Stephen Miller, a former senior immigration deputy in the Trump administration, claims that President Joe Biden’s lenient migration policies are connected to recent street attacks on Jews in the United States. Miller highlighted the issue by sharing a video of anti-Israel supporters attacking Jews at a Los Angeles synagogue, attributing these incidents to Biden’s migration approach.

Miller criticized Biden for canceling the Travel Ban and allowing increased migration, which he argues has led to anti-Semitic attacks. The link between Islamic and Arab migration and anti-Semitic attacks is widely recognized. The Washington Post reported that children of refugees from Muslim nations have organized many pro-Hamas protests, showing a political awakening among young Americans.

Pro-migration supporters have been prominent in anti-Israel protests following the October 7 massacre of Jews by Islamic gunmen from Gaza. This alliance is driven by the “intersectional” claim that minority groups share common interests. Some members of racial and sexual minority groups are aligning with Islamic forces despite the potential threat to their own communities.

Gustavo Torres, leader of La Casa, led a November 6 protest in D.C., linking pro-migration advocacy to anti-Israel actions. Similarly, United We Dream posted anti-Israel tweets, condemning Israeli actions in Rafah.

More than 130 progressive pro-migration groups have declared their opposition to what they describe as genocide by Israel against Palestinians.

This merging of pro-migration and anti-Israel movements poses a challenge for the Democrats, particularly in swing states like Michigan. Sam Baydoun, a Wayne County commissioner in Dearborn, Michigan, expressed frustration with Biden’s support for Israel, noting that the local Muslim and Arab American community feels betrayed. This sentiment could impact Biden’s support in the 2024 election, where these voters previously turned out decisively for him.
