New Spanish-language radio ads will run in Coffman and Tipton’s Districts urging them to reject the extremists in their party and pass reform with a roadmap to citizenship
DENVER – On the heels of a bipartisan immigration bill passing overwhelmingly through the Senate and in anticipation of a House Republican gathering to discuss immigration reform, this week the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) continued its multi-pronged media, legislative and field campaign to win commonsense immigration reform with the launch of new Spanish-language radio ads, focused on 10 key House Republicans in districts with significant Latino voter populations to act in support of smart and fair immigration legislation with a roadmap to citizenship.
As part of SEIU’s multi-million dollar campaign for immigration reform, the $200,000 radio ad buy, “Where Do You Stand,” will run in the congressional districts ofRepresentatives Mike Coffman (CO-06), Scott Tipton (CO-03), Jeff Denham (CA-10), David Valadao (CA-21), Gary Miller (CA-31), Howard McKeon (CA-25), Daniel Webster (FL-10), Joe Heck (NV-03), Mark Amodei (NV-02) and Randy Weber (TX-14).
Each of the Spanish-language radio ads calls on these members of Congress, respectively, to “reject the extremists in his party and support immigration reform with a path to citizenship.” The ads showcase the anti-immigrant rhetoric of Congressmen Paul Broun of Georgia and Randy Weber of Texas.
All the ads will air for the remainder of the week.
“This ad campaign sends a clear message to Representatives Coffman and Tipton that they can’t and we certainly won’t allow them to ignore the mainstream call for commonsense immigration reform,” stated Carmen Walters, SEIU Local 105 member and a constituent in Coffman’s district. “We will continue to carry the message for as long as it takes to Representative Coffman until he understands that the majority of voters in his district believe that immigration reform, which includes a pathway to citizenship, must be passed this year.”
Carmen Walters and other CD 6 constituents and members of SEIU Local 105 have been collecting postcards in support of immigration reform throughout Representative Coffman’s district. In the past month, over 4,000 postcards have been collected by SEIU and partner organization Mi Familia Vota. The postcards will be delivered tomorrow Tuesday, June 9th to Representative Coffman’s district office in Aurora.
