Influential Stephen Miller attacked by anti-semitic congresswoman…
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is under fire for claiming that White House adviser Stephen Miller is a “white nationalist:”
Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage. https://t.co/7NyMDgojd7

Miller has been particularly influential when it comes to the Trump administration’s immigration policies.
He reportedly convinced Trump to drop his original Immigration and Customs Enforcement nominee and move in a “tougher direction.”
He was also a key player in the controversial zero-tolerance policy, which resulted in the separation of families at the southern border.
Trump is reportedly considering a reinstatement of the zero-tolerance policy due to the overwhelming flood of immigrants seeking asylum.
Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was ousted on Sunday after a disagreement with the president over the policy.
Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., hit back at Omar for attacking Miller, who is Jewish, noting Omar’s history of anti-Semitic tropes:
I see that the head of the Farrakhan Fan Club, @IlhanMN, took a short break from spewing her usual anti-semitic bigotry today to accuse a Jewish man of being a “white nationalist” because she apparently has no shame. https://t.co/y96IG8E7Y6
