RE ”;A good place to start is with the kids,” Cantor said. “One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents. It is time to provide an opportunity for legal residence and citizenship for those who were brought to this country as children and who know no other home
...also at the link ...at a House hearing:
“But one of the clearest points of contention on immigration reform came between Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the committee, and San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro (D), who testified at the hearing as an expert.
“Are there options that we should consider between the extremes of mass deportation and a pathway to citizenship for those not lawfully present in the United States?” Goodlatte asked Castro.
“Well, let me say this. I do believe that a pathway to citizenship should be the option for Congress,” Castro said. “I don’t see that as an extreme option.”
Castro continued: “I would disagree with the categorization of that as the extreme. The extreme, I would say, just to fill that out, would be open borders.”
Impossible to say if Cantor is really serious about citizenship or if this is just part of the GOPs’ new tone to ‘talk compassionate’ wo changing policies.
Guest worker program???
How about tapping those ~ 900 thousand on SS disability as guest workers instead? A record high are getting those benefits.

(Losing to Dems and Obama is not a principle! Its just losing.)
In one single day (5 Feb 13), Rep Eric Cantor endorsed amnesty for an estimated 1.2 million illegal between the ages of 18-30
Eric have your little pets signed up for selective service yet ???
To put this in context, don’t say “amnesty for illegal aliens”. Instead, say “amnesty for Mexican citizens.”
It is a somewhat different context, but one that might resonate more with the typical American.
This is because the expression “illegal aliens” has become somewhat exhausted as a term because of its frequent use, without any resolution.
But they are Mexicans from Mexico. And so, since the Democrats are trying to get rid of the term “illegal aliens” and replace it with something that sounds more benign, like “undocumented immigrant”, confront them with a replacement that is far *less* sympathetic or benign.
