LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
It was no surprise that immigration reform was Vice President Joe Biden's focus as he delivered the keynote address Thursday at the national convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) at Caesars Palace.
Biden told the crowd, much of which was young, that they must get involved for change to occur.
"We've been in many fights before, and this is the fight of our lives," Biden said.
The LULAC speech was the first of two slated for Biden in Las Vegas in a two-day span.
On Friday, the vice president will address the meeting of The United States Conference of Mayors at Mandalay Bay.
Nearly 200 mayors will attend the meeting, which begins Friday and ends Monday. Economics, immigration, school safety, municipal bonds and housing and help for returning veterans are among the topics to be discussed at this meeting.
