U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says decisions about immigration ‘must always be made by Americans and Americans alone’
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Saturday that President Donald Trump made the decision to withdraw the U.S. from negotiations on an immigration pact because it was “not compatible with U.S. sovereignty.”
All throughout his presidential campaign, Trump pledged to secure the border, enforce immigration laws and prioritize U.S. citizens’ safety and interests above all other concerns. And part of this agenda, Haley told the U.N., involves ensuring that the U.S. maintains its national sovereignty when entering into agreements with other countries.
“No country has done more than the United States, and our generosity will continue,” Haley said. “But our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.”
“We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country,” she added.
