Miles Taylor, the Department of Homeland Security’s chief of staff during the Trump administration, said this week that former President Donald Trump once asked his team to find murderers, rapists, and criminals at the border and to have them sent to Democrat-run cities.
Taylor made this statement during an appearance on CNN this week while weighing in on how Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ have been sending migrants to places like New York and Martha’s Vineyard, respectively.
Taylor is best known for penning a 2018 op-ed article in The New York Times that said there was a “resistance” within the Trump administration. He has since become a vocal critic of the former president.
“In January and February of 2019, Donald Trump directed us to go and take immigrants from the border and, quote, ‘bus and dump them into Democratic cities and blue states,'” Taylor told CNN.
“But he was much more specific,” Taylor said of Trump. “He wanted us to identify the murderers, the rapists, and the criminals, and, in particular, make sure we did not incarcerate them, and we put them in those cities.”
