Mia Love is the daughter of immigrants from Haiti. She has worked her way up to become a mayor and is now heading to Congress as the first black Republican woman ever elected to the House, where she will represent Utah’s 4th district.
Love appeared on Fox this morning, and blasted President Obama’s decision to unilaterally grant amnesty to as many as 5,000,000 illegal aliens currently living in the United States.
Love noted that 74% of the voters say they want the president to work with Congress, not go unilateral. “He can’t make unilateral decisions,” Love said.
Asked to respond to Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s support of Obama’s unilateralism, Love pulled no punches.
“This is not about her. This is not about the president,” Love said. “It’s about the American people and what the American people want the president to do. The American people want Congress to work with the president, want the president to work with Congress so that we can be compassionate, so that we can create a uniform rule of naturalization. It is Congress’ job under Article 1, Section 8, to create a uniform rule of naturalization, a way in. It should be done line by line, section by section with the input of the public instead of being done by one person.
“It looks more like a dictatorship when a president is unilaterally making decisions for the American people,” Rep.-elect Love concluded.
