At the meeting, Miller accused anyone opposing zero tolerance of being a lawbreaker and un-American, according to the two officials present.

“If we don’t enforce this, it is the end of our country as we know it,” said Miller, according to the two officials. It was not unusual for Miller to make claims like this, but this time he was adamant that the policy move forward, regardless of arguments about resources and logistics.

No one in the meeting made the case that separating families would be inhumane or immoral, the officials said. Any moral argument regarding immigration “fell on deaf ears” inside the White House, said one of the officials.

“Miller was tired of hearing about logistical problems,” said one of the officials. “It was just, ‘Let’s move forward and staff will figure this out.'”

    Why does that not surprise me? I wish —— no, that isn’t nice, but maybe the answer is to separate a few of them from their cushy jobs and send them into the population they seem to scorn to try to get by just like the rest of us. And no income for life from those cushy jobs either. Hugs.

      Hello Angela. They see themselves as superior to the brown people and by being born in the US also superior to those born in other countries. I don’t understand that mindset, but they have it. Hugs

    I’m not surprised that Stephen Miller was behind the outrage. He’s a Nazi, and I’ve come to believe he’s the inside man on most of Trump’s insanities. Trump is psychotic as we all know, but so is Miller and hence he empowers Trump’s criminal behavior.
    Thanks for the post, Scottie. It’s revealing.

      Hello Paul. It amazes me the amount of hate and nationalism Miller has considering his own family immigrated to the US and being Jewish must understand the pain of being discriminated against. Instead he is the chief bigot in the administration. Hugs
