Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Cantor Praises Labor, Business Guest Worker Compromise

Rate this Entry

From Talking Points Memo:



"I applaud the Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO for coming together
to find common ground in an effort to reform our broken immigration
system," said Cantor in a statement. "Their goal of protecting American
workers and ensuring we have the workforce we need to grow the economy
and remain globally competitive is one I share. While we may not agree
on every aspect, it is encouraging that two groups often on opposite
sides of the aisle are serious about putting politics aside and finding
solutions. Let's hope we can follow that lead in the months ahead."





Cantor hasn't endorsed full-on immigration reform, but his remarks lately have been getting better and better. Recently, he suggested he supports the DREAM Act and now he's praising a guest worker strategy. He's still not saying what he thinks about a broader legalization program, but I suspect he's as concerned about the GOP's national brand as people like Karl Rove and Jeb Bush. But he's in a more precarious position given his role in a House that is filled with a lot of anti-immigrants.
