The primary driver of the flood of unaccompanied minors across the southern border is the belief they will be allowed to stay and afforded legal status, according Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake.
In an interview with USA Today Flake, a member of the bipartisan Gang of Eight that pushed immigration reform legislation through the Senate last year, explained that while there are factors like violence and poor economies acting to push Central Americans northward, there has been a dramatic spike that requires a remedy from President Obama.
He added that while he does not believe House Majority Leader Eric Cantors defeat was due to immigration reform, he believes the his defeat spooked some Republicans.

Bennet is the creep in the middle.
IOW Flake is partly to blame for this surge invasion of illegal aliens...
Hola! Bonjour! Hello? What will it take for you nitwits to 'get it'?
Grass is green.
Well...his last name *is* Flake. Maybe rename his first name to “Dandruff” or “Snow”
“He added that while he does not believe House Majority Leader Eric Cantors defeat was due to immigration reform...”
I guess the inability of his office to find Granny’s lost Social Security check is what unhorsed Cantor...
...the HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER, with a HUGE WAR CHEST, and a HUGE NAME ADVANTAGE, who was MOVING UP TO THE TOP OF THE PACK, against a NO-NAME-POLITICAL-NOVICE...
Yea, that must have been it - if only his office could have just made that phone call to SS in a more timely manner, all things would have been just fine with Cantor.
Need to be replaced... need to be replaced... need to be replaced with real conservatives....
Flake taunts his constituents about ramming amnesty down their throats.
Jeff Flake is a nasty traitorous pseudo-libertarian POS. I have seen him devolve over the years since he was elected circa 1992 in the Newt Gingrich surge
Truc, McCain's understudy is definately partly responsible.
