    Bill O’Reilly: Marco Rubio immigration plan ‘good,’ ‘fair’

    Bill O’Reilly has given Marco Rubio’s immigration plan his seal of approval, giving public support to the Florida senator’s ideas on his show Wednesday.

    “That seems to be pretty fair,” O’Reilly said of Rubio’s plan. “I like your program. I think it’s fair.”

    O’Reilly encouraged Rubio to take his plan to the president — and have a public discussion.

    “If the president of the United States is not going to cooperate with the opposing party, we need to report that,” O’Reilly said. “That’s going to be very, very, very important going forward, because we all want fairness and I think your program is a good one.”

    Rubio’s “compassionate and responsible” plan includes two phases. The first phase includes deporting all illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes. In the event that no crime is committed, he calls for the immigrants to come forward peacefully, be fingerprinted for national security, and pay back taxes and certain fines.

    The second phase comes into play after the individual has remained in the U.S. for a significant period of time without committing any crimes and the border and workplace is secure. Then the now legal immigrant will be granted the opportunity to apply for the existing legal immigration system.

    “I wish we didn’t have eight or 12 million people here that are undocumented, but we do and we have to deal with it,” Rubio said in the interview. “But we have to deal with it in a way that’s compassionate and responsible.”

    O’Reilly is just one of the big names that have recently sided with Rubio on the immigration debate. Another is Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who has been talking about teaming up with Rubio on the issue.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
