After Phone Call with Rubio, O'Reilly Offers Full-Scale Support of Immigration Bill
Breitbart.com ^ | 6-20-2013 | Breitbart News

Posted on 06/21/2013 8:57:28 AM PDT by servo1969

Thursday night on Fox News’s "The O’Reilly Factor," host Bill O’Reilly came out in full-scale support for the immigration reform bill currently making its way through the Senate.

Despite its border security shortcomings, O’Reilly said, “it looks like the secure border is in reach – at least somewhat.” He continued, “Talking Points supports immigration reform, even though I well understand the new law will be somewhat chaotic…will be a magnet for more people to come here illegally, which is why we need stepped up security around the border.” He concluded, “I hope this bill does become law.”

Multiple Republican senators have stridently fought the notion that the immigration reform bill currently under consideration is sufficient to guarantee any true border security. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, “We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border.” Sen. John Cornyn (R-AZ) stated that his amendment, which was rejected, would have guaranteed border security, while the current version does not: “The difference between my amendment and their bill is that their bill promises the sun and the moon when it comes to border security but it has no trigger mechanism.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) explained, “I don’t think it will stop the reform waiting on border security. It allows the reforms to go ahead and tries to get border security, but I think they should be dependent upon each other. So, unless that happens, I’m not sure I can support it.”

What magic words did Rubio speak that made O'Reilly get his mind right? What is it that makes people suddenly go gaga because someone sounded convincing? Has Rubio been taking lessons from Obama? People have talked about how Obama's speeches are so wonderful, how his oratory is so great that it makes people agree with whatever he says. I don't understand why it never has worked on me. I listen to him and he sounds flat, no energy at all, like an unsalted soda cracker. I simply can't hear what other people hear, I guess. Maybe I'm tone deaf when it comes to him. Apearently Rubio is trying to be his understudy or something.

O’Reially has always been a libertarian leaning... and many times liberal, depending upon which way he thinks his ratings will go.

He is a personality... a character on TV.

He likes the cocktail parties with hookers too- he doesn’t want to get left out.

Not new, just another justification for something O’Reilly has always supported: illegal immigration. Heard him in passing the other night saying “...they’re already here!” and saying that they deserve recognition and that contribute greatly to our country and economy.

He’s also said numerous times that he believes that obama is a well-meaning, patriotic american.

He’s a self-promoting democrat tool.

Yeah, and Congress mandated hundreds of miles of secure fencing - that never got built. Excuse us for not trusting anything promised until we actually see it done first.

I watched Laura Ingraham devastate BOR last night. He was rude, obnoxious and WRONG about all that he said.

She pointed out that in 1986 we went through the same BS. And they promised back then to secure the border. 11 million illegals later they want to do the same thing.

BOR is an idiot who spins like a TOP! I watch him primarily to tear his opinions apart.

I’ve been saying since I first head the man- O’Reilly is NOT a conservative by nature. He sounds consistently like a liberal who wanted to make money talking who is smart enough to have figured out that making money is not likely as a lefty talker so he adopted a conservative stance but hd/has not the education to know all of what that entails. He gets it spectacularly wrong on occasion and when he does that and gets backlash, he either shuts up about the subject if he simply cannot understand why he went wrong, or he does a little research and discovers what he thought was correct because it accords with his natural liberal mindset was off and then he apologizes and redirects (once) or he hammers down on it and insists that his view is the CONSERVATIVE view and everyone else better come around to his view, and some do.

Ted Baxter supporting amnesty is no surprise. It's unfortunate that his time slot gives him the highest rated show on Fox News. Apparently a lot of inadequately informed viewers think he's smart (ha!) and conservative (double ha!). He's always been left of moderate.

Rubio advocating amnesty is not a surprise, though it is an embarrassment. Yesterday I heard on one of the talk radio shows that a large Tea Party group in Florida is looking for a candidate to primary Rubio. I wish them luck.

What has surprised me is Rand Paul turning out to be an open borders, amnesty-loving, large L libertarian who doesn't give a crap what his policies do to our economy. I hoped we'd seen the backside of that brand of lunacy when his father retired. No such luck.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) explained, “I don’t think it will stop the reform waiting on border security. It allows the reforms to go ahead and tries to get border security, but I think they should be dependent upon each other. So, unless that happens, I’m not sure I can support it.”

He's not sure. Moron.

Ever since bill gave an interview to Obama during the Republican debate, I knew his heart belonged to daddy.

This is another thing that daddy really wants, and he'll get it anyway he needs too.

imo, bill's just helping to make sure the republicans take a well deserved bruising for it.

Vote-crazed Dems and deranged, legacy-driven Ohaha are in collusion w/ Mexico, making deals for aye votes in exchange for hyphenate votes at the ballot box. O will x-out any provisions that interfere w/ his plans.

As I posted earlier:.....why do we taxpayers have to worry about border security AND foot the bills for it? When does Mexico step up to the plate? After all, they are the ones who will be pocketing zillions in US tax dollars (foreign aid and other giveaways power-crazed Ohaha can dream up). Vote-crazed Dems are gonna turn on the tax tap full force.

LYING IN WAIT The "pressure groups" Mexico threw over the border are lying in wait----conniving to exchange hyphenate votes for tax dollars.

Taxpayers demand oil-rich Mexico vamoose-o the cantinas and the senoritas, and police their own borders.

I love Bill O’Reilly threads. Very few people on the left stir up the white hot vitriol on FR as Bill. We've seen, RINO’s, sellouts, weasels, traitors trolls and DC swamp fever victims. But few can rival Bill for being supremely smug, condescending and laughably wrong all at the same time.

It wasn't that the pompus ass didn't get it, it was he wouldn't listen to a word she said. O'Reilly is in the tank. Ingraham asked him 2 or 3 times about the CBO numbers of dropping wages and rising unemployment. He wouldn't answer. Because he has no answer. That or he likes his little illegal mexican maids that do what he wants out of fear of deportation. Then he interviews a pillar of Constitutional reverence...Jeff Flake. Ole Bill has jumped the shark.

We don't want 'immigration reform'. We want IRS reform. We want DOJ reform. We want ANSWERS to why 0bama abandoned Americans to die in Benghazi. We want gov't profiling and intimidation of conservatives for their beliefs to STOP. We want a return to the rule of law and NOT the rule of a Dictator!

I have always maintained that the hypocrisy in/of the illegal immigrant debate is shown by the fact that the USA does not put the squeeze on Mexico to really seriously stop their citizens from violating national borders. It is known that Mexico rolls in the money from the illegals. Of course a driving force for all this Mexican take-away is NAFTA which was a Bush favorite. It is good to have found a mate from another nation but it is not good for the USA when the other nation is given opportunities that persons in the USA are deprived of.
