Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) alluded to Glenn Beck's flamboyant campaign to bring soccer balls and teddy bears to tens of thousands of illegal alien children streaming across the U.S. border while urging Republicans to stow their objections to billions in border crisis funding requested by the president and pass the bill anyway.
Even some of the most conservative political commentators have said first, America, show your heart, that you care for these children. And thats what the president is asking us to do. So let us take care when we consider the supplemental appropriations bill that we dont lose sight of our values, Durbin said in a Senate floor speech.
Durbin called on Senate Republicans to use that compassion to put away their fight for another day. The political debate can be saved for another day, Durbin said on the Senate floor on Thursday afternoon. I support this legislation. I think its the right thing to do. I want history to write this chapter about America and I want it to be a chapter were proud of. I want a future generation to look back to this year and say that in this year, when the United States was presented with this border crisis with children, America showed its heart. America stood up and did the right thing for these children, as we have so many times in the past.
Beck recently traveled to Texas to bring soccer balls, teddy bears, and hot meals to illegal immigrants who have been detained along the U.S.-Mexico border, saying Americans must "open our hearts" to the illegal immigrant children who have been unlawfully entering the country.

If these kids are destined to live here — then let’s encourage them to become Americans.
So — no more soccer balls.
Effff little Dick Durban and the Horse (Glenn beck) he rode in on.
Hadn’t thought of that. Thanks for clarifying what’s strictly American and what isn’t.
And once we “open our hearts” to the tattooed, gangbanger “children”, we definitely don’t want to separate them from their families. You know, mom and pop, tias and tios, grandma and grandpa, and grandma and grandpa’s other children and all of their in-laws. Are you feeling the “love” yet?
Something bad has happened to Beck for some time now. It’s like someone kidnapped him and installed a different brain. What I suspect happened is that 0 had the FBI and the NSA do some digging on him and found some serious poop on him that if exposed would ruin him for life in the entertainment industry and then called him or had a little sit down session and had a little chat. Something isn’t right about the man anymore. He has no fire in his belly. No gusto. He’s been compromised.
Beck’s been too preachy for too long.
This latest campaign of his was the final nail for my listenership.
(not that I was that avid a listener anyway, but now I actively avoid it).
When Glenn Beck partners with Sheila Jackson Lee, there are no words!
Way to go, Beck. Frikkin’ moron.
Once again, Beck defines what it is to be a Useful Idiot.
Beck’s Teddy Bears ‘n Soccer Balls FAIL continues.
Good job Glen, help our enemies reinforce their stereotype for the uneducated Liberal Masses.
Now Glen, promote moving all the Illegals to Illinois so Durbin can take care of them.
> He became a practicing Mormon...not saying he is bad but I lost all appreciation for his views over the illegal aliens isssue..
I guess he doesn’t understand that charity should be for a good cause. He’s definitely showing a lack of discernment. It’s just bad judgment to give an alcoholic an unlimited tab.
Glenn and Durbin teaming up. Now I’ve seen it all.
