Longtime Trump adviser Stephen Miller’s legal group saw a major jump in revenue last year, raising $44 million, significantly more than the $6 million garnered during 2021.
Miller’s national non-profit, America First Legal, registered as a 501c(3), saw a near 600 percent revenue jump, according to a Bloomberg New analysis of tax fillings provided by Accountable.US, a progressive watchdog group.
The revenue increase comes after the group started filing more lawsuits, focused on challenging major law firms, school districts and corporations that it describes as “radical” and “woke.”
Miller’s group tackles controversial culture war issues, particularly when it comes to transgender rights, diversity in hiring programs, immigration and even aiding Trump in his mounting legal battles. America First Legal opposes “the radical left’s anti-jobs, anti-freedom, anti-faith, anti-borders, anti-police, and anti-American crusade,” according to its website.
As a registered 501c(3), the group does not have to disclose its donors, which is significant considering the majority of its revenue, $27 million, came from one single donor.
Miller himself saw his paycheck grow from nearly $77,000 to $186,818 last year, according to the filing. During Trump’s tenure in the White House, Miller was the top advisor who made headlines with his hard-line approach to immigration. He now serves as America First’s president and executive director.
Blake Masters, a current candidate for Arizona’s 8th Congressional District, is also on the group’s board. Masters previously lost in the 2022 Arizona Senate race to Mark Kelly.
America First Legal is part of a network of groups run by former Trump advisers. Judging by numbers in the tax filings, the group has been significantly expanding its influence in the lead-up to the 2024 presidential election.
