Trump Preparing to Name Ken Cuccinelli Immigration Czar

HeadlineMay 24, 2019

President Trump is preparing to name former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as “immigration czar” to oversee the Trump administration’s hard-line immigration policies, in a new role that won’t require Senate confirmation. Cuccinelli is a climate change denier who ran unsuccessfully for Virginia governor in 2013. As a state lawmaker in Virginia, Cuccinelli authored legislation seeking to force employees to speak English in the workplace, and he unsuccessfully fought to eliminate the 14th Amendment’s birthright citizenship clause.
