Former Pence homeland security and counterterrorism adviser Olivia Troye explained that Donald Trump and Stephen Miller actively impeded the Special Immigrant Visa programs that would have rescued Afghan allies looking for a path to U.S. residency.
In an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night, Miller said “those advocating for mass Afghan resettlement are doing so for political and not humanitarian reasons,” adding that it would also be too expensive.
“The United States of America never, ever, made a promise, written or unwritten, to the people of Afghanistan that if after 20 years, they were unable to secure their own country, that we would take them to ours. That is nonsense. That has never been US government policy,” Miller said.
