Miller was reportedly heavily involved in formulating the plan, which was repeatedly rejected by immigration officials.

Nadler has said the plan is "both morally repugnant and probably illegal."

Trump has praised Miller, but denied that he is behind the administration's immigration policy.

“Frankly, there’s only one person that's running it," he said last week. "You know who that is? It's me."
