‘Shameful’: Nikki Haley Torches Rashida Tlaib for Voting Against Border Aid Bill and Complaining About Crisis

Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted freshman firebrand Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) as “shameful” for complaining about the ongoing border crisis after voting against an emergency aid bill.

In a tweet published Sunday, Haley — who also served as the governor of South Carolina from 2011 to 2017 — went after Tlaib after she defended voting against a $4.6 billion emergency funding bill for the border, calling out the Michigan Democrat for complaining “every chance she gets” about the crisis at the southern border and claiming that she does not “really want a solution.”

“Unreal that Rep. Tlaib complains every chance she gets about the situation on the border yet when given the opportunity to add $4.6 Billion in aid you vote against it?? Shameful,” wrote Haley, adding “#YouDon’tReallyWantASolution.”

The former U.N. ambassador’s tweet also included a video from the Michigan congresswoman’s appearance on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday where she claimed that three Customs and Border Patrol agents pulled her aside and said that the U.S. immigration system was “broken” and “inhumane.”

“Three agents took me aside, away from my colleagues, and said, ‘More money is not going to fix this,'” claimed Tlaib. “[…] They all said, ‘This is a broken system. This is inhumane.'”

Haley’s tweet comes as more Democratic lawmakers look at the conditions of the facilities holding migrants attempting to cross into the U.S. with renewed scrutiny after sleeping on the border crisis for months.

As IJR Red previously reported, in a piece penned on Sunday, the House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) claimed that the conditions of the facilities should “shock the conscience” of Americans and promised to investigate them.

However, Thompson had previously claimed in a January press release that President Donald Trump tries to “blame everyone” for the crisis at the border and that there was “no security crisis at the border.”

Tlaib doesn’t want anything resolved and she’s not alone. The Democrats have chosen to keep a negative narrative going over everything and anything as long as they can cast Trump as the bad guy. It’s a farce and it’s weak and it shows they have no regard for the people they serve. It’s disgusting and shameful.


Nikki, we need you in a national position again!


Go get ‘em Nikki!


Nikki would make a righteous President.


I agree with Nikki Haley. I don’t think Tlaib really wants a solution. If a solution is passed they have nothing to complain about.

Tlaib belongs in Syria


I’ve said it before, Democrats thrive on chaos. They want everything to be bad so they can blame Republicans and make insane promises. When all is well, they can’t get elected. This is how they’ve operated since their beginning. Their voting against aid proves this. They complain about the border crisis, then vote against correcting it.


What really hits me is how we’ve had the first black President and now the first two Muslim women in Congress and they all are America Hating, treasonous, seditious, lying fools who degrade their religions, race, constituents and all America.
