Heinous Political Ad in Wisconsin

I also posted this on Conglomerate because of the Wisconsin aspect, but I thought PrawfsBlawg readers would also be interested in this ad.  The ad, sponsored by the Coalition for American Families, aired this week in Wisconsin.  The ad attacks Gov. Doyle and his plan to allow some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition in the UW system. 

If you want to make the argument that in an environment of scarce resources, we have to make difficult choices and that we don't have the resources to subsidize the education of illegal immigrants, then that's fine.  But don't hire a Latina to complain about how this subsidy isn't fair because

We followed the rules.  We became citizens.  We work hard to save money so our daughter will be the first one in our family to go to college.  We shouldn't have to pay more taxes to fund illegal aliens.  It's hard enough to save the money to send our own children to college.

I'm sure that most immigrants applying to college would like to follow the rules and become citizens. Nice way to encourage people to pull up the ladder.
