Two Years Later: Deferred Action In Nevada

  

Two years ago, President Barack Obama signed an order to protect certain immigrants who arrived in the country as young children. Many young undocumented immigrants in Southern Nevada have benefited from the program. But residents of our region have not been approved as quickly as those in other areas.

So how can the program work better in Las Vegas? And is it a good idea to allow the president to make immigration policy through executive order?
