Governor Sisolak Celebrates Immigrant Heritage Month

To honor the many contributions made by immigrants across Nevada, Governor Sisolak celebrated Immigrant Heritage Month throughout June, meeting with DACA students, discussing ways he can further support entrepreneurs with immigrant small business owners in Reno, attending Nevada Democratic Victory’s Immigrant Heritage Month celebration and discussing second-term priorities with Telemundo.
 
“Nevada’s immigrant communities are critical to our economy and our state’s future success,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “As Immigrant Heritage Month comes to an end, I want to remind all Nevadans that, as long as I’m your governor, I’ll do everything in my power to keep our state welcoming and inclusive to anyone trying to build a better future for themselves.”
 
Since taking office, Governor Sisolak has supported Nevada’s immigrant community and our economy by lowering costs for families, creating Nevada’s first ever Office for New Americansremoving citizenship requirements from the occupational and professional licensing processes to support business creation, signing the Keep Nevada Working Act to support the economic contributions of immigrants and establishing the English Language Learners Bill of Rights to support every student in every classroom.
