Ocasio-Cortez Starts Petition For Stephen Miller's Resignation

Stephen Miller, White House senior advisor and Trinity '07, drew a firestorm of media attention this week after hundreds of his emails with a former Breitbart editor were reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

"Stephen Miller, Trump's architect of mass human rights abuses at the border (including child separation and detention camps with child fatalities) has been exposed as a bonafide white nationalist", tweeted Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman Democrat from NY.

Among those emails was a message from Miller to McHugh on October 23, 2015, in which he sent an article from the white nationalist website VDARE.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, "Stephen Miller must resign".

The excerpts show Miller sent a link from VDARE, an anti-immigration website that has published work by white nationalists.

Miller, an immigration hardliner who was reportedly an architect of President Donald Trump's controversial "Muslim ban", sent the emails to Katie McHugh, then an editor at Breitbart, in 2015 and 2016.

Miller encouraged McHugh to write critically-to "create a counternarrative", per the SPLC-about the removal of the Confederate flag from Amazon retailers after a church shooting in SC.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said officials had not seen the report but called the SPLC "a far-left smear organization". Hatewatch, affiliated with the Southern Poverty Law Center, has begun a series on the 900 emails, the vast majority of which deal with race and immigration.

On April 8, Omar called Miller a "white nationalist" on twitter, which caused a digital controversy in conservative circles, who cataloged Omar as "anti-Semitic" because of Miller's Jewish origins.

The SPLC obtained the hundreds of emails from McHugh, who was sacked from Breitbart in June 2017. "They are beneath public discussion". "And now we have the emails to prove it", Omar tweeted. "Miller must resign. Now". "This type of racism and hatred has no place in our government". "Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro known as Miller and Trump" a pity to our state".

Ocasio-Cortez also created a petition calling for Miller's resignation.

"Stephen Miller's white nationalist views are a danger to the American people", tweeted Sanders."We are going to defeat this hateful administration and everything it stands for". Miller and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions were the key proponents of trump's kid separation coverage, which split migrant kids from parents trying to go into the the boundary with Mexico. "Both him, and Stephen Miller, are a shame to our nation". When we're not being called rapists and criminals, we're being discriminated for speaking Spanish, are reminded that the current administration is trying to impose a billion-dollar border wall, or are being targeted by ICE.
