Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has a new ad out this week that depicts a flood of white-collar workers storming into the US in order to demonstrate the economics of immigration.

The ad featured a Cruz line from a presidential debate last November, in which the Republican candidate claimed that the discussion of illegal immigration would be "different" if bankers, lawyers, and reporters were seeing their wages driven down instead of the industries that are currently affected.

"I can tell you, it's a very personal economic issue. And I will say the politics of it would be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the Rio Grande," Cruz narrated in the ad as a bunch of men in suits comically cross the US' southern border.

"Or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press," he continued. "Then we would see stories about the economic calamity that is befalling our nation."

The ad debuted Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," which reported that it is running in New Hampshire.
