Appearing on Fox News, former Senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller blasted Biden for caving to AOC and “far left voices” on lifting Trump era refugee caps.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared victory last week after Biden’s move to lift Trump-era refugee caps.
This is a testament to the power that people’s movements, community advocates, & progressive coalitions have built.
Thankful for that and the Biden admin’s decision to respond to organizers today.
Now let’s get these families to their new homes here in the United States
AOC had previously responded to a NY Times report that “the Biden administration will keep its cap on refugee admissions at the low level set by the Trump White House, walking back an earlier pledge.”
Completely and utterly unacceptable. Biden promised to welcome immigrants, and people voted for him based on that promise.
Upholding the xenophobic and racist policies of the Trump admin, incl the historically low + plummeted refugee cap, is flat out wrong.
Keep your promise. https://t.co/A82xYf1XpR
