Tonight: Governor Carcieri goes on Lou Dobbs' program
Governor Carcieri will be a guest on Lou Dobbs' program on CNN tonight to talk about his order cracking down on illegal immigration.
Carcieri’s "brief appearance" is slated for about 7:40 p.m. according to CNN producers, the governor's office said in a news release this afternoon.
The CNN Web site highlighting Dobbs' program says, under the title "Broken Borders":
"And we'll be joined by Rhode Island Governor Donald Carcieri who is cracking down on illegal immigration in his state. His new executive order calls for state agencies and the companies they do business with to verify the legal status of their workers."
Dobbs is anchor and managing editor of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" and he also is anchor of a radio report on financial news that is nationally syndicated, according to a biography on the CNN site.
The online biography says Dobbs has receive the Eugene Katz Award for Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration from the Center for Immigration Studies for his series "Broken Borders," which the biography describes as examining U.S. policy towards illegal immigration.
The Center for Immigration Studies, on its Web site, includes a transcript of a speaker's remarks about Dobbs' receiving the a2004 ward that include criticism of some media coverage of immigration. Read the transcript here.
The governor's order, which he has said can save money the state currrently spends on illegal immigrants, has provoked controversy, with members of the state's clergy calling for him to reconsider it and advocates for immigrants denouncing it.
