Stephen Miller is a one of the main authors behind the Immigration ban, the Muslim Ban and the new ICE enforcement actions. He is a Senior Advisor to President Donald Trump. Prior to his current appointment, he was the communications director for then-Alabama senator, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as press secretary for Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Congressman John Shadegg.
He wrote this blueprint (which Trump is following closely) for Sen Sessions for the last Session of Congress (114th). The live version linked to the Senators website was removed sometime in the last week. It was downloaded and saved by our volunteers for posterity.
A few gems:
Pg 8 "In recent months President Obama has also unilaterally: removed restrictions on the admission of foreign nationals with limited terror ties; increased the admission of foreign workers by 100,000; expedited chain migration from Haiti; extended amnesty provisions for Honduran and Nicaraguan nationals; and attempted to recruit illegal immigrants for military positions even as American servicemembers are being laid off."
Pg 8 "What then is the path forward? The GOP should focus on discrete, targeted enforcement measures designed to have an outsize effect on reducing illegality, empowering immigration officers, restoring enforcement, and putting a stop to catch-and-release. These could be isolated measures, or offered as amendments to any relevant business that comes before Congress:
Pg 13: Falsehoods ""the USDA has even produced and broadcast soap opera-like “radio novelas” featuring individuals who were pressured into accepting benefits despite insisting that government assistance was not needed. USDA has also entered into a partnership with Mexico to boost welfare enrollment among non-citizens. Thanks in part to such controversial tactics, food stamp usage among immigrants has quadrupled since 2001."
