The ads say cheap foreign labor has made US tech workers seem "expensive, undeserving, and expendable." They advocate for laws requiring tech companies to hire US workers instead.

The campaign was paid for by Progressives for Immigration Reform, a DC-based group designated as "anti-immigrant " by the Southern Poverty Law Center (a civil rights nonprofit) in 2010.

Kevin Lynn, executive director at Progressives for Immigration Reform, said the campaign is about protecting US jobs. "The idea is to make immigration work for the citizens as a whole," said Lynn, whose mother immigrated to the US from Ireland in 1952. "That's what we've done for a long time, but it's not doing that now."
