Cantor: children of illegal immigrants should get U.S. citizenship
This shows how utterly useless Republicans are:
Representative Eric Cantor, the No. 2 Republican in the House of Representatives, said Congress could make quick progress on immigration if lawmakers agreed to give citizenship to children - an idea he opposed when it came up for a vote in 2010 as the DREAM Act. "The best place to begin, I think, is with the children. Let's go ahead and get that under our belt, put a win on the board," Cantor said on NBC's "Meet the Press." Cantor is leading an effort to improve his party's image as many Republicans worry they will be consigned to irrelevancy in coming years if they do not reach out to the fast-growing Latino electorate, which strongly supports immigration reform.Cantor's loyalties are to the Republican party, rather than to his constituents. "Winning the next election" is the only goal people such as Cantor can imagine. Americans who do not want to see their country become yet another Third-World banana republic need real leaders who will fight for their interests, rather than the interests of big business and La Raza (translation: Das Volk).
