Seth Meyers on Wednesday hit Donald Trump over his administration’s latest immigration police changes, at one point encouraging lawmakers to “stand up to Trump” and “take a cue from [him] and say, ‘blow me.’”
The Department of Homeland Security issued a new memo regarding the president’s immigration policy that drastically expanded the “priorities for removal” by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and established a new office to assist victims of crimes by undocumented immigrants.
In his “Closer Look” segment Wednesday, the Late Night host railed into the president’s policy changes, as well as his perpetually-promised border wall between the United States and Mexico.

ABC News had the goods on Jeffrey Epstein years ago — and killed the story
Multimillionaire predator Jeffrey Epstein died in suspicious circumstances at a Manhattan correctional facility on Aug. 10. The wealthy and powerful New York financier, a convicted sex offender, stands accused by dozens of women and girls of trafficking, rape and sexual abuse. He was an enormously influential and well-connected man who counted as friends billionaire business owners, Hollywood stars, British royals, and even top media figures like Katie Couric and Charlie Rose — with some of his associates falling under suspicion of condoning or even participating in a pedophile ring.
