LAS VEGAS (AP) — In the heavily-Hispanic neighborhoods of Las Vegas, unemployment is high and home values are down.

But President Barack Obama’s immigration stand has locked in support from a fast-growing demographic group that has been trending sharply Democratic in the wake of increasingly hard-line Republican positions on immigration.

Part of the reason is his executive order that allows people brought into the country illegally as children to avoid deportation if they graduate high school or join the military.

The president’s campaign is counting on Hispanics providing the margin of victory not just in Nevada, but in other swing states such as Colorado, Iowa, Virginia and North Carolina
