Conservative Ad Criticizes Obama for Deportations

Hector Becerra, Los Angeles Times, August 8, 2012

Republican presidential candidates blasted the Obama administration during the primaries for not doing enough to combat illegal immigration. But a conservative group is launching a television ad in Nevada on Wednesday criticizing President Obama for deporting a record number of undocumented immigrants.

The $38,000 ad, which will run in the Las Vegas area — including on the top two Spanish-language TV stations — warns viewers: “Don’t let Obama fool you. He’s not committed to immigrants. He just wants your vote.”

It criticizes Obama for “offering our young undocumented a solution that is temporary” and does not resolve their legal status, and asks: “Why didn’t he push immigration reform like he promised us?”


The ad was produced by Nevada Hispanics, which is part of American Principles in Action, a conservative nonprofit.
