Bill O'Reilly Tries to Correct Donald Trump on Immigration

On Tuesday night, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly interviewed Donald Trump, and he continually challenged Trump's immigration agenda. One thing Trump wants to end is birthright citizenship.

O'Reilly pointed out the 14th amendment by saying "That's not going to happen because the 14th Amendment says if you're born here, you're an American. And you can't kick Americans out. The courts would block you at every turn. You must know all that."

Trump argued that the Constitution does not grant citizenship to "anchor babies," which is a term used to describe non-citizens to enter the country illegally in order to give birth so that their child would be granted US citizenship. Trump replied "Bill, I think you're wrong about the 14th Amendment. And frankly, the whole thing with 'anchor babies' and the concept of 'anchor babies' — I don't think you're right about that."

O'Reilly shot back "You are not going to be able to deport people who have American citizenship now. And the federal courts will never allow mass deportations without due process for each and every one. And do you envision federal police kicking in the doors in barrios around the country, dragging families out?"

Trump then retorted "Bill, I don't think that they have American citizenship. And if you speak to some very, very good lawyers — and I know some would disagree, but many of them agree with me — you're going to find they do not have American citizenship. We have to start a process where we take back our country. Our country is going to hell."

Most of Trump's campaign has centered around his opposition to illegal immigrants. Despite several controversial comments, he is still leading in almost every recent poll.
