Skip to comments.Dave Brat: Illegal Immigrants Pouring into USA After Cantor Announced 'Kids Are Welcome'
Posted on 06/09/2014 6:03:35 AM PDT by cotton1706
Dave Brat, who is challenging House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Tuesday's primary, believes Cantor betrayed his district on amnesty and shares the blame for surge in illegal immigrant children flooding into the country.
"One you announced that kids are welcome, they're going to head in," Brat said on Breitbart News Sunday of Cantor's support for giving the children of illegal immigrants amnesty and citizenship because he believes it is one of the "founding principles" of the country.
Brat, who has been surging in the polls, said Cantor has taken "zero responsibility" on the issue and blasted him for falsely claiming that he was "unwavering on immigration" when Cantor has really been "bobbing and weaving" on the issue. Brat noted that Cantor was "100% all-in" on amnesty and support for the Kids Act, the Enlist Act, and the Dream Act before one of Cantor's top allies was ousted from a GOP Chairmanship in his district. Brat said amnesty legislation will be "right back on track after the primary is over" if Cantor prevails.
"This is the last chance [to stop amnesty]," he told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon.
Cantor indicated he continues to support amnesty for illegal immigrant children in a Friday interview with a local television when he was asked about the surge of illegal immigrant children entering the United States, which Breitbart Texas has been extensively documenting.
"But I have told the President there are some things that we can work on together," Cantor said. "We can work on the border security bill together. We can work on things like the Kids."

what sort of depraved “parent” would use their kids in this way
The invasion continues, with the knowing cooperation of our traitorous political class.

Also, press your Representative to NOT support Cantor for Speaker.
At least some of these teenagers must have parents, communities and religious connections in their homelands. Obama is using them as a Children's Crusade to complete the invasion of the US. That's sick. Our humanitarian effort should be to get them back to their families and communities.
Why aren't the 'pubs taking that approach? What are they going to do....set up a committee, have hearings for sound bites, and use it as a campaign issue?
Maybe they should all stay at Cantor’s house.
Cantor should be aggressively asked, if you want to give amnesty to the kids, what happens to the rest of the family?
>> what sort of depraved parent would use their kids in this way
The kind that Jeb Bush says have better family values than Americans.
Care to make a bet?
I bet you this is Obama’s “rent a mob” that will be marching, protesting, and rioting in the streets.
President Obamas backdoor amnesty that was implemented by a June 15, 2012, HHS memorandum signed by Secretary Napolitano who used prosecutorial discretion for an entire class of illegal aliens, namely children brought to this country under the age of 16. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program gives amnesty by executive fiat and work authorizations to illegal aliens not above the age of 30 who claim they arrived in the country before the age of 16. An estimated 1.8 million are eligible for the program and approximately 500,000 have applied and been approved. The approval rate is an astonishing 99.5 percent.
Secretary Napolitano admitted that DHS internally set it up so that the parents are not referred for immigration enforcement if the young person comes in for deferred action, thereby further expanding the scope of the non-enforcement directive. The DACA program has also sparked movements throughout the country to provide DACA legalized aliens with in-state tuition and drivers licenses in addition to other benefits accorded U.S. citizens and green card holders.
In a related piece of legislation, Congressman Jeff Denham (R-CA), supported by Eric Cantor, has proposed the ENLIST Act to allow illegal aliens who came to the U.S. under age 15 prior to December 31, 2011 to join the U.S. military and receive U.S. citizenshipthis at a time when the U.S. military is downsizing, forcing tens of thousands of personnel from active duty.
On June 2, 2014, faced with 60,000 unaccompanied children trying to cross the border illegally, President Obama declared it an urgent humanitarian situation and named a federal coordinator to make sure the children are cared for but offered no new ideas for how to keep them from trying to enter. Some of the unaccompanied children are as young as three years old. The surge of illegal immigrant minors rushing over the Rio Grande threatens to overwhelm the Texas Border Patrol, and new figures show the unexpected development will cost U.S. taxpayers more than $2 billion this year. More than 1,000 unaccompanied immigrant children are arriving in the U.S. each week, according to figures released by DHS, and some 60,000 are expected to arrive in the U.S. this year. That is up ten times just since 2011.
You dont have to be a rocket scientist to understand that DACA and Eric Cantors promised version of it, the Kids Act, have precipitated this rush to the border in anticipation of a Dreamer amnesty. The same kind of surge happened in 1986 despite the fact that you had to be in the U.S. for five years to apply for amnesty. Imagine the tsunami of illegal aliens into this country if some form of the Senate Gang of 8 bill passes.
Gov. Brewer of AZ should load up those planes and buses and drop off the 1000 illegal kids from the federal government warehouse in Nogales at Cantor’s office and campaign headquarters. After all, he’s played Welcome Wagon host with all those amnesty votes “for the children.”
And I’m guessing these children will not be adoptable, because they have no paperwork to establish that the parents have terminated their parental rights. The goal is to bring in massive amounts of children with no hope of being anything but state wards, completely isolated from family networks who might care. They are destined for a life of sexual slavery and drug abuse.
If they’re adoptable, conservative Christians could take them under their wing and raise up a next generation of conservatives. The Christian churches are far better organized to deal with situations like this than this administration. I’m sure someone smarter than me could figure out how to make this backfire on Obama.
The damn government isn’t enforcing the “law of the land”. It’s time to fire them all for not doing their jobs!
The government of Mexico must take some responsibility in this matter. If Obama henchmen wont, perhaps the citizens of the US should, Maybe a massive boycott against Mexico - no vacations at their resorts, begin prosecuting their citizens who do have visas or work permits for everything possible - deny work opportunities, even if legal. Begin a citizens revolt against everything Mexican - including their flag.
Everything I see or hear of from the Mexican government is anti-American. Wage economic war until they come around.
Love it or how about in front of the WH?
The kind of parent who is told by some traitor government of ours that once the kid gets in the Us army, the parents can come for free sharing as dependents the BAH housing.
Notwithstanding of course that our soldiers cannot claim their own parents or sisters that way...
Savages they are!
