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.”
