Participants at a meeting between Republican senators and White House senior advisers Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller found the President’s advisers’ proposal to revamp the US legal immigration system to be lacking in substance, according to a senior GOP official familiar with the presentation.
“I think folks in the room were underwhelmed” with the “whole plan” presented by Kushner and Miller, the official told CNN…
The senior administration official said Kushner, along with Miller and White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett delivered separate portions of the briefing to represent different viewpoints on the subject. Kushner approached the immigration issue from the “left,” Miller from the “right,” while Hassett offered analysis that would appeal to the business community, the official added.
“We did it that way so the right wing agreed with the Miller piece,” the official said. “The group did it together so there would be a whole of government approach.”
