Gov. Sisolak signs onto statement to support legislative solutions for immigrants living in limbo

Carson City – In the wake of the Trump administration’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED), Governor Steve Sisolak is joining more than 500 state and local elected officials by signing a bipartisan statement urging Congress to pass permanent protections and a path to citizenship for Dreamers and TPS holders.

“One out of every five Nevadans are immigrants, and our state welcomes them and celebrates their contributions to our thriving economy and cultural diversity,” Gov. Sisolak said. “It’s long past time that Dreamers and TPS holders in Nevada and across the country stop being forced to live in fear and uncertainty. Passing permanent protections for Dreamers and TPS holders will send a strong message that we value these individuals’ role in our communities and will allow them to continue to make meaningful contributions to our economy without the pain of living in limbo.

“Here in Nevada, my administration is taking a bold step in helping new and aspiring Americans participate fully in civic and economic life by establishing the Governor’s Office for New Americans to help immigrants and refugees navigate the process of integration while promoting their important contributions to our state,” Gov. Sisolak continued. “The success of our state is rooted in our ongoing commitment to welcoming and integrating new, aspiring, and visiting immigrants into the Nevada family. Congress must follow states’ examples and finally pass permanent protections for these important members of our communities – not only is it the smart thing to do, it’s the right thing to do.”

Bad Accident at Disc and Vista in the north valley

White SUV headed north on Vista crossed over and struck the blue Mustang head on.

A young lady driver in a blue Mustang was stopped in the southbound Vista left turn lane at Disc Drive Monday night.  Suddenly a large white SUV headed north on Vista entered the intersection, but for some reason the driver lost control.  His SUV veered over to the left, jumped the center divide and rammed the Mustang, punching it back a good 30′ from the left turn lane it was sitting in.  The SUV driver lost control and his vehicle rolled up on its side, still in the north bound lane.

Blue Mustang waiting to turn left was hit hard.

Police say neither driver was injured.  The driver of the SUV is expected to be cited for causing the accident.  His insurance company is going to be writing some big checks and his insurance rates will likely rise substantially.  Again, nobody hurt.  

Traffic was being re-routed all over the place as other commuters strugged to get home.

The vehicles were towed and Vista Blvd was reopened shortly after 7pm.

SUV coming through intersection drifted over the divider and rammed the Mustang.

Traffic on Vista was blocked for well over an hour.
