In an admission that political rivals promptly used to attack him, Los Angeles City Council candidate Raymond J. Magana acknowledged Thursday that he falsely stated that he was a California native when he registered to vote in 1978, when actually he was born in Mexico. But he said he did so only because he was raised from the age of 10 in Los Angeles by older sisters who told him he was U. S.-born to protect him from discrimination.

In the crowded race to replace Ernani Bernardi in the Los Angeles City Council seat for the 7th District, Raymond Magana is the first candidate to raise more than $50,000, the city Ethics Commission said Tuesday. That puts Magana, an attorney, ahead of reputed front runner Lyle Hall, a fire captain who ran second to Bernardi in the race four years ago.

In their first public debate, candidates for the Los Angeles City Council seat in the largely Latino 7th District decried illegal immigration and called for deportation of undocumented aliens who commit crimes. "The days of open borders are over," said Ray Magana, who is himself an immigrant from Mexico. "We need to take care of our own economic needs." "If it's illegal, I'm opposed to it," declared Richard Alarcon at the debate Monday night in Lake View Terrace.
