President Barack Obama is rethinking his stance on immigration reform after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (REP) lost in a GOP Primary to a Tea Party Challenger on Tuesday.
Cantor’s stunning defeat sent shockwaves through Washington yesterday as Republicans, and even Democrats, sat up and took notice.

The defeat sent a strong signal to Washington that Americans are fed up with Washington’s politics — particularly on immigration reform.
