  • White House Looks to Use Executive Action to Crack Down on Illegal Immigrants

White House adviser Stephen Miller was accosted at a Mexican restaurant by a patron calling him a "fascist" - two nights before Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was hounded out of another south-of-the-border eatery, sources told The Post.

What triggered the latest controversy surrounding the microblogging site is a story titled "Here's Stephen Miller's Cell Phone Number, If You Need It" published by Gizmodo Media Group-owned news and opinion site Splinter.

The Times, which spoke to Miller on the record, said it conducted an "extended interview" with Miller over the weekend for an article about the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy, which includes taking kids away from their parents as they cross the U.S. -Mexico border.

"No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement", Miller said, "It was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry, period". Twitter's guidelines say users "may not publish or post other people's private information without their express authorization and permission".


The publishing of Mr. Miller personal information online, a controversial practice called "doxing", resulted in Splinter News and staffers who shared the article being temporarily suspended from Twitter.

Users who shared Miller's number were forced to delete the tweet and had their accounts locked out for several hours.

"As long as the president allows Steve Miller and others to run the show down there, we're never gonna get anywhere", said South Carolina GOP Sen.

But bowing to public pressure, the US President on Wednesday signed an executive order that reverses the separation policy.
