Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- April 10
    Wian: Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is demanding that Immigration and Customs Enforcement stop targeting employers who hire illegal aliens. He says ICE raids are bad for business.
    ...A spokeswoman says ICE has conducted just one major worksite raid in Los Angeles in more than a year. [...]

    Dobbs: How does this mayor in any way square off this absolutely irrational, contradictory approach on sanctuary, on 287-G, on a host of other elements of our immigration law?
