Two Democratic lawmakers took action calling for the resignation of White House adviser Stephen Miller.
California Sen. Kamala Harris and Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro introduced a resolution on Thursday after emails emerged of Miller sharing articles from white nationalist media outlets, seemingly using them as justification for his immigration stances.
The article goes on to state the following:
The resolution has been sponsored by several members of Congress, including Sens. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Ron Wyden of Oregon, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. In the House, Reps. Judy Chu of California, Karen Bass of California, Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, and Brad Schneider of Illinois.
From THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER (SPLC):
On Tuesday, the Southern Poverty Law Center published the first of several stories investigating Miller’s fondness for using white nationalist sources and texts in communications with Breitbart News.
An analysis of over 900 emails from 2015 and 2016, which were given to the SPLC by former Breitbart News editor Katie McHugh, shed light on Miller’s emails that pushed nationalist literature and racist immigration stories. McHugh, who has since abandoned her previous ties to the white nationalist movement, told Hatewatch on Thursday that she provided the emails because she “experience[d] the evil [of] the far right and white supremacy in person, and we all see the violence they inflict on the country, particularly on the most vulnerable.”
“They must never be allowed near positions of power,” she continued. “I will do everything I can to ensure this never happens again.”
Lawmakers, journalists and activists reacted quickly to the stories. Miller’s anti-immigrant views and relationships with white nationalists Peter Brimelow and Richard Spencer had been well known for some time. But the emails, in McHugh’s view, provided evidence that, as she told The New York Times, “a clear line” existed between the “white supremacist websites where [Miller] is getting his ideas to current immigration policy.”
From the resolution:
Condemning Stephen Miller for trafficking in bigotry, hatred, and divisive political rhetoric and for promoting policies that are inconsistent with the trust and confidence placed in him as a Senior Advisor to the President, and express- ing the sense of the Senate that Stephen Miller should immediately resign from office.
Harris published the following press release:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) and Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) on Thursday introduced a resolution condemning the presence of white nationalist Stephen Miller in the White House and called for his immediate resignation from office. The resolution outlines Miller’s consistent advocacy of racist and white supremacist ideology. Miller’s work in the Administration has encouraged a resurgence of racism and bigotry and helped create a climate of fear, danger, and violence for communities of color and immigrants.
“Stephen Miller is the hateful force behind the cruel and xenophobic policies that have defined the Trump administration. His white supremacist, anti-immigrant ideology has no place in our country, let alone the White House,” said Senator Harris. “I’m proud to lead this effort on behalf of immigrant families in California and throughout the country.”
“It is unacceptable for the Trump Administration to knowingly install a known white nationalist and believer of white supremacist ideology in a position of power and influence over federal policy. Stephen Miller’s presence in the Trump White House has allowed him to sow hate into federal policy, grind our immigration system to a halt, and encourage the President’s own xenophobic beliefs,” saidCongressman Castro. “Americans, and in particular the Latino community, will never forget it was President Trump and Stephen Miller’s hateful rhetoric that helped inspire the deadly attack in El Paso where 22 individuals were killed for being Latino. When we see the families suffering at the border or being torn apart by ICE raids, we can look to Stephen Miller as the main architect of the Administration’s cruel anti-immigrant policies. He must be removed from the White House immediately to stop further damage to our country and our communities.”
“From racist policies at the border to coddling white supremacists, this administration has stoked division and pitted our people against each other. Stephen Miller’s record is one of hatred and cruelty. He has no place in the White House,” said Senator Wyden.
“White nationalism has no place in the White House – period,” said Senator Blumenthal.
Harris also requested Miller’s ouster in a letter to the White House in December.
