IMMIGRATION/STEPHEN MILLER/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Stephen Miller, one of the key architects of President Trump’s hard-line immigration agenda, is the descendant of Jewish immigrants who arrived to a welcoming United States at the turn of the 20th century. But in an essay posted online Monday [8-13-18], Dr. David S. Glosser, Mr. Miller’s uncle, argues that the family would have been turned away if the immigration policies currently backed by Mr. Trump and Mr. Miller were in place at the time…The article was a notable rebuke by a family member to Mr. Miller, who is one of the most fervent public defenders of Mr. Trump’s immigration policies — the ban on travelers to the United States from several Muslim countries, the separation of families crossing the border illegally and the drastic reduction in the number of refugees admitted to the United States. In the article, Mr. Glosser related in detail the story of Wolf-Leib Glosser, who arrived on Ellis Island in 1903 from the village of Antopol in Eastern Europe, fleeing persecution and forced conscription. Wolf-Leib Glosser was Mr. Miller’s great-grandfather on his mother’s side, writes Mr. Glosser.”
