Congresswoman-Elect Mia Love Weighs In on Sheila Jackson-Lee calling Americans Selfish on Amnesty

And she responded to new comments from Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), who said it would be “selfish” not to grant the temporary work permits and amnesty.

“This is not amnesty. This is prioritization. This is saving money. This is keeping families together. This is allowing children to not come home to places where their parents have been thrown from their places of work and taken away from them. I am excited about the courage of this president. I look forward to America finally understanding the gifts you that you are given. Let us not be a selfish nation. Let us be a generous nation,” she said on the House floor.

Love noted that 74 percent of voters responded in Election Day polls by saying the president should work with Congress on immigration reform.

“This is about the American people. He needs to remember who he works for,” said Love, adding that she believes lawmakers and the president can come up with a “compassionate” solution.
