Most Democrats and moderate Republicans would like to be called "pro immigration," but that's the centerpiece of a new Donald Trump attack ad against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas (video below).

Trump, who is running for the GOP presidential nomination against Cruz, among others, included parts of an interview that Cruz did with Fox News in December 2015 in the commercial, released Jan. 22.

Cruz stumbles while trying to explain his past stances on undocumented immigration, notes NBC News.

The ad also shows Trump blaming undocumented immigrants for crime and problems in the economy:

"We don't have a country right now. We have people pouring in, they're pouring in and they're doing tremendous damage. If you look at the crime, if you look at the economy.

"We want to have borders. To have a country, you have to have borders. We don't have borders right now."

Trump's ad will air in the first three states holding primaries: Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Cruz released his own ad slamming the billionaire reality TV star for supporting "eminent domain."

The ad calls it a "fancy term for politicians seizing private property to enrich the fat cats who bankroll them, like Trump."

The commercial shows Trump saying, "I think eminent domain is wonderful," and accuses him of colluding with New Jersey state officials to bulldoze an elderly widow's home to build a parking lot for one of his casinos.

The ad ends with: "Trump won't change the system, he's what's wrong with it."
