We have been informed by several news outlets that the fleeing immigrants in Trump’s new ad were not from Mexico.  They were Moroccans.  PolitiFact did some investigating:

PolitiFact was able to trace the footage back to the Italian television network RepubblicaTV. On May 3, 2014, the network posted footage of migrants crossing the border into Melilla, one of two enclaves on the Moroccan coast that are held by Spain.

Nonsense on stilts.  We here at UP@NIGHT have located the original ad, which included footage not seen in the final cut.  It all happened right here in the USA.
