AURORA, Colo. (AP) Will the apparent slow death of immigration legislation have any political repercussions this year?

If so, they probably will be felt in the subdivisions, shopping centers and ethnic eateries wrapped around Denver's southern end.

Republican Mike Coffman represents the fast-changing congressional district.

He's among a few vulnerable Republican members in line to be targeted by immigrant rights advocates.

They're targets if the House doesn't pass an immigration bill before the November election that would offer legal status to millions of people who entered the U.S. illegally or overstayed their visas.

Democrats are focused on about two dozen GOP-held seats where immigration could be a factor.
