Bill O’Reilly is optimistic about the possibility of “Kate’s Law” passing in Congress and being signed by President-elect Donald Trump.
One reason Trump won the presidency, O’Reilly believes, is because of his stand on illegal immigration and that he “felt the outrage over Kate Steinle,” the California woman who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant felon, Juan Lopez-Sanchez, while walking with her father on a pier in San Francisco.
Lopez-Sanchez had been deported five times and illegally entered the U.S. six times before murdering Steinle.
“How can that possibly happen?” O’Reilly said during the Talking Points segment of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. “It’s insane. And America’s at fault.”
Passing the law “will be a tremendous victory for every American citizen” as it would impose a mandatory minimum five-year prison sentence for immigrants convicted of a crime who reenter the U.S. after being deported.
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer joined O’Reilly, noting that it is “really hard to imagine a logical argument against” the proposed law.
The 2016 election was a referendum on immigration policy, he explained, and in Trump’s administration, the legislature has to “get serious” about preventing all types of illegal immigration.
Though “Kate’s Law” would affect only a small portion of the population, Krauthammer believes the passing of the law will be “very symbolic.”
“It’s a sign of things to come,” he said.
