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.
