Miller has made no secret of his disdain for immigration. Last month, he “demanded” to know why officials were taking so long to implement a regulation to deny welfare to legal immigrants, and was unhappy about no progress in overturning court-ordered protections for migrant kids. “You ought to be working on this regulation all day every day,” he shouted. “It should be the first thought you have when you wake up; it should be the last thought you have before you go to bed.” Miller was behind Trump’s Homeland Security purge,which he believed was necessary because officials weren’t working fast enough on policies that “were legally questionable, impractical, unethical or unreasonable. It’s not entirely surprising that an lifelong xenophobe would be willing to put his white rage ahead of economic principles but it’s more than a bit concerning that he was actually successful at it.
