Gov. Sandoval: Arizona law not needed in Nevada
CREATED Apr. 28, 2012
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Gov. Brian Sandoval, who as a candidate angered Hispanics two years ago when he supported Arizona's tough immigration laws, repeated his stance that a similar law is unnecessary in Nevada, regardless of how the U.S. Supreme Court rules in the Arizona case.
Although a favorable ruling from the high court in the Arizona immigration case could embolden efforts to tighten Nevada's laws, success is unlikely.
The Supreme Court justices hinted during arguments this week that they may allow Arizona to enforce its requirement that police officers check the immigration status of people they suspect are in the country illegally.
