U.S. Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) speaks to members of the media as he arrives at a closed briefing for members of the House of Representatives June 11, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

On Friday, the bipartisan Group of Seven in the House has lost two more members.

Republican representatives Sam Johnson and John Carter — both of Texas — announced they were resigning from the group. Another Republican, Raul Labrador of Idaho, left the group in June.

This comes after four years of trying to hammer out an agreement in the House. For how this will affect immigration legislation moving forward, we're joined by one of the remaining five, Congressman Xavier Becerra.
