BILL O'REILLY: As you may know, the Factor has taken the lead in trying to convince Congress and President Obama to pass Kate's Law after 32-year-old Kate Steinle was shot dead by an illegal alien felon who had been deported five times.
O'REILLY: Now, I've spoken to many senators asking why Kate's Law cannot have a stand-alone vote. There are a variety of excuses, but bottom line, it's more about party politics than protecting the folks. For the record, Senator McConnell would not take my call. Neither would Senator Dianne Feinstein, a leading Democrat. Those two Americans could make Kate's Law a reality, if they have the will. McConnell and Feinstein are the folks we must persuade, we the people must persuade them if you can believe it. So you may want to contact their offices and tell them that Kate's Law deserves a stand-alone vote. We posted their information on billoreilly.com, please let them hear from you loud and clear.
O'REILLY: So, I don't know if McConnell is a villain or not, but I do know this. He knew I wanted to talk to him, Senator Grassley told him, McConnell, I wanted to talk to him, and he wouldn't pick up the phone to call. So now I'm asking everybody in the United States to call McConnell.
O'REILLY: So we'll see where it goes from here, but I wanted everybody to know that we're doing what we can, now it's your turn. McConnell and Feinstein, let them know what you think.
