"Victim’s father calls O’Reilly ‘disrespectful.’"

In his debate with Geraldo last night, Bill O’Reilly argued that the deaths of two girls in a drunk-driving accident should be blamed on illegal immigration since the drunk driver was undocumented. But during a press conference, the father of one of the girls “said that making an issue out of immigration loses the focus that the girls were killed by a man that police said was driving drunk. Ray Tranchant said, ‘We need to heal, and to bring immigration, that’s disrespectful to a family who’s just mourning.'”
