In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Miller, an architect of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, decried their reversal by the new administration.
“The legislation put forward by President Biden and congressional Democrats would fundamentally erase the very essence of America's nationhood,” he maintained. “For the first time I believe in human history this legislation proposes sending applications to previously deported illegal immigrants and giving them the chance to reenter the country on a rapid path to citizenship. … This is madness.”
“This is on top of the fact that the current administration has already dismantled border security, canceling President Trump's historic agreements with Mexico and with the northern triangle countries [of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras], restoring catch and release and additionally gutting interior enforcement [by] issuing a memo preventing ICE from removing the vast majority of criminal illegal immigrants that it encounters,” he added.
According to Miller, the Trump agreements with those countries meant “we were able to ensure that if you were apprehended illegally you were safely and humanely returned home.”
“President Biden hasn't only failed in his duty to protect American citizens, he went out of his way to privilege illegal immigrants over American citizens,” Miller said.
“So when your kids can't go to school, when your spouse or you have been laid off because of COVID-related shutdowns, 200 countries in the world can send their illegal immigrants to our border without masks, without vaccines, without health care, without any rules at all."
