"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert welcomed Bill O'Reilly to Monday night's show. The two found themselves reluctantly agreeing on, among other things, how misguided Donald Trump's immigration policy is.

"The anti-illegal alien stuff is B.S.," O'Reilly explained to a confused Colbert. "You shouldn't be anti-illegal aliens; that doesn't solve any problems."

"You should be anti-criminal," Colbert said, and O'Reilly agreed.

This is a huge shift in stance for O'Reilly on Kate's Law. Last summer, he cited the bill to prop up then-upstart candidate Donald Trump, who has since built a KKK-approved nativist campaign by mischaracterizing Mexican immigrants as "thugs" and "rapists."
