Nevada State Senate Calls on Congress to Pass Immigration Reform
April 20, 2015
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Republican-led Nevada state senate unanimously passed a resolution today, calling on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
The bipartisan resolution calls on Congress to enact reforms that would provide legal status with a clear path to citizenship, uphold border security that is consistent with our nation’s values, advance the future flow of immigrants, and reunite families.
“While Congressional Republicans may have sidelined immigration for the time being, Republicans in the states are urging action,” said Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum. “Nevada’s state senate resolution highlights the important contributions immigrants make to the state’s economy and communities and reflects the opinion of the majority of Americans who support immigration reforms that welcome immigrants, respect the rule of law and better our nation. Nevada Republicans realize federal immigration reform is smart politics and smart policy – it’s about time Congress realized the same.”
