A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

O’Reilly and Rivera Duke it Out

Well, if you didn’t see the tiff between Geraldo and O’Reilly duked it out last night, here it is.

Now, O’Reilly often gets emotional, but I think he’s gone over the edge.

By the way, Rivera, on this issue, and most issues, is Reasonable. Hands down on the facts, logically, and on this one he won. O’Reilly has some valid very points, particularly about sanctuary cities, but to make this particular crime in an illegal alien issue is a travesty. Does illegal immigration need to have a policy, YES, and is Washington D.C. listening, NO. I agree with O’Reilly that the borders need to be closed down, and sooner rather than later. I agree that sanctuary cities need to change their policies.

However, I agree more with Rivera when he implies that someone, and it really isn’t John Q. Citizen is benefitting from these people’s labor. I also believe that the current sentiment that wants to blame every societal ill upon these people is improper. This was a story about illegal drinking and driving. What about all the other17,000 people who have died from DWI. Illegal aliens are not responsible for that.  Geraldo hit the nail on the head, I also have two daughters and I’m much more concerned about them being involved with drunk drivers than with illegal aliens, and this story is just making “cheap political points” by using this and the recent fire in Queens, NY.

Do you want to see illegals being beaten on the street?  Is that what you want to see?  Will Congress PLEASE do something about this issue before these people are attacked on the streets based on the vitriole of pundits like O’Reilly and Lou Dobbs.

  1. Great site. That was a pretty good exchange between them.
    FYI: In North Carolina, Hispanics (most illegal by some estimates) are DUI-ed more than blacks and whites combined in 2005.
