Several members of the San Fransisco Board of Supervisors refused to answer questions about the city’s sanctuary city policy when confronted by a reporter with the Fox News Channel.
New video that aired on “The O’Reilly Factor” shows reporters with the cable-news network attempt to speak with the elected officials.
The reporter had contacted the offices of the individual supervisors before tracking them down in person, but was either ignored or had interview requests denied.
When confronted, San Fransisco Board of Supervisors member Jane Kim said the issue at hand wasn’t the city’s sanctuary policy.
“I think the issue here is gun control,” Kim said. “No individual with that type of record should be able to access or be in possession of a gun.”
Others took aim at the Fox News Channel.
“Of course, Fox News would be this rude,” supervisor Katy Tang said.
“We tried this through your office and got no response,” the reporter replied.
“Well, you know what? Because you’re interviewing the wrong f****** person!” Tang shot back.

Scott Weiner, another San Fransisco Board of Supervisors member, also refused to speak.
“Fox News is not real news!” he repeated.
Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly has continued to cover the killing of Kate Steinle, a woman authorities say was gunned down by an illegal immigrant who had prior felony convictions and had been deported five times. He was only set free because of San Fransisco’s refusal to cooperate with federal officials on immigration matters.
