal immigrant juveniles at the border, Glenn Beck declared on Monday that he did not think conservatives will win the fight against illegal immigration and open borders.
“I have to tell you, I’m gravely concerned because I don’t think we’re going to win this immigration battle,” Beck said on Monday, according to Mediate. “I really don’t. I think it’s going to go the way it always does. Because they’re [liberals] going to win the PR battle. And the president is going to change the subject and he’s going to make it about impeachment.”
He then said that Obama, whose administration has been reeling from the pressure from the border crisis, wanted to change the subject and declared that no "serious" Republican in Washington is considering impeachment.
"Do you think anybody in Washington is serious about impeachment?" Beck asked. "Have you spoken to anyone that have given you an indication that they are for impeachment?"
Rep. Steve King (R-IA), though, predicted that the House would start impeachment proceedings if Obama enacts more grants of temporary amnesty through executive actions.
On Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, King told hosts Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow and Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that if "Congress fails to act" and allows Obama to destroy "the rule of law with the stroke of a pen," then there will be "enough Republicans who didn't have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.
"From my standpoint, if the president [enacts more executive actions], we need to bring impeachment hearings immediately before the House of Representatives," King said. "That's my position and that's my prediction."
King and other conservatives fighting illegal immigration have said that open borders must be fought not only to protect American workers, but to preserve the very idea of an American nation.
