WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of the Republicans in California's congressional delegation are sounding like Democrats when it comes to immigration reform, arguing that changing the law is necessary to help farmers and business, and keep families together.

As the state's June 3 primary approaches, Republican Reps. David Valadao and Jeff Denham are emphasizing for voters their support for an immigration overhaul.

But Democrats are questioning their effectiveness as they work to make inroads in competitive congressional districts with growing Latino populations.

Democrats need 17 seats to gain the majority in the House, and the lack of progress on an immigration bill could work to their advantage.

Immigration also could play a role in a handful of open seats around the country, including those held by outgoing Republican Reps. Gary Miller and Buck McKeon.
