Leaked Emails Show Stephen Miller's Unfiltered Anti-Immigrant Views

Source: Mother Jones



In private emails in 2015 and 2016, President Donald Trump’s top immigration adviser touted a vilely racist novel that warns of a migrant invasion, promoted the ideas of white nationalist publications, and raged at retailers who stopped selling Confederate flags in the wake of the massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina.

On Tuesday, the Southern Poverty Law Center published excerpts of emails Stephen Miller, the architect of Trump’s assaults on immigrants, sent to the right-wing outlet Breitbart. Miller’s embrace of ideas and language used by the “white replacement” conspiracy theorists who populate alt-right forums has long been known. But the unusual thing about the emails, which were provided to the SPLC by a disaffected former Breitbart editor, Katie McHugh, is that they come from a time when Miller was willing to put his ideas in writing. These days, well aware that he’s a target for Trump’s critics, he’s careful to avoid a paper trail by sticking to phone calls.

In a normal administration, the views laid out in Miller’s emails would be disqualifying. In a Trump administration, it makes him essential. In fact, many of the opinions he laid out in the emails have become part of the policies Miller has helped enact in the White House, from cutting refugee admissions to record lows to separating families at the border.

The SPLC has laid out the full range of Miller’s views disclosed in his emails on its Hatewatch blog. But here are a few of the most incendiary elements:

3. Sure he hates himself, but the majority of Americans hate him too w/ a burning hate too. He'll...

never find another home like he's got inside the WH. After he leaves, he's going to find out no matter where he goes, no matter what he does, Americans will remember and will remind this scumbag that he's unwanted, that he's a scumbag and that we want no part of his racist and ignorant views. I can't wait when rump is thrown out of the WH in 2021 after he loses the Nov. 2020 elections big time. Americans will be cheering in the streets and then we're going to roll up our sleeves, and clean the filth off of everything that these scumbags touched.

5. Okay

Stephen is a racist, bigot and would make the perfect Nazi...except for the fact that his parentage is Jewish! Maybe Trump gave Miller one of these:

6. Same thinking as 100 years ago

The New Yorker story on the deportation of radicals and Palmer Raids of 1919:
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/11/11/when-america-tried-to-deport-its-radicals


That morning’s mass deportation had been preceded by a crescendo of anti-immigrant rhetoric that will sound distinctly familiar today. “The surest way to preserve the public against those disciples of destruction,” Thomas Edward Campbell, the governor of Arizona, told a conference of newspaper editors on February 22, 1919, “is to send them back forthwith to lands from which they came.” And if native-born Americans were acting un-American, why not deport them, too? Senator Kenneth McKellar, of Tennessee, suggested that they “be deported permanently to the Island of Guam.”
