New offensive to stop illegal immigration

A new offensive to stop the flood of children crossing illegally into the country.

U.S. officials are launching a major Spanish-language ad campaign warning people of the dangers of coming here illegally.
   
The ads target immigrant families on *both* sides of the border.
They show a young teen saying good bye to his parents and heading to America.
   
Only to be found a victim of the dangerous journey.
They hope the ads will discourage immigrants in the U.S. from encouraging family members to cross.

Spanish Ad
"If you cross illegally into the United States you're putting yourself and your children in grave danger."

About 6500 announcements will run on television and radio, and messages will be placed on billboards at the border as well.
