(CNN) – Some House Republicans who voted last week to end President Barack Obama's deportation rule will get hit with new Spanish language radio ads in their districts over the next week.
Spending five figures on the ad buy, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is targeting nine members who voted for an amendment that would defund a program that allows some young undocumented immigrants to defer deportation.
Last week's vote appeared to be a symbolic move, as the bill has little chance of going anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
The new radio ad criticizes the members for wanting to restart deportations for young people "who grew up in this country, worked hard, and are just looking for their chance to achieve the American Dream."
"Now, instead of celebrating the first anniversary of the deferred action program, our young DREAMers again face an uncertain future," the narrator says in the ad.
The president's decision, made last June, would allow people younger than 30 who came to the United States before the age of 16, pose no criminal or security threat, and were successful students or served in the military to apply for a two-year deferral from deportation.
This policy is a directive from the Department of Homeland Security, rather than an executive order from the president, though it could still be reversed by future presidents.
Last week's vote came as Congress works to tackle immigration reform. While the Senate starts debate on its comprehensive package this week, the House has been working to propose its own version, though its efforts seem to be on the rocks.
The ads will target:
Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado
Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas
Rep. John Kline of Minnesota
Rep. Joe Heck of Nevada
Rep. Buck McKeon of California
Rep. Gary Miller of California
Rep. Erik Paulsen of Minnesota
Rep. Steve Pearce of New Mexico
Rep. Frank Wolf Virginia
Responding to the ads, a spokeswoman for the National Republican Congressional Committee said Democrats were simply trying to "divide Americans."
“It’s disappointing but not surprising that Democrats would use an important issue like this to score political points and divide Americans. While everyone agrees we need a workable solution to this issue, Republicans don’t believe federal bureaucrats should be able to unilaterally determine which laws should be enforced, and which should not,” Andrea Bozek said.
