Romney Ad: 'Change Immigration'
Television viewers in Iowa and New Hampshire will start seeing another Mitt Romney ad today. "Change Immigration" introduces voters to his immigration reform proposals, and is bound to continue conversation about the controversial wedge issue.
Key soundbites: "As Governor, I authorized the state police to enforce immigration laws. I opposed driver's licenses and in-state tuition for illegal aliens," Romney says in the ad. "As President, I'll oppose amnesty, cut funding for sanctuary cities and secure our borders."
Some key buzz phrases of note: the opposition to driver's licenses for "illegal aliens" might remind some voters of Hillary Clinton's recent less-than-direct answer to a question about a proposed New York program to offer licenses to undocumented immigrants.
Romney also says he wants to cut funding for "sanctuary cities," or cities that don't strictly enforce immigration laws. The former governor has accused Rudy Giuliani of making New York City a sanctuary city during his two terms as mayor.
