Stephen Miller DISGUSTED President Biden Treating Immigrants Like Human Beings, DISGUSTED!
Donald Trump will speak Sunday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he's expected to declare himself the past, present, and future of the GOP. Axios reports that his keynote address will be a “show of force" that makes clear he is the “presumptive 2024 nominee." His deranged message is "I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I'm still in charge," we guess.
The former White House squatter is brushing off his greatest policy hit, immigration, and will blast real President Joe Biden's policies that don't involve torturing children. Most former presidents have avoided directly attacking their successors, especially so soon after an election, but the one-term loser was never really an American president. We shouldn't expect him to uphold norms and traditions or demonstrate basic human decency. He'll just whine a lot about how Biden abandoned his WALL.
Stephen Miller, who appears to be a snake cursed to assume human form, was the primary driver of Presumptive Nominee's anti-immigration schemes. Miller's currently joining forces with conservative House Republicans who want to oppose Biden's sensible policies. He's also taking his racist Chicken Little act on the talk show circuit. Last week, he told professional terrible person Laura Ingraham that Biden's immigration plan is the “most radical" bill ever written. Sunday, Miller whined to Maria Bartiromo on Fox News that Biden wasn't even trying to be a fascist who fundamentally misunderstood America.

Salon reports on Miller's whining to Bartiromo:
"The legislation put forward by Biden and congressional Democrats would fundamentally erase the very essence of America's nationhood," Miller claimed, explaining that he was upset by the idea that immigrants could legally regain entry after being deported by a former administration.
The “very essence of America's nationhood" sounds like the tagline for a neo-Nazi cologne.
I recently watched the Norah O'Donnell episode of "Finding Your Roots," and it was revealed that her immigrant grandfather had lived in America illegally for years and that her grandmother's citizenship was briefly revoked. However, America forgave both of them. If Miller's policies had been in force, there'd be no Norah O'Donnell, CBS News anchor, but fortunately, it was a kinder, gentler nation at the time (for white people).
Now, back to Miller's bigoted tirade:
"This is madness!" he exclaimed. "This administration has already dismantled border security, canceling President Trump's historic agreements with Mexico and with the northern triangle countries, restoring catch and release and additionally gutting interior enforcement, issuing a memo, preventing ICE from removing the vast majority of criminal illegal immigrants that it encounters!"
Someone should break it to Miller that 81 million Americans, which is more than 74 million, chose President Biden and his agenda. You lost. Miller is still free to appeal to white America's fears, but fear makes you stupid. Ask anyone who's witnessed the steady mental deterioration of their Fox News-viewing relatives.
"So ask yourself, who is going to pay for the education?" [Miller] said. "What does it mean when classrooms, God willing, reopen? What does it mean for classroom size? What does it mean for health care? Then you add on top of that the families that are being released. Who is paying for the medical bills? Who's paying for the health care costs?"
"That's coming out of your pocket book!" Miller said. "And it's a public safety issue!"
Whatever, Stephen Miller.
Miller's former boss will deliver a less coherent version of this fear-mongering at CPAC, but it's not necessarily a political winner for Republicans. The one-term loser and his Fox News enablers sounded alarms about a migrant caravan invasion before Republicans had their asses beat in the 2018 midterms. Voters cared more about their healthcare access, which Republicans had tried to deny millions of Americans. COVID-19 has killed at least 500,000 Americans, thanks in part to the previous administration's malicious incompetence.
That's a more pressing “public safety" issue than the human beings Miller resents so much.
