Trump Puts Immigration In The Hands Of 'True Believer' Stephen Miller

Trump Puts Immigration In The Hands Of 'True Believer' Stephen Miller

Some on Capitol Hill are arguing that Miller is pushing President Trump to be too much of an immigration hawk.

The Washington Post reported yesterday on the role that White House adviser Stephen Miller has played in shaping administration policy around immigration, including attempting to sell President Trump's policies to his far-right allies at Breitbart News and anti-immigration groups and carrying their concerns back to the president.

"Every time we have a proposal it is only yanked back by staff members", Mr Graham lamented, adding that though he does "enjoy working with them", White House staff like Mr Miller are "making it very hard".

This is the third consecutive day of the government's shutdown over the inability of its legislators to reach an agreement on the future of the Dreamers, while the entire country is torn between whom to blame.

Graham said, "I've talked with the president his heart is right on this issue".

Other cities involved in the protest included Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, Vancouver and two other cities in British Columbia. Urqhart has 13 employees at Envie and the servers start at minimum wage.

With a vote of 81-18, the stopgap effort gets the government back up and running until February 8 under a bipartisan agreement that the Senate immediately dives back into the immigration debate and decides what to do about the Dreamers. Some other staff in the White House hold extreme and unrealistic views. What remains to be seen is how the President will handle immigration going forward - and by "President", I mean Stephen Miller. "As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we're going nowhere", Graham said.

The senator has been a fierce critic of President Trump, often targeting the president's stance on immigration.

"He's been an outlier for years", he said of Mr Miller.

"Miller's racial obsessions with immigrants are playing out in a game of political chicken where five trains are racing toward one track in the switchyard of American politics", he continued.

On Sunday, Graham signaled optimism that Senate Democrats and Republicans could work out a deal.

As to how useful it is in practice, he stressed that "a test need not be ideal to be useful". It is also able to detect the origins in around 80 percent of cases, the study found.

The Senate has scheduled a procedural vote at noon Monday to advance legislation that may temporarily resolve the dispute and reopen the government.

Politico called Miller "a pugnacious conservative who has a keen focus on restrictive immigration policy".

"This shutdown is going to get a lot worse tomorrow". This looks more like a President not in command of his own staff.

Marc Short, the White House's chief legislative liaison, dismissed rumbling about Miller's influence as "a very unfair characterization" and critics "looking for a bogeyman".

Democrats opposed the bill because it did not offer protection for illegal aliens. "My sense is he's engaged in trying to carry out the president's agenda".
