The LIBRE Initiative, a conservative organization focused on Hispanic outreach, launched a television ad for Spanish television stations in the Orlando market during this last week before the election, with a simple yet powerful message:
This ad features a Puerto Rican man, who is frustrated with the economy but is confident that he can make a difference with his vote.
Translation of the ad:
I never intended to leave Puerto Rico, but I couldn't find work over there. Coming to the United States seemed like the light at the end of the tunnel. Now, I suffer the same fate here that I thought I had left behind at home.
I haven’t been able to find full-time employment, I get by with a little job here and there. [Text on screen says "Hispanic unemployment rate in Orlando is 12%"]
Politicians tell me to get help from the government, but I prefer to work. [Text on screen says "46 million people are receiving food stamps"]
Luckily, in this country, I can change the situation with my vote.The ad ends with a narrator declaring:
"Este noviembre, vota y se libre."
“This November, vote and be free.”
