Nikki Haley at the Republican National Convention gave a speech attacking Hispanics: "South Carolina recently passed one of the most innovative illegal immigration laws in the country to secure our borders and address this issue in any meaningful way.
If this President refuses to secure our borders, refuses to protect our citizens from the dangers of illegal immigration, then states have an obligation to take it on ourselves.
We said in South Carolina if you have to show a picture ID to buy Sudafed and you have to show a picture ID to set foot on an airplane, then you should have to show a picture ID to protect one of the most valuable, most central, most sacred rights we are blessed with in America - the right to vote."
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley of Muslim roots is ignorant of the US Constitution and laws of the the United States. A poll tax was used as a de facto or implicit pre-condition of the exercise of the ability to vote. This tax emerged in some states of the United States in the late 19th century as part of the Jim Crow laws that block blacks from voting. After the ability to vote was extended to all races by the enactment of the Fifteenth Amendment, many Southern states enacted poll tax laws as a means of restricting eligible voters; such laws often included a grandfather clause, which allowed any adult male whose father or grandfather had voted in a specific year prior to the abolition of slavery to vote without paying the tax. These laws, along with unfairly implemented literacy tests and extra-legal intimidation, achieved the desired effect of disfranchising African-American and Native American voters, as well as poor whites. The 24th Amendment to the US Constitution, ratified in 1964, reflecting a political compromise, abolished the use of the poll tax or any other tax as a pre-condition for voting in Federal elections.
In the 1966 case of Harper v. Virginia Board of Elections, the Supreme Court overruled its decision in Breedlove v. Suttles, and extended the prohibition of poll taxes to state elections. It declared the imposition of a poll tax in state elections violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
It appears Muslim South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has never read the US Constitution or United States Supreme Court case law.
If Muslims in America are not going to adhere to the laws of the United States, they should go back to wherever they came from.

11 years after 9/11, the Muslim holy war against America continues
NEW YORK CITY & SANTA FE, NM (By Bobby Ghosh, Time) September 11, 2012) — The Muslim group al-Qaeda is in retreat and Osama bin Laden's dream lies in ruins. So what is next for America and its struggle against Muslims?
The silent invasion of Muslims done under the cover of education and false belief in the US Constitution is used as a cover for the acceptance of Muslims in America.
On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, it is some consolation the man most responsible for that terrible morning will not be smiling smugly to himself as satellite TV brings to the leafy boulevards of Abbottabad the somber images of New Yorkers commemorating those who perished in the Twin Towers. It provides some psychic satisfaction to all those traumatized by that ghastly day, and the wars it wrought, that our collective remembrance will not be embittered by the nagging question, “And why is Osama bin Laden still alive and free today?”
But perhaps more important bin Laden’s own demise is the death of his vision of a ‘global Muslim jihad,’ a holy world war pitting Muslims everywhere against infidels everywhere, especially in the West. His fervid dreams of a conflict with the U.S., the “far enemy,” were dashed long before SEAL Team Six burst into his Pakistani hideout. Psychotic mass-murderers tend not to be introspective, but it can’t have escaped bin Laden’s attention as he stared at his TV screen angry young Muslims were not lining up to kill Americans, wealthy patrons were not pumping billions into the cause, and Westerners were not cowering in their cellars.
There’s still a holy war abroad and a silent war in America. From Mali and the Maghreb through Iraq and Syria to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Muslim groups are at large and enjoying various degrees of success. Many of these groups claim affiliation to the Muslim group al-Qaeda, chant bin Laden’s name and parrot some of his anti-West rhetoric.
The most significant group is the Muslim group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, which is based in Yemen. Alone among the the Muslim group al-Qaeda franchises, AQAP clings to bin Laden’s original ideas for a holy world war. AQAP has tried repeatedly to strike at the West: it has tried to send suicide bombers wearing explosive underwear to the U.S. and sought to send explosives to the West through courier services like DHL.
It has reached out to discontented Muslims living in the West and encourages them to mount terror attacks.
But even AQAP has recently got bogged down in domestic issues. Last year, taking advantage of the chaos of the Arab Spring revolt in Sana’a, the group took over a swath of territory in southern Yemen and ran it for over a year, pretty much along the lines of the Muslim Taliban in pre-9/11 Afghanistan. This was a huge tactical blunder. For one thing, it made enemies out of many ordinary Yemenis who had previously been agnostic about AQAP’s anti-Western activities. It’s one thing to use Yemen as a safehouse, but when you try to take over the house, its residents tend to get very prickly. And sure enough, there was a backlash against AQAP, which culminated with a military offensive this summer that brought the territory back under government control.
To paraphrase an old political axiom, all Muslim jihad is local. But that doesn’t mean America can rest easy. There can be no return to the 1990s, when the world ignored Afghanistan’s civil as a local matter, allowing the Muslim Taliban to take over and turn that country into a springboard for bin Laden. That could happen to Mali, or to Somalia, or once again to Afghanistan.
But dealing with local Muslim jihad requires a very different set of strategies, political and military, than the “global war on terror” conceived by the Bush administration and refined by the Obama White House. The good news is small holy wars require much less blood and treasure. The bad news is they call for skills the U.S. is often found lacking: the art of making political consensus in Washington as well as in the countries where the Muslim jihad is being fought, the ability to work with Muslim populations rather than their tyrannical rulers, and superb intelligence work.
Just as bin Laden’s body was buried at sea, it’s time for the U.S. to cast off its old strategies and find new ways to fight a global war on local terror especially in America.
