Our leaders, on the right and left, are failing us.

Today we learned that our government is opening a third military base in Oklahoma to house up to 1,200 illegal child immigrants.

We have learned that fliers are popping up in Central America, which essentially tell people that, "If you can get a toe across the border with your child, they'll let you stay."

But what is happening to American children? Why are our leaders ignoring their needs? Today we have 1 in 5 children living in poverty in the United States.

The silence from GOP Leadership on this issue is stunning. GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor has done nothing to stand up for American children; instead, he is encouraging this crisis by repeatedly announcing that he will work with Barack Obama to pass amnesty for illegal children.

As Dave Brat has said, "The crisis at the border is growing every minute, every hour, every day. No House Congressman has done more to encourage illegal immigration than Eric Cantor, who claims amnesty is required by the "the great founding principles of our nation. [...] But today is our chance to fight. A vote for Eric Cantor tomorrow is a vote for open borders and lower wages. Today the people of Virginia can show up to the polls and defeat the entire crony corporate lobby. Today we can restore our borders, rebuild our communities, and revitalize our middle class."
