House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) has stepped into one of the leadership spots left open when Donald Trump bugged out. People began noticing the representative during POTUS’ impeachment trial. Wednesday, Schiff called out the president for an ugly attempt, noting that “cruelty is the point.”
One of the top Trump advisors, Stephen Miller, has been given the responsibility for immigration. This 34-year-old’s path has been studded with cruelty. The U.S. has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases and deaths anywhere people must function in close quarters: prisons, meat processing plants, and most likely internment camps for immigrants fleeing violence in Central America.
Schiff stood up to Trump for trying to slip this wicked plan under the cover of the coronavirus pandemic:
‘We’re not going to allow Trump to withhold relief funds from states that protect immigrant families. That he would even try to extort states by using vulnerable people as leverage during a crisis of this magnitude confirms what we’ve known all along: The cruelty is the point.’
This was Trump and Miller’s plan:
‘Trump suggests any relief for states hit hard by COVID will require ending “sanctuary city” policies and turning residents over to ICE.’
