There is no more an enthusiastic advocate of legal immigration in the U.S. Senate than I am, and that is a message that resonates powerfully in the Hispanic community.
The Obama administration came into Utah and said, 'We're not going to listen to what the U.S. Supreme Court said. 'We, the federal government, are going to recognize marriages in the state of Utah and Utah state law explicitly does not recognize as marriage,' and that was really, in my view, an abuse of power.
I'm not serving in office because I desperately needed 99 new friends in the U.S. Senate.
I am not content to entrust our free-speech rights to the good graces and whims of Congress and hope that politicians don't abuse their power.
