ADC Joins 54 Civil Rights Orgs Demanding to Remove Stephen Miller
Washington D.C. | www.adc.org | November 19th 2019
The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee, the nation’s largest grassroots Arab-American civil rights organization, joined 54 other civil rights organizations in sending a letter to President Donald Trump demanding that he fire Stephen Miller as his senior adviser for policy for propagating white supremacist, anti-immigrant sentiments.
The letter highlights Miller’s promotion of hate speech spewed by neo-Nazis and white supremacists and emphasizes that his white supremacist agenda — including the Muslim Ban and family separation at the southern border — has actively harmed immigrants, people of color and marginalized communities. The letter notes, “Allowing him to remain a White House advisor is a betrayal of our national ideals of justice, inclusion, and fairness.”

Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) revealed a series of white supremacist, racist, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim emails sent by Miller to Breitbart News. Breitbart News is a white supremacist mouthpiece that traffics in misogynistic and racist stories targeting women, people of color and immigrants.

-Literature that includes the white nationalist and neo-Nazi themes of “white genocide” or “great replacement” of whites with nonwhites
-Include immigration stories that selectively covered of offenses committed by nonwhites
-Protect the sales of confederate flags on Amazon and protecting Confederate monuments
-Limit or end immigration, including Muslim migration
