Lou Dobbs Employed Illegal Immigrants

The immutable laws of universal karma dictated that this would happen: former CNN shouting head Lou Dobbs, America's most prominent anti-immigrant xenophobe, had illegal immigrants working for him.

It's all detailed in a big investigative piece from The Nation today. Run that nut graf, liberal media!

Based on a yearlong investigation, including interviews with five immigrants who worked without papers on his properties, The Nation and the Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute have found that Dobbs has relied for years on undocumented labor for the upkeep of his multimillion-dollar estates and the horses he keeps for his 22-year-old daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper.

Yes, raving anti-immigrant rhetorician Lou Dobbs,—who was able to afford that "sprawling white mansion on his 300-acre estate in Sussex, New Jersey" and that other multimillion-dollar West Palm Beach home and that horse farm with all those "five European Warmbloods, a breed that often fetches close to $1 million apiece" thanks to the America-first frenzy he inspired amongst his loyal fan base—had at least five undocumented workers tending his horses (at $500 per 65-hour week) and landscaping his yard for $8 or $9 an hour. Of course he did. Most rich people do.

At least Lou's already announced that he loves immigrants now. He'll just have to run for president as a Democrat.
