Las Vegas, NV – Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released a video as part of Dream Big Nevada’s DREAMers 2020 campaign today expressing his continued support for DREAMers and encouraging the 14,265 Nevada DREAMers to renew their DACAs
Reid joins a long list of community leaders and elected officials who have also produced similar videos expressing their support, including Governor Steve Sisolak, Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Senator Jacky Rosen, Rep. Susie Lee and Rep. Steven Horsford as part of Dream Big’s DREAMers 2020 campaign.
“The Supreme Court is weighing this as we speak and will be rendering a decision anytime now that will have long-term impact on DACA recipients,” said former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, from his home in Henderson, Nevada.
“DREAMers 2020 is our campaign to make sure DREAMers are at the forefront of the 2020 political conversation. We can’t vote, but we are an essential part of this community. With the upcoming Supreme Court decision, DREAMers have a lot at stake in the 2020 election,” said DREAM Big Nevada’s Executive Director, Astrid Silva.
Along with the DACA videos, DREAM Big Nevada has released information about resources available to the undocumented community during the COVID-19 pandemic. These include resources ranging from food pantries to financial assistance and small business loans.
“People are turning to us to provide them with accurate information, and we’re happy to be able to do our part to make sure our community is able to get the help they need during these difficult times,” continued Silva.
