CNN’s Jim Acosta’s battle with the Trump admin’s Stephen Miller over the poem on the Statue of Liberty dominated the political news yesterday evening and this morning. During the back-and-forth, Acosta used the poem to attempt to refute immigration policies President Trump is proposing. Twitter Moments thought it would be a good time to serve up an important legal disclaimer of sorts:

Not “technically” U.S. law? LOL.
That poem (written as a fund-raiser to pay for the pedestal) is no more "US law" than "Kumbaya" or "This Land Is Your Land" is "US law", ffs

The poem "technically" isn't law.

Technically? Interesting choice of word. They could have used obviously or clearly…
