Trump Appoints Another Anti Immigrant Advisor

IMMIGRATION HARDLINER GETS POLICY POST: President-elect Trump appointed immigration hardliner Stephen Miller his senior policy adviser Tuesday. Miller handled national policy issues for the Trump campaign and, before that, was communication director for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Trump's nominee for attorney general. In a June profile for POLITICO Magazine, Julia Ioffe called him "The Believer" and observed that he joined Trump's campaign at an opportune time. "He's deeply connected to some of the most powerful insurgent threads in the Washington GOP, most notably Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and the Breitbart media machine," Ioffe wrote. "As an aide on Capitol Hill, he was a behind-the-scenes architect of the successful effort to kill comprehensive immigration reform in 2014." A former Senate colleague of Miller's told Ioffe that Miller's hawkish views on immigration derive from his upbringing in California, which he saw flip from red to blue as the immigrant population increased.
