News Corp Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch said his "heart sank" after he learned of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's stunning Republican primary loss last week, because he believes Congress needs to tackle the issue of immigration reform this year.
Murdoch, the chair of News Corp., has an op-ed in Thursday's Wall Street Journal in which he argued immigration reform "can't wait."
After Cantor's loss, immigration reform was almost universally pronounced dead as a possibility this year, as it was perceived to be one of the issues on which Cantor lost favor with his Republican constituents. But Murdoch, touting his status as an immigrant from Australia, writes it would be "the wrong lesson and an undesirable national consequence" of a local election.

AMERICA IS BEING INVADED ! ENFORCE OUR LAWS !
well, there you go Fox News fans. Fox will work in Murdoch's 'amnesty' propaganda every chance. enjoy it.
Deport Rupert and Soros. We don’t need those who encourage lawbreakers.
Rupert Murdoch a new member of Harry Reid’s we have no Billionaires Club
Congress will hold off on immigration until the lame duck session after the election. Then, with nothing to lose, they’ll pass it. I don’t see any way to stop them.
I am so f$#%ing tired of hearing “immigration reform”. There is nothing to reform, just enforce the gd laws!!!
Murdoch does not give one logical reason in that article for why we need immigration reform. Not one.
Rupert isn’t rich enough? He needs to depress American’s wages further?
A - hole.
That's just because there aren't any.
How about we reform the government to enforce the laws!
Yep. Turdoch and Soreass. Two that should be deported.
Rupert’s heart sank when he heard Cantor lost because Rupert spent millions of dollars making sure Cantor was bought off.
It’s hard to find an ethical politician who stays bought once he has been bought. Cantor will be missed
Murdoch is hereby placed on my $hit list.
Murdoch was all you needed to see to know that this is BS!
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government,
Interesting. A couple weeks ago Hannity had some guy on who represented a ‘conservative GOP Hispanic group’. No matter how many times and ways that he asked the question this fellow simply would not say that securing the border was something that had to be done before any other issue was addressed. He just would not acknowledge the problem existed and kept on the talking points about needing to ‘reform a broken system’ and provide ‘honest hard working people’ a ‘path to citizenship’.
Part of this BS is that even Hispanics whose families came from Mexico or Central America who are very acculturated and politically conservative can't bring themselves to say the border requires securing even if they intellectually know it. It is just visceral for them. Every family has stories of relatives who waded the river or climbed fences to get here. It is very disturbing to realize a big chunk of the US population basically crosses their fingers when they claim to be Americans first. Some part of them really isn't . They are Latinos first at some level and that triumphs being American.
People like Murdock are just pushing their ‘borderless world’ agenda. A Class of very rich plutocrats simply want to be able to move labor and capital around in ways that enable them to constantly gain relative advantage. If it wrecks your city or country , tough. This is what Soros did in ‘97 and crashed the Asian money markets and produced the Black Monday of 1997 on the NYSE. For him it was just an exercise in gaining relative advantage in manipulating the Thai Baht.
I wish that piece of crap Rupert Murdoch would go back to Australia.
It wasn’t enough that this moron ruined The Wall Street Journal, now he wants to ruin all of America.
The Wall Street Journal was for open borders long before Rupert came on the scene.
Rupert did a lot to keep Fox News and conservative papers like the New York Post and the Boston Herald in business.
I wonder what Valarie Jarret offered Murdoch.
Article and date?
And I think you’re giving Murdoch way too much credit.
