Spare us, would you have ever reported a "Dupe thread" for the million "Obama is a socialist" rants that you take part in here on a daily basis? Of course you wouldn't.

Get with the times. Lou Dobbs had turned pro-illegal a couple of years ago.

I am against illegal immigration and I had a house full of them when I had granit countertops installed. I hired a licensed comany here that did lots of advertising, spoke with the representative and when installation day arrived I had 6 people who could not speak a word of English tearing up my house. I am assuming they are illegal but again how can you tell without questioning them and I am sure Dobbs probably found himself in the same delima. You hire people and especially before EVerify was even a pipe dream, you just don't know do you? I think we are all guilty of this to some extent.

I have a freind that works for a House-leveling company, she said that about 5 guys quit and the supervisior went down to the local day labor joint and hired on 6-7 guys. paid them cash...do you think he checked for documents?

happens all the time. Lou Dobbs didnt go down and hire his guys, he had a contractor, that hired sub-contractors...which hired their guys. Thats American business, even if Lou is opposed.

Probably not but who's really at fault here?

Dobbs is not guilty of anything if he went through a contractor.

Doesn't surprise me. See also: Meg Whitman, Mitt Romney, etc...

Just like conservatives who are the most anti-gay, are the ones who end up being closeted homosexuals themselves. Go figure.

Nothing like negative stereotyping, right?
