CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada senators have passed a nonbinding measure that urges Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

Senate Joint Resolution 21 passed unanimously on Monday. It now heads to the Assembly for review.

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 Democratic Sen. Mo Denis said the measure would respectfully ask congressional representatives to do so.

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