SCOTUS Deadlock a Reminder to Nevada’s Latino Community that Congressman Heck Has Failed Them

Congressman Heck joined fellow Washington Republicans in lawsuit calling for the repeal of President Obama’s 2014 Immigration Executive Actions, which were effectively struck down by the Supreme Court this morning

Las Vegas, NV – Today, following the Supreme Court’s deadlocked decision in Texas v. United States, Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Zukowski released the following statement:

Today’s decision is a blow to the thousands of Nevada families and workers that will suffer from the prevention of President Obama’s Executive Actions – Actions that were only necessary because Congressman Heck and Washington Republicans refused to do their job and pass comprehensive immigration reform. Thousands of Nevada families are at risk of being torn apart because of this mean-spirited, anti-immigrant lawsuit Congressman Heck supported. Unfortunately, Congressman Heck’s support for this lawsuit isn’t surprising considering he supports a candidate for President who demonizes Mexican immigrants as ‘rapists’ and pushes debunked right-wing conspiracy theories about Sharia Law coming to the United States.”
