Progressive group targets Illinois Dem in tough primary over immigration

Source: The Hill

A major progressive group’s political action committee has launched a new digital ad that targets Rep. Dan Lipinski’s (D-Ill.) record on immigration issues.

MoveOn.org Political Action's five-figure ad buy, which was shared first with The Hill, features a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program criticizing Lipinski for voting against the Dream Act in 2010 and voting for border wall funding in 2006.

Egle Malinauskaite, who lives in Lipinski's district, calls on voters to support his primary challenger, marketing consultant Marie Newman, in the March 20 primary. The minute-long ad will target Latino voters in the Chicago-area district and will run on several social media platforms through the primary.

Last November, Lipinski said he’d support a DACA bill if it came up in the House. While discussing that he’s been working with lawmakers on a compromise that includes DACA and strengthened border security, he said he wouldn’t support a border wall, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
