...Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nevada, last month proposed an amendment in the House Ways and Means Committee to add a verification process. Democrats on that committee, including Rep.

minority to mainstream, Latinos find their voice
For the past few years, immigration has been at the core of
the caucus's agenda. Not by choice, but as a reaction to the
anti-immigrant sentiment on Capitol Hill. The immediate past
chair of the caucus, Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), did an admirable
job of calling attention to immigrant issues and defending Latino
rights and benefits in the Republican-controlled House. Yet while
gaining greater visibility for the caucus, Becerra and caucus
immigration chair Luis V. Gutierrez, the Puerto Rican representative
from Chicago, ended up pigeonholing themselves as ethnic activists--and
thus undermining the caucus's credibility among other House members
on immigration issues. According to one Washington- based immigrant
advocate, "The caucus was building a reputation-- fair or
not-- as a bunch of lefties who want to open the border."

Latinos' Political Rise Great Unknown
If Latinos are mainly in the Democratic camp, it is largely

Proposition 187, which cut off benefits to illegal immigrants.
Since 1994, 600,000 Latinos have registered to vote in California,
most of them as Democrats. -- The Arizona Republic

JEFFREY KAYE: Xavier Becerra, chairman of the Congressional
Hispanic Caucus, agrees. The Los Angeles Democrat says there
should be more leeway, particularly if the convictions are old
and for non-violent crimes.
XAVIER BECERRA: If someone fifteen or twenty years ago had
some transgression that has lived a proper life, paying for that
mistake, has a family, has ties to this country, it would cause
a hardship for that individual and the family to see that individual
deported, I think that would be wrong to do. But the law as it
exists now allows us to pull that individual from his or her
JEFFREY KAYE: And would you like to see that change?
XAVIER BECERRA: Certainly we should have more discretion to
ensure that what we're doing is going after the real criminals,
the folks that we need to get out of the country.
