Is Lou Dobbs finally speaking for us?
 
http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/05/01/Dobbs.May2/index.html

What a spectacle, what a mess. What a day for thousands and thousands of illegal aliens and their supporters to march through the streets of many of our biggest cities demanding amnesty for illegally entering the country.

Tuesday was given over to illegal aliens and their supporters to demand forgiveness for using fraudulent documents and assisting others in entering this country illegally. What a day for illegal aliens and their supporters to demand not only amnesty but also the end to immigration raids and an end to deportations.

May Day was a peculiar choice for those demonstrations, a day in many countries in which international socialism is celebrated and a reminder of those old Soviet Union military parades.

It was also an unfortunate and ironic choice on the part of the organizers of the demonstrations. May 1 in the United States is actually Law Day, a day first established by President Eisenhower in 1958 and ultimately codified into law in 1961 at the beginning of John F. Kennedy's administration. The purpose of Law Day is to give all Americans an opportunity to reflect on our legal heritage, and by statute, encourages "the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life."

I'll bet you know about the illegal alien amnesty marches, but I don't know of a single news organization, electronic or print that pointed out that May 1 is America's Law Day. The cable news networks gave almost wall-to-wall coverage to the illegal alien demonstrations, but they apparently couldn't find any American celebrating Law Day.

And no one seems to want to take note that we are first a nation of laws, and that without those laws and their enforcement, the foundation of our great republic turns to sand. What a spectacle on Law Day for demonstrators to demand amnesty for those who broke the law to enter our country, many of whom also broke the law with fraudulent documents.

And what a mess when the president of the United States and the U.S. Congress are pandering to a group of people who are not citizens and refuse to demand enforcement of our immigration laws, our criminal laws, and fails to secure our borders and ports.

I couldn't help but wonder as I watched monitors bringing images of the marches and demonstrations from all across the country, who should really be protesting on May Day. What about the millions of legal residents who followed the long, drawn-out process to secure a visa to enter the United States lawfully? Maybe they should be protesting. What about the seven-figure backlog at the Citizenship and Immigration Services agency of people who are following the rules. Should they demonstrate?
What about all of our fellow Americans who are being marginalized by the massive importation of illegal, low-cost and mostly uneducated labor into this country? Perhaps those citizens should take to the streets. And what about the more than 250 million Americans who make up our middle class and those who aspire to it whose wages have stagnated and who are paying for the social, medical and economic costs of illegal immigration? That's a big march.

If yesterday's demonstrators and their supporters in Congress and corporate America are serious about their deep desire for American citizenship, why don't we hear any of them clearly say they're willing to give up dual citizenship? Or that they're willing to learn English and surrender demands of bilingual education? Or declare they embrace English as our official national language? Or demand that illegal employers of illegal aliens pay for the social, educational and medical costs now borne by the taxpayers?

Yesterday was Law Day. I hope that we celebrate Law Day with a great national enthusiasm next May 1. I guarantee you I'll march in that demonstration.

Quick question
 
Quick question to miamivice.

No offense mean and you may choose not to answer but does being hispanic mean supporting those who break the law? Supporting your community is wonderful and shows unity but is 'blind support' good?
Does Mexico treat its illegal aliens as humanely as you think?

No! He is not speaking for us. He is just doing this to make illegal immigrants look bad. Tomorrow he will do the same thing to legal immigrants. He does not speak for anyone, although he shows himself as representative of middle class american people.

Law of nature always overcome laws created by humans
 
Guys,

Geographical boundaries can not be interrupted by laws of nations. They can only be controlled. None of the " illegal" has snatched his / her job on gun point !!!!

They need to be treated better

why do even have a thread dedicated to Lou?
I think the mod's ought to close and ban the word Lou on this site....

His reporting on H1 and our issues is baseless and meaningless! The mere fact that he considers H1B workers as potential liability to this economy is a testimony of his own stupidity! :rolleyes:

Every other person on the site site starts a new thread on Lou and everyone else is more than happy to talk about him and spend their time on such threads. We need help from members on various IV action items.

So this thread is now a sticky for anyone who wants to spend their time on this topic.

I would never visit this thread again.

I personally think he is not sincere about the legal immigration as well.

Stuckinmuchk answer to you
 
Well i said about hispanic cause Rick Sanchez is Hispanic and he try to confront Lou Doub but as usual he does not let the guest to finish the arguments, it does not matter if i am hispanic,asian but i know for sure the i am stuck on an immigration process, if is about braking the law you probably have broken the law once in your life too, speeding ticket or minor offense but well this is not the case, the case is that you will not mow the lawn, pick the tomatoes, or produce the trees for your gardens, and if you say heck yes, i bet you will not want to pay the right price if you work on it. but any ways i am writing for myself no for any organization at all, i dont belong to any because when is about politics and religion no one will agree, and the immigration thing has been turn to political.

CNN takes down Lou Dobbs Web site link
 
NEW YORK - Following a protest, CNN has removed a link from its Web site to an organization that is raising money to fight illegal immigration.

The link to smalltowndefenders.com was included on Lou Dobbs' home page. Dobbs has used his early evening show as a platform to protest illegal immigration, and he's being profiled Sunday on "60 Minutes" about this fight.

An advocacy group, the National Institute for Latino Policy, protested that Dobbs' on-air advocacy was expanding to include an endorsement of raising money for an organization.

After getting a letter from the group, CNN chief executive Jim Walton agreed to remove the link, CNN spokeswoman Christa Robinson said Friday

Just a thought, can we rope in Thomas Friendman and Sheela Murthy to engage Lou? Do you remember that Rahul Bose movie Shaurya? Just as KK Menon had life changing experience that sowed the seed of hatred, does Lou also have something similar? Or may be Lou probably needs some tacos and butter chicken.
Can we leverage CNN-IBN to address Lou?

Lou Dobbs is a bastard, I don't plan to start a new thread or talk about this bastard. I wish he will born as my dog in his next life.

Mr.Lou Dobbs s**k my d***.

Media generates publicity by twisting a small fraction of reality. Imagine what Lou would say if he gets a unanimous vote against amnesty. I am sure he will make the best of it to promote negativism towards any relief efforts regardless of it being amnesty or retrogression relief. Please go to the URL below and cast your support vote!

Question: Do you believe Congress should first demand that our borders and ports be secured before taking up immigration reform?

CNN Network Refuses Dobbs' Promotion of Birther Conspiracies Ad
 
This is what makes this country so great, nobody is above justice.

CNN Running Scared: Network Refuses to Air Media Matters ' Ad Calling for Accountability for Dobbs' Promotion of Birther Conspiracies | Media Matters for America

CNN Running Scared: Network Refuses to Air Media Matters' Ad Calling for Accountability for Dobbs' Promotion of Birther Conspiracies

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
CONTACT: Jess Levin (202) 772-8162 / jlevin@mediamatters.org

Washington, D.C. -- Today, Media Matters for America responded to the news that CNN has refused to air a Media Matters ad calling on the network to credibly address Lou Dobbs' continued promotion of birther conspiracy theories. A CNN spokesperson reportedly told the Politico, "CNN retains the right to object to any ad run by the cable operator on our network whose purpose is to attack CNN or our employees."

Watch "CNN's Dobbs Problem": Dobbs Conspiracy.

"This seems like the actions of a network desperate to provide cover for its primetime host rather than living up to its standard of being the most trusted name in news," said Eric Burns, president of Media Matters. "If the ad is accurate -- and we know that it is -- then there is no reason for CNN to block it from its airwaves."
