O'Reilly Calls Out Presidential Candidates Who Don't Support 'Kate’s Law'
On "The Factor" tonight, Bill O'Reilly called out the 2016 presidential contenders who have not committed to supporting "Kate's Law."
This week, "The Factor" host has highlighted the sanctuary city policy in San Francisco, where Kate Steinle was killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times.
O'Reilly is encouraging Congress to pass new legislation that would mandate a five-year federal prison sentence for illegal immigrants who are deported, but come back into the U.S. illegally.
He said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump all support "Kate's Law."
O'Reilly shared that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush have not decided if they would or would not support the petition.
"That surprised me," O'Reilly stated. "This is a vital issue. And to sit it out does not seem to be in the interest of the public. If you oppose 'Kate's Law,' tell the folks why. To say nothing is disturbing."
He added that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is also noncommittal, saying that "he does not take a position on legislation not yet written."
O'Reilly said that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee supports a law that would call for immediate deportation of illegal immigrant felons, but not "Kate's Law."
He concluded that the country is in "big trouble" if the Congress can't pass a measure as simple as "Kate's Law."
