Stephen Miller Shared a Lot of White Nationalist Material With Breitbart During the 2016 Election - 2019-11-12
The architect of Trump's hard-line immigration policy, Stephen Miller, regularly shared white nationalist reading materials with right-wing media company Breitbart during the 2016 election, according to leaked emails published by SPLC on Tuesday.
Many of the emails contain links to the website VDare, a white nationalist website known for its associations with prominent white supremacists and trafficking in racist, anti-immigrant conspiracies. The emails, leaked by a former Breitbart editor, offer a glimpse into Miller's efforts to influence media coverage and public opinion surrounding immigration (as well as other hot-button issues, such as Confederate flags).
Miller has been credited with some of the Trump administration's most controversial immigration policies and its messaging around immigration — and the leaked emails point to a troubling pipeline between white nationalist blogs and national policy.
