Utahs Mia Love, the only Haitian-American in Congress, says Trump should apologize

Utah’s Mia Love, the only Haitian-American in Congress, says Trump should apologize for his ‘s---hole’ comment

Washington • Rep. Mia Love, a Utah Republican and the only Haitian-American in Congress, called on President Donald Trump to apologize Thursday after reports said he questioned why the United States was allowing immigrants from “s---hole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

“The president’[s] comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values,” Love said in a statement, noting that her parents, Mary and Jean Maxime Bourdeau, emigrated from Haiti and made their home in America. “This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation.”

Her parents, she said, took an oath to their adopted country and “took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with.”

“They never took a thing from our federal government,” she added. “They worked hard, paid taxes, and rose from nothing to take care of and provide opportunities for their children. They taught their children to do the same. That’s the American Dream. The president must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned.”

1. Of course she only speaks now because it affects her own heritage.

And yet she doesn't give a crap when he attacks someone else.
