Conservative commentator Glenn Beck says his plan to help unaccompanied children who have illegally crossed the border has led to threats calling for his death.

"When America stops being good, we are no longer able to be great," he said in a video posted on his website The Blaze. Beck claims most of the children trying to illegally enter the U.S. are from Honduras, where violence is prevalent.

He plans on joining a team of religious leaders and some Republican politicians to bring trailers of food and toys to the 60,000-plus refugees at the border town of McAllen, Texas on July 19.

"Everybody is telling me I'm seeing subscriptions down; I'm seeing Mercury One donations down," Beck said. "I'm getting violent emails from people who say I've 'betrayed the Republic.' Whatever. I've never taken a position more deadly to my career than this — and I have never, ever taken a position that is more right than this."

Beck believes that despite the fact that some of the migrants have possible diseases or gang affiliations, this country should help "all those fleeing poverty and violence."

"Through no fault of their own, they are caught in political crossfire," Beck said. "And while we continue to put pressure on Washington and change its course of lawlessness, we must also help. It is not an either, or. It is both. We have to be active in the political game, and we must open our hearts."
