Trump aide Stephen Miller brags about policy ripping immigrant kids away from parents: ‘It was a simple decision’

Stephen Miller

Controversial White House advisor Stephen Miller bragged about President Donald Trump’s new policy of child separation as a “simple decision” during a West Wing interview with The New York Times.

“No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement,” Miller told The Times.

“It was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry, period,” he claimed. “The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law.”

In May, New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay identified Miller as the leader of a White House faction intentionally inflicting harm.

“Let’s be clear, though, immigration has been an issue, a difficult one, a thorny one for the administration, but some of the stuff we’re seeing, the cruelty, is intentional,” Gay argued. “You know, this is a ‘Stephen Miller faction.’ That’s what’s happening.”

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) reached a similar conclusion.

“This is not a zero tolerance policy, this is a zero humanity policy, and we can’t let it go on,” Merkley suggested. “Ripping children out of their parents’ arms to inflict harm on the child to influence the parents is unacceptable.”

That’s one possible scenario, depending on what happens in a likely Senate trial and the 2020 presidential election. But journalist Lauren Frias, in an article for Business Insider, describes another scenario: Trump is removed from office by the Senate yet runs for president again anyway.

Cut his mic, escort him the hearing, strip him of all committees....then make him sit a Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan's lunch table!
