Las Vegas Sun:

"The 60-second spot says in Spanish that Reid "blocked our leaders from working together" and blames Democrats for legislation that passed the Republican-controlled House that would make illegal immigrants subject to felony charges. "Reid's Democrat allies voted to treat millions of hardworking immigrants as felons," the ad says, "while President Bush and Republican leaders work for legislation that will protect our borders and honor our immigrants."

It was Sensenbrenner's House bill that would make it a federal crime to live in the United States illegally, and would turn illegal immigrants into felons- so it's just another dishonest ad by Mehlman and Co.
