House Majority Leader Cantor Under Fire From All Sides For His Immigration Stance

The immigration debate was at a fever pitch again Wednesday, with groups from different sides of the issue taking aim at House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Virginia Republican, who sent a flier to voters in recent days boasting of shutting down a plan to “give illegal aliens amnesty.”

The flier, distributed in his district by his re-election campaign, comes as Cantor is under pressure ahead of his June 10 GOP primary — and as the narrow window for action on immigration legislation in the House closes.

At the same, President Obama came under fire for – proponents for more lenient immigration laws say – backpedaling on a vow to review deportation practices and possibly limit them to dangerous criminals.

    I will not vote for any candidate that esposes amnesty in any form I.e. Comprehensive immigration – no work permits – i support DEPORTATION. Our politicians seem to have a very DIFFICULT TIME understanding the word ILLEGAL! NOR will I support any candidate who supports Common Core for our children. i WILL support Tea Party backed candidates as they seem to vet the candidates far better than either party. Remember the Democrats and Republicans failed to vet Obama!!!

    No amnesty, no work permits for illegals. Cantor is flip-flopping but he still wants to give them amnesty. They are trying (with out saying it outright) to allow all the illegal immigrants (11.5M undocumented immigrants) that are here to stay here. Don’t fall for the RINO elite GOP double-talk, replace them with true GOP conservatives that will follow the Constitution.
    E-verify, either they are legal or illegal.
    We don’t need “comprehensive immigration reform.” the law is already clear, no amnesty to illegal immigrants.

    Cantor’s tea party opponent in Virginia’s GOP primary, Dave Brat,
    convened on Wednesday a press conference on the steps of the Virginia
    Capitol to label Cantor a top cheerleader for “amnesty” in the House,
    citing Cantor’s support for action on immigration measures. “Eric Cantor saying he opposes amnesty is like Barack Obama saying he opposes Obamacare,” Brat said.

    Obama is behind all of this double-talk and won’t release the results of a review of the nation’s
    deportation policy until late summer, after the June 10 GOP primary. Obama directed Home Security Johnson not to release the results of the deportation review until that window closes. Two Peas in a pod.
