Why does this not surprise me?

Katie Miller, the spokeswoman for Vice President Mike Pence and the wife of the immigration hardliner Stephen Miller, told the author of a new book that she visited child migrant detention centers to become more compassionate “but it didn’t work.”
Miller’s comments were reported in “Separated,” a new book out on Tuesday by the NBC News reporter Jacob Soboroff that chronicles the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” family-separation policy. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow read an excerpt from the book on her show on Monday.
Under the family-separation policy, from 2017 to 2019, thousands of children of migrants were separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border and placed in unsanitary detention facilities.
The excerpt Maddow published on the show quoted Miller as telling Soboroff: “My family and colleagues told me that when I have kids I’ll think about the separations differently. But I don’t think so … DHS sent me to the border to see the separations for myself — to try to make me more compassionate — but it didn’t work.”
Soboroff wrote: “‘It didn’t work? I will never forget what I saw. Seriously. Are you a white nationalist?’ I asked, exasperated.”
Miller responded: “No, but I believe if you come to America you should assimilate. Why do we need to have ‘Little Havana’?”
Let’s face it if this woman were not a heartless bitch is there really any chance that she would have been attracted to this guy?
I don’t think so.
Therefore it is not at all surprising that she left those Trump concentration camps unmoved by what she witnessed.
