Lou Dobbs won't retract.
Dobbs claims that there have been 7,000 new cases of leprosy in the U.S. in recent years. The Center cites the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, which reported that leprosy peaked in 1985 with 361 cases and has declined since then.
Dobbs attributes the increase to "unscreened illegal immigrants." His source is the late Madeleine Cosman, according to the Poverty Center, an "anti-immigration zealot who once publicly stated that 'most' Latina immigrant men 'molest girls under 12, although some specialize in boys, and some in nuns.'"
Dobbs refuses to retract his claims, charges the Poverty Center.
