Republicans boot Rep. Norma Torres out of immigration meeting

Rep. Norma Torres, D-Pomona, is among a group of Congressional Hispanic Caucus members who said Republicans kicked them out of a meeting with the acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thursday, Feb. 16.

Torres made it inside the meeting room before being told to leave by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., who chairs the House judiciary committee.
