Harry Reid plans immigration reform event
By Sarah Rosier
Las Vegas, Nevada: On July 1, 2013, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) will hold a rally for immigration reform. In addition to local Nevada politicians, Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D) will also make an appearance.
Reid has recently made headlines for referring to members of the Republican members in opposition of the bill as "crazies" during a recent press conference. Although not a member of the Gang of Eight, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators working on the comprehensive immigration reform bill, Reid has been a staunch supporter of the bill and had stated that he would like the Senate to vote on the bill by the Fourth of July recess.
