Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions said on the Senate floor Friday that Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s immigration endorsement contained misconceptions.
O’Reilly came out in support for immigration reform Thursday evening.
“’There would be at least 13 years before people in the country illegally right now could gain full legal working status,’” Sessions quoted O’Reilly.
“Not so. Not so at all. Not even close,” Sessions responded to the quote. “Within a few months everyone applies for the [Registered Provisional Immigrant] status, the provisional status, will be given a social security card and the right to go to work and be lawfully in the country and cannot be deported unless they commit a serious crime. It’s virtually immediately, not 13 years.”
