Israel is a reverse commuter. He and many other day laborers get up before dawn each day and ride for two hours on RTD buses from the Central American barrio near MacArthur Park to a placid suburban mall in Agoura Hills. There they wait for hours, and sometimes for days, to be hired off the street by subcontractors in pickup trucks and homeowners in BMWs.

The Santa Clarita City Council, at the urging of immigrant-rights groups, declined Tuesday night to approve an ordinance that would have made it a misdemeanor for day laborers to solicit work on city streets or sidewalks. Instead, the council agreed to develop what Councilman Carl Boyer III called a "humane solution" to the traffic problem caused by scores of men who gather each morning along San Fernando Road in Newhall to find a day's work.

A proposed Santa Clarita city ordinance would make it a misdemeanor for day laborers to solicit work on city streets or sidewalks--a measure that immigration rights groups said would be the harshest move yet in Los Angeles County against the workers.

In Southern California, an estimated 20,000 men solicit work on streets daily, organizers said.

Los Angeles County is exploring the possibility of requiring future contractors to participate in a federal program that checks whether employees are legal residents authorized to work in the United States. The Board of Supervisors voted 5 to 0 Tuesday to have county officials review E-Verify and make a recommendation on mandating the program for contractors, which could include drug treatment facilities, construction companies and foster family agencies. E-Verify is a free, online program that uses federal databases to verify that new hires are in the country legally and eligible to work.

Work permits were issued Thursday to most of the illegal immigrants aboard a pickup that led Riverside County deputies on a wild freeway chase that ended in videotaped beatings. Federal immigration officials in Los Angeles said they issued the permits to 16 of the 19 immigrants taken into custody after the chase. They said they acted at the request of the U.S. attorney's office, which is investigating the beatings. "The U.S.

The Los Angeles City Council agreed Wednesday to create six alternative hiring sites for day laborers as part of a six-month pilot project to get the immigrant workers off street corners. If the pilot project is successful, the council also agreed to create hiring sites in each of the city's 15 council districts in what would be the nation's most sweeping effort to regulate itinerant immigrant workers.
