New TV Ad Featuring President Reagan Lauds President Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration

Share This:

Today, Americans United for Change announced a new TV ad called ‘Leadership’ in support of President Obama’s executive action. The ad features former President Ronald Reagan who in 1986 exercised executive action to defer deportation of hundreds of thousands of undocumented workers.  As House Republicans have refused to take any action on immigration reform of their own or to vote on comprehensive bipartisan legislation passed in the Senate over 500 days ago, the ad concludes ‘When Congress refuses to act, Presidents must lead.’ ‘Leadership’ will begin airing on national cable news stations and the DC region as early as this weekend.
