Ad criticized by Latinos disappears from Democratic web site

(AP): Democrats dropped an ad that Latinos had criticized as unfairly depicting undocumented immigrants as terrorists.

The ad had disappeared from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s Web site August 16, 2006. A link that had led to the advertisement now leads to a different ad.

No announcement was made about what happened to the ad. A DSCC spokesman did not return phone calls and an e-mail message seeking comment.

Both Democratic and Republican Latinos had complained Wednesday about the ad. The 35-second ad questioned Republican homeland security and anti-terrorism policies. It featured images of Osama bin Laden and North Korea's Kim Jong Il and two people scaling a border fence and the words “Feel Safer?”

Houston City Councilwoman Carol Alvarado, a Democrat, was among those who asked the DSCC to pull the ad. She said it could alienate Latino voters. The Republican National Hispanic Assembly and Latino groups also criticized the ad.
