Skip to comments.Days from Primary, Eric Cantor Poses as Anti-Amnesty Warrior
Posted on 05/27/2014 1:49:13 PM PDT by cotton1706
Is it a campaign flier for Majority Eric Leader Eric Cantor, or Rep. Steve King (R-IA)?
Cantor, whose primary race against a political newcomer, Randolph Macon economic professor David Brat, has improbably garnered national attention, has sent thousands of voters a flier claiming he is the chief bulwark against the Obama-Reid plan to give illegal aliens amnesty.
Brat has made immigration a top issue in the campaign, ripping Cantor for his support of a proposal to give amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers if they enlist in the military.
Over his career, Cantor has received high marks from NumbersUSA, an anti-amnesty activist group, for his voting record. He's also repeatedly said he opposes the Senate Gang of Eight bill.
However, since the 2012 elections, Cantor has voiced support for enacting a broad immigration reform bill, and made a GOP version of the DREAM Act, which would grant amnesty to individuals brought to the country illegally as children, a top part of his making life work agenda.
The issue is complicated by the fact that pro-amnesty activists have decided that right now, while Cantor is facing political danger from his right, is the moment to launch a coordinated attack against him for opposing amnesty. The move has drawn suspicion from prominent writers like Mickey Kaus that the whole episode is a clever bit of political theater to give Cantor political cover just as he needs it.
The flyer featured an April 16 headline from liberal publication Talking Points Memo, which stated "Eric Cantor Torches Immigration Reform After Call With Obama."

Once he’s safely reelected, he’ll push through his beloved KIDS Act.
Hey, lying worked for Obama.
So the GOPe is trying it to.
We are soooooooooo.....out of luck.
Barring some miracles.
Typical double talking Gope POS
Cantor is such a fraud. If the GOP ever elects this hack as speaker,
they will be outed as frauds too.
When are the people going to smarten up and pay attention to what eh DOES and ignore what he says?
Damnable liar and fraud. DEFEAT CANTOR !
I'm astounded to hear that.
Everything I've heard the man say over the last 18 months has been thinly camouflaged support for Amnesty.
Rand Paul's immigration speech...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.[Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg]
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reformLatinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...[Posted on 04/21/2013 1:52:42 PM PDT by SoConPubbie]
[but he's not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
I have never trusted the guy. I hope he does not succeed Boehner as Speaker.
That’s another form of election fraud.
Yeah, the Open-Borders cabal is conducting a poorly disguised deception that this weasel is strong on immigration. The Serpent Cantor must be getting really nervous.
eric cantor: professional kabuki vote whore.
Thanks for posting.
That is a devastating archive.
No different than the poser in chief obammy.
