Haley 2015: Don’t Call Them Illegal Immigrants

ALERT: The Biden Administration is working with Big Tech to silence conservatives on social media ahead of the 2024 presidential race. Click here to bypass the censorship by getting Todd’s free newsletter filled with conservative content.

Former Ambassador Nikki Haley claims to be tough on the border today, but back in 2015 she had a very different opinion. She actually told voters to be nice to illegals and to stop calling them criminals. Watch above.

So I think that what we have to remember and what I’ve always believed is that we’re a country of laws. That is what’s made us strong so it’s incredibly frustrating for a lot of people when they see the illegal immigrants being able to come across. It really is astonishing that after all these years, D.C. can’t figure out how to build a wall. It really is, after all of what they spend.

Having said that, we are a country of immigrants. I am the proud daughter of Indian parents who reminded us every day how blessed we are to live in this country. They resent when people come here illegally. But let’s keep in mind, these people who are wanting to come here, they’re wanting to come for a better life too. They have kids too. They have a heart too, so we don’t need to be disrespectful. We don’t need to talk about them as criminals, they’re not. They’re families that want a better life and they’re desperate to get here.

What we need to do is make sure we have a set of laws that we follow and we go through with that. I think that some things have been said that are unfortunate and wrong but I think we also need to remember, especially for all of us … tone and communication matters and people matter. We don’t ever need to talk about this in a cold-hearted way … be kinder than necessary. 


Last month she blasted former President Trump’s tough talk on the illegals and how they were destroying the nation.

“I think we need to secure the border,” she told the Des Moines Register, before referencing the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “I think we need to do whatever it takes to actually stop this inflow of illegal immigrants because America is acting like it’s Sept. 10, and we better remember what Sept. 12 felt like. And I don’t think you have to have that rhetoric to do it. That rhetoric is not helpful.”

Will the real Nikki Haley please stand up?

Do you support Trump or Haley?
