Republican Rep. Mike Coffman demands Trump fire Stephen Miller

Comedian Samantha Bee claims she has figured out why The New York Times chose not to release the recording of their interview with embattled White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller.

Miller, a 32-year old White House aide, is reportedly the author of some of the Trump administration's most controversial immigration policies, including the most recent "zero-tolerance" practice of prosecuting all adults who cross the USA border illegally and separating them from their children in the process.

Even as criticism and opposition to the family separation policy grows, Politico reported that Miller and other aides have been planning increased immigration raids and other actions in the lead-up to the 2018 midterms.

Later in the day, Twitter lifted its Miller issue.

The Times said Tuesday that reporters Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Michael D. Shear interviewed Miller for a story that appeared in print and online last weekend.

On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order that he said would keep families at the border together while strengthening security.

Noting that Miller has not made many public appearances to discuss the policy he allegedly had a significant hand in getting implemented, the Splinter article published his phone number and encouraged readers to call or text him their thoughts. Lindsey Graham's and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos' numbers in 2016. Coppins wrote that Miller is motivated not to persuade the public of his opinions, but to "agitate" them instead.

The social media site eventually stopped penalizing users for sharing the number, saying that the number was no longer valid, possibly because Miller had suspended it or changed his number.
