Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Meets with Hispanic Teens

The Senior Senator from Nevada, Harry Reid, came to the battle ground where his former senatorial opponent Sharon Angle was declared ‘finished’ – the Rancho High School.

The Rancho High School is a local high school in Las Vegas with a 70 percent Latino population some of which are illegal immigrants.  This is the very same high school where Republican senatorial candidate Angle came to tell the students she couldn’t tell them apart from Asian students.

Though Reid is on the side of the political fence most of these kids appear to be he faced tough questions especially around the issue of the DREAM Act. 

When the students asked if there would be another vote on the DREAM Act Reid wasn’t very reassuring saying there wasn’t much interest or traction to get its to the floor of the Senate for a vote.
