Lou Dobbs (b. Childress, Texas; September 24, 1945 ) is an American journalist and columnist. He is the CNN anchor and managing editor for Lou Dobbs Tonight. Dobbs was originally conservative, but now he describes himself as an "independent populist" critic of the "excesses of capitalism." He has focused on immigration for years. He recently had trouble with the Anti-Defamation League on issues of promoting racism and prejudices about illigal immigrants and supporting so called "minute men" who hunt for illigal immigrants at the border.

Dobbs has won almost every award in journalism and he's a best-selling author and columnist. He's an independent populist and the leading media advocate for working men and women, their families, our middle class and the American way of life. [1]

Political views

Once a self-described "Lifelong Republican" and fiscal conservative, Dobbs now considers himself an "independent populist" and criticizes what he sees as the "excesses of capitalism." Illegal immigration is one such excess that he scrutinizes on his television program. He is opposed to amnesty for illegal aliens and advocates enforcement of existing immigration laws, along with a tightening of border security. On trade Dobbs advocates protectionist restrictions in order to protect American industry, and maintain U.S. sovereignty. Positions that are not regularly covered on Dobb's show include a pro-death stance on abortion, an opposition to gun control measures, and support for the gay agenda.


  • Exporting America: Why Corporate Greed Is Shipping American Jobs Overseas (2004).
  • Space: The Next Business Frontier (2005).
  • War on the Middle Class (2006). "The middle class is being picked apart and its future mortgaged for the benefit of a small group of powerful American interests," Dobbs says in this book.

Lou is married to Debi Lee Segura (a one-time CNN sports anchor, apparently of Mexican heritage[Citation Needed]). They have four children: Chance, Jason, Hilary and Heather. They reside on a 300-acre horse farm in Sussex County, New Jersey.
