Hillary Clinton is inviting -- and practically baiting -- Republican presidential contenders into a battle over immigration.

In her first Nevada campaign event on Tuesday afternoon, the Democratic front-runner accused the entire GOP field of seeking to relegate immigrants to "second-class status."

She promised to go further than President Barack Obama, whose unilateral moves to keep more undocumented immigrants in the United States have infuriated conservatives.

"I'm ready to have this discussion with anyone, anywhere, anytime," she said.'

Beginning Tuesday, May 5th, 2015 at 12pm EDT, entrants for the DV-2016 (Green Card lottery) can check at the U.S. State Department’s “Electronic Diversity Visa” Entrant Status Check (ESC) website to see if they won.

The following information is needed to check if your application won the lottery;

1. Confirmation Number that was given when applying

3. Year of Birth of the primary applicant

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will call on Tuesday for a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants during a campaign appearance in Nevada.

Despite outcry from illegal immigration watchdogs, a House committee on Wednesday easily approved legislation that would grant driving permits to North Carolina residents who are in the U.S. illegally.

House Bill 328 would create a "restricted ID" for the state for undocumented residents who undergo fingerprinting and background checks and prove their identity and state residence.

"This bill has nothing to do with immigration, immigration law or immigration reform," said sponsor Rep. Harry Warren, R-Rowan. "This is a bill about law enforcement and public safety."

He said the government has not "shown any credible reason" why the order needed to be set into action immediately.
