In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O’Reilly said President Donald Trump is continuing to follow through on his campaign promises with a “big crackdown” on illegal immigration.
O’Reilly explained that on Wednesday, Trump signed two executive actions that cover a range of immigration enforcement measures.
He said this sends a signal that illegal immigration will be dealt with by the federal government in a “very aggressive way.”
O’Reilly noted that the orders call for constructing a U.S.-Mexico border wall, targeting sanctuary cities, hiring 5,000 more Border Patrol agents and ending “catch-and-release” policies for illegal immigrants.
“It remains to be seen, however, whether a border wall will be effective, whether sanctuary cities will finally obey the law, and whether ending the ‘catch-and-release’ program will slow down illegal border crossings,” O’Reilly said.
“But at this point, strong federal action is being taken. No question about it.”
