Spanish language television network Univision is refusing to air a new political ad in Nevada for its controversial message to Latinos: "Don't vote." Univision says the ad is antithetical to its mission to promote civic engagement in the Latino community.
The spot was produced by a group called Latinos for Reform, which says that Democrats take Latino votes for granted and didn't use their majorities in Congress to address immigration reform. Critics, however, complain that Latinos for Reform's president, Robert de Posada, has long ties to the Republican party and is looking to hurt re-election chances for Nevada Sen. Harry Reid.
Robert de Posoda joins the program to respond to the criticism of the ad and discuss Latinos for Reform's next move.
