Katie Miller, press secretary to the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, and wife of Stephen Miller, a Senior Advisor to President Donald Trump, is being severely criticized over her statement about children being separated from their parents at the border. 

According to reports, Jacob Soboroff, a correspondent for NBC News, in his latest book called 'Separated' had mentioned a few quotes by Katie which has enraged Internet users. Katie is reportedly quoted saying, "My family and colleagues told me that when I have kids I’ll think about the separations differently. But I don't think so. DHS sent me to the border to see the separations myself — to try to make me more compassionate — but it didn't work."

And, when a shocked Soboroff asked her, "It didn't work? I will never forget what I saw. Seriously. Are you a white nationalist?" Katie responded, "No, but I believe if you come to America you should assimilate. Why do you need to have 'Little Havana'?" Her statements were clearly not well-received by Twitter users, who are slamming her for being extremely inconsiderate about an issue as sensitive as this. Calling her and her husband "White supremacists", many noted that they shouldn't be involved in public service, as they have no compassion towards children. 

"Yelling at white supremacists Stephen and Katie Miller while they’re eating dinner is insufficient. Banish them from public service forever," wrote one user. "Katie Miller belongs in prison for child kidnapping and child abuse. She can share a cell with her equally psychotic husband Stephen Miller. They’re both going to hell," tweeted another. 

Meanwhile, a lot of them used the opportunity to comment on her marriage to Stephen, saying it was "made in hell and destined to remain there." The tweet further reads, "They deserve each other and hopefully their contempt and hatred for black and brown humans will eventually consume them from inside out." Another shared, "Is it any wonder that Katie Miller, now pregnant, married Stephen Miller? Both monsters! Can you imagine how their child will be raised?"

And some don't seem surprised by Katie's quotes as she works with Trump's administration. "Cruelty is required and rewarded under Trump. Katie Miller — one more psychopath in the Trump administration. I never thought I’d see such visceral hate from the White House. Ugly hearts through and through." read a tweet.
