Top Democrat demands ‘boss of everybody’ Stephen Miller appear before Congress and explain the chaos he is creating

Published

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) was sharply critical of President Donald Trump adviser Stephen Miller for creating chaos at the border with his immigration policies.

Speaking with host Jake Tapper, Nadler scorched Miller for Trump’s declaration that he would start dumping immigrants in sanctuary cities, saying the Trump aide needs to appear before Congress and explain what exactly the administration is attempting to accomplish.

“If someone requests asylum, there should be a place for that person to stay while that request is adjudicated,” Nadler began. “Nor is it right for the president to use immigrants or people claiming political asylum as pawns in a fight against political opponents. He shouldn’t use them as what he imagines as retribution to political opponents in various areas — it’s another misuse of presidential power against the law.”

“We heard several weeks ago from whistle-blowers that Stephen Miller proposed this before we heard about it from any other source,” he continued, his voice rising. “Probably Stephen Miller, who seems to be the boss of everybody on immigration, ought to come before Congress and explain some of these policies.”

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"
