Fiery WATCH: Reporter Ejected from Immigration Rally for Asking About Kate's Law
A reporter asking questions about Kate’s Law was told to leave a pro-immigration rally in Colorado last week.
Dan Joseph, a reporter from MRC TV, says he was simply trying to gauge people's awareness of Kate’s Law, a bill proposed by Bill O'Reilly that would would impose a five-year prison sentence on illegal immigrants who are deported, but come back into the U.S. illegally.
The measure has recently become a hot-button issue on Capitol Hill. Sen. Harry Reid blocked a vote this week, a move that O’Reilly called “a blight on American politics."
Kate’s Law is named after 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, who was shot and killed in San Francisco this summer by a Mexican immigrant who had been deported five times.
In the reporter’s interviews, shown this morning on “Fox and Friends,” Joseph is seen asking: “Have you ever heard of Kate’s Law?”
None of the participants at the rally knew about the law or its namesake, Joseph later reported.
He got another surprise when a man approached him, telling him to leave.
“You will no longer ask those questions,” the man says. “You’re not welcome here to guests.”
