Stephen Miller: Americans Support Trump Funding Demand for Border Wall

White House senior adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday lashed out at “left-wing rulings” on immigration — and insisted Americans want a border wall even if President Donald Trump’s demand for $5 billion in funding forces a government shutdown.

In remarks on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Miller decried the ruling of “left-wing activist” District Court Judge Jon Tigar, who blocked a Trump policy denying illegal immigrants asylum unless they legally enter through a port of entry.

“One of the great tragedies is the loopholes in our immigration laws and deficiencies in immigration laws and left wing rulings that incentivize the most vulnerable populations to come to our country,” Miller declared. “Last year 100,000 unaccompanied children or children traveling with adults showed up at our southern border. 

“President Trump took … dramatic action, issued an executive order directing illegal traffic to the ports of entry. But a left-wing activist judge issued a reckless, nationwide injunction… putting thousands of lives at risk.”

His remarks followed the death of a 7-year-old girl from Guatemala after being taken into custody of the Border Patrol. 

“The loss of that precious life is horrifying,” he said. “It is a painful reminder of the ongoing humanitarian tragedy that is illegal immigration, the misery that it spreads.”

But Miller insisted the $5 billion funding of a border wall being demanded by Trump is necessary — and what voters want.

“This is what the American people want,” he said. “Both parties to come together for the sake of American children, for the sake of children all across this hemisphere to create a lawful system of immigration, not the lawless chaos that is perpetuated.”

Miller also predicted Obamacare — which was invalidated by a federal judge in Texas last week — will ultimately be struck down by the Supreme Court of the United States.

“A flawed law would be off the books,” he said.  “This president, working with members of both parties, will be able to replace it with something that not only expands choice, expands competition, enshrines state lines, but protects preexisting conditions in a much better way than the current law does.”

Pressed on whether he thinks the Affordable Care Act will be struck down by the nation’s high court, he responded:  “I believe that’s it. Because it’s always been unconstitutional.”

  1. It’s a very simple choice. Open borders or a secure border. There is no in between. An open border erodes the nation and costs taxpayers vastly more in benefits for those here illegally than the cost of securing the border. The Democrats have chosen open borders as George Soros supports. Most Americans favor a secure border as do I.

    1. Congress has shown their true anti-American views by not voting to build the wall……they showed their true colors to inform WE THE LEGAL PEOPLE of the USA that they are full of corruption……In fact their letting the illegals vote, which goes against the Constitution, is proof of those Congress politicians corrupt and treasonous acts against the USA.

  2. Common sense and A quick look at Europe’s violence is all it takes for reasonable people to see that a secure border with a wall must be funded. The ongoing cost of unchecked illegal immigration will be Far greater than
    the cost of a wall

  3. Right On and Godspeed, Steven Miller. No one could have said it better than you this week. Let this corrupt deep state Congress know that the majority of us Americans want that wall! Stop playing games, Chucky and Nancy. You are digging your own graves.

  4. ALONG WITH BUILDING THE WALL, HUGE FINES AND PRISON TIME FOR ANYONE WHO KNOWINGLY HIRES AN ILLEGAL. NO MORE FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ILLEGALS, MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO SELL OR RENT HOMES TO ILLEGALS, NO FREE WELFARE FOR ILLEGALS AND ILLEGALS CANNOT SEND THEIR KIDS TO OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. ALL OF THIS IS COSTING TAXPAYER’S BILLIONS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR THIS MONEY COULD BE BETTER SPENT ON OUR OWN PEOPLE AND THIS WOULD DISCOURAGE ILLEGALS FROM COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE THERE WOULD BE NO FREE HANDOUTS. MAKES SENSE, BUT ANYTHING THAT MAKES SENSE OUR GOVERNMENT POLITICIAN’S DO NOT SEEM TO BE ABLE TO GRASP. WE KEEP ELECTING MORON’S AND SHAME ON US!
