American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement on South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s extreme record on immigration, which includes her signing anti-immigrant bill SB 20 requiring “police officers to check the immigration status of people they stop.”
“Governor Nikki Haley’s extreme record on immigration would make Donald Trump smile. While you won’t hear it in her State of the Union response, it’s impossible for Gov. Haley to whitewash her far-right record when the truth is she signed a bill inspired by Arizona’s offensive “Papers Please” Law that encouraged racial profiling.
“Gov. Haley’s Tea Party credentials have never been in doubt. Her immigration policies are squarely in sync with Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Donald Trump, who spend every day on the campaign trail courting xenophobic right wing conservatives.”
