This week’s American Legion conference in Washington has had no shortage of high-profile guests. The organization’s 1,400 attendees have heard from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), Army Secretary Pete Geren and Veterans Affairs Secretary James B. Peake.

They also met with Brig. Gen. Gregory J. Zanetti, the deputy commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, who spoke about the upcoming commissions and told the group “what we’re not seeing and hearing about Guantanamo,” according to Legion spokeswoman Ramona Joyce.

While the Legionnaires might find coverage of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, lacking, there is one key news purveyor who does not disappoint.

That man is Lou Dobbs, who will receive the organization’s National Commander’s Public Relations Award today because he “has been a tireless and true leader in the fight against illegal immigration,” according to a statement by National Commander Martin “Marty” Conatser.

“Lou Dobbs is a true American patriot,” he said.

Immigration is a key issue for the group, Joyce said, primarily because of its national security implications and because of a focus on law and order.

“When we signed up in the military we said we’d uphold the Constitution, and part of that is also being a law-abiding citizen,” she said. “We’re a land of laws, and some people don’t want to enforce the laws.”

    Thought we could send this to LA Raza as a follow up for their next movie advertisement since they like to mention Lou Dobbs?

    The Huffington Post has obtained a new commercial for the Fox Searchlight/Weinstein picture, ?Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna),? a Spanish language film that debuted last week to a box office record.
    The commercial, which will premiere tomorrow, features several digs at CNN?s anti-immigrant crusader Lou Dobbs, such as, ?TIME Magazine raves that ?Adrian Alonso could melt Lou Dobbs? heart, if he had one.??”*

    I watch Lou Dobbs all the time and I think he is still the only MSM person who talks about illegal immigration, the NAU and outsourcing, H1B visas.

    I am still puzzled, however, why Ron Paul is practically “Persona non grata” on his show and why when Frosty Wooldridge did his (21st Century Paul Revere Ride) that he never mentioned this once, even though I emailed him several times about this…..sometimes as much as three times a week….I would have thought Lou Dobbs would have been estatic about this.
