Fiery 'You're an Activist!': O'Reilly and Jorge Ramos Clash on Illegal Immigration
On "The O'Reilly Factor," Bill O'Reilly and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos got heated while discussing illegal immigration and what role journalists like Ramos should have in the debate.
Ramos asserted that a border wall between the United States and Mexico is not the answer to illegal immigration.
Ramos, who recently confronted Donald Trump at a campaign event, pointed out that 40 percent of illegal immigrants come into the country legally and overstay their visas. He added that the border wall would cost $20 billion.
O'Reilly asked how Ramos can cover illegal immigration in an impartial way when he's a proponent of amnesty.
"I'm just a reporter," Ramos said.
"You're not. You're an activist!" O'Reilly replied. "Why don't you just become like me, a commentator? You're not a newsman anymore. You're an advocate now."
"I'm not criticizing you for your stand. I'm saying you're in the wrong job. Be a commentator."
