Pro-immigration protestors pay Eric Cantor a visit -- at his home


Sean Higgins of the Washington Examiner was on-hand last night when dozens of pro-immigration demonstrators snuck into a D.C.-area condo complex, home of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.


A group of about 60 pro-immigration reform activists late Wednesday evening stormed an Arlington, Va., condominium complex where House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., maintains a home.

The group loudly protested Cantor in the lobby of the building until police arrived, then continued their protest on the street in front of the building before again being told to leave by police.

The protesters never got past the lobby. There were no arrests or injuries in the incident. "We told them they could protest [in front of the building], but they couldn't use bullhorns," a police officer said. The protesters used them anyway. ...

The protesters identified themselves as being with a group called Casa In Action and said their plan was to slide fliers under the doors of all of the building's residents.

The fliers accused Cantor of opposing the "grant[ing] citizenship to millions of undocumented Virginians." The fliers urged his neighbors to "tell him: Rep. Cantor, the time is now for citizenship!"

"The protesters chanted, 'What do we want? Racial justice! When do we want it? Now!'" Higgins adds.  The Casa In Action group also reportedly has plans to take their protest to the homes of other Virginia Republicans, including Reps. Frank Wolf and Bob Goodlatte.
