As his administration intensifies anti-immigrant policies at the border, President Trump has reportedly put adviser Stephen Miller in charge of the administration’s immigration policy. The Wall Street Journal reports Miller has backed the reinstatement of Trump’s family separation policy and has been pushing officials at the Homeland Security and Justice Departments to “get in line” with a more hard-line immigration approach. This news comes as Trump told the Republican Jewish Coalition leadership Saturday, “Our country’s full. What can you do? We can’t handle any more. Our country is full.”
We speak with Stephen Miller’s uncle, Dr. David Glosser, who says Trump’s comments echo the rhetoric of Nazi Germany. Glosser is a retired neuropsychologist and former faculty member at Boston University School of Medicine and Jefferson Medical College.

Stephen Miller Owns Himself By Failing U.S. Civics Test / ‘The Beat With Ari Melber’ — Link to 9-Minute VideoPresident Trump’s key immigration aid Stephen Miller, who called the policy behind child separation “a simple decision” is held accountable in a special report by MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber. Melber rips into Miller for trying to “run the government” like “a weapon against immigrants” and fact-checks his false claims that a President’s power “will not be questioned”. Melber shows how immigrants taking a U.S. citizenship test in their path to legal citizenship know that there are checks and balances on a President’s power and that perhaps “Miller needs to start studying” the same material.
