Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock should be deported, claiming legal immigrants are more patriotic than the U.S. Senator.

At a Sunday campaign rally in Hiram, Georgia, for Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker, Haley slammed President Joe Biden’s administration over the border crisis, saying Biden and Warnock are partially responsible for the mass influx of migrants and drugs that have crossed the border while in office.

“Look at the border. Do you know we’ve had 3.8 million illegal immigrants cross that border, 800,000 more got-aways, 4.5 million people broke the law and came here illegally? And Biden and Warnock helped them do it. Now, I am the daughter of Indian immigrants,” Haley said at the rally. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Nikki Haley Becomes Latest Republican To Endorse Dr. Oz)

“They came here legally, they put in the time, they put in the price, they are offended by what’s happening on that border. Legal immigrants are more patriotic than the leftists these days. They knew they worked to come into America, and they love America. They want the laws followed in America, so the only person we need to make sure we deport is Warnock,” she added.

Border agents encountered a record two million migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in 2021. In fiscal year 2021, they seized $3.31 billion in counterfeit goods, over 319,000 pounds of marijuana, over 190,000 pounds of methamphetamine and over 97,000 pounds of cocaine.

The rally was part of Walker’s bus tour through the state. With just one day until the election polls are showing the race as a toss-up, with Walker and Warnock tied. (RELATED: ‘Serious Problem’: Nikki Haley Calls Out Biden’s Failure To Halt OPEC Production Cut)
