These people do not care about legal or illegal, they just want to keep as many brown people out of the country as possible.

White House senior adviser Stephen Miller wasn’t getting an immigration regulation he wanted. So he sent a series of scorching emails to top immigration officials, calling the department an “embarrassment” for not acting faster, according to emails obtained by POLITICO.
The regulation in question would allow the Department of Homeland Security to bar legal immigrants from obtaining green cards if they receive certain government benefits. The rule will likely be released in the coming days, according to a pair of current and former Trump officials briefed on the timeline.
The emails, which POLITICO obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, shed new light on how aggressively Miller has pressured the Department of Homeland Security to move faster on regulations to limit immigration. Critics say the new rule will be used to shore up Trump’s political base in the coming election year, and that it’s an illegitimate tool to reduce legal immigration.
One former Trump official said Miller has maintained a “singular obsession” with the public charge rule, which he’s argued would bring about a transformative change to U.S. immigration.
This one charge rule would mean that new immigrants accessing government benefits to survive until they could get a job would risk losing their shot at getting a green card and would remain illegals until ICE rounded them up and sent them back across the border.
Stephen Miller is really the top racist in the White House and his loathing for people of color oozes out of every one of his pores.
He is what it would look like if snakes could mate with human beings.
The good news is that the courts are still pushing back on these draconian immigration policies.

A federal judge in the District of Columbia on Friday threw out a Trump administration policy barring migrants who illegally crossed the border from seeking asylum, finding that it violated the Immigration and Nationality Act.
The administration’s policy, signed last November, aimed to temporarily bar migrants who illegally cross into the US through the southern border from seeking asylum outside of official ports of entry.
“[A]liens have a statutory right to seek asylum regardless of whether they enter the United States at a designated port of entry, and defendants may not extinguish that statutory right by regulation or proclamation,” wrote District Judge Randolph Moss, an Obama appointee.
Late last year, a federal judge in California blocked Trump’s asylum ban and the Supreme Court later upheld the judge’s order.
Trump is working overtime to pack the court with appointees who he believes will support his policies, but at least for right now the courts seem to be maintaning their integrity.
At least for right now.
