Eric Cantor "Dishonors the Founders" Says Challenger

Good morning,

My name is John Bennett, and I'm a writer whose work appears in the Daily Caller, Townhall.com, and World Net Daily (and also a Virginia native).
 
Virginia patriots will be very interested to know that Eric Cantor is responsible for the following controversial comment: "One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.”

I interviewed several conservative historians, as well as Cantor's challenger Dave Brat, and they picked apart the comment. Cantor's press office didn't reply to my numerous requests for explanation.

If Cantor actually believes what he is saying, then he's logically opposed to immigration enforcement period.
When parents have to answer for the consequences of their actions, children are often affected. That's a reason for parents to follow the law, not a reason to violate the law or cheapen American citizenship.

In any event, I hope that you and your organization enjoy this piece.

Sincerely,
