NV Dems Statement on Astrid Silva Addressing 2016 Democratic National Convention

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on today’s announcement that Las Vegas immigration reform advocate and DREAMer Astrid Silva will speak at the 2016 Democratic National Convention:

“Nevada Democrats are thrilled that Astrid Silva will have such a prominent role at our national convention in Philadelphia. Her story of resilience despite the constant fear of deportation that she lived with for years will undoubtedly remind voters across the country what’s at stake in this election. Republican obstruction on immigration reform hurts our economy and puts hardworking families at risk of being ripped apart. If we want to give these families hope and fix our broken immigration system, we need to elect Hillary Clinton and Democrats up and down the ballot.”
