CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers are considering a measure that would urge Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

Democratic Sen. Mo Denis and other lawmakers from the Nevada Hispanic Legislative Caucus presented Senate Joint Resolution 21 on Wednesday. The measure seeks changes that would implement a guest worker program and create a pathway to citizenship for legalized immigrants.

The Legislature does not have the power to change immigration law, but Denis said the measure would respectfully ask congressional representatives to do so.

Opponents said they would be more open to the measures described in the resolution if the borders weren’t so porous.

The committee did not take action on the resolution.
