Lou Dobbs Biography

Anchor and Managing Editor for Cable News Network (CNN)'s Lou Dobbs Tonight
Pro to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"

“I think the essence of the legislation of 2007 is right: pay a fine, learn English, commit to assimilation in the United States, and begin a path to citizenship.”

Andrea Nill Sanchez, “A Self-Described ‘Wiser Lou Dobbs’ Supports Legalizing Undocumented Immigrants,”, Jan. 8, 2010
