Congressional Democrats call for Stephen Miller's resignation: "A known white nationalist"

Emails leaked last year revealed that Miller promoted ideas from white nationalist publications

FEBRUARY 15, 2020 1:52AM (UTC)

Democratic congressional leaders have demanded the resignation of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller in a joint resolution, saying "his white supremacist, anti-immigrant ideology has no place in our country."

The text of the resolution condemned "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."

It referred to published emails in which Miller encouraged the right-wing publication Breitbart "to incorporate white supremacist, racist and eugenics ideologies in its news coverage" and urged the website to refer favorably to former President Calvin Coolidge's racist 1924 immigration law. The resolution also noted that a former Breitbart editor said Miller would try to "'spin a narrative where immigrants of color were not only dangerous, violent individuals but also posed an existential threat to America."

Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, issued a statement Thursday about the resolution saying that "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."
