Kate's Law, Donald Trump and Ben Carson

As we predicted here on The Factor, Democrats in the Senate blocked a vote on Kate's Law today.

That's the bill that would impose a mandatory five-year prison sentence for any illegal immigrant convicted of an aggravated felony who returns after being deported.

The reason the Democrats blocked Kate's Law is that it was attached to defunding sanctuary cities, which the left does not want to do.

Foolishly, instead of simply voting straight up on Kate's Law, the Senate put both pieces of legislation together.

Everybody knew that would doom the vote.  Everybody knew that, yet the Republicans did it anyway.

That's what makes Americans furious with the political system in Washington.

On Gretchen Carlson's program today Senator Rand Paul actually tried to justify the situation, which is just another reason why he will never be president of the United States.

The truth is politicians are playing games with your safety:

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV), SENATE MINORITY LEADER: "Democrats believe local communities and local law enforcement are better judges of what keeps their communities safe than Donald Trump or Bill O'Reilly.  The safety of our neighborhoods and local communities should not be a pawn for Republicans' latest gambit to hide their failure to act on comprehensive immigration reform."

Senator Reid, the poster boy for anarchy, could not care less about the death of Kate Steinle.

All he cares about is complete amnesty for undocumented immigrants.

Now this is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead in the Republican polling.

A recent CNN poll has it this way:

  • Trump 27%
  • Carson 22%
  • Marco Rubio 8%
  • Jeb Bush 8%

Everyone else is five percent or below.

NBC-Wall Street Journal: 

  • Trump 25%
  • Carson 22%
  • Rubio 13%
  • Ted Cruz 9%
  • Jeb Bush 8%
  • Carly Fiorina 7%

Everybody else is below five percent.

It is obvious that many Americans are fed up with politics as usual and want to crush the current system.

Both Trump and Carson support Kate's Law and would not play political games with it.

There comes a point where the American people are going to have to take back their government.

When a 32-year-old woman can be gunned down by an illegal felon who had been deported five times and you cannot get a strict law punishing illegal alien felons ... when that happens you really don't have a functioning government.

It is hard to believe, but the far-left in America is actively opposing Kate's Law.

A recent editorial in the New York Times actually sympathized with the man who killed Kate, quote:

"Mr. Lopez-Sanchez was a homeless man with drug convictions but no record of violent crime; the bullet he fired was found to have ricocheted off the pier, suggesting that he had not targeted anyone. The suggestion that it was a horrific accident could well be true."

Here's the truth: Juan Lopez-Sanchez was convicted of seven felonies in the USA, including selling hard drugs.

He defied deportation five times, he broke into a car, stole a gun and recklessly fired that gun in the public place.

Yet he is portrayed as a homeless man who might have just committed an accident.


Finally, I am not giving up.  Senator Charles Grassley, a hero on Kate's Law, is trying to get a standalone vote.

SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY (R-IA): "Thanks to many people, including TV's Bill O'Reilly, for keeping this issue constantly before the people of this country.  This part of the bill?named by Bill O'Reilly and commonly referred to as Kate's Law? has become so important to many Americans."

We will see if Grassley's quest will finally lead to justice in the United States Senate.

But if it does not, we will confront the villains no matter which party harbors them.

And that's the memo.
