LEVIN: Eric Cantor is only pretending to oppose amnesty

Here's an open plea for Virginia to do a better job in the primary season than Kentucky or Ohio have...


MFP: Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has been a strong advocate for amnesty and illegal immigration.

Cantor has worked hand in hand with La Raza operative Luis Gutierrez to pass the DREAM Act– legislation that would grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens that entered the United States as children (most of whom are now overweight adults)…
"One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.
But facing an unexpectedly tough primary challenge from Dave Brat– Cantor has been forced to pretend to oppose amnesty until after the election…
"The day after Cantor portrayed himself as an anti-amnesty warrior in campaign literature, Brat accused Cantor of coordinating with Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), the Democrat holding the rival press conference, to provide him political cover in his moment of greatest need.

Cantor, Brat noted, had previously visited sites with Gutierrez in a pro-immigration reform tour.
Cantor has even gone so far as to manufacture a fake argument between himself and Obama. After Obama called to wish Cantor a happy Passover– Cantor reported that the two had a heated argument about immigration…
"White House officials expressed surprise at Cantor’s reaction to the Obama phone call, describing it as a pleasant Passover greeting. …

A White House official said the White House was surprised by Mr. Cantor’s reaction, saying Mr. Obama had only called the majority leader to wish him a happy Passover…the official said the call was ‘pleasant.’”
