Andrea Nill promotes false Obama claim in smear of Lou Dobbs - 03/03/10

... 2006. Given that, you might not expect Andrea Nill of ThinkProgress to write the following, unless you were familiar with that site and her work.

Hilda Solis puts interests of immigrants, illegal aliens ahead of U.S. workers, sounds just like George Bush - 12/17/09

Various sources [1] have recently called for moratoriums on various kinds of immigration and increased immigration enforcement in order to free up jobs for Americans.
