Steven Miller large and in charge

I'm not in favor of withdrawing citizenship from anyone. But if we do it, I hope they start with Steven Miller. He really is a malevolent piece of work who should be sent back to his shithole planet: 
The Trump administration is expected to issue a proposal in coming weeks that would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare, four sources with knowledge of the plan told NBC News. 
The move, which would not need Congressional approval, is part of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller's plan to limit the number of migrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year. 
Details of the rulemaking proposal are still being finalized, but based on a recent draft seen last week and described to NBC News, immigrants living legally in the U.S. who have ever used or whose household members have ever used Obamacare, children's health insurance, food stamps and other benefits could be hindered from obtaining legal status in the U.S. 
Immigration lawyers and advocates and public health researchers say it would be the biggest change to the legal immigration system in decades and estimate that more than 20 million immigrants could be affected. They say it would fall particularly hard on immigrants working jobs that don't pay enough to support their families.
This is  a sickening attempt to gin up the base for November and create even more division in this country for entirely cynical reasons. Also, Miller, Sessions and Trump are xenophobic monsters.

America needs immigrants. They are the backbone of our culture. Immigration is what keeps us dynamic, growing and changing. These disgusting racists want to stop that and in the process they are destroying the country.
