The following is a statement from Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice:
It’s time for Nevada Republican Congressen Mark Amodei and Joe Heck to step up on immigration reform, and they know it.
Their talk of introducing their own piecemeal bills rings hollow. The best and only way Amodei and Heck can prove their commitment real immigration reform is to cosponsor H.R. 15 and pressure their leadership to allow a vote. We need Republicans to step up. No more excuses.
Immigrants and their allies in Nevada have been demanding real action — and a real path to citizenship. With over 170 pro-immigration events planned this weekend, including 8 in Nevada, it’s time for Amodei, Heck, and Republican leaders to follow through.
