Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel tells his caucus in a memo, "With bipartisan passage of a comprehensive bill in the Senate, the onus now falls on the House to pass legislation that echoes the spirit of the Senate and upholds our basic principles: to secure our borders, protect our workers, unite families and offer hardworking immigrants an earned pathway to citizenship. To achieve our ultimate objective - passage - we've identified 23 Republican colleagues in districts where constituents will demand progress on immigration, and where those pressures could persuade our Republican colleagues to support true comprehensive immigration reform." In 12 of these districts, more than 10 percent of the voting age population is Hispanic. [Fewer than 30 percent of districts represented by House Republicans are more than 10 percent Hispanic.]
