GOV. SANDOVAL CONSIDERS EXECUTIVE ORDER MAKING NEVADA A SANCTUARY STATE

February 24, 2017

Today in Washington D.C., at the National Governor’s Association meeting, Nevada Governor Sandoval said he would review and consider issuing an Executive Order similar to one signed by Washington State’s Governor Inslee recently made in response to President Trumps stepped up immigration enforcement. Gov. Inslee’s Executive Order prohibits state law enforcement officers from arresting illegal aliens solely based on immigration status.

Sandoval spokeswoman Mari St. Martin issued this statement: “The Governor always acts in the best interest of Nevadans and our state. He will review Governor Inslee’s order and determine whether or not this would be a necessary action for our state.”
