Ingraham Slams Labrador on Immigration:
'So You're Where Cantor Is?'
Breitbart -- June 17 2014   
    House Majority Leader hopeful Rep. Raul Labrador's (R-ID) stance on immigration received a negative reception on Tuesday's broadcast of Laura Ingraham's radio show. Ingraham asked Labrador if he would sign the FAIR Pledge, and he responded “No I will not,” to which Ingraham retorted, “So, you're where Cantor is because he won't either?”
    The two then squared off over Labrador's support for increased guest workers and legal immigrants. Ingraham accused Labrador of ignoring the needs of middle class workers.
    “Their wages are flat-lining and their standard of living is deteriorating, yet you want to bring in more guest workers and foreign workers into America?” Ingraham said.
    “If we do it the right way, we can grow the economy,” Labrador replied.
    “So the Americans are too lazy?” Ingraham added. [...]  
    “They are both what I would call high immigration guys," Center for Immigration Studies director of research Steven Camarota explained to Breitbart News. "They are inclined to see the benefits of immigration, not the costs. They're inclined to be sympathetic to employers who want more workers and not as inclined to see the general wage stagnation across the U.S. economy and the enormous number of working-age people not working.”..
