PB Post: Ad war over immigration bill heats up

Ad war over immigration bill heats up

BY JOHN LANTIGUA - PALM BEACH POST STAFF WRITER

Post

The YouTube cartoon stars U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, but he is depicted with a Pinocchio nose.

The video is entitled “Amnesty Man” and was posted by Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, or FLIMEN, a group that opposes the Senate immigration reform bill Rubio co-wrote. It accuses him of providing amnesty for 11 million undocumented persons in the United States by allowing them to apply for legalization without leaving the U.S.

The group says that Rubio, during his 2010 Senate campaign, promised to oppose “blanket amnesty” legislation and they are saying that turned out to be a lie. Hence the long nose.

Rubio also has been cast as a hero for his support of immigration reform in other national television ads, including one produced by Americans for a Conservative Direction, founded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. That ad, which began running on the Fox network in late April, is aimed at conservatives and emphasizes the toughness of the bill.
