Nevada’s High Political Stakes of Immigration Reform

Hosted by

President Obama has scheduled a prime-time address to the nation tomorrow night to explain an executive order on immigration reform. On Friday he’ll travel to Las Vegas, the home of Senator Harry Reid. The Nevada Democrat has questioned Republicans’ motive for not acting. ”Republican presidents going back to Dwight Eisenhower have used executive action to fix immigration, so why would this be such an issue with the Republicans. They’re looking for an excuse, an excuse not to help people who are so deserving.” John Ralston writes for and Politico.
