Democrat: Ex-Trump aide Miller should be jailed for human rights violations
By Olafimihan Oshin - 04/08/21 02:56 PM EDT
A House Democrat on Wednesday called for former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller to be jailed, citing what she called "human rights violations" at the southern border.
Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, said on The Interceptâ€™s â€œDeconstructedâ€ podcast that Miller should be "behind bars" for his role in the Trump administration's zero-tolerance border policy.
â€œI think he committed heinous human rights violations, and I think that those around him [who] helped plot this out should be held accountable, as well.â€
Escobar acknowledged that doing so will not be easy.
Migrant children weren't being trafficked, raped, dropped over fences and left wandering alone in the desert under Miller.
That pendulum can swing both ways. Do unto Republicans as you want Republicans to do unto thee, Democrats.
