In May FWD.us began running ads the immigration bill pushed by the so-called Senate Gang of 8. Politico reports that Americans for a Conservative Direction will spend over $1 million to push the ad in states including Texas, Florida, Iowa, and Kentucky.

Another group running ads is the American Action Network. The American Action Network was founded by Fred Malek, National Finance Committee co-chair of John McCains 2008 presidential campaign. AAN created the American Action Forum and the Hispanic Leadership Network. These groups share office space with the Karl Rove affiliated Crossroads GPS/American Crossroads.
These groups have overlapping leadership and membership.

Good work, Ray76.
(They are) Open Borders GLOBALISTS! (per your post and links) The (D) and (R) doesn’t mean jack to these chucks.
I hear those ads from “Americans for a Conservative Direction” ALL DAY LONG. Here’s the funny part: The ads talk about nothing but “border security”, the tightest border security ever. No welfare, no food stamps, no Obamacare, and on and on... So what happens when Americans find out - - and most eventually WILL find out - - it was all a bunch of lies?
The backlash will be awesome.
Of course, I certainly hope that shortly before any vote is taken on amnesty, a genuine conservatibe group will flood the market with one brutal ad calling the bill a pack of lies and exposing it for what it is - - a complete fraud.
