Episode 14: Mia Love on Immigration and the Border Crisis
Updated: 3 days ago
Former Congresswoman Mia Love joins Sam Stone and Chuck Warren on this weeks episode of Breaking Battlegrounds.
Love was the first African-American Republican woman in Congress. She brought a unique personal history and diverse résumé to the House. Love, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, was born in New York, studied theater in Connecticut, converted to the Church of Latter-day Saints, moved to Utah, and was a staunch proponent of small government. But Love’s career in politics, long before she served in the House, revolved around policy more than her individual story. “I wasn’t elected in Saratoga Springs because of my race or my gender or my heels,” she said in 2013 about her time as mayor. “I was elected by the people there because I had a plan and a vision to get us financially stable.”
EyeCare4Kids™ provides professional eye care to low-income, visually-impaired children and underserved families. The organization has helped more than 300,000 children receive professional eye exams, vision screenings and glasses, when needed. The goal is to have a vision clinic in every major city across the United States and a mobile clinic in each state to aid the EyeCare4Kids™ Rural Outreach Program. With the help of donors and volunteers, there is no reason a child needs to go years without professional eye care or a pair of glasses. A donation of $100 provides exams and eyeglasses for 3 children.
