Romney re-released an ad focusing on illegal immigration.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Less than two weeks before Iowa's straw poll, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has re-released an ad focusing on the contentious issue of illegal immigration.
"People who are here illegally are going to have to get in line with everyone else, with no special pathways to become a citizen," Romney says in the ad. "Legal immigration is great, but illegal immigration, that we've got to end."
In the ad, Romney criticizes employers that hire illegal immigrants, and calls for a federal database that lists the names of legal workers.
The ad, which originally aired in a longer format in May, has been trimmed down to 30 seconds. It hit Iowa's airwaves on Tuesday.
