This is why:
On September 15 and 16, Dobbs is scheduled to broadcast his radio show from Capitol Hill as a leading voice of the annual “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” legislative advocacy conference and rally sponsored by the rabidly anti-immigrant organization Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
Founded by a man with a history of espousing racist beliefs and who remains on its board, FAIR is labeled as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Dobbs’ participation — and, through him, CNN’s — will bestow mainstream legitimacy on the rally and on FAIR, something FAIR recognizes and is bragging about to its members.

Dobbs must not be allowed to participate in this event.
