Jose Huizar District 14 With waves of marchers filling the streets around City Hall in recent weeks to protest the nation's immigration policy, the four — Cardenas, Jose Huizar, Alex Padilla and Ed Reyes — have had a unique vantage point.
They are on the inside looking out, having come from families that made the leap in just two generations from poor immigrant laborers to elected leaders in the nation's second-largest city. These four are not the first Latinos on the council, but their families' stories are all variations on the classic American immigrant tale: Today, at 43, he is one of four council members whose parents grew up in Mexico and came — and are here legally — to the U.
Young, poor and with little in the way of a future, the newlyweds immigrated to the United States. Andres' education went as far as the first grade, Maria's the second.
He started picking crops near Stockton, later became a day laborer and eventually started his own gardening business. He and his wife settled in Pacoima, where they raised 11 children. The Cardenas family had a bit of good luck. Maria Cardenas was born on Catalina Island, making her an American citizen.
When she was 3, her family returned to rural Temastian, in the state of Jalisco, where eventually she met Andres Cardenas. After moving north, Tony Cardenas' father got his first job in the United States, picking crops in the fields near Stockton.
Today a giant photo of him digging potatoes resides on the wall behind his son's City Hall desk, a reminder and a promise all in one. The family settled in Pacoima in and bought a house the next year. Cardenas' father eventually began his own gardening business and didn't have to look far for help.

One son drowned in a accident. Tony Cardenas started his own realty firm and then decided to run for the Assembly, in part, he said, because no one from Pacoima had ever before made it to Sacramento.
Today he represents parts of the northeast San Fernando Valley on the council. The Padilla Family Padilla's father was from Puerto Vallarta, on Mexico's western coast, and his mother from the desert city of Chihuahua, not far from the Texas border.
They came to the U. To this day, Padilla isn't sure if, initially, his parents came here legally. After marrying, they returned to Mexico and applied for legal residency in the U. His father, Santos Padilla, was "master of the griddle" at several of the Du-Par's restaurants — he's still working as a cook — and his mom, Lupe Padilla, had a regular stable of homes that she cleaned.
In the afternoons during the school year, the public library in Pacoima served as baby-sitter for the three Padilla children. In summer, they switched to the local pool.
Inmuch to his own surprise, Padffla was accepted into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He had applied to, but -not visited, the school and had never traveled east of El Paso. Although he graduated with a degree In mechanical engineering, he returned home after college in and tell in love with the world of local politics.
He said he was driven largely by that year's Proposition ,' which called for denying illegal immigrants many social benefits but which was overturned in federal court. Two days later, his mother became a U.
Padffla, now 33, is the youngest member of the council -and was three times elected its president.
