A few days ago I speculated that, like anti-gay activists who turn out to be closeted homosexuals, many of the people who protest the loudest against illegal immigrants are guilty of hiring them. And that was before Lou Dobbs was exposed as an utter hypocrite.
Helpfully enough, Ranker has provided a list of the “Top 6 Anti-Immigration Activists Caught Using Illegal Labor”.
Top of the list is Lou Dobbs, of course, followed by Meg Whitman and Mitt Romney. The next three are less well known, but just as interesting.
Lorraine Henderson is the Boston regional director for Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection. But that didn’t stop her from getting arrested for breaking the laws she is supposed to enforce.
Linda Chavez was Dubya’s nominee to be the Secretary of Labor. She would have been the first Latina on a president’s cabinet, except she was derailed by the revelation that she housed an illegal alien and paid her to do household chores, breaking a multitude of labor laws.
And finally, Michael Huffington, ex-husband of Ariana Huffington of the Huffington Post and LGBT activist. He was a strong supporter of California’s anti-illegal-immigrant proposition until someone found out that he had employed an illegal immigrant as a nanny in his home.
