Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley distanced herself from former President Donald Trump's policy of separating immigrant children from their parents, But he said this happened because lawmakers have long been stuck on immigration reform.

In an interview for CBS News, the former Trump ambassador to the UN insisted, “It should never have gotten to that point…we shouldn't be separating families.”

The former South Carolina governor and daughter of immigrant parents responded this way when asked if she would revive the controversial Trump administration policy as a deterrent to illegal border crossings.

The above in the context of the recent expiration of Title 42 that affects the border crossing with Mexico.

According to CBS, Haley blamed both Republicans and Democrats for the border crisis. and said it "should have been fixed a long time ago."

He also indicated that he would stop allowing immigrants to enter the country until an immigration reform is approved and that the two parties should sit down at the table to achieve it.

I think we need to stop the border bleeding and do comprehensive immigration reform before we can even think about bringing anyone else into this country.", said.

He said that legal immigration should depend on factors such as merit, talent and business needs.

“Let's not do it just because people cross the fence and run away… Let's not do it because we have overcrowded facilities and we can't take it anymore. That is the wrong way to do it. We have to make sure that this is a national security issue,” he insisted.

In June 2021, the current Administration of Democrat Joe Biden stressed that it had a long task ahead of it, since its The government had identified 3,913 children who were separated from their parents at the border with Mexico as a result of Trump's "zero tolerance" policy.

Between 2017 and 2018, according to official figures, the Department of Homeland Security separated more than 5,500 migrant children from their families at the southern border of the United States.

So far, Trump, Haley, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and conservative radio host Larry Elder are the contenders for the Republican nomination.
