(AP) - The parents of Kathryn Steinle have said in an interview with Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly that they support a proposal to give mandatory prison time to deported people who come back.
Steinle was walking along a waterfront in San Francisco when she was shot by a gun allegedly fired by Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez.
Sanchez, who has pleaded not guilty, was in the country illegally and had been released from jail months before the shooting, despite a federal immigration order asking local authorities to hold him.
O'Reilly and other proponents of strict immigration laws have seized upon the death as a symbol of Democrats' wrong-headed policies on immigration.
Liz Sullivan and Jim Steinle's interview is scheduled to air tonight on The O'Reilly Factor.
