White House policy adviser Stephen Miller has a lot of influence and he doesn't like immigrants. It is Chief of Staff John Kelly and Miller, who Bill Palmer refers to as Chief of Racism, that are blocking President Trump when he attempts to make a deal on DACA.
Graham targeted, by name, Miller as an unproductive force in the immigration fight. “As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we are going nowhere,” Graham said to reporters. Graham noted that Trump’s “heart is right on this issue,” but said that Miller’s restrictive immigration views have “never been in the mainstream in the Senate” and has made him “an outlier for years.”
It is extremely unusual for a Senator to target a White House staff member so directly.
This central planner of people is one strange dude. He stays in the shadows but loves power.
