Cortez Masto Hosts ‘Know Your Rights’ Event in Las Vegas

Know Your Rights - June 2019

Las Vegas, Nev. –  U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) held a Know Your Rights event at the Immigrant Home Foundation with local immigration attorneys and mental health professionals to share how Nevada immigrants can receive legal resources and support in the face of President Trump’s attacks on immigrant families. As part of the event, Senator Cortez Masto also heard from families in Nevada on how President Trump’s recent deportation threats are personally impacting them and the Las Vegas community.

“Today, I heard from immigrant families in Las Vegas who are scared and under attack by this President. To them, I had one message: you belong here. Immigrants are hardworking members of our community who contribute in so many ways, I want immigrant families – Latino, Asian-American and Pacific Islander, African and others to know that Nevadans are with you and that my office can be a resource to you. I encourage immigrant communities to know their rights and have provided a Know Your Rights document and Immigrant Resource Guide to get the word out. I’ll continue to fight in the Senate against this President’s attacks on immigrants in Nevada and throughout America.”


At today’s Know Your Rights event, Senator Cortez Masto shared resources in English and Spanish for immigrant communities in Nevada to seek support, legal services and medical assistance. In May, Senator Cortez Masto unveiled a new Immigrant Resource Guide to help Nevadans navigate America’s immigration system, educate them about resources and provide important information on services available to them in Nevada. The Immigrant Resource Guide is available for download in both English and Spanish.
