Craig Romney has once again been tapped to speak on behalf of his father, the likely Republican candidate for president, Mitt Romney, in the campaign’s 9th Spanish-language ad.

Interestingly, Romney’s youngest son is lets viewers know his father is very proud of his Mexican heritage, even saying, “[My father] values that we’re a nation of immigrants. My grandfather, George, was born in Mexico. For my family, the greatness of the United States lies in how we respect and help one another, regardless of where we’re from.”

He adds that his father will “work towards a permanent solution to our immigration system with those on both sides of the aisle.”

With just 9, Romney has spent far less on Spanish-language ads than President Obama. The Republican presidential hopeful is using the ads in key swing states (Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, and Ohio) in hopes of nabbing the highly coveted Latino/Hispanic voters.

Watch the ad, titled “Pais de Inmigrantes” below.
