People in Washington don't like to admit that they were wrong, but no one saw Eric Cantor's primary loss coming, least of all David Brat, the economics professor who, on a shoe-string budget, pulled off one of the biggest upsets in congressional history.
Leftist politicians in Latin America and in our own country appeal to our emotions, to our instincts. But surely we must be compassionate to the millions of Americans who do not have jobs, the millions who actually pay taxes, the millions who are already overloading our welfare system.
Why do we allow the Mexican government, the Guatemalan government, and the Honduran, to exploit us? This country should be outraged at our leadership for not securing our borders. Do any of these Democrat politicians leave their doors unlocked at night? 
It is not unjust that we have laws; it is unjust that some people think that they are above them. While millions wait in line, earnestly hoping to become Americans, illegal immigrants are literally thieves. 
The defeat of Eric Cantor is a heavy loss for the prospects of immigration reform in Congress. The American working class just breathed a sigh of relief.
