Vegas DREAMers Kicking Off Clinton Get-Out-the-Vote Effort

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hillary Clinton’s campaign is working with young immigrant activists to push people out to the polls this fall.

DREAMers and Nevada Democratic candidates are holding a news conference Monday at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas.

They’ll help kick off a Clinton initiative called “Mi Sueno, Tu Voto,” which means “my dream, your vote.” It’ll help mobilize young immigrants who aren’t allowed to vote to secure commitments to vote from people who can.

The news conference marks the fourth anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which defers deportation for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. More than 12,000 Nevadans are participating in the program.
