That isn't the full quote, or at least not the full sentence, and the rest
of it puts it in context. I think it is careless to attribute it to her
without the context.

Though even with the full quote, Haley seems to have missed the (few?) times 
when the USA did restrict immigration based on on ethnicity.

But I'd agree with Dan that the selective dumping on what Haley said is 
somewhat unfair-- she's nowhere near Trump's league.

I'm tempted to say, the difference between disingenuousness and outright 
lying.

But hey, isn't that what politicians are for?
