Eric Cantor's Profile in Spinelessness!
Posted by Staff

The Daily Caller:

1) On Friday, the spokesman for GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor told the AP there would be no floor vote on the so-called ENLIST Act,  a seemingly narrow amnesty (for young illegal immigrants who serve in the military) that could nevertheless be expanded into a much broader immigration amnesty by the Senate, which has otherwise been unable to get such a bill through the House. The Cantor camp’s statement came after he had been (accurately) criticized for supporting amnesty by his primary opponent, Dave Brat.

“[Cantor spokesman] Doug Heye said no stand-alone vote on the measure would be permitted ….”

2) The next Wednesday, AP reported that “immigration advocates” were “angry” with Cantor for stalling “reform.”

“Eric Cantor is the No. 1 guy standing between the American people and immigration reform,” Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, a pro-immigrant group, said on a conference call …” Facebook Fark Furl
