David S. Glosser, a retired neuropsychologist, accused both his nephew and Trump of becoming “numb to the resultant human tragedy and blind to the hypocrisy of their policy decisions.”
“I have watched with dismay and increasing horror as my nephew, who is an educated man and well aware of his heritage, has become the architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our family’s life in this country,” Glosser wrote in his piece.
Miller is credited with crafting some of the Trump administration’s most controversial immigration policies, including family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border and the travel ban, which targets immigrants from five mostly Muslim countries.

Glosser pointed out that Miller’s family has benefited from American immigration policies the Trump administration is seeking to corrode. Miller’s relatives gained citizenship though family-based immigration, which the Trump administration pejoratively refers to as “chain migration,” according to Glosser. The policy also likely helped first lady Melania Trump’s parents become U.S. citizens last week.
“President Trump wants to make us believe that these desperate migrants are an existential threat to the United States; the most powerful nation in world history and a nation made strong by immigrants,” Glosser wrote.
He continued: “Trump and my nephew both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human.”
In June, Yahoo News reported that Miller’s great-grandfather flunked his naturalization test in 1932. The report found Miller’s maternal grandparents came to Ellis Island in 1903 to escape anti-Semitic pogroms in Belarus.
“Unless your ancestors came on a slave ship or you’re Native American,” you came here as an immigrant, Jennifer Mendelsohn, who created the #resistancegenealogy hashtag, told Yahoo News.
The White House did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.

Finding Uncensored Political News Online
The time was once that we were seriously limited as to the news we received. Newspapers in the old days had to try to offer a balanced perspective – all sides of the story in a quite limited space. Television and radio news had the same limitations – and they had a very short amount of time allotted to cover everything that was going on in the world at any given time. These were not the only limitations either. News sources could only afford to print so many pages and only a select few people were qualified to be reporters or journalists. Now days though, this has changed considerably. With the advent of the internet, we can get our news much faster and there are not nearly as many time and space limitations to contend with. Because of these things, we now have a multitude of political blogs and political news sites to choose from for a daily dose of news and current events.
Nowadays, we can choose from any number of Republican blogs, for example, for our news. With a Republican blog, we are likely to get more new news on Donald Trump than we might get from differently affiliated political news sites. If you want thorough, Republican coverage for “Trump trade war,“ you can probably find it faster on Republican blogs than you can on otherwise affiliated blogs.
Of course, if you prefer to vote non-partisan, that is – not limited to or affiliated with a specific party, there are a number of political news sites out there for you as well. It is still important, especially if you are nonpartisan, to read from as many Republican blogs as you can, as well as political news sites that are affiliated with the other political parties out there. You see, if you are dedicated to any specific political party, you will be limited to that party’s candidates when it comes time to vote so you do not need to worry about what all of the other parties are doing. If you are nonpartisan, however, you can vote for any candidate from any party that you choose – that means that you need to be considerably more informed than someone who is party-affiliated. The best way to be thoroughly informed is to read news from as many political news sites as you can – that will give you exposure to more of the candidates and political parties that are out there as well as more perspectives on all of the issues that are going on in this country.
No matter where your political line might lie, it is always a good plan to gather a variety of information from political blogs or political news sites. At the very least, you will know what your opponents are up to if you read political blogs from parties other than your own. Whether you prefer Republican blogs or not, the important thing is to stay informed to the best of your ability – otherwise, you cannot hope to be an informed and responsible voter!
