Nevada Immigration Reform Initiative may appear on the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot in Nevada. The proposed measure would authorize police question a person's immigration status if there are any suspicions that they are illegal immigrants.[1]

The initiative emulates an April 23, 2010 approved immigration bill in Arizona. A repeal was filed days following it's approval. It also resembles a proposed initiative in Ohio to reform immigration throughout the state.

In early May 2010 U.S. Senate candidate Chad Christensen and currently Las Vegas assemblyman, said he is currenlty working on a draft for a Nevada Immigration Reform Initiative.[1]


In support of the initiative, sponsor Chad Christensen said,"It's time for the people of Nevada to stand together and let our voices be heard. Illegal immigration is costing the taxpayers in Nevada $700 million a year." Christensen argues that this is not an issue that can be delayed.[1]
