LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton says the key to fixing the nation's economy is to address the struggling housing market and foreclosures.

Clinton, in a speech Saturday night at the Las Vegas Anti-Defamation League's annual American Heritage Dinner, said "it's as simple" as fixing the mortgage business, cleaning up banks' books and letting "them start loaning again."

The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/xxJc0J ) he drew the biggest applause of the night when he addressed the issue of immigration, and the value immigrants add to the country.

Clinton urged the crowd to keep up the fight against intolerance, racism and bigotry, and stressed the importance of not letting differences lead to hate.

Among those in attendance was Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley of Nevada, who's challenging Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller.
