Tell Congress: Hate has no place in the White House

Sign the petition

The petition to Congress reads:

"White nationalist Stephen Miller developed some of the Trump administration's most cruel and racist anti-immigrant policies. To protect our communities, we must call on Congress to introduce and pass non-binding resolutions in both chambers that formally and publicly condemn Miller and his hateful agenda."

    You'll receive periodic updates on offers and activism opportunities.

    Tell Congress: Hate has no place in the White House

    It's now more clear than ever: White nationalist Stephen Miller's sole purpose in the Trump administration is to normalize and institutionalize racist anti-immigrant hate.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) recently released a series of disturbing reports that provide undeniable proof of Miller's ties to white supremacists and his commitment to make hate law.1 Congress must use all the tools at its disposal to rein him in now.

    More than 100 members of Congress have already called on Miller to resign, but that is not enough.2 To build the power we need to get Miller out of the White House, we must push Congress to introduce resolutions that condemn his racism and force every member of Congress to make clear where they stand.

    SPLC's series of reports analyzing 900 leaked emails between Miller and staffers at extremist media outlet Breitbart are setting off alarms. The reports reveal that not only is Miller parroting anti-immigrant policies and ideas developed by known eugenicists and white nationalists, but also campaigning to make them law.

    As Trump's immigration czar, Miller is succeeding at bringing those racist ideas, once considered fringe, to the mainstream and institutionalizing them. Separating families, ending the refugee program, DACA and TPS, enacting the Muslim ban, and forcing asylum seekers to remain in Mexico come straight out of Miller's nativist playbook. Worse, these policies are being enforced by many racist officials that Miller helped install in key government positions.

    So far, Miller's hateful agenda has gone unchecked. But we cannot stand by while he and xenophobes like him continue to consolidate power. Getting every Democrat and Republican of good conscience to publicly and formally condemn Miller and his white supremacist agenda will help us build up the momentum we need to push him out.

    Thanks for fighting back.
