LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): These courts are out of control. They're acting in an anti-democratic fashion, completely beyond their their constitutional authority. The idea that the chief executive officer of this country cannot act at a time where people are definitively, without a doubt in anyone's mind, who's honest, completely defying the law. And, if they're not defying the law, they're gaming the law on fraudulent basis facilitated by United States non-governmental organizations that get 501(c)(3) status, like this Pueblos Sin Fronteras.
Maybe -- maybe it's time to just defy these court orders and say, "Make me. Make me. We think your order is illegitimate." How is that court going to enforce the order against the president? At some point, we either stand up to these runaway judges and really create a constitutional issue here, in other words, the legitimacy of these nationwide injunctions. A single judge should not have this much power, and, of course, this one happens to be an Obama appointee, but Trump's had trouble with judges as well that he appointed.
