Stephen Miller's Immigration Policy (Leo Goldberger, USA, 08/30/20 3:53 am)

One of the few ongoing, senior advisors to Donald Trump, featured in a recent editorial piece in the New York Times, Aug. 17, is named Stephen Miller--an immigration hardliner, chiefly known for his inhumane policy of separating children from their parents.

Needless to say, it is almost impossible to imagine a worse fate for a child. As someone who during the terror of the Holocaust, even in the otherwise fortunate circumstance of my family's escape to Sweden during the round-up of us Jews in October of 1943 from my country of Denmark, I was fortunate not to be abandoned by my parents--as many other children were--even in the milder version of the round-up in Denmark. Some parents were simply too afraid that even with sedatives most often provided to the children, parents were afraid that things might go awry in their furtive process of escape and thus left their youngsters behind with people they in many instances hardly knew. In a few families, they even committed mass suicide on the beach while awaiting their promised rescue fishing boat.

Let me just say, it ought not to require my personal experience nor exemplary empathy to be horrified by Miller's continuing advocacy of his "separation policy."  And as with Mr. Trump himself, one can only invoke some serious character formation in Mr. Miller as well, and ask of him--as Joe McCarthy so famously was by Joseph Welch in the famous senate hearings: "At last have you no decency?"

Were the USA still in compliance with the UN regulations, one would hope that the International Court of Justice, established by the UN in 1946, might indict Mr. Miller--and potentially others. (I believe attempts has already been made...but have failed so far.)

With Trump's penchant for granting pardons, if not just for himself but for all his pathetic underdogs, one wonders if justice will ever be served? Let's just hope this nightmare will end soon...

Below please find a link to an earlier report on Mr. Stephen Miller's affinity for White Nationalism--which is the background story of his separation policy.


JE comments:  Truly an unsavory character.  What is Mr Miller's alleged expertise--i.e., what type of advice is he supposed to give to Trump?  Of course, if Miller or one of his defenders cares to write in, I'll post the response.  In particular, I've never seen a rationale for the family separations.  Is it simply to send the proverbial "strong message" to potential immigrants?

Leo, your childhood experience adds incalculable weight to your indictment.  If I may ask, tell us more about the sedatives used to quiet the Danish children during the escape to Sweden.  How were these medications obtained?  Was the goal to "knock them out" during the tense wait on the beach?  This is one aspect of the Holocaust we rarely hear or read about.
