Stephen Miller’s hard-line policies on refugee families make a comeback

While attention is diverted by COVID-19, the Trump administration is moving to implement immigration policies in line with Stephen Miller’s hardline agenda, including keeping unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of border patrol for a longer period of time and fingerprinting all adults of households who step forward to care for them. With a new leader at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in place, Dan Diamond at Politico reports that “[t]he moves are being overseen by a team of loyalists to President Donald Trump . . . .” An official told Diamond, “It’s a team of people with very little management experience and an agenda that isn't going to end well given the current laws.”
