"At the National Building Museum (March 4, 2014), with more than 700 corporate, legislative and community leaders in attendance, the 2014 NCLR (National Council of La Raza) Capital Awards were presented to two groups that have significantly impacted the push for immigration reform over the past year. The first award of the night was presented to the U.S. Senate "Gang of Eight"—the group of senators responsible for creating the bipartisan immigration bill introduced last April [2013]. Sens. Michael Bennet (D--Colo.), Richard Durbin (D--Ill.), Robert Menendez (D--N.J.), and Chuck Schumer (D--N.Y.) were on hand to accept the award on behalf of the Gang of Eight, which also includes Sens. Jeff Flake (R--Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R--S.C.), John McCain (R--Ariz.), and Marco Rubio (R--Fla.). The "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013" (S. 744), which is designed to overhaul the nation's outdated immigration system and provide a roadmap to citizenship for the 11 million aspiring Americans, passed through the Senate last June." 

Added: The "Gang of 8" plan would go no further as 3 months later in June, 2014, the Establishment was stunned by the defeat of Republican open borders advocate, Wall St. darling, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in his Virginia district:

6/14/2014, "Analysis: Why Eric Cantor’s shocking loss likely kills immigration reform this year," Miami Herald, Marc Caputo

"The No. 2 Republican in the U.S. House is a goner. And amid the ashes of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s shocking defeat Tuesday night, comprehensive immigration reform smolders.

This is not to say that immigration reform would have passed this year if the Virginia Republican had not been the first House majority leader to lose since 1899. Immigration reform was already endangered in 2014.

But Cantor’s defeat to tea partyer David Brat was so intertwined with immigration-“amnesty” and “illegal aliens”- that the few fence-sitters in the GOP-led House are going to flock back to the politically right side of the divide."...

"The immediate policy implications of this are clear: Immigration reform is completely dead."

Comment: Evidence if needed that in the minds of the entire US political class the US no longer exists. Getting rid of the southern border solves their second biggest problem as well--us. Our role as global slaves is formalized. In 2014 the House would likely have gone with the Senate's La Raza bill if one person, the revolting Eric Cantor, hadn't lost his election. Yes, he did go straight to a job on Wall St. 

Incidentally, to keep the record straight, "the Tea Party" didn't elect Dave Brat. Activist citizens of Virginia district 7 get all the credit with an assist by Laura Ingraham. She went to the district and campaigned for Dave Brat. She said there was no tea party involvement at all. One national tea party group in particular which had raised millions of dollars said they considered him but decided he wasn't worth backing. Never gave Dave Brat a penny. Co-opted on day one if not earlier by the Establishment, so-called National Tea Party groups eventually became just another Trojan Horse. Local Tea Party groups are something different and many still exist, are active in their local areas, but have little or no money. It's accurate to say Dave Brat agreed with grassroots Americans who since 2009 had identified as Tea Party supporters, people alarmed that the country was being trashed by both political parties. They gave time and money they often didn't have in a desperate attempt to save the country. 

Dave Brat likely noticed that GOP House "leadership" hated the Nov. 2010 landslide they were given by the tea party movement and spent most of their time trying to get rid of the people gifted to them. The GOP had done nothing to deserve being catapulted to House majority--everyone agreed about that. By 2014 citizens of Virginia district 7 had been working for years politely trying to get Eric Cantor to pay attention to the needs of the district. At best they were scorned, treated as dirty peasants. So they walked neighborhoods, went to endless meetings. Giving up was not an option.  

Virginia is thick with GOP Establishment saboteurs whose only purpose is to prevent citizens from getting the candidate they need. Why? The Establishment and trillions of dollars behind them will not allow the GOP to be an opposition party to the democrats. Meaning, the US has one party rule, ie, a de facto dictatorship. The GOP E and democrats have the same agenda: America Last, open borders with endless flows of slave labor from corrupt and violent cultures, extreme globalism, constant foreign wars paid for by US taxpayers, massive free trade deals, and control of fake elections to fool the rubes into thinking they live in a free country. If elections meant anything, The Wall would've been half built by now. Some Communist countries may have "elections", you can go and vote, but every candidate will give you the same result.
