Trump Advisers Blocking Deal to End Government Shutdown

White House Slams Graham

Miller, an immigration hawk, has come under fire from both Republicans and Democrats.

Politico called Miller "a pugnacious conservative who has a keen focus on restrictive immigration policy".

'His view of immigration has never been in the mainstream of the Senate, ' Graham said of Miller as negotiations to end a government shutdown fell apart Sunday.

The bipartisan deal Sen.

Miller was all but served up to the media by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters on Sunday. Dick Durbin had their immigration compromise rejected by the White House earlier this month, pointed to Miller as the reason a deal had not yet been reached.

"Every time we have a proposal it is only yanked back by staff members".

At the center of the fight is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which President Trump said past year he would rescind while providing Congress with a window of time to craft a legislative fix.

Democrats opposed the bill because it did not offer protection for illegal aliens.


Paul Begala, a Democratic strategist and CNN political commentator, was a political consultant for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign in 1992 and was counselor to Clinton in the White House. However, he believes some White House staffers are making it very hard to reach an agreement and resolve the issue that is now hurting hundreds of thousands of federal employees, low-wage federal contractors, security guards, janitors and military families.

Mr Schumer, one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington, has been one of the most vocal opponents of the President in the last three days after a meeting between the two men on Friday failed to end the deadlock. White House senior adviser Stephen Miller in particular has been a problem, he said.

'We " re doing our best to carry out what the president has laid out and to implement and communicate his principles, and Stephen's no different on that front that any of the rest of us'.

White House spokesman Hogan Hidley fired back at Graham in a statement that mirrored the senator's own language.

'As long as Sen. "He's been an outlier for years".

"As an aide on Capitol Hill, he was a behind-the-scenes architect of the successful effort to kill comprehensive immigration reform in 2014", Politico wrote in a lengthy 2016 profile of Miller. "And for us, that fight begins right here, on our campus".

Stephen Miller is now the focus of many as the Trump federal government shutdown enters its third day.
