MOBILE, Ala. – Jeff Sessions, candidate for the U.S. Senate from Alabama, today announced a new television ad called “Tuberville for Amnesty.” Just this past August in a speech, Tommy Tuberville voiced his support for immigration amnesty – “There are people coming across the border that need jobs… and we want them to come over here… Let em’ come in and become citizens like we all became citizens.” Tuberville even responded yesterday to his own transcript from the August speech as “fake news” on Twitter.
Jon Jones, campaign manager for Sessions, said, “Tuberville is claiming that his own words are ‘fake news.’ All of them? Tommy Tuberville needs to read the transcript. It is clear that Tuberville supports immigration amnesty, and he is attempting to trick Alabama voters to believe otherwise. In contrast, Jeff Sessions has done more than just say he wants to fix the border – he has already worked alongside President Trump to stop illegal immigration.”
The ad will start immediately and will be seen by Alabama voters statewide.
“TUBERVILLE IS FOR AMNESTY” AD TRANSCRIPT
ANNC: Tommy Tuberville’s playing dirty, lying about Jeff Sessions. It’s shameful.
Tuberville is trying to trick you, hiding his support for immigration amnesty.
TUBERVILLE: “There are people across the border that need jobs… and we want them to come over here.”
ANNC: But it gets worse:
TUBERVILLE: “Let em’ come in and become citizens like we all became citizens.”
ANNC: And Tuberville’s not even from Alabama, he’s a tourist here. He lives, pays taxes and even votes in Florida.
JEFF SESSIONS: I’m Jeff Sessions, and I approve this ad.
