During a White House press conference Wednesday explaining the administration’s new immigration proposals, WH adviser Stephen Miller got into a back-and-forth with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta over the history of American immigration policy.
It did not go well for Acosta (who cited a poem for his argument). Because Miller brought historical fact.
The reviews are in: Acosta got wrecked.

The poem on the Statute of Liberty isn’t US law. That was a bad way for Acosta to make his argument.

Oh man. Stephen Miller SLAMS CNN’s @Acosta for ? over new legal immigration policy. “Your cosmopolitan bias is showing”

Doublechin Jim @acosta stereotypes immigrants in most bigoted way. All kinds of Asians, Indians, Muslims, Latin Americans fluent in English

stephen miller has the advantage in this exchange w/ acosta of actually knowing what he’s talking about

Miller was quite good at pointing out Acosta’s “cosmopolitan” bias ?? https://t.co/HuN9WO5Uw0

My advice for @acosta is to learn something about an issue before talking about it, but what do I know

According to my timeline, Jim Acosta thinks the Statue of Liberty decides immigration laws.

.@Acosta an advocate for a political point of view, not as a neutral reporter. He’s not even playing the devil’s advocate. This is bias.

Liberal reporter citing a sentimental poem as the basis for our laws pretty much fulfills every MSM stereotype ever.

Better luck next time, CNN. Try again when your reporters want to be objective … and know something about what they’re asking.
How do we stop the mainstream media from warping the national narrative? We push back together. With the truth.
