White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller: We Want an Immigration System With More Assimilation

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday evening, White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller explained that we need an immigration system that will encourage proper assimilation into American culture.

Miller also argued that “if Democrats oppose a border, they are just saying they want continued, unending illegal immigration.”

“We can have an immigration system that 10, 20, 30, 50 years from now produces more assimilation, higher wages, more economic opportunity, and better prospects for immigrants and U.S.-born alike,” Miller told Carlson.

The White House has been calling for a deal on immigration that will protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients in exchange for a border wall, an end to chain migration and reform of the deeply flawed VISA lottery system.

“There are 7 billion people in the world. Most of them are good, hardworking, decent, honest, principled people. But the reality is there’s a limit to how many people any country can bring in and we as a country have a right to say we want to bring people in based on their ability to contribute to our economy, to be safe productive citizens and to uplift the nation as a whole,” Miller said of chain migration.

The Fox News appearance followed Miller’s heated exchange with CNN’s Jake Tapper, in which the host ultimately cut him off and ended the segment, which was also addressed during this interview.

After Carlson accused CNN of leaking footage of Miller being escorted off set to other news outlets, Miller accused the network of having “very low journalistic standards.”

“It’s just another example of CNN’s very low journalistic standards. I was glad to have people hear what I set on camera and off camera, which is that CNN has been extraordinarily biased, extraordinarily unfair to the president and … is not giving their viewers honest information,” he said.
