Preserving and Benefitting from “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” programs

Attorney General Ford Joins Multi-state Coalition in Support of Efforts to Preserve and Fortify DACA

Carson City, NV – Today, Attorney General Aaron D. Ford joined a coalition of 24 attorneys general in support of the federal government’s efforts to preserve and fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In a comment letter, the coalition highlights the critical contributions of hundreds of thousands of Dreamers to broader public health efforts, the economy and communities across the country — and urges the federal government to finalize regulations strengthening DACA.

Nevada AG

“I will always fight for the right for Dreamers to remain in their communities,” said AG Ford. “My office will always fight for our Nevada family, and make no mistake, Dreamers are a part of that. DACA recipients strengthen our communities, and we must protect the rights of these people to remain in the country, and state, they call home.”

Since 2012, DACA has protected approximately 825,000 individuals who grew up in this country from deportation. Most of the recipients have known no home other than the United States. DACA has enabled hundreds of thousands of grantees to enroll in colleges and universities; start local businesses; and give back to their communities as teachers, medical professionals, engineers and entrepreneurs.

The contributions of DACA recipients to their communities became especially evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many stood and continue to stand, on the front lines as essential workers. As of April 2020, an estimated 27,000 healthcare workers and support staff depend on DACA for their authorization to work in the United States, including nurses, dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, home health aides, technicians and others.

In the comment letter, the coalition asserts:

  • DACA has public safety and public health benefits for states;
  • States benefit economically from DACA and DACA recipients;
  • DACA and DACA recipients are important to states’ higher education institutions;
  • States have adopted laws, regulations and programs in reliance on DACA, and
  • Opponents of DACA are unable to substantiate any alleged harms.

In filing the comment letter, Attorney General Ford joins the attorneys general of California, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.

NV-DMV warns the public that crooks posing as DMV employees are out to get your money…

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is warning the public of a new text message phishing scam targeting Nevadans.

Scammers posing as the Nevada DMV are sending out text messages asking recipients to update their MyDMV profile. A link in the text leads to a web page that resembles the real MyDMV portal.

“We’ve seen scams like this before,” said Nevada DMV Director Julie Butler. “But this one specifically targets the MyDMV portal and its customers.”

Anyone receiving this or a similar message is asked not to respond or provide any personal data. The message should be deleted immediately.

The Nevada DMV never sends unsolicited text messages or emails, and the agency will not ask customers to update their MyDMV accounts. Maintaining an account is solely the customer’s responsibility. Accounts that are inactive for 18 months are automatically deactivated.

Most updates to personal information, such as name changes, must be completed in person at a DMV office.

To spot a text or email scam, officials say to look for the telltale signs of phishing: Poor spelling or grammar, forceful language or use of threats, sense of urgency, or the link provided does not match that of the legitimate agency web site.

“If the message doesn’t seem right, chances are it’s not,” Butler added.

The CC Sheriff’s Office Would Like Some Information…

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is seeking the help of the public, for a hit and run which occurred on November 11th at the intersection of South Curry Street and West Koontz Lane in Carson City.

There is no suspect at this time but a vehicle description was obtained. The suspect drives an early 2015 to 2020 Dodge Ram pickup truck black in color with an unknown license plate. The pickup was hauling a black trailer with a white and red backhoe excavator.

According to the reporting party and video collected on scene, the driver stopped at the stop sign on South Curry Street and West Koontz Lane. The boom of the backhoe caught the phone line as the truck drove through the intersection and brought down the phone line. The driver did not stop and continued to drive southbound on South Curry Street.

If you recognize the vehicle in the pictures please call the Carson City Sheriff’s Office and reference case number 21-7470 or Deputy J. Carillo at jcarillo@carson.org or 775-8872020 Ext. 45689

Our year-round drum beat – WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT!!!

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is Joining Forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement agencies to raise awareness of seat belt use from November 22nd through November 29th, for motorists and passengers not wearing their seat belts.

Seat Belt use saves lives, fact.

  1. Buckling up helps keep you safe and secure inside your vehicle, not buckling up can result in being totally ejected from the vehicle in a crash, which is almost always deadly.
  2. Air bags are not enough to protect you; in fact, the force of an air bag can seriously injure or even kill you if you’re not buckled up.
  3. Improperly wearing a seat belt, such as putting the strap below your arm, puts you and your children at risk in a crash, remember, children must be securely buckled up and properly secured in child safety seats.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office remains dedicated to bringing the number of fatalities on our roadways to zero through increasing public awareness about the dangers of speeding. More information about safe driving and the state’s Zero Fatalities goal is available online at www.ZeroFatalitiesNV.com.
