The Ingraham Angle
In the final Friday segment of The Ingraham Angle, Fox News's Laura Ingraham focused much-needed attention on the public safety impact of California's refusal to cooperate with ICE's attempts to deport predominantly criminal illegal aliens in that state.

During Wednesday's The Ingraham Angle on Fox News, the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham called out the liberal media for being “angry and frustrated” that their anti-Trump smears weren’t swaying his base of support.Graham was on to talk about a recently published and condescending report by the Associated Press, in which author Claire Galofaro bemoaned how:
