Immigration advocates and students who might get a chance to stay in the U.S. if the Dream Act passes, today will announce a "six-figure" ad buy in Spanish and English media in several states, including Florida.
The ads will target senators whose votes, they say, "could be crucial to passing the Dream Act." That's likely to be George LeMieux, who has voted against the measure in the past and has said he won't vote for it until more is done to secure the border. Students last week protested at his office.
Democrat Bill Nelson is a co-sponsor of the legislation which would give students and military service members in the country illegally a chance to stay legally.
