Talk show host Lou Dobbs is one of the country's most prominent critics of illegal immigration a global free trade.
Within the Tea Party movement he's loved among those who want to secure our border.
But many libertarians are not necessarily.
Fans of mr.
dobbs will welcome here who do we really immigrants have the same natural human rights -- the rest of us.
I believe in the -- the rights that we have created on this continent.
Some 200 years ago whether they are natural rights for the one wants to get into hobbes -- -- The fact is we fought for the rights we have the rights are American and uniquely ours.
-- rights come from humanity.
I mean my right to think can speak and say what I want our right to travel my right to be left I don't I don't think from my humanity now from my American.
So no because.
Africans are human Asians are human.
South Americans are human but in Venezuela and China.
You know you're going to find quite a different outcome if -- -- -- is human but not.
Blessed with the rights that are ours as American tonight.
Think that that -- -- -- should the police be able to stop persons they think are illegal immigrants on the streets and say show me your papers.
By the way by law as you know judge they are entitled to do several that are not entitled to do it under the constitution Arizona's a different case on our -- Arizona I'm talking about Mueller be -- The 2005.
Supreme Court decision -- winning what without getting into the weeds here that Supreme Court decision has to do with questions can be asked in custody out on the street.
But but if somebody.
That looks like I didn't sleeps in the sun doesn't -- for two days and goes jogging to the police stop and say it surely your papers.
Yours if they are doing so only because they are Hispanic.
Absolutely not and that is precisely what is prescribed in the Arizona anti illegal immigration law by the way it is as you well know.
It is a far more -- far stricter piece of legislation prescribing.
Racial profiling than the federal law are you now pro immigration.
I've always been pro immigration or perceived in the media as being -- staunchest defender of walls around the port.
Well and the national media the national moving -- through one easy premiere of the premier partner that's well I was and am I believe -- still a reasonable.
-- humble -- element of it.
But the fact is the national lazy liberal media.
Is there is absolutely in concert with the Obama administration and previously the Bush Administration -- and moving a propaganda agenda forward.
Because I was opposed to illegal immigration I had to be attacked by the -- and the various factions and laws and rather successfully and compliant vehicle Orion -- poor what has called what you have described as.
This mess -- employers who hire.
Illegal immigrants or the illegal immigrants themselves who come here looking for a better world a better life judge I have said all along through out.
This -- This debacle this crisis of illegal immigration and open borders and a complete lack of border security.
I -- the only rational actor is the illegal immigrant himself or herself why is illegal immigrant the only rational actor because employers are taking advantage of a system in this country exploding those very people who are trying to improve their lives.
And understandably so.
Are they are saying the hell with a national interest and they're giving away with -- because they are influencing public policy.
Through the US chamber of commerce through the business roundtable it through the Democratic Party now it's great for the Republicans is it wrong for employers to pay lower wages for illegal immigrants or that we -- -- pay ten dollars for every tomato eat.
I want to pay a fair price for what ever -- buying because I expect every American.
To be able to provide for his and her family.
For their children and to build and continue to strengthen a middle class society.
There has been the birthright in this country since we were found if I can buy a tomato cheaper in Mexico or car cheaper in China should -- be able to do it -- -- -- -- -- it or should the government have a right to tell me that I can only buy American while no I don't think the government should have that right.
And I think you as an American citizen should have enough patriotism and enough concern and care for your fellow citizens.
That by god it's important to you as to how your fellow citizens live.
And understand the impact of public policies and philosophies and ideology -- That work against the interest of this nation.
And against a common root of the American here I think it should be a moral choice to buy American not legal compulsion I think -- should be a national choice it is built on a system a political system that makes this economy fossil why should the first company with -- should trade write -- name is not telling you.
I'm asking you to be a man of intellect and conscience and care and concern as -- Citizen of the greatest democracy on this planet.
And understand what the consequences of your actions are to be an adult.
And to be responsible for your choice.
