It's really pathetic that after all your vague claims to Dobbs having anti-immigrant tendencies, this is all that you can come up with. Lou is on TV 5-days of the week, 365 days of the year speaking on cons of illegal immigration, yet all you have is a questionable attibution on leprosy. If that's all there you have on him, I suggest that his record on veracity is better than yours.
