Immigrant rights advocates are ripping a pair of provocative campaign ads from Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jim Oberweis as racist and fallacious.

"Illegal aliens are coming here to take American workers' jobs, drive down wages and take advantage of government benefits such as free health care, and you pay," the wealthy dairy operator says in one of the spots.

"How many? Ten thousand illegal aliens a day. Enough to fill Soldier Field every single week." (Soldier Field is the stadium where the Chicago Bears play.)...


The pastor of the Denver church is being repudiated by the state's Council of Churches. The Senate candidate is trailing a wealthy rival for the GOP nomination, though he was leading a few months ago.
