BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW TV AD ON IMMIGRATION CRISIS: "ROLL CALL"
MANCHESTER - Today, the Brown campaign released a new TV ad, titled: ”Roll Call.” The 15-second spot highlights a series of votes cast by Senator Jeanne Shaheen that have contributed to the immigration crisis at the southern border.
"It is time for us to secure the border and enforce the law," says Brown during the ad.
Brown pinpoints Shaheen's weak voting record and pro-amnesty policies that are encouraging people to cross the border illegally. Specifically, Senator Shaheen’s votes against construction of a border fence – one in 2009 and another in 2013 – as well as her 2010 vote for the DREAM Act to provide legal status to certain illegal immigrants.
Brown has a strong record opposing illegal immigration and working to secure the border. He voted against the DREAM Act, in support of a border fence and in favor of sending National Guard troops to help secure the border.
Background on Shaheen's Voting Record:
Shaheen Has Voted Against A Border Fence Twice. "An Amendment to require the
completion of at least 700 miles of reinforced fencing along the southwest border by December 31, 2010." (S. Amdt. 1399 To S. Amdt. 1373 To H.R. 2892, Roll Call Vote #220: Adopted 54-44, 7/8/09, Shaheen Voted Nay)
"An Amendment to require the completion of the 350 miles of reinforced, double-layered fencing described in section 102(b)(1)(A) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 before registered provisional immigrant status may be granted and to require the completion of 700 miles of such fencing before the status of registered provisional immigrants may be adjusted to permanent resident
status." (S.Amdt. 1197 To S. 744, Roll Call #151: Amendment Rejected 39-54-7, 6/18/13, Shaheen Voted Nay)
Shaheen Voted For The DREAM Act. "A bill to amend title 28, United States Code, to clarify and improve certain provisions relating to the removal of litigation against Federal officers or agencies to Federal courts, and for other purposes." (H.R. 5281, Roll Call Vote #278: Cloture Motion Rejected 55-41, 12/18/10, Shaheen Voted Yea)
Script for "Roll Call" (15 seconds):
Want to know why there is lawlessness on the border?
Ask Senator Shaheen.
She voted against border security twice.
And for amnesty.
It is time for us to secure the border and enforce the law.
I'm Scott Brown and I approve this message.
