NBC’s chief White House corespondent Chuck Todd pointed to a story originally broken Breitbart Texas abut the U.S.-Mexican border being flooded with illegal immigrant children as the main reason behind the “perfect storm” that caused House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to loss the GOP primary to Tea Party challenger Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA).
Todd credited the grassroots anti immigration movement reaction to the story.
Brat campaigned against Cantor’s version of the DREAM Act, to which Todd said, “What’s the current crisis the border is dealing. It’s been lighting up talk radio. You have an urgency to the issue.”
