Nevada Senate Urges Congress to Pass Immigration Reform

Senators in Nevada passed a bill that is a nonbinding measure to urge the United States Congress to pass a Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill. The Senate Joint Resolution 21, as it is known, passed unanimously on April 20, 2015 where it will now head to the Assembly for review.

The bill seeks changes that could implement a guest worker program as well as create a pathway to U.S. citizenship for legalized immigrants. The Nevada Legislature does not have the power to change U.S. Federal Immigration law, but the measure will respectfully ask Congressional Representatives to do so.

Our immigration attorneys in Los Angeles follow the latest in U.S. immigration news and reform and are glad to see the unanimous support of the Nevada Senate for immigration reform.
