Lou Dobbs: “I Have Done Nothing Illegal”

On MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell," Lou Dobbs challenges the reporter for The Nation who wrote that he hired undocumented workers.

"The bottom line is I have done nothing illegal," he said, adding "I have hired no illegal immigrants, no company of mine has hired illegal immigrants and that is the essential fact."

Dobbs also challenged the notion that he was taking a hard line on illegal immigration, noting that he has never argued for deporting the undocumented workers already in the country.
