BILL O'REILLY: The cold truth is Kate Steinle is collateral damage to the insane far-left politics that have long-corrupted the City by the Bay.
Again, dangerous people are walking around because of political correctness.
The mayor and the supervisors want to seem sympathetic to illegal aliens. That's what this is about, them and their liberal profile.
The whole thing is absolutely disgusting.
Now there is some good news, as Kate may have not died in vain.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has told The Factor he is meeting with the Senate leadership to discuss Kate's Law.
As we suggested last night, Congress should pass legislation that would impose a mandatory minimum five-year sentence on any illegal alien that is deported and then comes back.
The word mandatory is crucial. There are laws on the books now that are being ignored. Congress must write Kate's Law so if officials do not enforce the mandatory sentence, they themselves can be prosecuted.
Congressman Matt Salmon of Arizona tells us he is writing Kate's Law even as we speak.
The congressman is looking for co-sponsors, and we hope representatives from both parties will sign on.
If they do, we will tell you who they are.
If anyone opposes Kate's Law, we will absolutely tell you who they are.
Also, you can get involved. We have a petition on BillOReilly.com that supports Kate's Law. We hope you sign it, and we will forward the petition to the House and Senate leadership, as well as to the White House.
It is long past time for the Congress of the United States to protect the American people.
Every president since Ronald Reagan has not done so.
So Congress must act on illegal immigration.
This sanctuary city business has got to end.
Any American city, town or county not cooperating with Homeland Security should immediately lose federal funding. Enough is enough!
