Breitbart ^ | 6/9/14 | Tony LeePosted on 6/10/2014, 2:35:06 PM by jimbo123Dave Brat, who is challenging House Majority Leader Eric Cantor R-VA in Tuesday’s primary, believes Cantor betrayed his district on amnesty and shares the blame for surge in illegal immigrant children flooding into the country.
“One you announced that kids are welcome, they’re going to head in,” Brat said on Breitbart News Sunday of Cantor’s support for giving the children of illegal immigrants amnesty and citizenship because he believes it is one of the “founding principles” of the country.
Brat, who has been surging in the polls, said Cantor has taken “zero responsibility” on the issue and blasted him for falsely claiming that he was “unwavering on immigration” when Cantor has really been “bobbing and weaving” on the issue. Brat noted that Cantor was “100% all-in” on amnesty and support for the Kids Act, the Enlist Act, and the Dream Act before one of Cantor’s top allies was ousted from a GOP Chairmanship in his district. Brat said amnesty legislation will be “right back on track after the primary is over” if Cantor prevails.
“He shoved back and said ‘I’ll see you tomorrow,’ and walked out,” Cantor said after the meeting.
As he left, Obama complained that Republicans are “focused on positioning and political posturing,” rather than trying to find an answer to the debt crisis.
The two sides are due to meet again on Thursday afternoon, just 19 days before the Treasury’s Aug. 2 deadline for increasing the $14.3 trillion limit.
It will be the fifth day in a row that the president has led talks that have included the leaders of both parties in the House and Senate.
