Haley Campaign Press Release - VIDEO: Haley Hits Trump and Biden for Border Crisis

February 29, 2024

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Nikki Haley for President campaign released a new video highlighting Haley's plan to fix the crisis at the southern border and the role both Joe Biden and Donald Trump have played in creating and worsening the border crisis.

Under Joe Biden's watch, we had 7.2 million border encounters. Another 1.8 million illegal immigrants have gotten away, bringing the total to 9 million. In 2023, Border Patrol apprehended 169 people on the terror watch list—and those are just the ones we caught.

What about Donald Trump? With the border crisis reaching DEFCON 1, some Republicans wanted to take action. While Haley called on Congress to reinstate Remain in Mexico and fix our broken asylum laws, Trump ordered congressional Republicans to do absolutely nothing so he can use the crisis as a political talking point against Biden.

In contrast, Nikki Haley called for Congress to get in a room and figure out a solution. In 2011, she passed one of the toughest illegal immigration laws in the country, and has a track record of doing—not talking. Haley visited the southern border in April 2023 and rolled out her plan to fix our immigration crisis:

  1. Require businesses to use E-Verify—just like she did as governor.

  2. Fire Biden's new IRS agents and hire 25,000 new Border Patrol and ICE agents.

  3. No handouts to illegal immigrants, including defunding sanctuary cities.

  4. Stop catch-and-release, start catch-and-deport.

  5. Reinstate Remain in Mexico and Title 42.
