Dobbs, The Border And Faith

Lou Dobbs has used his anchor slot at CNN to campaign for a militarized border for a number of years now. But to give credit where it's due, he's offered the microphone to leaders of different faith traditions in this past week to talk about how and why they have become involved in U.S. immigration policies. In one interview he talks with (transcript) Rev. Bob Edgar, the General Secretary the National Council of Churches. In another (transcript) he interviews Richard Foltin, the legislative director and council for the American Jewish Committee, and Bishop Jaime Soto, board member of The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, and an adviser for the U.S. Catholic bishops on Immigration issues. The interviews are late in his show, so they're low on the transcripts -- scroll way down to read.
