In Donald Trump's often chaotic White House, Stephen Miller, his strategist and communications adviser, has emerged as perhaps the scrappiest survivor. This week, Miller's hand was seen in the president's tough new demands for immigration reform as a condition for protecting the so-called "Dreamers," illegal immigrants brought here as children. Just weeks ago, Trump had seemed to signal he was open to a bi-partisan deal – one that might even delay construction of his promised "beautiful border wall." But the White House's latest hard line seems to make that unlikely. Lisa Mascaro, who covers Congress for the Los Angeles Times, has a profile of the Santa Monica High School grad who became an immigration hard-liner and top Trump advisor.
