Law and Crime: Stephen Miller’s Legal Group Wins Injunction to Halt Race and Sex-Based Discrimination in Distribution of COVID Relief Funds

Since leaving the White House, Stephen Miller has been going around suing the Biden administration in federal court over anti-White discrimination to block its “equity” agenda. Apparently, Miller is still sore about all the lawsuits which filed to block the Trump administration’s immigration agenda and has learned something from that experience and has embarked on a campaign of revenge.

Jurist.org:

“A US federal judge issued a preliminary ruling Tuesday in favor of a white male restaurateur who claimed he had been discriminated against in connection to his application for some of the nearly $29 billion in relief offered by the Biden administration.

Philip Greer, the owner of a cafe in Texas, wanted to apply to the Small Business Administration’s Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) for help after his cafe lost $100,000 in revenue because of the pandemic. However, the SBA has a mandate to prioritize applications from women, veterans and persons from socially and economically disadvantaged groups for the first 21 days of the program. Based on the number of applications from the priority groups, Greer feared that the fund would run out of money before the SBA could get around to considering his application. …

Greer’s lawsuit was backed by the America First Legal Foundation, whose president is former Trump Administration senior adviser Stephen Miller, architect of that administration’s infamous Muslim travel ban. Miller called the ruling, “the first, but crucial, step towards ending government-sponsored racial discrimination,” and railed against Critical Race Theory, which he characterized as a “new wave of government discrimination.” …”

Law and Crime:

“A conservative legal group founded by former Trump administration officials Stephen Miller and Mark Meadows secured an injunction which prevents the Biden administration from discriminating based on race and sex in the distribution of COVID-19 aid for restauranteurs.

The lawsuit, filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas by America First Legal, stems from debt relief afforded to “socially disadvantaged” farmers and ranchers as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) that Congress passed last month. A provision of the ARPA requires the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to “prioritize awarding grants” to eligible restaurants “owned and controlled” by women, veterans, and “socially disadvantaged individuals.” The SBA defines the latter group as “those who have been subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias within American society because of their identities as members of groups and without regard to their individual qualities” which stem from “circumstances beyond their control.” …

Jason and Janice Smith, who own and operate a restaurant named Blessed Cajuns, sued on the theory that prioritizing aid applicants based on race and gender attributes amounts to unconstitutional discrimination.

In a 12-page order issued Friday, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Conner, an appointee of George W. Bush, agreed. The judge ordered the SBA to cease prioritizing socially disadvantaged applicants ahead of the Smiths until their application is “processed and considered in accordance with a race-neutral, sex-neutral ‘first come, first served’ policy.” …”
