“The emails, which Miller sent to the conservative website Breitbart News in 2015 and 2016, showcase the extremist, anti-immigrant ideology that undergirds the policies he has helped create as an architect of Donald Trump’s presidency,” the report says.
Hatewatch examined more than 900 emails sent by Miller to Breitbart between 4 March 2015 and 27 June 2016. The content of the emails shows Miller’s interest in targeting immigrants for arrest, Confederate symbols and curtailing Muslim immigration.
“Miller’s perspective on race and immigration across the emails is repetitious,” the SPLC report says. “When discussing crime, which he does scores of times, Miller focuses on offenses committed by nonwhites. On immigration, he touches solely on the perspective of severely limiting or ending nonwhite immigration to the United States. Hatewatch was unable to find any examples of Miller writing sympathetically or even in neutral tones about any person who is nonwhite or foreign-born.”
Miller shared links from white nationalist sites, including VDARE, which promotes the ‘white genocide’ conspiracy theory. The extensive emails confirm for many what they already believed about Miller, who has been seen as the architect of some of the Trump administration’s mos egregious policies.
