Scott Brown Ad Hits Shaheen on Border Crisis

Republican New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown released a new television ad Monday tying Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.) to the ongoing border crisis.

In the 30-second TV spot, Brown says the current debacle at the southern border—where thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America have crossed into the U.S. seeking refuge—is the result of "the pro-amnesty policies of President Obama and Senator Shaheen."

"Americans go through security before the go on a plane, enter a government building, or attend a ballgame, but folks who come here illegally—they just walk across the border," Brown says in the ad. "That’s wrong."

"Thanks to the pro-amnesty policies of President Obama and Senator Shaheen, we have an immigration crisis on our hands," the ad continues. "We respond with compassion, but it is time for us to secure the border once and for all and tell people who try to come here illegally that we intend to enforce the law."
