Bill O’Reilly Surprisingly Endorses Major Bill [Video]

Whether you love him or hate him, Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly wields a lot of influence. That’s why a group of senators have been pursuing him relentlessly for his support on a bill that is at the center of one of our nation’s biggest issues: Immigration.

On Thursday, O’Reilly threw in with immigration reform, becoming an ally in what has become a quest to just get something passed. He announced that after the completion of a new Senate deal on border security, he will be in favor of the bill’s passage.

“It is time for the USA to pass immigration reform,” O’Reilly said. “For years I’ve called for a more secure southern border, you know that. And now it looks like the secure border is in reach. At least somewhat. So I hope this bill does become law.”

The so-called “Gang of Eight” have long been pursuing endorsement for their immigration bill from O’Reilly and Fox News. The bipartisan effort needs support from both conservative and liberal bases, so that is likely why O’Reilly focused on the border control aspect of the bill in his endorsement.

According to The New Yorker, senators Marco Rubio, John McCain and others have also been speaking privately to Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto in an effort to get them on their side.

O’Reilly said that Rubio had spoken to him earlier that day.

“Senator Rubio told me on the phone today that it would be at least 13 years—13—before people in the country illegally right now could gain full legal working status, and even longer to achieve citizenship,” O’Reilly said.

Are you surprised that Bill O’Reilly supports the Gang of Eight’s immigration legislation?

    THE 1000 PAGE SENATE BILL S.477, IS NOT GOING TO BE A WINNER FOR THE 12 MILLION AMERICANS LOOKING FOR A JOB, GIVEN UP OR STUCK IN TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT?

    Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the real man of the.
    people blew the lid off whom really drafted the S.477 immigration bill behind was closed, shutters and doors.

    Sen. Sessions opened the largest can of worms possible this morning, reading from a report that the Gang of Eight and their co-conspirators didn’t write the bill, but the trade Unions, high technological companies, Dept of Commerce, trail lawyers, meat packers and poultry plants, agriculture, foreign government advisory, radical advocates as La Raza, construction and development companies, wealthy special interests cheap labor and open border maniacs deciding the enforcement laws. No members of the public, the huge and growing Tea Party or any Conservatives organizations were granted this audience. Just the lobbyist who WROTE THIS BILL, not the Senators!

    IT JUST GOES TO PROVE THIS WASN’T WRITTEN FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT TO FILL THE BANK ACCOUNTS OF BIG BUSINESS AND ALL THE OTHER INSUFFERABLE ENTITIES WHO AFFECT THE RIGHT MEASURES IN THE RULE OF LAW. WITH DISDAIN I REALIZE NOW WHY ENTERING AMERICA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INFRACTION AND NOT A FELONY? IF THIS LAW PASSES AS IS, IT WILL BE OUR DUTY AS AMERICANS TO DISCARD THESE SENATORS AND ALL THOSE INVOLVED INTO THE GUTTER WHERE THEY BELONG?

    It was beneficial to the Special Interest that the real Double layer parallel 700 mile fencing was rejected, with concertina razor wire running the top of both fences. No illegal alien should gain citizenship, until they have achieved their atonement until the end of 13 years. Many loopholes graced the senate bill, conveniently on behalf of the Special fortunate entities. There were even carefully disguised laws that would allow illegal aliens benefit from welfare program for illegal aliens. Just like the Simpson-Mazzoli bill of 1986 every person must undergo strict medical exams, learn English, and pay fines, pay back taxes and no waivers, as in the1986 amnesty fraud. No employer should escape heavy fines and prison for violating the law in 1986. Every Guest Worker must be fully vetted and investigated for criminal records back home, or they will be rejected unlike what happened in 1986. BUREAUCRAT HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JANET NAPOLITANO, ERIC HOLDER, JOHN MORTON SHOULD HAVE NO DISCRETIONARY AUTHORITY AS LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE TO ADMINISTER THE LAW. CHRIS CRAIN OF THE ICE UNION stated they have no confidence in these egotistical women, because she is not an elected official. Whereas Chris Crain border patrol agents take an oath of office, to defend America’s people and uphold the law. She allowed her supervisors at her discretionary orders to release illegal aliens with odious criminal records back on the streets. The person who is in charge should be an elected official, not another civil servant.

    As an addition to enforcement an entry and exit protocol which tracks visitors to our country at airports, shipping and ferry docks and other entrance ways must be mandatory. The Supreme Court should visit the Birthright Citizenship law, because it is giving instant citizenship to every child born of illegal aliens, which in reality should take the parents country of origin. Many other foreign countries have rescinded this law of birthright citizenship including Mexico, as United States law was for the emancipation of slaves, so their descendants could become a citizen. Let lawmakers know you are watching their every move, “A vote for De Facto amnesty means NO VOTE FOR THEM IN THE NEXT ELECTIONS!" We can cripple their phones at toll-free — 1-888-978-3094– or you may phone the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A terminal operator will connect you directly with the Senate office or just about anybody lawmaker in Congress you request. Set up your message on Twitter or Facebook and Social network as the Left is doing the same with their counterproductive ambiguous information. You can contact millions of people on these Social networks, so we can hammer away at these untrustworthy politicians who many become rich by bowing to lobbyists.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) were irate yesterday about the immigration debates, because the Democrat Senators run off even though very important amendments were pending. Both Sessions and Lees were ignored, because the Gang of Eight and all those who approved this bill behind closed doors, with. This G8 are trying to rush this immigration reform bill S.477, which as it is, will never gain a breath inside the House of Representatives, without amendments being voted on? Unless every amendment is voted on, we are head for the same closed door, middle of the night travesty as the ObamaCare insurance nightmare. Both these great Senators are worried that the G8, 4 Democrats and 4 Republicans are going to push for an up and down vote, the losers being the 12 million jobless American workers.

    Are you ready to stand with millions of American to abolish the Internal Revenue Service? The movement that began its spiraling of signatures is creating a battle plan to end this insidious agency of the government http://www.abolishirsnow.com. There is no excuse for the intimidation and abuse of Conservatives, the Tea Party, churches and religious organization. If you were going against the grain of the Obama administration and its subordinates, you could be waiting years for their tax exempt status, only to be faced with several pages of questionnaires with suspicious undertones? There is no exoneration for the Internal Revenue Service and all Americans can make this happen. We have the power of the vote and remove this stigma from our society While citizens and legal permanent residence and even some illegal migrants and immigrants have paid into the system, but its been guaranteed for decades that the tax code has been offering unique privileges in corporate welfare and special interests, including fraudulent payouts of up to $5000 dollars for children of illegal immigrants. Senator Ted Cruz has set up an email address for people to contact if they believe they were besieged by the IRS. That address is: IRSTarget@Cruz.Senate.gov. WAIT TELL THE STATEMENT GETS OUT NATIONWIDE? In a rally in Washington Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas said, “the very best solution is we need to abolish the IRS,”.
