Skip to comments.Cantor to Push for Immigration Reform at African Burial Ground National Monument (Good Lord!)
Posted on 07/19/2013 5:17:15 AM PDT by cotton1706
Later this month, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is slated to visit New York to stump for an immigration bill as part of the bipartisan Becoming America tour. Among Cantors stops: Ellis Island, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and the African Burial Ground National Monument. Canter, among other Congressmen, is scheduled to speak at a naturalization and dine with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The African Burial Ground National Monument was discovered in 1991 while building a federal office building; as the website describes it, From about the 1690s until 1794, both free and enslaved Africans were buried in a 6.6-acre burial ground in Lower Manhattan, outside the boundaries of the settlement of New Amsterdam, later known as New York. The grounds were originally buried under a landfill. Cantor will be traveling with Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), former Bush commerce secretary Carlos Gutierrez, Reps. Fred Upton (R-MI), Michael Grimm (R-NY), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Lois Capps (D-CA), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Jim McGovern (D-MA), Susan Davis (D-CA), Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY).
Cantor will speak at an event in Jackson Heights, Queens, Crowleys district.

I’ll make a wager that Cantor is not only working for amnesty but gun control too.
The man is a “Dandy”. I’m so sick of these RINO’s.
I have been writing and calling my Congresscritters. Enforce the law..build the fence..expedite the process and fix INS for those applying for citizenship LEGALLY!
Someone needs to tell Eric that the Africans who came here weren’t exactly “immigrants.”
Sometimes it might be too easy to read one’s person through their looks. Cantor always looks like a weasel to me.
Turning out more and more he proves my assumption correct.
Oh, Cantor’s got the perfect suit and the perfect tie, and the hair and the glasses. How he became the majority leader is beyond me.
Boner’s goat pictures wouldn’t work, he has no shame.
Could be a perfect vacuum attached to the droopy-faced crybaby pickeled “Speaker” .
"Oh no he di'n't!"
A far more appropriate location for such a speech (n.b., I disagree with him and the rest of the GOPe on immigration) would've been the Irish Famine Memorial in Battery Park City.
A deserted village transported from the west of Ireland to lower Manhattan.
Cantor is brain dead. That has to be one of the most inappropriate places for an immigration speech imaginable. I guess he’s forgotten that blacks don’t celebrate Ellis Island. And the GOP-e wonder why they can’t get the black or hispanic vote — inappropriate speeches in inappropriate places certainly don’t help. High ranking official of the ‘Stupid Party’ strikes again.
