Editor’s note: Is the invasion by illegal aliens a nefarious plot? WND’s new hard-hitting issue of Whistleblower magazine titled “SECRETS OF THE INVASION” blows the lid off the conspiracy.

CNN’s Lou Dobbs

Outspoken CNN anchor Lou Dobbs is thrashing President Bush and senators for continuing to follow what he calls “absurd policies on both issues of border security and illegal immigration,” and asks the rhetorical question, “How dumb do you all think we are?”

The scathing remarks come amid this week’s report that U.S. officials are tipping off the Mexican government as to the positions of the Minutemen, private American citizens looking to stop the ongoing invasion of illegal aliens across the border.

“President Bush continues to push his guest-worker program and amnesty for anywhere between 11 million and 20 million illegal aliens, and he insists still that nothing less than what he calls comprehensive immigration reform is acceptable,” says Dobbs.

“And the lies keep coming from both political parties. This president is not enforcing the immigration laws enacted by Congress, and this Congress is failing in its duty of oversight to demand that those laws be followed. Only a fool, Mr. President, Sen. Kennedy, Sen. McCain, would believe you when you speak of new legislation. You don’t enforce the laws now. Would you do so if the law were more to your liking? Would you secure our borders and ports? Would you halt illegal immigration? Those are rhetorical questions, only, I assure you. The answers are obvious; obvious because of your conduct.”

Addressing the president, Dobbs says up to 3 million illegal aliens continue to cross our border with Mexico each year, with enforcement against illegal employers of illegal aliens in this country all but nonexistent.

“How do you explain that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have all but ended their investigations and inspections of employers that hire illegal aliens? Again, only a rhetorical question, because we all know the answer,” Dobbs said.

The CNN anchor goes on to state the “official record,” noting only 318 employers out of five and a half million in the U.S. have been fined for hiring illegals since 2001. In 2004, only three employers were fined.

“That is a dismal record, Mr. President, as dismal as the fact that the number of ICE agents assigned to enforce immigration laws in the workplace has declined from only 240 back in 1999 to now less than 100,” Dobbs said.

He lays blame for the lack of border security and illegal immigration squarely on the shoulders of “two political parties that are beholden to corporate America, the largest employers of illegal aliens, and the leadership of both parties that are selling out American citizens in search of cheap labor and political advantage. How dumb do you all think we are? Again, that’s only a rhetorical question.”

Dobbs says he’ll suggest on his television show in the coming days that “the leadership of both the Republican and Democratic parties begin to take some notice of our laws and our expectations that those laws be enforced,” as well as reminding them they represent all U.S. citizens, and not just corporate America and special interests.

Dobbs has been making headlines in recent weeks, coming under fire by groups not opposed to illegal immigration.

As WND reported, hosts on a leftist radio station in Los Angeles have sponsored a contest that will reward the first illegal alien who names his or her new baby after Dobbs.

Meanwhile, an “Ax AOL” campaign was organized last month by defenders of illegal aliens to target Dobbs.

“Why AOL?” asks one of the promoters of the campaign rhetorically. “Lou Dobbs is the number one money maker for CNN so he is not going anywhere as long as he makes money for CNN and right now he is making a ton of money for CNN bashing ‘illegal immigration.’ CNN is owned by Time Warner and Time Warner also owns AOL, which is being extensively promoted to increase its value as witnessed last week by selling 5 percent of AOL stock to Google. This 5 percent cost Google $1 billion setting a benchmark value for AOL stock. The Google-AOL deal gives AOL a valuation of $20 billion. Billionaire Time Warner shareholder Carl Icahn who controls 3 percent of Time Warner shares has been organizing a proxy battle for control of Time Warner wants to sell AOL.”
