Giuliani is touting his immigration plan in a new ad.
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) - Rudy Giuliani debuted a new ad Thursday designed to assure primary voters in the Granite State that he will be tough on illegal immigration.
In the 30-second spot, which comes less than a month before New Hampshire voters head to the polls, Giuliani says that it is possible to "end illegal immigration." He lays out his immigration plan, which involves completing a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border, providing new training for the border patrol, and creating a tamper-proof national I.D. card.
Once immigrants attain citizenship, adds Giuliani, they will have to "read English, write English, speak English and understand American civics."
Giuliani's ad launch comes a few days after a CNN/WMUR poll that puts him tied for second place with Arizona Sen. John McCain in New Hampshire, behind frontrunner Mitt Romney.
