Donald Trump threatened to permanently close the southern border in an unhinged Tweet telling the Mexican government to do whatever it takes to keep asylum seekers making their way through the country away from the US border, but the only problem is that he legally can't do that. Conservative Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano sought to inform Trump that Federal law is explicit in how asylum seekers are to be treated and reminded Trump that he must enforce the law as it is written.
