A Vote for Nikki Haley is a Vote for Weakness

The South Carolina Republican Primary Election is tomorrow - Saturday, February 24, 2024 – and Republicans really only have one choice: Former President Donald Trump.

That’s not to say there won’t be some other names on the ballot, but they are so obscure as to not be credible, have dropped out or in the case of former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, are simply running spoiler campaigns calculated to hurt President Trump, the now-inevitable nominee.

We are all for spirited primaries where candidates compete in the marketplace of ideas for the votes of registered Republicans, but former Governor Haley’s campaign is largely bereft of conservative ideas that might qualify as legitimate alternatives to Mr. Trump’s MAGA agenda.


And where they do differ, Haley’s record and position are wildly at variance with conservative opinion.


Perhaps most notable among those positions is her record on illegal border crossing and the admission of illegal aliens and potential terrorists into the United States.


Nikki Haley opposed President Trump’s travel ban on immigrants coming into America from terrorist countries.

In March 2017, Haley rejected banning immigrants flooding America from countries like Iran, Syria, and North Korea. She said that a ban is “un-American.”

In 2015, Haley denounced President Trump’s travel ban, calling it “absolutely un-American” and “unconstitutional.” She also said it “defies everything that this country was based on and it’s just wrong.”

Haley added that the travel ban policy was “an embarrassment” to her party. 


Haley has spoken out against a border wall and has been critical of ending automatic birthright citizenship. She also opposed President Trump’s plan to use drones and planes to secure the southern border.

Nikki Haley: “Republicans need to remember that the fabric of America came from these legal immigrants,’ she said. ‘If you want to talk about tackling illegal immigration, then let’s talk about it, but we don’t need to attack so many millions of people who came here … and did it the right way, like my parents.’ Haley wasn’t finished. ‘Why are you going all the way to this side and talking about birthright citizenship when you haven’t even talked about illegal immigration itself?’ she asked. ‘Are you as a candidate going to commit to putting troops along the border?’ She also cited the high cost of drones, planes, and detention and deportation capabilities, which would be needed. Concluded the governor: ‘Don’t say you’re just going to build a wall, because a wall’s not going to do it.’”

Nikki Haley wants unlimited immigration and claims “legal immigrants are more patriotic than most Americans these days.” During a podcast interview with Ben Shapiro, Haley said that “Immigrants are the fabric of America.”

She added: “It’s what makes us great. We need as many immigrants as we can. We need the skills, we need the talent, we need the culture. We need all of that.”

In 2018, Haley claimed, “The one thing about America and what I have always loved is America is a country of immigrants. It’s the fabric of America to have multiple cultures. Multiple populations. Multiple heritages that do come into America that make it what it is.”

As governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley supported a government-funded refugee resettlement program. State Sen. Harvey Peeler sent a letter to the governor's office asking the Haley Administration to stop their ‘willingness to accept international refugees’ because of fears in the Upstate that some of these refugees could be coming from war-torn Middle Eastern countries.

In 2016, Haley defended Barack Obama when President Trump criticized the former president on weak immigration policies that put Americans at risk. “‘During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices,’ Haley said from the governor’s residence in Columbia. ‘We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.’”

It is also worth noting that Haley’s deputy at the United Nations was a #NeverTrumper and helped Mark Zuckerberg create his open borders lobbying group. The group “serves as an open borders lobbying group for Silicon Valley’s tech conglomerates. is a pro-amnesty, pro-foreign labor organization funded by the elites of Silicon Valley – including Zuckerberg, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.” 


In July 2015, Haley said that Americans should not describe illegal immigrants “as criminals,” suggesting that doing so is “disrespectful.” Her comments were made during a panel with the Aspen Institute, moderated by then-CEO Walter Isaacson.

“Haley, in response, said that while Americans are rightfully frustrated with illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border, she urged the audience not to use language like “criminals” to describe illegal aliens because “they’re not.’” 

 As governor of South Carolina, Haley was sued by a resident of her state for backing former President Obama’s refugee resettlement program. Haley was one of nine Republican governors who continued supporting President Obama’s plan to resettle Syrian refugees across the U.S, even after terrorist attacks occurred in Europe.

“For example, three days after the November 13, 2015, terrorist attacks in Paris, France, — when seven Islamic terrorists killed 130 people, including one terrorist who reportedly posed as a Syrian refugee to get into the country — Haley was one of only nine Republican governors who continued supporting then-President Obama’s plan to resettle Syrian refugees across the U.S.”

Weakness, ambiguity, and vacillation on taking the necessary measures to protect the sovereignty of the United States and stop illegal alien invasion, particularly at our southern border, should find no home in the Republican Party or conservative politics. Whatever Nikki Haley’s candidacy is about, it is most certainly not about governing America according to conservative principles and we urge our friends in South Carolina to firmly reject it by voting for Donald Trump in tomorrow’s South Carolina Republican Primary Election.
