Lou Dobbs and Undocumented Immigrants: It's Complicated

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Lou Dobbs made a name for himself on cable TV for railing against illegal immigrants and the businesses that hire them. But a new report in The Nation magazine raises questions about Dobbs' own ties to undocumented workers. According to the story, the former CNN anchor hired contractors who employed illegal immigrants to tend to his horse farm and his mansion.

Isabel Macdonald wrote that story for the magazine and details her reporting. We also speak with Roy Beck, president and founder of NumbersUSA, which advocates for reducing immigration into the U.S.
