Miller, a far-right nativist, has been behind many of the Trump administration’s harshest proposals to curtail immigration, including legal pathways to citizenship. His wife, Katie Miller, also serves in the White House, as the press secretary to Vice President Mike Pence, and she already was infected earlier in the year.
