Lou Dobbs: ‘Send ’em Back!’

By July 7, 2005Dobbs Watch

Dobbs WatchPerusing Lou Dobbs’ website again tonight (it’s a dark and dreary place) there is the usual story about some lawsuit over illegal immigrants. Yadda, yadda, yadda. So what else is new…? In boredom, and with not a little trepidation we clicked on “Lou’s World: Surf Lou’s Favorite Websites”. Cowabunga! The fourth one listed is the “Center for Immigration Studies“. So we clicked on it, just to see what we could see. Talk about dreary!

First, in the center, it screams out the headline: “Births to Illegal Aliens at an All-Time High”. Time to grab your best brown shirts and head for the hills, we guess. But the coup de grace is underneath, the legend that says, “This day in immigration” (we’re not making this up). It says:

July 6, 1798 – The Alien Enemy Act provides that in the case of declared war or invasion, the President of the U.S. has the power to restrain or remove alien enemy males over the age of fourteen, with protection towards their property rights.

Ah, don’t we long for the good ol’ days when we could just pack ’em up and send ’em back? Apparently Lou Dobbs and his Dobbers get all nostalgic for the good times when they read stuff like this from, uh…., 1798. That would be 207 years ago.

Some of this stuff is just beyond the pale, no?
