Stephen Miller’s Influence on Immigration Policy — and Throughout the Administration

The fingerprints of White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller appear on many of the Trump administration’s harshest immigration policies, from travel bans to refugee admissions caps. American Oversight is investigating how one of the president’s most loyal and long-serving advisers has shaped the administration’s hardline positions, and how he and his allies have inserted themselves at agencies across the federal government.

Background

Quietly working behind the scenes and skillfully avoiding getting frequent mentions in the paper trails of various agencies, White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller has remained one of President Donald Trump’s most influential aides. He has been the architect of the administration’s Muslim-country travel ban, the defender of zero-tolerance family separation, the advocate of reducing refugee admissions, and the promoter of rules that would allow the government to deny green cards to immigrants considered likely to use public assistance.

Reports also indicate that he not only has the president’s ear, but that he has gone so far as to place across the administration handpicked appointees with the same hardline immigration views. An August 2018 Vanity Fair article said that he has installed appointees who were “high up enough that they would know everything but not high up enough that they would be in the public spotlight or need Senate confirmation.” And in August 2019, the Washington Post reported that he will “surprise lower-level staffers with phone calls urging them to implement his ideas.”

Throughout his years of influence, Miller has reportedly put things in writing only rarely, “eschewing email in favor of phone calls,” as the Post reported, with written communications from his allies “often viewed as the expression of Miller’s wishes.” But his minimized email use hasn’t stopped American Oversight from investigating his magnified clout, filing Freedom of Information Act requests across the federal government for communications with Miller or his close allies and team members. Below is a timeline of documents we’ve received so far that reference meetings or communications with Miller, beginning in the early days of the Trump administration.

Timeline

January 2017

On Jan. 22, just two days after Trump’s inauguration, then-DHS official Gene Hamilton sent an email that says, “Stephen Miller asked me to schedule a time with Steve Bannon this evening to discuss some matters.”

Miller was included in correspondence between White House officials and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. The communications, over several months, can be found here, and show Miller’s connections with USTR officials Payne Griffin and Christopher Jackson.

February 2017

A congressional question for the record to a Justice Department nominee alleged that Miller called a U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York to tell him how to defend the administration’s travel ban.

On Feb. 8, Sam Clovis, who was White House liaison at the Department of Agriculture (and former co-chairman of the Trump campaign), sent an email to Miller with the subject line “I Need Your Help.” A week later, Clovis sends another email to give Miller “a heads up” about something (substance redacted).

March 2017 

On March 2, Ivanka Trump (using her personal email account), Miller and other officials exchanged communications regarding child-care policy.

Clovis emails Miller on March 6, ending his email with the sentence “Keep giving them hell.” The next day, Clovis provides Miller with VA Secretary David Shulkin’s “personal VA email.”

EPA official Ryan Jackson’s calendars show a lunch on March 17 with former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and Miller. Pruitt’s calendar indicates that the meeting was to discuss the “Climate Agenda” and also included the White House’s McLaurine Klingler and Robert Gabriel.

April 2017

On April 21, Miller asked about the opening of ICE’s Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office.

On April 24, Rob Porter invites Miller and other White House officials to weekly “trade policy” meetings set to begin the next day.

June 2017

On June 15, Miller exchanged emails with John Zadrozny, Gene Hamilton, Frank Wuco, and Francis Cissna about the fifth anniversary of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

On June 29, then-Labor Secretary Alex Acosta met with Miller and John Zadrozny, the special assistant to the president.

July 2017

On July 10, ICE Senior Adviser Jon Feere appears to email Miller about two Breitbart articles that included old quotes from Miller, saying that it “may be necessary” for Miller to defend then-ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan.

Before an ICE “internal meeting on the recalcitrant country index” on July 12, Feere appears to email Miller to propose a “very significant angle” and to “make sure whatever is proposed is consistent with your vision.”

August 2017

White House official Peter Navarro included Miller in a request for a meeting about border wall bids on Aug. 23.

Feere shared five news articles about DACA on Aug. 30 with Miller and other officials, including Zadrozny, Gene Hamilton, Kathy Nuebel Kovarik and Zina Bash.

September 2017

On Sept. 1, Scott Lloyd, the former director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, shared a report on the Unaccompanied Alien Children Program that Miller had requested. Also that day, an NSC official shared with Jared Kushner, Dina Powell and Miller information about “China’s position paper on key UN issues.”

On Sept. 5, Feere emailed Miller, Hamilton, Nuebel Kovarik, and Francis Cissna about “Errors & omissions on DACA’s External Affairs Guidance.” That same day, Feere and Zadrozny exchange emails, copying Miller, about Sen. Dick Durbin’s recent statements about the border wall.

On Sept. 7, Feere accepted a calendar invitation from Miller for a “DPC/DOJ Weekly Immigration Policy Meeting.” These regular meetings appear in the documents available here and here.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue had a meeting with Miller on September 25.

October 2017

Miller hosted a “Principals Committee meeting” on the president’s immigration strategy on Oct. 2. An invitation sent on Sept. 27 listed the following attendees: Jeff Sessions, Rex Tillerson, Alexander Acosta, Tom Price, Elaine Duke, Mick Mulvaney, John Kelly, Kirstjen Nielsen, Andrew Bremberg, Sarah Sanders, Hope Hicks, Mercedes Schlapp, Marc Short, Rick Dearborn, Don McGahn, Tom Bossert and Rob Porter.

On Oct. 5, Perdue had a call with Miller. Zadrozny adds Miller to an email, originally from White House immigration adviser David Wetmore, with the subject line “Operation Janus Denaturalization and Fraud Identification Project Funding.”

Later that month, on Oct. 30, Acosta had a call with Miller.

November 2017

On Nov. 21, Feere and Miller exchanged a number of emails about “ICE equities in FY18 Appropriations Bill.”

On Nov. 23, Feere emailed Miller about “Appropriations”; Miller responded, “Thank you. Keep pushing.”

December 2017

HHS’ Scott Lloyd met with Miller at Miller’s office on Dec. 1 to discuss “Unaccompanied Alien Children.” Later that afternoon, Miller asked Feere to call him about prominent California politicians (Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom and Jerry Brown) being “silent on Steinle verdict.”

Feere sent Miller a long email with “Ideas for swift action” on Dec. 7.

On Dec. 22, ICE Senior Adviser Jon Feere sent Miller an email with “Progress updates,” which Homan had not seen in advance. That same day, Miller, Feere and other officials emailed about “Bitcoin terrorist update.” (Read more about that here.)

On Dec. 23, Miller emailed Feere, Zadrozny and others about a statement on “Immigration Backgrounds of Recent Terror-Related Suspects.” Other emails were exchanged about a “Shooting Incident in Harrisburg, PA.”

January 2018

Miller was included, along with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Kellyanne Conway, Margaret Peterlin, Brian Hook, Mercedes Schlapp and others, on a Jan. 2 State Department email with the subject line “FOR REVIEW: UN vote on Jerusalem.”

Emails exchanged by ICE officials, including Feere, on Jan. 11 and 12 indicate that they were anticipating a visit from someone at the White House, likely Miller.

Lloyd had another call with Miller on Jan. 12. That same day, Jon Lerner, the deputy to UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, emailed with Miller about “Foreign Aid Plan.”

On Jan. 15, in advance of a “noon call,” Miller received a draft report on how many “individuals convicted of international terrorism-related chargers” were “foreign-born.” The report, released the next day, was required by a March 2017 executive order.

February 2018

Miller emailed Zadrozny and Feere on Feb. 12. On Feb. 26, Feere shared with, apparently, Miller the resume of a Treasury official with the goal of getting that official a position at the Social Security Administration in order to “help with information-sharing issues.” (On March 10, a response from Miller says, “Adding [redacted] to make it happen with SSA.”)

March 2018

A March 6 call on immigration on DHS senior official Chad Wolf’s calendar lists a participant as “Miller” — there’s no first name, but it is likely Miller.

Miller received an email on March 8 from Feere, with the subject line “Ask from Director Homan.”

Miller exchanged emails with Paul Ryan staffer Casey Higgins on March 17.

On March 22, Miller, then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and Wolf met at the Oval Office to discuss the omnibus spending bill.

Feere emailed Miller, Zadrozny and Special Assistant to the President Theo Wold about missing a meeting on March 23.

Miller and Feere emailed about “border initiatives” on March 27.

April 2018

On April 9, HHS Secretary Alex Azar had a call with Miller.

On April 20, Secretary Perdue emailed Miller to ask him whether he had “time to chat briefly” that evening and thank him for a call they had two days before. He said he as “providing some additional information that may be helpful” and that “We want to be helpful.” Miller thanked him, saying it was “very helpful.”

Clovis emailed Miller on April 23 to “update [Miller] on a couple of things.”

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer participated in a phone call with Miller and Sen. Marco Rubio on April 26.

On May 29, Miller sent an email that said, “From October through December of 2017, only 5 UACs [unaccompanied alien children] were removed from the country while more than 7,000 were released into the interior.”

June 2018

Miller had a call with then-Deputy Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan on June 4.

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner includes Miller on an Aug. 16 email with Secretary Perdue about arranging a meeting.

La Influencia de Stephen Miller en la Política de Inmigración y a Través de la Administración

La huella del alto funcionario de la Casa Blanca, Stephen Miller, aparece en muchas de las políticas de inmigración más duras de la administración de Trump. Se ven desde la prohibición de viajes hasta la reducción de admisiones para refugiados. American Oversight está investigando como uno de los consejeros más fieles y duradero de Trump ha dado forma a las posiciones más rígidas de esta administración, y como él y sus aliados se han insertado a sí mismos en agencias a través del gobierno. 

El Contexto

Trabajando silenciosamente y evitando hábilmente ser mencionado en los rastros de papeles de otras agencias, el consejero a la Casa Blanca Stephen Miller ha permanecido uno de los ayudantes más influyentes del Presidente Donald Trump. Él ha sido el arquitecto de la prohibición de viaje contra ciudadanos de países de mayoría musulmana, un defensor de la separación familiar como parte de la política cero tolerancia, un promotor de la reducción de admisiones de refugiados, y un partidario de reglas que permitirían al gobierno a negar permisos de residencia a inmigrantes que consideran probable de usar asistencia pública. 

Informes también indican que él no solo tiene la atención del presidente, si no también tiene designados, que él ha seleccionado cuidadosamente, en varias agencias a través del gobierno que comparten el mismo punto de vista que él y una postura firme en cuanto a inmigración. Un artículo en Vanity Fair en agosto de 2018 dijo que él ha instalado designados que están “lo suficientemente alto para saber todo, pero no lo suficientemente alto para llamar la atención pública, o para necesitar confirmación del Senado.” Y en agosto de 2019, el Washington Post reportó que a veces, él “sorprende a empleados de nivel bajo con llamadas en que los urge a implementar sus ideas.” 

A lo largo de sus años de influencia, según se informa, Miller raramente pone sus ideas por escrito, y “evita los correos electrónicos en favor a llamadas telefónicas,” como el Post reportó, con comunicaciones de sus aliados “a menudo vistas como una expresión de los deseos de Miller.” Pero su uso mínimo de correo electrónico no ha parado a American Oversight de investigar su peso político. Hemos presentado demandas de la Ley de Libertad de Información a través del gobierno federal para obtener comunicaciones de Miller o sus aliados cercanos. Detallamos a continuación los documentos que hemos recibido que se refieren a reuniones o comunicaciones con Miller, comenzando con los primeros días de la administración de Trump.
