Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed a “sick and twisted” column by a feminist writer who is yearning for the death of Stephen Miller, one of President Donald Trump’s top advisers on immigration policy.
“This is sick and twisted,” Cruz said in a May 11 tweet in support of Miller. “Political disagreements are fine, but—especially in a time of crisis—we need more love in the world and less hate. #OneAmerica“

“I Will Personally Be Thrilled If Stephen Miller Dies of Covid-19,” said Molly Osberg’s headline at Jezebel.com.
“While I am generally loathe to wish physical harm on those I disagree with, and while I do wish Katie a speedy recovery, I’m comfortable shedding whatever objectivity I have here to say I desperately hope Stephen Miller contracts covid-19,” Osberg wrote, adding:
This is the man who has spent his entire life pursuing the idea that America’s diversity is a disease.
Trump’s supporters praise Miller for using the government’s many rules to incrementally reduce the flow of wage-cutting blue-collar and white-collar migrants into the U.S. labor market amid furious opposition from progressives and Fortune 500 lobbyists.
Under Trump’s direction, Miller and other officials are now developing plans by mid-May to trim the inflow of salary-cutting white-collar visa workers from India and China.
Numerous progressives — including immigration lawyers — have been making jokes over the news that Miller’s wife, Katie Miller, has been diagnosed with China’s coronavirus. She works as a press aide to Vice President Mike Pence.
The amount of tongue-biting a lot of us are doing right now… https://t.co/hiJrhaJ0QQ

Don’t want to joke about the virus, but the odds are pretty decent Mrs. Miller will be treated by foreign health care workers. https://t.co/jHv1WeIYVp
