Immigration Rally Crashes Cantor Reception

Supporters of comprehensive immigration reform stormed an election night reception for U.S. Majority Leader Eric Cantor, shortly after he lost his seat to Tea Party favorite Dave Brat. While Brat attacked Cantor for being too liberal on immigration, supporters of reform say the Majority Leader has been the main roadblock in congress.

Dozens of protestors flooded into the Westin Hotel in Henrico shortly after Cantor addressed supporters. Police told them to leave. Gustavo Andrade, is the Organizing Director for CASA, a non-profit who advocates for immigration reform. CASA says 80 percent of polled primary voters were in support of reform.
