O'Reilly: Brown's Illegal Aliens Cost Californians $25 Billion

"A third of California was not born in the U.S.A"

On his Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly accused California Governor Jerry Brown of creating a sanctuary state in California.

O'Reilly played a clip in which Governor Brown stated, "You are all welcome in California today... It wasn't very long ago that the governor of California was outlawing drivers licenses for people who are undocumented from Mexico, that's not the law anymore!”

"By allowing folks who sneak in here or overstay their visas legal status to drive, Governor Brown is subverting federal law as well as undermining comprehensive immigration reform," O'Reilly warned.

Bill O'Reilly stated that any compromise on immigration was unworkable because of the fanaticism of the amnesty side. "The open border people and the amnesty folks will not compromise if they think they can get what they want without securing the border."

O'Reilly suggested that amnesty was impossible without securing the border and that the advocates of open borders had made it impossible to achieve a path to citizenship for illegal aliens.

"We all know why Jerry Brown is doing what he's doing ... votes. About a third of all people living in California were not born in the U.S.A," O'Reilly said.

O'Reilly also pointed out that despite the benefits to politicians like Jerry Brown, illegal immigrants were costing California $25 billion a year.

"American citizens in your state are paying $25 billion because you defy federal law," he said.
