WATCH: Stephen Miller says Biden immigration bill “would fundamentally erase the very essence of America’s nationhood”

Appearing on Fox News, former Trump administration senior adviser Stephen Miller argued that President Biden’s immigration bill “would fundamentally erase the very essence of America’s nationhood”

Miller told host Maria Bartiromo “the reason why I have studied immigration so closely is that it’s so fundamental to what it is to be a nation, the right of the people living in a country to decide who enters that country, on what conditions, for how long, and how to establish national boundaries and borders. That’s fundamental to what it means to be a country.”

“The legislation put forward by President Biden and congressional Democrats would fundamentally erase the very essence of America’s nationhood,” he continued”

“For the first time, I believe in human history, this legislation proposes sending applications to previously deported illegal immigrants and giving them the chance to reenter the country on a rapid path to citizenship. This is unheard of,” he added.
