Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said on Thursday, July 11, that Hillary Clinton will become president in 2016 if House Republicans do not make concessions on comprehensive immigration reform.
O’Reilly, who endorsed the Senate’s immigration bill, responded on “The O’Reilly Factor” to an email from a viewer named “Nettie” who said the conservative-leaning House should not concede anything to the Senate on immigration reform. According to the Huffington Post, O’Reilly said, “When Hillary Clinton is elected president in 2016, will you say the same thing, Nettie?”
“Because that’s what’s gonna happen if the GOP does not begin to put forth smart solutions to the country’s problems,” he said.
According to the report, O’Reilly also criticized an email from a viewer named “Jim” who demanded the country secure the borders first.
“So that means federal agents will begin forcibly rounding up millions of illegal people, entering their homes and removing men, women and children, taking them to holding pens where they will be awaiting deportation. Is that your vision, Jim? Because that’s what enforcing existing laws would mean,” O’Reilly said.
