This video is being circulated by the left as DEFINITIVE PROOF that Stephen Miller is a flaming, evil RACIST.
Here’s video I dug up of Trump Advisor Stephen Miller making a racist “joke” about immigrants hiding in shadows. Would be a shame if it went viral. pic.twitter.com/T9npgrQyCi

What’s racist about this?
“Illegal immigrants in the shadows.”
Cue the outrage:

Stephen Miller is the mastermind behind all the racial problems we are having in this administration. Between Trump and Miller, they intend to convert the USA into a nation of white supremacist and slowly do away with rights to the minority races.

Oh. I missed that memo, apparently.
Would be a shame if anyone saw him and heard him

In my opinion, Steven Miller is not an attractive man (not that I am.) But the real ugliness is in his heart and soul.

Wow. Ok, then.
But… they’re missing something pretty critical here:
I’m not a fan of Stephen Miller but this is just a bad joke about illegal immigrants having to live and work undercover/in the background/to stay out of sight: “In the shadows.”

How is this racist? When did “illegal immigrant” become a race? https://t.co/tV8m9zwWE3

In fact, I’ve used similar terminology myself. Illegal immigrants, DO in fact, live in the “shadows” of society.
Illegal immigrants are fugitives from the law. PERIOD. More often than not this legal status precludes any chance at honest productivity, which leads many to gang affiliations, drugs, and a lifetime of dependence and poverty. They use fake social security numbers and IDs to try and gain employment. They avoid events or areas they think may expose them to law enforcement. They refuse to call or cooperate with law enforcement in the face of crime. THEY LIVE IN THE SHADOWS.
This is no way racist. If anything, understanding how problematic this is, and REFUSING to turn a blind eye to it, is part of actually SOLVING our immigration problem.
But the left has no intent on solving anything. They WANT to keep immigrants in the shadows. If this problem were “solved” …what would they virtue signal about?
