A new John McCainJohn Sidney McCainOvernight Defense: Pompeo lays out new Iran terms | Pentagon hints at more aggressive posture against Iran | House, Senate move on defense bill Senate GOP urges Trump administration to work closely with Congress on NAFTA Sarah Sanders: ‘Democrats are losing their war against women in the Trump administration’ MORE ad backs offering a path to citizenship to illegal immigrants. In the ad, to air in Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico, McCain praises Hispanic citizens for serving in the U.S. military and enriching American culture.


The ad, which the campaign has entitled, "God's Children," tells viewers that a significant portion of U.S. veterans are Hispanic, and that Latin American immigrants "must come into country legally, but they have enriched our culture and our nation as every generation of immigrants before them."


McCain has recently promoted his stance on immigration, which is left of many in his party. McCain has touted a plan that "deal[s] practically and humanely with those who came here, as my distant ancestors did," providing a means for illegal immigrants to attain citizenship while also addressing issues of law enforcement and border security.


McCain has courted Hispanic voters aggressively as well: he has aired Spanish language radio ads in New Mexico, Nevada, Florida, all of which have significant Hispanic populations. One Spanish radio ad directly questioned Obama's commitment to Hispanic voters; another plugged free trade with Latin America.
