Lou Dobbs: Law Day: Celebrate Original Intent Not Immigration Day

CNN's Lou Dobbs wonders why the hosts are announcing today is Immigration Day and the blurb at the bottom of the screen says we're celebrating Immigration Day... chastizes executive directors of his own network for not understanding it's Law Day.

May Day began as Law Day, designed to promote and celebrate upholding the law, says Dobbs.

After Dobbs interview by Ari on CNN afternoon programming, and after Dobbs left the set, Ari introduced video of the Milwaulkie and Chicago Immigration Day rally, as Immigration Day, Law Day, whatever you want to call it...

Very interesting. To Dobbs credit, he says exactly what he means, and means exactly what he says.

Dobbs will talk about these issues during his radio program.

The Lou Dobbs Show is broadcast live on this site from 3-6PM Eastern Time

May Day, May Day: All-purpose, left-wing grievance day; West Coast port shutdowns expected

On May Day 2008, National Immigrant Solidarity Network is calling for a multi-ethnic, decentralized, multi-topic and multi-tactic national day of mobilization to support immigrant workers rights.

1. No to anti-immigrant legislation, and the criminalization of the immigrant communities.
2. No to militarization of the border.
3. No to the immigrant detention and deportation.
4. No to the guest worker program.
5. No to employer sanction and “no match” letters.
6. Yes to a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
7. Yes to speedy family reunification.
8. Yes to civil rights and humane immigration law.
9. Yes to labor rights and living wages for all workers.
10. Yes to the education and LGBT immigrant legislation.

We acknowledges that there’ll be multiple call to actions from across the country to organize May Day 2008, and each coalition will present their sets of demands.
