Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Democrats Turn Sights on Miller As Trump Mulls Stricter Immigration Action

Recommended Posts

By Jason Hopkins -



A growing number of House Democrats are targeting White House senior adviser Stephen Miller and his influence on the Trump administration’s immigration agenda.

“Steve Miller, who seems to be the boss of everybody on immigration, ought to come before Congress and explain some of these policies,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Sunday, according to The Washington Post. Nadler, whom President Donald Trump refers to as “fat Jerry,” is one of several House Democrats that have criticized the administration’s latest immigration proposal.

The White House, on more than one occasion, pushed the Department of Homeland Security one an idea that consisted of bussing illegal immigrants and dumping them into cities that refuse to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — otherwise known as “sanctuary cities.”  The proposal was reportedly pitched by Miller.

The firestorm that followed reports of the proposal has generated more focus on Miller, a close Trump confidant since the 2016 election. The California native has been behind a number of the president’s most notable immigration policies, such as the U.S.-Mexico border wall, the travel ban against numerous Muslim-majority countries, and the “zero tolerance policy.”

Now, House Democrats may call on Miller to testify in a House committee.

Kathleen Rice, the chairwoman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee on border security, facilities and operations argues that the senior adviser must appear at her panel to “make his case for these terrible policies to the American people instead of being this shadow puppeteer.”

“It’s clear that he’s the one pulling the strings,” Rice, a Democratic representative from New York, stated. “And if he’s going to continue advocating for these policies and personnel changes, then he needs to come before the American people and explain himself. He has to be held accountable.”

However, it’s not certain that committee chairmen in the Democratic-controlled House can force Miller to the microphone.

Lawmakers do not typically call on White House advisers to testify before Congress, and presidents are able to cite constitutional separation of powers when declining to allow their executives be made available to committees.
