"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.

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.
