It's no secret that President Donald Trump's Senior Policy Advisor, Stephen Miller, is a white nationalist. He's sought to ban undocumented children from public schools, he's been the architect of Trump's Muslim ban, and championed his family separation policy.

While Miller's racism was well-known by Americans across the country, a new, in-depth report by the Southern Poverty Law Center reveals the disturbing extent of Miller's devotion to Nazi-era principles and belief in racist ideologies.

The report reveals that Miller, back when he was merely a Trump campaign staffer, shared hundreds of emails with Breitbart staff, using white nationalist website VDARE to shape political narratives praising the racist book Camp of the Saints, both of which push the racist "white genocide" theory that immigrants of color are replacing and corrupting a white majority.

The lengthy story from SPLC examined over 900 emails, the majority of which contain white nationalist texts or rhetoric, highlighting Stephen Miller's fixation on white supremacy and xenophobia.

Now, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is pointing out that Miller's disturbing beliefs are still shaping White House policy, demanding his resignation.

Ocasio-Cortez has long been a vocal opponent of Miller's presence in the White House and the barbaric immigration policies he's facilitated Trump in implementing. Miller, in the past, has said Ocasio-Cortez doesn't put America first.

Ocasio-Cortez isn't the only one calling Miller out. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who faced backlash for calling Miller a white nationalist earlier this year, is reiterating the point in light of even more information corroborating it.

Legions of others are calling for Miller's resignation.

Miller's continued presence in the White House speaks volumes.

In a response, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said she hadn't read the report, but criticized the SPLC as a "discredited, long-debunked, far-left smear organization."

Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) came under fire last month after news broke that she sold millions of dollars of stocks after a senators-only briefing on the virus that's caused a global pandemic. This was just before the stock market plummeted by thousands of points in the face of uncertainty in the national health crisis.

Loeffler also invested in Citrix, a telework software company, just before millions of Americans began working from home.

But she wasn't done yet.

During the global pandemic, unemployment has ballooned in the United States.

Not only do those people need unemployment benefits, which Congress addressed in the relief package created in the Democratically controlled House of Representatives, but many also lost their health insurance with their jobs.

The pandemic that thrust the United States into a national health crisis was repeatedly dismissed by President Donald Trump during its early stages, when prevention was most feasible.

Trump ignored simulations and intelligence briefings that warned the United States was not prepared for a pandemic. Then, the first US cases began getting diagnosed.

This is constantly proving to be untrue.
