MP Veronica Escobar says Stephen Miller ought to be jailed for “heinous human rights abuses”.

In just one example of Miller’s cruelty: NBC News reported last year that during the previous administration had already “piloted” the family separation in the region long before former Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III officially announced Politics in May 2018 went far too slowly for Miller. He apparently wished The Up to 25,000 children are stolen by her parents, and during a meeting at the White House reportedly forced a show of hands on the procedure. Lawyers representing separated families have been looking for documents related to this meeting.

Miller deserves to be held accountable – along with Officials like former Minister for Homeland Security (DHS), Kirstjen Nielsen – but Escobar admits the reality of a system that protects powerful people like her. “This is going to be very difficult, but it kills me that these people might go away and even rebuild their reputations,” she continued in the report. “I mean, I think they’re some of the most reprehensible, hideous people our generation could ever have produced.”

While President Joe Biden has established a federal task force to reunite families separated on the southern border from the previous administration, other leaders in Congress have also expressed urgency to hold former political figures and officials like Miller accountable to pull. Late last year, Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro publicly called for the formation of a special committee to investigate this humanitarian disaster and those who caused it.

“I believe that, given the human rights violations during the Trump administration, it would be appropriate for the United States to either set up a human rights commission or for Congress to set up a select committee to investigate these violations and make recommendations for policy changes in our country do not recur and identify individuals who should be held accountable and accountable for their actions. ” Castro said Vox.

“The Commission itself would not necessarily have the power to prosecute,” he continued. “But as with other committees, information for review of legal proceedings could be passed on to the Department of Justice. Ultimately, any decision to prosecute would be separate from the Commission itself. “ Just like Escobar, fears officials like Miller could possibly go away He and other former officials from the previous administration have already planned their next steps.

According to reports, Miller is starting a group that is basically trying to pester the Biden administration with lawsuits. “Anything the president does that we think is illegal is fair game,” Miller said, according to the Wall Street Journal. You feel like it will be pretty much everything. Miller should at least be treated as a pariah, but Republicans in Congress have brought him back for advice on immigration. He was even invited to at least one campaign event. The illegally appointed former acting DHS secretary Chad Wolf, meanwhile, is opening his own consulting firm with a handful of other officials from that administration.

The illegal Chad new venture stated: “[m]Her passion continues to be to help [DHS] accomplish their mission ”, reported Politico. One of his “passions” during his time at DHS was to be one of the early architects of family separation. NBC News reported in 2019. “Back in December 2017, when Wolf was acting Chief of Staff [then-Secretary Kirstjen] He sent Nielsen a list of 16 options to limit the number of Undocumented immigrants to Gene Hamilton, advisor to then Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for review. Number two on the list: ‘Separate family units.’ ”

In her interview, Escobar also stressed the fundamental need to break away not only from the previous government, but over several decades from failed deterrence-based measures that have only resulted in the suffering of children and families. “I really feel like this is a moment of reckoning, ”she said. “And it’s a moment of reckoning when we should recognize our colossal failure in the past, but opportunity in the future.”
