Is it Just Red, or is Ted Cruz’s New Ad Just Plain Weird?

Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) launched a new TV ad in New Hampshire featuring hordes of well-dressed “accountants and lawyers” invading the US across what is supposed to be the Rio Grand and a border fence (notably, no one is seen actually scaling the fence).  The focus of the ad is a claim that if the aforementioned hordes of accountants, lawyers and presumably other professionals were illegally crossing the border and driving down salaries for those occupations, then the swells would be up in arms about illegal immigration.  First, this presupposes that illegal immigration has actually suppressed wages and implies that GOP policies which have helped to keep real incomes flat ever since Reagan’s inauguration have nothing to do with the problem.  Second, it’s just plain weird.

    No, sir, it’s not just you. Yes, his ad plain weird (borderline strange). “Secure the border”?? “Build a wall”?? Huh?? Isn’t this the same crap Trump is talking about, too? I’m surprised he didn’t have the actors parachuting down over the wall during the end of the ad!
