Lou Dobbs Biography

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

“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.”
