Immigration advocates bash GOP on TV

The Service Employees International Union, Mi Familia Vota Civic Participation Campaign, and America's Voice are launching Spanish-language radio ads today that bash the Republican party for opposing immigration reform. The $300,000 in ads will run in nine media markets across the country, including Miami and Orlando. SEIU is a major supporter of Democratic Senate nominee Kendrick Meek.

Here's the script:

What would you do if a group of politicians were denying your hopes, your dreams?

Thousands of us have taken to the streets to fight for what’s right: access to a college education and a path to citizenship…

We’re the undocumented students of the DREAM Act…the “soñadores”…

Without papers, and without fear, we fight so our generation doesn’t get left behind.

But who opposed this bill?  Who wants to quash our dreams?

Republicans. The same people who opposed the extension of unemployment benefits.

Republicans.  Who try to deny immigrant rights in Arizona and other states.

Republicans.  Who always seem to stand with big corporations against working families.

President Obama, the Armed Forces, Chambers of Commerce, universities and a majority of the public are on our side.

And they need our help.

This November 2nd, in Florida – vote for the candidates who support our families, and make our dreams come true.

A majority of the public on your side? Wow. Talk about clueless!


What a croc! I wonder if they remember that the author of the DREAM Act is a Republican (Lincoln Diaz-Balart). I wonder if they have noticed that with congressional majorities and the White House, the Democrats have not bothered ONCE to bring it up for a vote.
It's only a matter of time until the Hispanic community realizes once and for all that the left in this country is just manipulating them. Yes, the Republican party needs to get more serious about their immigration policies with regards to Hispanics, but for the Democrats to claim that they are doing anything at all aside from paying lip service is really disingenuous and cruel.
