Lou Dobbs Alienates Immigration Hardliners

EFE, Hispanic Business, Posted: Dec 04, 2009

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--An anti-illegal immigration organization based in North Carolina withdrew its support for Lou Dobbs' presidential candidacy this week after the former CNN host called for "legalizing illegal immigrants on certain conditions" during an interview with Telemundo. Americans for Legal Immigration PAC dumped two Web sites that had encouraged Dobbs to run for president, reports Spanish news service EFE.

Although Dobbs' comments about undocumented immigrants earned him many enemies over the years, they also lifted his standing in the eyes of immigration hard-liners, reports Hispanic Business. Now, by appealing to the middle, Dobbs may ironically alienate everyone.

"Mr. Dobbs claims his positions have not changed. However, that is not the perception of many of our mutual supporters," William Gheen of ALIPAC said in a statement. "His recent comments on Telemundo and his national radio show supporting some kind of path to citizenship for illegal immigrants is inconsistent with positions of ALIPAC and the views of most American citizens."
