Behind the Ad: AFL-CIO weighs in on immigration reform

By Richard K. Barry


Where: Atlanta; Bakersfield; Denver: Orlando (in Spanish) and Metropolitan Washington, D.C. (in English)

What's going on: The AFL-CIO is launching a bilingual ad campaign to encourage Republicans to pass immigration reform and to draw attention to hostile statements some Republicans have made about Latino immigrants.

From the AFL-CIO Now website:
The Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill in June, and last month a House bill patterned on the bipartisan Senate measure was introduced. But House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other Republican leaders have indicated they will not allow a vote on a comprehensive immigration reform bill with a road map to citizenship.
