As Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker prepares to officially kick off his presidential campaign, People For the American Way and Voces de la Frontera Action are launching a Spanish-language radio ad in Wisconsin challenging Walker’s anti-immigrant positions. The ad highlights Walker’s support for ending executive actions that protect DREAMers and families from deportation, his elimination of in-state tuition for DREAMers, and his funding cuts to public education.
“As Governor, Walker has shown time and time again that he’ll go after immigrant students and families to appeal to the anti-immigrant base of the Republican Party,” said Carlos A. Sanchez, Coordinator of Political Campaigns for People For the American Way. “Walker’s extreme record as governor and support for mass deportation policies make clear how dangerous a president he would be.”
