“Latinos flourish in Trump economy” and “best economy in decades,” read the full-color advertisements. 

“President Trump is clear on immigration,” the ads said, “Millions have followed the law to come to America, new immigrants should too.”

They also said Trump is “standing up to tyrants in Cuba & Venezuela.”

A Trump campaign spokesperson also confirmed the ads in a statement to The Hill Wednesday, noting that they ran a day after the launch of the campaign's "Latinos for Trump" coalition.

"President Trump has a lot of accomplishments to share with Latinos from the historic low unemployment rates to his message of freedom and prosperity prevailing over socialism and government takeovers," the spokesperson said.

The ads were first reported by Politico.

A total of 20 people vying for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination will debate this week in Miami, with 10 appearing Wednesday evening and 10 appearing Thursday night.
