New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown has a new ad targeting what the Republican calls the Democrats' "pro-amnesty policies." The 30-second spot, among the first in the 2014 cycle to address the illegal immigration crisis on the border, features the former Massachusetts senator juxtaposing the security lines at airports and public events with the lack of security at the Mexican border.

"We have an immigration crisis on our hands. We respond with compassion, but it's time for us to secure the border once and for all," Brown says. Watch the ad below:

Brown, who is leading the GOP Senate primary in New Hampshire, is running against incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen. Polls show Shaheen with a substantial lead over Brown, and Real Clear Politics says the race leans Democratic.
