(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Nikki Haley, former United Nations ambassador during the Trump presidency and Republican 2024 presidential candidate, has announced that she will be making her first trip to the southern border. The information was provided by a spokesman for her campaign to the Daily Caller on Tuesday.
Haley is set to visit the border on April 3rd and will be visiting an area between San Antonio and Eagle Pass, Texas, with Rep. Tony Gonzales.
Ken Farnaso, her spokesman, stated that the crisis in the southern border had entirely been caused by the policies followed by President Biden and that for the past two years, the situation had been ignored. He added that it was time for “leaders (to) show up” which was why Haley would be visiting the border.
Former President Donald Trump and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy are the only other two Republican candidates to have officially announced their presidential campaigns for 2024.
In a Monday town hall forum in Dover, New Hampshire, Haley revealed her plan for dealing with the border crisis and the unprecedented number of illegal immigrants who have entered the country. As part of her plan, she included the hiring of 25,000 additional border agents, the prohibitions of “sanctuary states” and the use of the E-Verify system throughout the nation to verify the citizenship status of each potential worker.
She further claimed in the past that she wanted to have drug cartels operating at the southern border be labeled as “terrorist organizations.”
Former President Trump also visited the border in June 2021 with Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott.
