Most, if not all Americans can trace their lineage to at least one family member, who at one point in history, left their homeland for a new life in the United States.
The irony and hypocrisy of Stephen Miller is that while he is a direct descendant of Jewish immigrants who left their homes for a better life in America a century ago, he is preventing new Americans from completing the same journey. Not only is he vehemently against immigrants who are undocumented, he is also vehemently against those who are documented and have followed the legal process to become citizens.
America is supposed to be like a salad bowl, where citizens of all shapes, sizes, colors and backgrounds can live and thrive together. If Mr. Miller and those who thought like him had their way, this particular salad bowl would be rather dull and colorless.
Mr. Miller is a shande to both the American Jewish community and to the overall country at large. I am sorry to call him both an American and a member of the Jewish people.
