Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) called out President Donald Trump on Thursday for his disastrous border policy and even called on the White House to fire a top adviser.

The number was published by Splinter, a website under the umbrella of Gizmodo Media Group, in an article titled, "Here's Stephen MIller's Cell Phone Number, If You Need It".

Later in the day, Twitter lifted its Miller issue.

"No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement", Miller said, "It was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry, period".

"The Trump administration's policy of separating immigrant children from their families has been credited primarily to the strenuous efforts of White House advisor Stephen Miller", the article read. So news website Splinter responded Wednesday by publishing his personal phone number, suggesting readers "call him about it".

Coppins suggested that the controversy, which is sweeping social media and drawing nationwide protests, is not a deterrent for Miller, but rather one of his aims: "For Miller, the public outrage and anger elicited by policies like forced family separation are a feature, not a bug".

It's against our policies to share other people's private information on Twitter, including directly linking to that information. Twitter locked numerous accounts that posted the number, as well as some that retweeted or shared the original Splinter article. Today, we temporarily blocked accounts that shared this information until they deleted the Tweet that violated our rules.

"Directly linking to that information" also violates Twitter's rules, the microbloggiing site said.
