Kushner vs. Miller: Inside the War to Determine the Future of Trump’s Immigration Policy

The two advisers have pushed opposing agendas in the White House, and it is all coming to a head before the 2020 presidential election.

President Donald Trump is dealing with an unprecedented immigration crisis as the national emergency at the US southern border shows no signs of slowing, and he is showing signs that he is moving back to the Right on this crucial issue.

Recent stories have indicated that hardliner Stephen Miller is once again gaining power in the administration. The senior adviser is said to be behind Trump’s recent shift, which has reportedly resulted in the withdrawal of Ronald Vitiello as the new head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen as Department of Homeland Security secretary.

Miller’s greatest opposition to ‘America First’ policy goals will be Jared Kushner, Trump’s other senior adviser and son-in-law who has been pushing Trump in the direction of bringing in more foreigner workers. Kushner has been influential in inviting the foxes into the hen house to dictate Trump’s immigration policy.

“I need people coming in because we need people to run the factories and plants and companies that are moving back in. We need people,” Trump said to reporters back in February, showing that the Kushner push was clearly influencing him.

While Kushner focuses his time on wooing the corporate elite, Miller remains much more skeptical of these interests pushing for cheap labor. He remains focused on nationalist goals that will help US workers above all else.

“This is about sovereignty. It’s about working men and women. It’s about safe communities. It’s about wages, living conditions, quality of life. This is the battle right now right before our very eyes,” Miller said during an appearance on FOX News last year.

Despite the policy differences, Miller and Kushner remain cordial to each other as they work in Trump’s White House, doing their part to make sure that any disagreements they may have do not hold back the administration.

“Any suggestion that Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller have anything but a cordial and professional relationship would be misplaced,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the House Freedom Caucus leader, to the Washington Post. “Over and over, I’ve seen them work together on policy issues and deep deliberations that have the potential for being contentious, but there is mutual respect.”

But certain observers think that the friendliness isn’t likely to last long with the 2020 presidential election looming and time running out to achieve results on the border.

“The clock is ticking on all this stuff,” said a former Trump official who is still connected to the White House to McClatchy DC. “There is no way that Stephen can continue to push a very hard right restrictionist policy and for Jared to be pushing a middle-of-the-road, slightly left of center policy, and something doesn’t come in conflict.”

Trump will ultimately have to decide the fate of his immigration policy when it is all said and done. If Miller wins out, an ‘America First’ immigration policy is possible. If Kushner wins out, it will be back to the Chamber of Koch open border status quo.

President Donald Trump Reduced Afghanistan War Casualties by 98 Percent Compared to Obama’s First Term

This is what “America First” foreign policy is all about.

President Donald Trump’s foreign policy achievements have largely been hidden from the public, with the fake news media and Democrats preferring to focus on fake Russian collusion stories rather than highlighting the president’s efforts to get the troops out of harm’s way.

Libertarian-leaning Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) pointed out the facts regarding the president’s foreign policy record, showing that Trump’s foreign policy in Afghanistan has resulted in a sharp reduction in casualties in America’s longest war:

The majority of Obama’s casualties came in his first term, when he doubled down on the Afghan war with a troop surge. He sent more troops into harm’s way without anything to show for it except for more blood. There were an incredible 2,196 troops killed in Afghanistan during Obama’s first term, and he was given a Nobel Peace Prize before his brutal policies ever really took effect.

Big League Politics reported earlier this month when President Trump pledged to bring all U.S. troops home from Afghanistan by Christmas:

President Trump issued a surprise announcement on the American military presence in Afghanistan, stating that all troops would be removed from the country by Christmas in a Wednesday evening tweet.

The announcement represents a new imperative to end the American presence in Afghanistan, which has qualified as the lengthiest war in American history.

Deep State bureaucrats have consistently fought to stonewall President Trump’s initiative to end American involvement in the failed state once and for all.

Afghanistan has been made the beneficiary of billions of dollars in American foreign aid and military assistance, but the nation’s government is still largely unable to stand on its own two feet. The Afghan Taliban continues to govern large swathes of the country, and regularly carries out terrorist attacks that inflict significant casualties on the Afghan Army.

Joe Biden is largely silent on Afghanistan, stating that he’ll end the war but clarifying that he only plans to return home the “majority” of service members stationed in the country. President Trump has already withdrawn thousands of American military personnel deployed to the country. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has been overseeing efforts to reach a final peace agreement with the Taliban in which they’d recognize the country’s feeble government.

The leaked Afghanistan Papers have revealed an enduring pattern of misconduct and deception on the part of senior government officials, who regularly sugarcoated the progress that the military was making in installing a Jeffersonian-style democracy in the troubled central Asian nation. Afghanistan is bitterly divided along sectarian, tribal and religious lines, and the region’s involvement in the decline of the Soviet Union and the British Empire have led some to style it as the “graveyard of empires.”

President Trump has made great progress toward putting the troops first despite tremendous institutional impediments from the military-industrial complex. He is clearly the peace candidate, running against the reckless imperial foreign policy of Obama/Biden, on the ballot for this election.
