The Biden administration could end the growing crisis of children entering the country illegally as soon as tomorrow if it would rescind its "immoral policy," according to former White House senior adviser Stephen Miller.
"When a pandemic hit the United States of America, the Centers for Disease Control said all people crossing the border illegally had to be returned to their countries immediately, as quickly and as safely as possible," Miller told Fox News Saturday. "The Biden administration terminated the order as it applies to illegal migrants traveling alone, under the age of 18."
But now, the underage migrants are "flooding across the border" after the administration opened the border, said Miller, and that has put "thousands of children into the arms of smugglers and traffickers."
He also accused the administration of adopting an "anti-science position" when it comes to educating American children by saying it is "inherently unsafe" to open schools, but they still believe it is safe to educate "illegal alien minors" on the border.
"There is not a single thread of scientific evidence that could support that point of view," he said.
"It is a pattern in which illegal immigrants are privileged over Americans and the tragedy here, it is not just hurting Americans, hurting these young migrants" as they are being "pushed into the arms of criminal cartels, smuggled in traffic across many in the United States, on the hope and expectation the Biden administration facilitate the rest of the smuggling operation and as long as that policy remains in place."
Miller also discussed former President Donald Trump's upcoming speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), saying the president will draw the contrast between Republican politics, which "prioritize working families and working people" to that of President of Joe Biden, which "prioritizes large multinational corporations and foreign countries; a choice between America first and America last."
