Cantor clarifies position on one part of immigration debate
WASHINGTON POST | BY ED O’KEEFE | May 21
House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.) said Wednesday that he supports a GOP-sponsored measure that would allow the children of illegal immigrants who serve in the U.S. military to seek U.S. citizenship. But he declined again to say when or if he will schedule a vote on the proposal.
A handful of Republicans who represent districts with fast-growing Latino communities are pushing to enact legislation that would allow the children of illegal immigrants who enlist in the U.S. military to eventually seek permanent resident status or full citizenship.
