Just curious... but do you have anything showing those claims were false? Voting record perhaps?

Reid is opposed to the AZ immigration law
Nevada does lead the nation in highest unemployment rate
Another amendment offered on May 25, 2006 during the immigration debate, this one by Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev. This amendment was designed to bar illegal immigrants applying for legal status from receiving "any tax refund for any taxable year prior to 2006, or to file any claim for the Earned Income Tax Credit, or any other tax credit otherwise allowable under the tax code."

The amendment passed, 50-47, with Reid -- and 11 Republicans -- voting against it.
The social security benefits were part of the amnesty bill.

You're missing the point. It's race-baiting and xenophobia.

The claim about "to give special tax breaks to illegal aliens." and "to give illegals Social Security benefits even for the time they were here illegally." were rated FALSE and BARELY TRUE by Politifact.

Face it, Angle plays fast and lose with the truth, just like Palin.

right... I keep forgetting. Anyone who is against 'illegal' immigration is a racist. Got it. How silly of me.

Boring. It is always the same thing.

Guy A: This is cleary racism.

Guy B: Oh, so supporting issue X makes me a racist?

The issue isn't racism, or issue X, it is propaganda meant to inspire a racial reaction in a group of people rather than explore the position truthfully and objectively. Does that make people who support issue X racist? No. Does that make the issue inspired by racism? No. But it does make the propaganda a load of crap and people could probably stop being so emotionally sensitive and acknowledge it.

My issue was./is.. the more things change, the more they stay the same.

If you don't vote for the Republic a black or brown person may take your job.

I don't think the ads were geared toward educated Republicans. No engineers or dentists are worried -- maybe their stay-at-home wives watching Fox and friends.
