Bill O'Reilly On Nicky Diaz 'Situation'

Via TPM: Meg Whitman's former housekeeper Nicky Diaz may be in trouble with ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) after she recently outed herself as an undocumented immigrant.

This week on the O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly asked guest Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, what ICE was going to do about the "Nicky situation."

I'm not going to tell you what to do--that would be insulting, and I wouldn't do that. However, the folks want to know what the federal government is going to do about this because it sends a message to all the other people using bogus social security cards that are hurting the country...

Can you assure my viewers--millions of people watching all over the world now-- can you assure them that the federal government will do something about this Nicky situation?

Napolitano agreed to look into the situation "very seriously" and O'Reilly secured a promise from her to return once ICE comes to a decision.
