Bill O'Reilly went on a tirade in support of immigration reform Thursday night, and said that if the GOP doesn't step up its performance, Hillary Clinton will be the next U.S. president.
With the words "Immigration Battle" projected in the background, "The O'Reilly Factor" host read an email from a woman named Nettie suggesting Congress should not move forward or make any concessions given the current administration.
"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," O'Reilly said.
O'Reilly then critiqued an email from a viewer named Jim suggesting that new immigration laws wouldn't be needed if the current ones were enforced.
"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," he said.
The Senate already passed a bipartisan immigration bill, leaving reform up to House Republicans.
O'Reilly has previously declared his support for the Senate immigration bill, stating in June, "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."
