(TargetLiberty.org) – A former senior advisor in the Trump White House has founded a new conservative legal team to push back against the current administration’s controversial policies. Stephen Miller, who helped draw up the policies that saw illegal immigration slashed under President Trump, says his group will counterbalance the ACLU’s influence.
In a statement released on April 7, Miller said the new group, America First Legal, will work with Republican attorneys general to fight back against Leftist abuse of the legal system. He called the use of the courts to block Trump’s policies a “years-long, one-sided legal assault” – and said it’s time for Conservatives to push back.
Trump was quick to back the initiative, and hailed Miller as a “fearless, principled fighter for the America First movement.”

Structured as a nonprofit, America First Legal is drawing on expertise from the last administration; as well as Miller himself. Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is also on the organization’s board.
