CNN’s Jim Acosta got into it with White House advisor Stephen Miller during an exchange in the White House briefing room this afternoon about an immigration proposal backed by Trump that would favor skilled workers who speak English.
“It sounds like you’re trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country,” Acosta said.
“That’s one of the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant, and foolish things you’ve ever said,” Miller responded. “The notion that you think that this is a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting.”
Acosta then got on the air and said President Trump’s “bias against Latino immigrants” has “infected” senior administration officials like Miller.
