Statement on Gov Sandoval and “General” Laxalt Signing on to Lawsuit Aimed at Deporting DREAMers

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement upon the State of Nevada joining the lawsuit opposing President Obama’s immigration executive action:

“Governor Sandoval and his ‘trainwreck’ Attorney General, Adam Laxalt, have just sent a clear message to Nevada immigrants that appealing to the anti-immigrant, TEA Party wing of the Republican Party is more important to them than keeping families together.  If Brian Sandoval and Adam Laxalt had their way, thousands of Nevadans could face deportation and countless families would be at risk of being torn apart.  I urge Governor Sandoval to insist Attorney General Laxalt withdraw from this partisan, irresponsible, and mean-spirited lawsuit that is nothing more than a slap in the face to Nevada’s immigrant community.”
