BECAUSE REALLY, WHAT'S THANKSGIVING ABOUT..:
Parting Ways: Immigration Group Drops Dobbs (Mary Lu Carnevale, 12/03/09, WSJ)
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC yanked its support for Lou Dobbs today, shutting down Web sites that promoted a presidential bid by the former CNN anchor.
The reason: Dobbs, once an outspoken critic of illegal immigration, has shifted on that issue as he considers a run for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey in 2012 or, less likely, a presidential bid.
William Gheen, president of ALIPAC, which draws a hard line against illegal immigration, said in an interview that a lot of supporters were left in “shock and disbelief” by Dobb’s interview with Maria Celeste on Telemundo Nov. 20. “I spent my Thanksgiving dealing with the backlash from that interview,” he said.
