Stephen Miller is one of the high profile figures in the Trump Presidency. A speechwriter and policy adviser, he is credited as the brain behind some of the administration’s most controversial policies on immigration. Miller’s hard-line, far-right politics has thus made him an unwelcome person amongst the liberals. Want a more intimate profile of the man? We have got the details right here including facts about his age, family, and much more.
Stephen Miller Bio (Age)
Stephen Miller was born on the 23rd of August 1985 in Santa Monica, California. He spent his formative years there and attended Santa Monica High School, graduating in 2002/2003. The future political adviser thereafter attended the prestigious Duke University where he studied political science, graduating in the year 2007. Stephen Miller’s journey into politics, especially his brand of far-right politics, was not an afterthought or an accident. He laid the groundwork for his future career when he was still in school.
As a high schooler, he featured on right-wing radio shows and also wrote articles outlining his conservative views on various issues including terrorism. Miller continued his antecedents while in college. He served as the president of his school’s chapter of the David Horowitz Freedom Centre – a foundation renowned for its conservative views. Stephen Miller also rose to the national spotlight for an article he wrote about a rape case that took place in his university. Dubbed the Duke Lacrosse Case, it was a 2006 criminal case in which three members of the Duke University men’s lacrosse team were falsely accused of rape by a female student. Miller’s article defended the accused persons.
Stephen Miller commenced his political career by working as an aide for two congressional members; Michele Bachman (Republican representative for Minnesota) and John Shadegg – (Republican representative for Arizona). He spent two years in this role before joining the team of long-term Alabama senator, Jeff Sessions, in 2009. Miller served as Sessions’ policy adviser and communications director and spent nearly seven years with the senator. During this time, he made inputs on various legislative plans including their battle against bipartisan legislation which would have given illegal migrants a clear path to citizenship.
Stephen Miller made a berth on the Trump team in 2016, joining his campaign as a senior policy adviser. He was then given a formal position in the administration as an adviser following Trump’s election victory. Miller has been credited with writing many of the president’s keynote speeches including his speech before the National Republican Convention, inaugural speech, and State of the Union Address. He has also been credited with spearheading some of the administration’s most polarizing policies especially a zero-tolerance policy on immigration.
Family – Parents and Wife; Is He Married?
Due to Miller’s strong opposition to immigration, many have often wondered about his own family background. Stephen Miller hails from a Jewish family. His father’s name is Michael D. Miller while his mother’s name is Miriam Miller nee Glosser. The political adviser reportedly grew up in a liberal home but switched his political ideologies after reading a book on gun control. A further examination of Miller’s family background shows that his mother hails from a family of migrants. The patriarch of the Glosser family – Wolf Leib Glosser, was originally from the village of Antopol in present-day Belarus.
He, however, fled to New York in January 1903 to escape the persecution of Jews by the Russian government. At the time of his arrival in New York, Glosser had only $8 to his name and spoke little or no English. He, therefore, worked hard and paid for other family members to come over to the states. One of them was Izzy Glosser, Miller’s maternal grandfather. The Glosser family eventually settled down in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and commenced their business – selling things out of a horse-drawn cart. From this humble beginning, The Glossers were able to expand their enterprise to a chain of supermarkets and discount departmental stores.
Stephen Miller is still very much single and has not yet tied the knot; there are also no dating rumors surrounding him. His apparent lack of a love life may be due to his busy work schedule. However, it is very much possible that Miller has a lover in his life but has chosen to shield the individual from the public. Whichever it is, Miller is quite young and still has all the time in the world to settle down and start a family.
