The Trump adviser who pushed a plan to separate migrant children from their families now says that President Joe Biden deserves the "eternal shame of history" over his border policies.
During an interview on Fox News, former Trump adviser Stephen Miller blasted Biden for dismantling Trump-era immigration policies.
"The decision to terminate President Trump's hugely successful border controls is a crime against humanity," Miller told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. "And my plea to every single member of Congress on the Republican side of the aisle is raise holy hell about what's happening on our border."
He added: "This administration deserves to lose not only a record number of seats in the House and the Senate over this border crisis but the eternal shame of history! For what they have done has no precedent. It is an abomination."
During his time in the White House, Miller pursued harsh immigration policies that separated children from their families. Activists have called for the International Criminal Court to charge Miller with crimes against humanity for his role.

During his appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was pressed by host Dana Bash over his support for Donald Trump to run for president again in light of his comments after Jan. 6. when he claimed "Count me out" after the insurrection at the Capitol.
After making the South Carolina Republican watch himself on the monitor exclaiming to his Senate colleagues, "I hate it to end this way. Oh my God, I hate it ," before adding, "From my point of view, he’s been a consequential president, but today, first thing you’ll see. All I can say is count me out, enough is enough.”
Asking about his about-face, host Bash pressed, "Why now do you think Trump has the character to be president again?”
According to Graham, his comments at the time were made in light of attempts to decertify the 2020 presidential election votes.
“I think he [Trump] was a consequential president. If you compare his policies to what’s going on today, I think he’s got a hell of a story to say” was the best Graham could offer.
Asked later by the CNN host, "It sounds like you’re saying, point blank: ‘Donald Trump, please stop saying the 2020 election was stolen," Graham replied, "I’m telling President Trump if you wanna be president in 2024, focus on solving the problems Americans are living with now."

'Preposterous': Lindsey Graham undercut on CNN after claim the IRS will target 'waitresses and Uber drivers'
During a joint appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) saw his fearmongering about an army of IRS agents targeting service workers slapped aside by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) as "preposterous."
Appearing with host Dana Bash, ostensibly to talk about policies they can agree upon, the two senators were asked about the massive bill dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 that was being debated on the Senate floor during their appearance, they parted ways about the bill's potential.
With Graham saying he wouldn't vote for it no matter how many changes are made, he then attacked a proposal to add more IRS agents to go after tax cheats.
"Hiring 86,000 more IRS agents, if that makes you feel better, you missed a lot," the South Carolina Republican suggested. "They're coming after waitresses and Uber drivers and everybody else to collect more taxes. So if you think growing the IRS is good for you, you're wrong."
"Do you want to respond or move on?" host Bash asked Blumenthal.
"I think the IRS is going to target the highest income Americans," Blumenthal said with a smile. "As the saying goes, that's where the money is, that's where they're going to look to collect."
"The idea there's going to be this army of IRS agents descending on the average Americans is preposterous," He scoffed. "Tax fairness is what we need. For the biggest corporations in this country to pay no taxes, for them to do stock buybacks that benefit the shareholders? For example in the case of oil companies, they are making three to four times they did last year. What are they doing with those excess windfall profits? Lowering gasoline prices? No, they are doing stock buybacks and they ought to pay a tax on it."
