Lou Dobbs Plans to Run For Senate, Flips-Flops On Immigration Stance

Former CNN host Lou Dobbs, known for being a staunch opponent of amnesty for undocumented immigrants, is now suddenly pro-immigrant? In a recent interview with telemundo, Dobbs said, “Whatever you have thought of me in the past, I can tell you right now that I am one of your greatest friends and I mean for us to work together.” He later added, “We need the ability to legalize illegal immigrants under certain conditions,” reported NYdailynews.

Whats interesting about Dobbs’ comments is that they come at a time where he is leaning toward running for State Senate in 2012, and possibly for President. Now does this look like a scenario you have seen before?

In recent years as an anchor on CNN, Dobbs claimed that “an invasion of illegal aliens” had caused a spike in U.S. leprosy cases – a report later dismissed as factually incorrect, reports NYdailynews

The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, an anti-immigration group that in 2008 raised over $660,000 in pledges aimed at convincing Dobbs to run for president, have withdrawn their support of him.
