Lou Dobbs Doesn’t Think 2012 Rumors Are Crazy at All, Actually

First, though, he’s trying to smooth things over with various entities he has angered over the years, like Latino groups who didn’t appreciate his discredited claims that “about a third of the prison population in this country is estimated to be illegal aliens” or that illegal immigrants were responsible for an outbreak of leprosy.
