Bill O'Reilly: Kate's Law Signals to the People the 'Government Will Protect Us'

While the media obsessed over another Trump tweet, the House passed Kate's Law to the sound of crickets. Simply stated, the law makes punishes illegal immigrants convicted of a felony or three misdemeanors for returning to the U.S. after deportation. Friday on radio, Glenn was joined by Bill O'Reilly, who has been a driving force behind getting the law passed.

"Yesterday in the House, they passed Kate's Law, and a lot of people say, including me, if that passes, that will be, to a large extent, thanks to you," Glenn said.

O'Reilly hammered the story hard while at Fox News, shining a light on the subject when most in the media ignored it.

"Well, I appreciate that. It was interesting. Fox News didn't even mention my name last night as they gave it scant coverage because the tweets dominated cable news. Kate's Law is necessary to send a signal to we, the people, to every human being that resides in this country, legally or illegally, that our government will protect us. That's all it is. Yet, hundreds of Democrats voted against it," O'Reilly said.

Kate's Law will next go to the Senate for a vote. The president has voiced strong support for the law and will likely sign it if passed.
