Stephen Miller has come to admire the effectiveness—and aggressiveness—of the legal campaign Democrats and their supporters mounted against the Trump administration’s agenda.
Now, the former senior White House adviser during Donald Trump’s presidency hopes to return fire.
The article goes on to state the following:
Mr. Miller, an architect of the last administration’s restrictive immigration policies and a leading backer of its socially conservative initiatives, is launching this week a new organization, America First Legal, to challenge Biden administration initiatives at odds with Trump-era priorities.
Miller, 35, decided to form the new group to fight back against Biden’s policies after being on the receiving end of efforts by leftist groups such as the ACLU, whose relentless lawsuits constantly blocked efforts by the Trump administration.
The report states that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker both sit on the organization’s board of directors. Former Attorney General William Barr has also given private encouragement to Miller for the project.
Miller said he has raised “a tidy sum of money” to get the group started and pay for initial staff and finance their first cases. AFL will begin soliciting small and medium-size donations soon, but the initial funds have come from donors who can also “write very large checks,” Miller said.
Longtime Trump advisor Jason Miller had tweeted Tuesday night, “Busy morning coming up Wednesday for President Trump and the MAGA movement – be sure to eat your Wheaties tomorrow! #AmericaFirst.”

Former President Donald Trump released the following statement Wednesday morning:
“Stephen Miller is a fearless, principled fighter for the America First movement. He has backbone, integrity and never gives up. As we know, the Radical Left has been relentless in waging their battles in court.
“Conservatives and America First supporters badly need to catch up and turn the tables, which is why I applaud @StephenM and @MarkMeadows for rushing to fill this critical void. The era of unilateral legal surrender must end—and I hope all America First patriots will get behind America First Legal.”

Miller shared a link to the Wall Street Journal report, along with a press release on Wednesday, and wrote, “Today, I am proud to officially announce the launch of America First Legal to defend our principles and fight the lawless onslaught from the new Administration.”

In a press release, Miller also provided the following information:
AFL will be forward-leaning, seeking to take meaningful action to defend the rights of Americans whenever and wherever possible. Without being encumbered by a single-issue focus or the need for credit, AFL will focus its efforts on resisting the radical left’s agenda and preserving our shared national values, collaborating with like-minded partners across the nation, including state attorneys general.
AFL will use the experiences of deeply-accomplished attorneys—intimately familiar with the inner workings of the Executive Branch—including Gene Hamilton, who served during the Trump administration as Counselor to the U.S. Attorney General at the Department of Justice and as Senior Counselor to the Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security.
“For too long, conservative and traditionalist Americans have been outflanked, outspent, out-organized, and outmaneuvered by radical progressive legal organizations. It has been a years-long, one-sided legal assault. The consequences for American values, American society, and the American Constitution have been tragic and profound,” said AFL President Miller. “Whenever the Trump Administration tried to implement positive, lawful change that put America First, these extremist organizations filed one lawsuit after another, shopping for the most favorable legal forum. Now, we must turn the tables.”
“While radical progressives have wielded these tactics to undermine the law and America First values for years, we must deploy these tactics in defense of our nation’s legal, cultural, and constitutional heritage,” continued AFL President Miller. “Those who believe in America First must not shy away from using our legal system to defend our society and our families from any unlawful actions by the left. Those looking to hold the new administration in Washington to account finally have their answer. Our self-imposed policy of legal disarmament is now over.”
