Steve Sisolak on Immigration

 

 


Workable pathway to citizenship for law-abiding immigrants

Q: Support DACA, allowing "Dreamers" who arrived illegally as children, then grew up in the US, to achieve legal status if meet certain conditions?

Adam Laxalt (R): Unclear. In 2015, joined lawsuit challenging expansion to cover parents of DACA kids, though didn't join anti-DACA suit.

Steve Sisolak (D): Yes. "Protect these young people who want nothing more than to be accepted by the only country they've ever known."

Q: Immigration: Support path to citizenship for America's 11 million illegal immigrants?

Adam Laxalt (R): No specific position. Hopes DC representatives "can compromise on solutions that secure our border and take all situations into account."

Steve Sisolak (D): Yes. "Create a workable pathway to citizenship for law-abiding immigrants."

[Steve Sisolak addressing camera]: I've taken on bullies my whole life. Never backed down. Never backed away. When you see somebody getting hurt, you have to stand up.

Donald Trump hurts Nevada families. He wants to take healthcare away from 200,000 Nevadans.

[Photo: Trump with CNN Headline: "Trump expected to end program protecting Dreamers"]: He wants to break up families by deporting the DREAMers.

[Photo: Protest march with banner, "Fight for DACA and immigrants"]: He cares more about the NRA than you.

[Photo: Mother with two children]: I'll take on the NRA; I'll take on big Pharma; and I'll take on Donald Trump.

[Photo: Steve sisolak at rally]: As Governor I'll stand up for Nevada and for Nevada families. [Caption: Steve Sisolak for governor.]

Not a sanctuary county; we are in compliance with ICE

Confirming what local officials have claimed for months, the Department of Justice has found no evidence that Clark County is failing to comply with federal immigration authorities. "This validates what the sheriff and I have been saying the entire time--that everything we've done has been in compliance," County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak said. "I appreciate the fact that the DOJ has agreed with our interpretation."
