A mailer targets Democratic Senate candidate Kay Hagan on immigration.
The mailer, paid for by the state Republican Party on behalf of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole's campaign, shows a picture of two Border Patrol agents frisking a man wearing suspenders and jeans.
"Liberal Kay Hagan Gave Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants," it says.
Inside, the mailer argues that Hagan "blocked real illegal immigration reform in the State Senate" for nearly six years and "voted to allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses and joined other politicians to help kill tougher restrictions."
As noted previously, Senate Democrats sent legislation to toughen license standards to die in committee for several years. Though Hagan later voted to tighten standards and later for a total ban, it is fair to say that she blocked stronger efforts.
It's a little misleading to say that Hagan "gave driver's licenses" since they could already get them, but she did fail to take them away.
