Several recent political ads from state candidates are saying they'll be tough on illegal immigrants.

Friday, a Tulsa group met to discuss what they call a growing anti-immigrant attitude in Oklahoma and in the US.

The American Dream Coalition in Tulsa says while they're for immigration reform, they say what we're seeing happen, isn't fair. Dr. Victor Orta, II: "Oologah our next door neighbor took action to penalize employers that was hiring immigrant workers and that's just the beginning. It's going to be like a domino effect and stunned at the situation we're not going to be silent."

Orta says his organization will soon begin working with other groups to educate the public on Hispanic viewpoints on immigration.
