Skip to comments.Cantor: Amnesty For DREAMers Is 'Biblical'
Posted on 06/04/2014 7:41:53 PM PDT by cotton1706
Majority Leader Eric Cantor offered a new explanation for why he supports granting amnesty to individuals brought into the country illegally as minors, often called DREAMers in reference to the DREAM Act.
It's Biblical, he said in a local radio interview.
Ive always said that theres a Biblical root and a tradition in this country that says we dont hold children liable for their parents acts and when you have kids who may have been brought here lets say at 2 months old unbeknownst to them and theyve been here all their lives and they want to serve in our military, my position has been I agree with that principle, he said. They should be allowed to serve in our military and be allowed to become part of this country as a citizen, but not their parents. Not the ones who committed the illegal act. So this is the difficulty, Cantor said this week on The John Fredericks Show.
Cantor went on say that Obamas intransigence is the reason there has not yet been immigration reform.
The president has said he doesnt want to pursue this type of a first step approach he doesn't want to pursue a path that would say lets do the things we can agree on and insist instead on a blanket amnesty bill, the Virginia Republican said. And Im opposed to that and as long as the president says my way or the highway all or nothing, we cant get anything done.
Cantor also spoke about his opposition to the Senate Gang of Eight bill.
Ive always opposed Harry Reid and Barack Obamas amnesty bill coming out of the Senate, he said.

This guy is starting to really irritate me.
prototype tactic of the left
Come on! Let’s send Dave Brat to Mordor on the Potomac. He is Aragorn, Cantor is Golem!
Cantor is crazy. Illegal aliens are a danger to us.
Any excuse to please the leftist churches, the big donors, and the Chamber of Commerce.
Making life work: Remarks by Majority Leader Eric Cantor
Eric Cantor, your biblical knowledge is laughable.
Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.
For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;
for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.
Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience sake.
For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.
Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.
Interviewer failed to ask Cantor how he planned on punishing the father for the sins of the father.
“Render unto Caesar” says to me that Christ recognized the legitimacy of worldly government.IOW...get bleeped,Mr Cantor! No sale!!!
No! It’s Cesar’s law - you render unto Cesar. Caesar’s law states you can’t be in the USA without permission. Period!
LEGAL Immigrants ARE receiving our compassion and charity and opportunity.
We simply insist that immigrants DO SO LEGALLY!!!
Its RACIST to impose SLAVE wages on LEGAL immigrants and other minorities, by flooding the market with cheap labor.
PS - it’s all about pandering to the Mexican illegals.
This is a very powerful political argument that I bet that if it was phrased that way in polls: 90% agree /10% disagree.
Issues like this will have little effect on this years election but when the next GOP candidate goes up against Hillary (or whoever) in 2016 and she calls for amnesty, its going to get real ugly.
He Eric stoning sodomites is also Biblical. Let us know when you get that taken care of.
Anchor babies are not biblical, they are an epidemic.
In LA they are remodeling hotels to cater to Chinese girls 8 months pregnant who drop thousands of “citizens” a year.
Canter is part of the problem, not the solution.
Numbers 14:18 The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’
I don’t think this guy reads all of his Bible!
Run them out of the country at the barrel of a gun.
