Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s first general election campaign ad focuses squarely on security and claims Hillary Clinton’s immigration policies are “rigged” against the American voter.
The 30-second ad titled “Two Americas: Immigration,” is set to air in the four battleground states — Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida — according to The Hill.

“In Hillary Clinton’s America, the system stays rigged against Americans,” the narrator says in the video released Friday.
“Syrian refugees flood in. Illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay. Collecting Social Security benefits, skipping the line. Our border open. It’s more of the same, but worse,” the ad continues.
In contrast, “Donald Trump’s America is secure,” the narrator says. “Terrorists and criminals kept out. The border secure, our families safe.”
There was positive feedback on social media in response to the ad’s release.
