GLENN BECK: You know, I feel bad for the president, because he is trying to fight something at the border, but that's not where the problem is. The problem in -- as I lay this out in a chalkboard -- we have done about a year's worth of research on this, the problem is actually coming from Chicago. There is a group, a family that has a United Methodist Church, they are preachers, they are the ones that started the sanctuary city.
They are directly getting money from George Soros and others, and they are the ones that are, if I may quote, "they are the ones that help charter the routes, arrange bus transportations, and negotiate with Mexican officials to provide protection" -- that's from the AP. But when you find out who these people are, let me -- let me quote another -- this, I think, is from UC San Diego. They said, "These latest members, a zealous group of college students, community organizers, young professionals, strove to lead and build national immigrant rights movement, vis a vis CASA. Informed by far-left politics, Marxist-Leninist thought, a communist ideology based on the theories of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin with an international worldview, they are calling for collective mobilization."
I lay this all out on a chalkboard, so -- where you can really follow it and see what's going on --
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let me ask you this --
BECK: Mr. President, please, you are not going to solve the problem at the border. I know that seems rational, but when you look at the evidence -- we can't fight the enemy if we won't call them by name, and these are communists. American communists in Chicago, that are taking loads of money from George Soros and others. They are orchestrating this. And what they are doing now is a human wave. It was a tactic used in China -- or by China, against us, in the Korean War, where they just throw wave after wave after wave of people until you just can't fight it anymore.
HANNITY: Well, the book, but certainly --
BECK: And Chuck Schumer and all of the others, they know about it, and they are covering and encouraging this. This is an assault on the republic.
