Democrat hopeful to U.S. Senate promises path to citizenship to undocumented immigrants to Texan voters

One of the two Democrat candidates to the U.S. Senate in Texas has promised a path to legal status to undocumented immigrants through a new TV ad, reports the Texas Tribune.

Grady Yarbrough seeks to replace Republican U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison in the November elections.

In his second television ad of his campaign, Yarbrough advocates for the passage of the DREAM Act, strengthen border security, and grant citizenship to undocumented immigrants who have been in the U.S. for at least seven years and have no criminal background. See his ad here:
