Late Night host Seth Meyers followed up President Trump's speech about the crisis at the border with an awful joke about the victims of illegal immigrant crime.

According to Fox News:

Comedian Seth Meyers came under criticism after a tweet from the "Late Night with Seth Meyers" account was accused of mocking victims who were murdered by illegal immigrants.

The tweet was a response to President Donald Trump's speech on Tuesday, in which he referenced California police officer Ronil Singh, who was shot and killed, allegedly by illegal immigrant Gustavo Perez Arriaga, on Dec. 26, 2018.

Singh immigrated to the United States legally from Fiji.

The "Late Night" tweet read, "Is this Oval Office: SVU?"

    It is unclear if Meyers wrote the Tweet directly himself but either way this is not a good look for the late-night host.
