PAC+ Releases Hard-Hitting Ad in Arizona Against Romney’s Immigration Stance

by Mahwish Khan on 05/25/2012

PAC+ has recently released a series of hard-hitting videos in Arizona against Mitt Romney.

The group is a super PAC whose welcome page on their website relates the story of America as one of diversity and struggle, calling it “the best of the American story.”

The video, which was picked up by Emily Schultheis in Politico today, hits upon Romney’s extreme anti-immigrant stance, and outright states that Romney is “too extreme” for Arizona.

The text “While we study and work hard, Romney builds walls” flashes as video of endorsements for the GOP nominee from his friends Governor Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio are spliced into the advertisement.

Watch:

Along with Joe Arpaio and Jan Brewer, other anti-immigrants to have his back include author of “papers, please” legislation, Kris Kobach, and former Governor of California, Pete Wilson, who championed Proposition 187 – legislation which would have kept undocumented immigrants from enrolling in public school or using other public services. Mitt Romney has also formerly said he’d veto the DREAM Act, while earlier this week, the GOP candidate ignored immigration entirely as he was addressing the Latino Coalition in Washington.

A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll showed that Romney trails behind Obama by 34 points among registered Latino voters, and it’s little wonder why.
