Kate Steinle’s Parents Speak Out to O’Reilly: ‘I Feel Her Strength’

steinle parentsThe parents of Kate Steinle, the San Francisco woman killed by an illegal immigrant, spoke out on Bill O’Reilly‘s show tonight about their daughter’s death and preventing future similar tragedies.

Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan told O’Reilly their daughter was a very good and “soulful person.” Sullivan said, “I feel her strength still with me.”

Steinle got emotional as he recounted the tragic night when his daughter was killed. Both of them expressed their appreciation for all the people offering comfort and support.

In the second segment, O’Reilly discussed the law he proposed last week––Kate’s Law––that would mandate that any illegal immigrant who comes back to the U.S. after being convicted of a felony and deported serves five years in prison.

Steinle’s parents both support the law, with Steinle saying, “It’ll be a legacy in her name and her death would not go unnoticed.”

O’Reilly also expressed his intention to fly both of them out to D.C. to appeal directly to members of Congress about this law.
