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.’”

In September 2022, Haley said that “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.”

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 on Monday 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.’”

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.’”

“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.”
