On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz agreed with a federal judge’s ruling blocking President Trump’s order requiring asylum seekers to enter the US legally through a port of entry. Dershowitz stated, “I think he has the better of the argument, the judge does, on the statutory interpretation. There’s nothing in the statute that suggests that the president has the authority to overrule Congress. … The president’s authority is not a constitutional authority. It’s limited by statute. If the statute permits asylum seekers to seek asylum, even if they come in illegally, that statutory rule has to prevail. If the president doesn’t like that rule, he should go to Congress and have Congress change it.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

The Trump administration’s hard-line immigration agenda suffered another setback Monday when a federal judge ruled that it cannot deny asylum to immigrants who cross the border illegally. Judge Jon Tigar of San Francisco temporarily blocked a recent executive-branch policy denying asylum to such immigrants. The court will rule on making that order permanent after it expires on December 19. “Whatever the scope of the president’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,” read the court’s opinion.

"I think the Acosta incident is... a symbol of an attempt to discredit not only CNN but the entire press corps." Speaking from his years of experience being pursued by the Obama Justice Department for simply practicing journalism and refusing to reveal his confidential sources, Intercept reporter James Risen told The Hill on Monday that President Donald Trump is building on his predecessor's war on the free press by "demagoguing" the media "in a way we haven't seen in modern American history.""Obama tried to put me in jail for seven years... A lot of conservatives try to point to me as an example of Obama on press freedom and I fully agree with the view that he had a terrible record on press freedom," Risen said. "The difference with Trump is that he is demagoguing the issue in a way we haven't seen in modern American history."Asked if, given his history, he believes the Trump White House is a greater threat to press freedom than the Obama White House was, Ris...

CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta may have won the recent battle about his access to the White House, but it appears as though Donald Trump’s war against the “fake news” media is far from over. On Friday, a federal judge — appointed by Mr Trump, nonetheless — ordered the White House to restore Mr Acosta’s credentials after they were revoked following clash with the president at a press conference earlier this month. At the time, Mr Acosta refused to hand over a microphone to an intern, despite Mr Trump moving on to another reporter.

The mainstream media are celebrating Friday’s decision by a federal judge to force the White House to restore CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” Judge Timothy J. Kelly’s decision is being treated as a victory for the free press, and proof that the Trump administration’s decision was wrong and violated Acosta’s constitutional rights. But  the decision undermined the picture of the Trump administration the media have sought to portray, in three ways: 1. A Trump appointee ruled against Trump. The media, and their Democratic Party allies, have treated President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees as if they can be expected to be slavishly loyal to the administration. That is why, for example, they focused on Brett Kavanaugh’s views on whether a president can be indicted while in office. The left expects judges to vote their “party,” because that is what left-wing judges do. Kelly, a Trump appointee, did not. 2. Cons...

It's been over a week since Democrats won the House. Here are some of the most insane reactions. This year, Democrats managed to win back control of the House for the first time in nearly a decade. Predictably, many on the Right were dismayed, both those who were expecting the loss and those who had been duped by President Donald Trump's confident prediction that there would be a "red wave."Just more than a week out from the Democrats' victory, here are some of the craziest reactions from conservatives to the news they would no longer hold unified control of the federal government:Donald Trump: It wasn't actually that bad, but if it was, it wasn't my fault.This week, Trump sat for an interview with the conservative Daily Caller. When asked by reporters Saagar Enjeti and Benny Johnson whether the House loss was of any significance to him, he immediately downplayed it — and then said he was the reason things weren't even worse."I think I did very well," said Trump.
