Over 100 Congresspeople Call For Stephen Miller’s Immediate Firing

Over the last two weeks, emails have slowly trickled out concerning controversial Trump adviser Stephen Miller. The messages, which show Miller promoting white nationalist websites have been provided by Katie McHugh, a reformed member of the alt-right who previously worked as a Breitbart editor.

The White House has largely ignored the controversy, calling it anti-Semitic and blasting the Southern Poverty Law Center,  the organization that initially received the emails. Frustrated by the Trump administrations lack of action, 107 congressman have now called for the White House to immediately fire the adviser.

A letter that was sent to President Trump was shared by Virginia Congressman Don Beyer.

The note connects Miller’s alleged White Nationalism with Trump policy, especially when it comes to immigration.

The lawmakers wrote, “Beyond the disturbing emails that Mr. Miller wrote, is the clear conclusion that he brought his dedication to white nationalism with him into your administration and transferred this hateful ideology directly into your administrations discriminatory immigration policy.”

The Democrats also noted, “Stephen Miller’s nativism was cited as a major impetus behind your decision to reject a bi-partisan compromise immigration bill that would have protected Dreamers due to his belief that a compromise would not reduce enough documented immigration.”

Rep. Beyer continued by tweeting, “‘A documented white nationalist has no place in any presidential administration, and especially not in such an influential position.’ It is unacceptable that the President’s immigration policies are being written by an avowed white nationalist. Stephen Miller must go.”
