Have you heard of the recent rape and murder of Marilyn Pharis?

Marilyn was a 64-year old Air Force vet who was brutally raped in her own home in Santa Barbara County, beaten with a hammer and murdered by an illegal alien named Victor Martinez.

A week later, Marilyn Pharis died from her wounds.

This tragedy followed the July 1 death of Kate Steinle, who was murdered in broad daylight, in the “Sanctuary City” of San Francisco, by yet another illegal alien, who had been deported FIVE times previously. The city had recently had him in jail, but released him, after prosecutors reduced the charge to a misdemeanor and ignored a federal request by ICE officials to be notified before any release, so he could be deported for the sixth time!

These murders are only two out of hundreds committed each year in our country by illegal, criminal immigrants. It amounts to an illegal-alien crime wave.

In the seven years between 2008 and 2014, the Government Accountability Office has revealed that 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal illegal aliens. Furthermore, if you add up all the murder convictions in California, Texas, Arizona, Florida, and New York over the same timeframe, 38% of them were illegal aliens. These numbers do not include rapes, manslaughter, drunk-driving killings, and other violent crimes. When you consider that illegal aliens are only 5.6% of the population in those states, this becomes unconscionable!

News commentator Bill O’Reilly is calling for Congress to pass a “Kate’s Law,” in Kate Stienle’s memory. It would mandate that any “undocumented alien” convicted of a felony in the U.S.A. must be deported and, if they return illegally to this country, would serve a mandatory five years in federal prison, upon apprehension and conviction. A second offence would mandate a 10 year prison sentence.

So far, hundreds of thousands have signed this common-sense petition, posted on BillOReilly.com. It will be delivered to the Senate and the House, when they return from their month-long vacation, asking for Congress to pass “Kate’s Law. “

Though some are debating whether non-felon illegals, who also defy deportation, should be part of the bill’s procedure, the main concern right now is in keeping these felons off the streets of America. Bill O’Reilly believes there is congressional support for this measure and also to defund federal support for Sanctuary Cities, which perpetuate these crimes.
