Voters want immigration reform? Not after this election.

To the editor: Earlier this month America had a midterm election. You say there is "broad voter support for [immigration] reform," according to polls — but what about the election results? ("GOP must act on immigration," Editorial, Nov. 10)

Refresh my memory. Did former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) lose his seat in a GOP primary because he was or wasn't OK with amnesty for illegal immigrants? Did the Republicans win more seats in the House and take control of the Senate because they support amnesty, immigration reform and President Obama's planned executive amnesty?

Don't you think the election results spoke louder and clearer than your public opinion polls?
