Cantor blasts Obama for immigration attack on GOP

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is criticizing President Barack Obama for attacking the same lawmakers he's supposed to be working with on immigration.

The Virginia Republican says Obama called him Wednesday to discuss Obama's desire for an immigration overhaul. The call came after Obama released a statement accusing Republicans of repeatedly failing to act and of being behind the times on immigration.

Cantor says Obama still hasn't learned how to work effectively with Congress. He says Obama's statement shows he has no sincere desire to work together.

Obama supports a bipartisan Senate bill that has stalled in the House, where Republicans prefer a piecemeal approach. Cantor says House Republicans don't support the Senate bill and the House won't vote on it.

The White House had no immediate reaction to Cantor's remarks.
