Lou Dobbs Cannot Deliver Amnesty
by

In light of my Lou Dobbs story from the February issue, I meant to comment on Dobbs’s little immigration summit with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Some people seem to think that having Dobbs on board will make it easier for Congress to pass amnesty, which now has failed under both Republican and Democratic domination in Washington. But whatever credibility Dobbs has on the issue comes from his reputation as an unstinting foe of illegal immigration. The old Lou Dobbs could have convinced people that the enforcement provisions in a “comprehensive” bill were serious. But if Dobbs is seen as wobbling on the issue — or, as Schumer puts it, Dobbs “is changing his views on immigration” — it will be a no-go.
