American Crossroads is launching a digital ad titled "Hillary's Wall" that attempts to tie some of Clinton's harsher past remarks about immigration to those of Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpStates slashed 4,400 environmental agency jobs in past decade: study Biden hammers Trump over video of world leaders mocking him Iran building hidden arsenal of short-range ballistic missiles in Iraq: report MORE, the current Republican front-runner.

In one scene in the commercial, influential Univision anchor Jorge Ramos asks Clinton, "What's the difference between your idea and Donald Trump's idea on building a wall?"

Preceding that moment are clips - all subtitled in Spanish - that show Clinton making tough comments about immigration that could now alienate large sections of the Democratic base.

Near the beginning of the 30-second spot, which targets likely Nevada Democrat caucus goers and Latinos under a $42,000 buy, is footage of Clinton saying, "I have voted numerous times to build a barrier." Immediately following that clip is one of Trump saying, "We need to build a wall."

The ad closes with a photograph of Clinton grinning during a conversation with Trump in a social setting.

“Despite her shameless pandering to get to the left of Bernie SandersBernie SandersGabbard moves to New Hampshire ahead of primary Sanders to join youth climate strikers in Iowa Saagar Enjeti unpacks why Kamala Harris's campaign didn't work MORE, it wasn’t that long ago that Hillary Clinton sounded just like Donald Trump on the subject of illegal immigrants,” said American Crossroads spokesman Ian Prior.

Clinton's campaign did not immediately comment, but her allies have previously highlighted the super-PAC's attack ads as evidence that Republicans are doing whatever they can to avoid facing Clinton in a general election. Crossroads also ran ads attacking the former secretary of State in Iowa, forcing Clinton's super-PAC, Priorities USA, to air ads defending her.
