TV Ad Highlights President Reagan's Views on Immigration


Days ahead of the second GOP primary debate at the Ronald Reagan library, the National Immigration Forum Action Fund has launched a national ad campaign.  The television advertisement juxtaposes President Reagan’s vision of America as a “shining city upon a hill” and Donald Trump’s endorsement of mass deportation and wall-building, as well as Gov. Scott Walker’s and Sen. Ted Cruz’s calls to repeal birthright citizenship.   The ad is airing nationally and includes focused buys in Washington, D.C.

President Reagan, among other things, signed into law the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which provided amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants and bolstered immigration enforcement.  IRCA, which included increased enforcement provisions and guest worker programs, was the last major piece of comprehensive immigration reform passed by Congress.
