Donald Trump is touting the support of Jamiel Shaw, father of Jamiel “Jas” Shaw, Jr., a 17-year-old who was killed by an illegal immigrant, in a new ad set to air in South Carolina.

{mosads}The 30-second spot briefly recounts the 2008 murder before turning to the older Shaw praising Trump’s plan to end illegal immigration.

“Trump is the only one saying, you’re going to dealt with, we’re going to enforce that. We’re going to enforce that,” Shaw says in the ad. “That’s a beautiful thing.”

“I believe Donald Trump want to make us great again, and he loves America,” he adds.

Trump said his relationship with Shaw has given him motivation to end illegal immigration.

“A wonderful young man, Jamiel Shaw Jr., whose father has become a friend of mine, was shot in the face for no reason by an illegal immigrant,” Trump said in a statement accompanying the ad. 

“He was getting ready to go to college on a football scholarship and his sole fault was walking home to see his father,” he added.

“Because of the relationship I have established with his father, Jamiel’s death is very personal to me. We must stop illegal immigration.” 

The ad comes in advance of the Feb. 20 South Carolina primary.
