Lou Dobbs on illegal immigration. . .

I don't want to totally condemn Lou Dobbs because he has been a voice against the shipping of jobs overseas and also has spoken out through his show and written books about the destruction of the middle class form corporate actions, but geez, this guy can really sound like a bigot when he gets on his favorite topic of illegal immigration. He rants a rallys about it as if infected hoards of rodents are invading our shores with a plaque.
So when I read this I just had to shake my head and realize that he's just another right wing uber rich conservative who will say whatever it takes to distract the masses from opening their eyes to the greed that prevails in our country.
How many more of these hypocrites will have to be caught benefiting from that which they condemn.

Report: Lou Dobbs employed illegal immigrants
By Michael Calderone

Lou Dobbs has long railed against illegal immigration and the employers who hire undocumented workers. Dobbs generated controversy — and faced boycotts — for attacking "illegal aliens" as host of a nightly CNN show. And since leaving the network in December, Dobbs has kept talking about the issue in interviews, in which he's also left open the possibility of running for senator or president.

But Dobbs might want to pause before making illegal immigration a signature campaign issue: At least five illegal immigrants have reportedly worked on his properties.

The liberal Nation magazine, in a yearlong investigation conducted with the Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute, found that "Dobbs has relied for years on undocumented labor for the upkeep of his multimillion-dollar estates and the horses he keeps for his 22-year-old daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper."

300 acre farm in NJ, winter home in West Palm Beach, Five $1 million dollar horses. . . yea, he's looking out for YOUR interests.
People like this don't have a clue what YOUR interests are if you are working for a living.
