White House senior adviser Stephen Miller was called a fascist earlier this week while dining at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C., according to the New York Post.

Miller, a 32-year old White House aide, is reportedly the author of some of the Trump administration's most controversial immigration policies, including the most recent "zero-tolerance" practice of prosecuting all adults who cross the United States border illegally and separating them from their children in the process.

In a previous interview with the Atlantic's McKay Coppins, Miller said that he had seen "value" in "constructive controversy-with the goal of enlightenment". So news website Splinter responded Wednesday by publishing his personal phone number, suggesting readers "call him about it".

Even as criticism and opposition to the family separation policy grows, Politico reported that Miller and other aides have been planning increased immigration raids and other actions in the lead-up to the 2018 midterms.

"Twitter remains a place where users are regularly subjected to harassment based on their sexuality, religion, race, or having a wrong opinion that day", wrote Splinter editor Katherine Krueger.

Miller is one of the administration's most hardline conservatives on immigration policy, which has stalled in Congress.

"No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement", Miller told the Times in the intervie which sparked controversy amid fallout from Trump's child separation policy.

The social media site later announced it was no longer blocking accounts because Mr. Miller's cell was "no longer a valid number".
