White nationalist Stephen Miller, the architect of President Donald Trump’s child separation policy, is being roasted by critics after he attacked President Joe Biden’s immigration policies as cruel and inhuman.
“What we’re seeing here is the cruelty and inhumanity of Joe Biden’s immigration policies,” Miller, a former Trump senior advisor and speechwriter, told Laura Ingraham on Fox News Wednesday night, as Business Insider reported.
In May of 2018 Miller reportedly told a group of 11 top Trump advisors, including Cabinet officials, “that not enforcing the administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policy ‘is the end of our country as we know it,'” NBC News revealed last year.
“White supremacy” was the driving force behind the administration’s decisions on child separation, a historian told NBC News. And according to Trump administration officials, Miller “saw the separation of families not as an unfortunate byproduct but as a tool to deter more immigration.”
On Wednesday Miller went on an angry rant and claimed President Biden is “forcing thousands of young children into the arms of smugglers, into the arms of traffickers, into the arms of coyotes,” which is false.
“Children are being taken away from their families in the Northern Triangle — in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Those countries are being deprived of their future. These illegal immigrants are being put in harm’s way all because of a policy choice Joe Biden made to restore catch and release. That is cruel, that is inhumane, and we are seeing the results of that right now.”

We’re about 5 minutes away from Stephen Miller claiming that Joe Biden probably owns a hotel and that should disqualify him from being president. https://t.co/2xNrZgg3Yz

Stephen Miller is the Nazi who PUT kids in cages; ESTABLISHED migrant detention camps; STARTED SEPARATING FAMILIES; and is WHY we STILL can’t locate the parents of HUNDREDS of migrant children. Biden’s administration is working to reunite the families traumatized by this goblin. https://t.co/MNcfb4Pktb

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that @foxnews didn’t ask Stephen Miller about how and why the Biden administration found the parents of 105 children in 5 weeks whereas the Trump administration couldn’t find a single one in over 2 years pic.twitter.com/mZ6y5uBY4W

The day Stephen Miller discovered that hating Blacks and Latinos could get him laid was the day he began macking on all the neo-nazi ladies. It turned him from a mouse to Amon (Goeth.) pic.twitter.com/ku5efZSuU8

Mini-Hitler Stephen Miller criticizing President Biden’s policies as inhumane is hypocrisy on steroids.

A classic projection tactic employed by the Soviet Union now widely utilized by the GOP.
