The announcement of a new life entering the world is usually the cause for joyous celebration, even in the dystopian world created by the Trump administration.
The announcement today by Katie Rose Miller — the wife of Senior White House advisor Stephen Miller, the architect of Donald Trump’s intolerant immigration policies and his child separation schemes — that the couple had welcomed the arrival of their new daughter was met by comments by many social media denizens that were far from any expected congratulations.
Mackenzie Jay Miller was born on November 19, but Ms. Miller delayed posting the first photos of the young and innocent spawn of a despicable bigot on Twitter until today.
Judging from the reactions to her tweet, she may be wishing that she never bothered to make such a public notification about their newborn.
Now give us the child and let us lock her up. And then leave her orphaned.
Perhaps now you will understand why you both are universally hated. You think you get to smile with your children while torturing those who wish to protect their children and orphaning them.

Those days are coming. Somebody somewhere will tell this child the truth and mom and dad will have to explain themselves.

I feel awful for the baby.

Don't forget, Katie Rose was 100% behind those separations. Neither is fit to parent a child.

Actually, being separated from her biological donors and raised in a loving, open-minded family might be the best thing that could happen to this innocent child…

Is it too early to call CPS?

Unfortunately, neither one of them has the compassion or empathy to hear your wise & thoughtful words. You can't get blood from a stone and you can't get compassion from a monster. Warmest blessings, Preising.

Shocked they didn’t name it Eva.

Imagine poor Mackenzie when she comes of age and starts looking back at these Twitter responses sent about her birth.
It will be a sad moment, but nothing compared to the heartbreak suffered by the families separated because of her parents’ sick and deviant actions to keep immigrants out of a country founded on the theft of the land of its native inhabitants by an earlier generation of immigrants.
Civility is a wonderful thing to exercise in the best of times, but when faced with an evil of this magnitude, it’s simply too much to expect of decent people to remain polite.
Stephen and Katie Rose Miller deserve every malediction thrown their way.
