Oh, but what about the children?

LOU DOBBS: Seven-year-old Saul Arellano, a pawn in the battle over illegal immigration, appeared before Mexico's Congress today. Arellano's mother, an illegal alien, has taken refuge in a Chicago church in an effort to avoid her deportation from the United States over the past three months. She has been deported before.

The boy is an American citizen. And immigration advocates and the boy's mother apparently see no problem in using her 7-year-old son as an outright political pawn.

A little American boy is trying to keep his mother here, with him, in America by talking about her situation to anyone who will tune in.

A rich American man is boosting his ratings and helping his network sell advertising by talking about this same woman to anyone who will tune in.

Regardless of how you feel about illegal immigration, that's basically the story here. Dobbs helped make this boy's mom a piece of national news. He's advocated for this boy's mother to be deported.

Now he's concerned about the boy?
