Read Eric Cantor's anti-"amnesty" campaign mailers

Just-deposed House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and his successful challenger David Brat spent plenty of this spring's primary campaign arguing over immigration. Brat, most recently, said that Cantor was responsible for thousands of child migrants coming from Central America — because he briefly discussed introducing a bill called the "KIDS Act" last year, which would have given legal status to some young unauthorized immigrants. (No bill was ever introduced.) But Cantor, meanwhile, sent out two mailers portraying himself as the man protecting America from the "Obama-Reid amnesty."

The first campaign mailer, via Politico:

The second mailer, via National Journal (this is the one that went out the same week that President Obama announced he was delaying his deportation review to give House Republicans time to work on immigration reform in Congress):
