Immigration Hardliner In Congress Quietly Pulls YouTube Videos

"How do you justify having 15 million people unemployed in this country and having 8 million illegals in this country taking those jobs," Miller says in a deleted video.

Republican Rep. Gary Miller has prominently opposed immigration reform in the past. Miller has also previously advocated sending home any immigrant who is in the United States illegally, "12-20 million people" according to an old version of his campaign website.

But now, Miller might have changed his tune after becoming the representative for the 31st district in California – a district that is half Latino and has 65% of constituents who have pledged support for immigration reform. He has inexplicability pulled videos from his official YouTube page advocating a hardline stance on immigration.

The videos "Rep. Gary Miller Discusses Arizona on Fox & Friends," "Rep. Gary Miller's Conversation with Rep. Sue Myrick", "Rep. Gary Miller Discusses Amnesty Legislation on Fox, and "Rep. Miller Discusses Birthright Citizenship on Fox News" can be seen on Miller's website through the web archive in the hyperlinks above, but are no longer found on his website.

"How do you justify having 15 million people unemployed in this country and having 8 million illegals in this country taking those jobs," Miller says in one video.

"It's just wrong," Miller said in another video discussing birthright citizenship and his bill which aimed to revoke birthright citizenship to children born in the United States to illegal immigrants.

Miller's office told BuzzFeed in a statement:

"Congressman Miller agrees that our immigration system is badly broken and needs to be fixed. He believes in an immigration policy that promotes economic growth, strengthens public safety, and establishes a strong mandatory employment verification system to protect American jobs for American workers and eliminates the exploitation of unauthorized workers. Since January, over 30 groups and hundreds of individuals have visited our offices to discuss this complex and critical issue. Congressman Miller's position will continue to evolve as we continue to listen and gather input from residents, business leaders, and law enforcement officials to ensure that the needs of the Inland Empire are met."

According to Univision, Miller said earlier this year he didn't believe it was possible to deport everyone here illegally.
