A political group co-founded by actress Eva Longoria is taking aim at Donald Trump and other Republican presidential candidates for controversial statements about Latino immigrants.
The ad by the Latino Victory Project seizes on actual quotes from Republican candidates, such as Trump’s characterization of Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and “criminals,” and urges Latinos to register and vote in the 2016 election.
“This is hate,” one actor says of the comments. “If we don’t stand up, who will?”
The problem, this video is taken sound clips and pieced them together to provide a false narrative to push her agenda. Republicans have been speaking about ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Illegal aliens who come into this country with no respect for the law and have committed crimes not seeking to go home.
The campaign is a modest one. The group plans to spend about $50,000 to run television and digital ads in Nevada and Colorado, two general-election swing states with considerable Latino populations.
“Our community has the power to decide the election, and we need to make sure that our voices are heard so that our leaders reflect our values,” Cristóbal Alex, the group’s president, said in a statement.
The ads, which will appear in English and Spanish, will start Sunday and run through Thursday.
There was heightened interest in the ad’s sponsor after The Washington Post obtained details of a casting call for Latino actors for a mysterious anti-Trump commercial.
The final ad also hits former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Here’s the English version:
