We’re guessing that the Becoming American Initiative assumes that Democrats, liberals, and MSNBC viewers are well aware that America is a nation of immigrants, so the organization is buying airtime on Fox News to remind Republicans and conservatives of that fact.

The ad even features the untouchable Ronald Reagan to solidify its conservative credentials. Reagan!

So why the ad directed at conservatives? According to the Becoming American Initiative website:

The modern day misconception is that conservatives do not care about immigrants or immigration reform. We exists [sic] to counter that narrative and provide the conservative case for immigration and DACA reform. We are a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. One of the best ways to counter illegal immigration is through legal immigration reform.

So … make an ad targeted toward conservatives to disabuse them of the misconception that conservatives don’t care about immigrants or immigration reform? Huh?
