Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) pushes assimilation by those immigrating to the United States in the first television ad from a super-PAC supporting his 2016 presidential bid.
"I am tired of hyphenated Americans," Jindal said in a recent speech highlighted in the ad from the group, Believe Again. "We're not Indian-Americans or African-Americans or Asian-Americans. We're all Americans."
"I think our immigration system is broken," Jindal said in another clip. "The folks who want to immigrate to America – they should do so legally, they should adopt our values, they should learn English and they should roll up their sleeves and get to work."
The video also includes photos of a young Jindal, whose parents immigrated from India to Baton Rouge, La., where he was born.
Jindal polls around 1 percent nationally and in the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire, where he has scheduled events in the days following his formal campaign announcement.
