Trump shill Stephen Miller is furious immigrants can’t be denied benefits faster by the administration

Ever since he started his presidential campaign around three years ago, then Republican candidate Donald Trump has openly espoused a racist and xenophobic worldview. He literally wants to build a wall to keep white American citizens safe from what he strongly believes is the plague of immigrants. It should not be a surprise to anyone, then, that the person he appointed to head up his immigration policy unit is openly racist and proudly hostile towards the rights of immigrants and ethnic minorities. And it is horrifying to see how that plays out in administration policy, directly affecting people’s everyday lives and their basic human rights.

That man is Stephen Miller, and in the two and a bit years that Trump has held the high office of President of the United States and leader of the free world, he has a very long hits list of appalling immigration policies that he has implemented. Perhaps his most significant move was the decision to separate migrant children from their families and detain them in cages, which led to the resignation of Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. And the New York Times is now reporting that he recently went on a disgusting racist rant about how it is too easy for immigrants to get benefits:

Stephen Miller was furious — again. The architect of President Trump’s immigration agenda, Mr. Miller was presiding last month over a meeting in the White House Situation Room when he demanded to know why the administration officials gathered there were taking so long to carry out his plans. A regulation to deny welfare benefits to legal immigrants — a change Mr. Miller repeatedly predicted would be “transformative” — was still plodding through the approval process after more than two years, he complained.

So were the new rules that would overturn court-ordered protections for migrant children. They were still not finished, he added, berating Ronald D. Vitiello, the acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “You ought to be working on this regulation all day every day,” he shouted, as recounted by two participants at the meeting. “It should be the first thought you have when you wake up. And it should be the last thought you have before you go to bed. And sometimes you shouldn’t go to bed.”

In any other administration, this official would be fired immediately. Sadly, though, this is just typical of the Trump age, and things do not look like changing any time soon.
