Nikki Haley on Homeland Security
Persecuted immigrants are welcome--but not Syrian refugees
Gov. Nikki Haley says she supports allowing persecuted immigrants to come to South Carolina--as long as they're not from Syria. Republicans in the state Legislature called on Haley to oppose all international refugees.
But the Republican governor said as long as nothing changes in who is being resettled in the state, neither will her stance.

We are a patriotic people; we love those in uniform
The hardest part of my job is the calls I make to the families of our fallen heroes, but each time I put down the phone, I am touched and amazed by the strength, the grace, and the pride with which these brave survivors handle the tremendous sacrifice
of their loved one.
We are a patriotic people, South Carolinians. We love our state, we love our country, and we love our men and women who put on the uniform, who keep us safe. They are our parents and our children, our husbands and our
wives, our mothers, our fathers, our siblings, our friends.
Tonight, there are 766 families across the state with loved ones in the South Carolina Army National Guard who are deployed and serving overseas, far from their homes.
Our family shares a special bond with the military families of South Carolina. Like them, we know the pride of watching our loved one wear the uniform of the strongest, proudest nation in the history of the world--loving his job.
